Ansible is software that automates software provisioning, configuration management, and application deployment. Ansible is a radically simple IT automation platform that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy. Avoid writing scripts or custom code to deploy and update your applications— automate in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.

individual contributor and then as an employee of Red Hat.

2)Then we will see how Ansible can be easily implemented in a DevOps environment.

3)Lastly, will discuss the pros and cons of Ansible over other config-management tools
like puppet and chef.
