AAP is a powerful and open-source automation platform that consists of two key components: the Automation Controller (AWX) and the Ansible Automation Hub (Galaxy NG).
An advanced developer laptop running Ubuntu 22.04 serves as the foundation for the local development environment. Its capabilities empower engineers to tackle demanding tasks efficiently.
An open approach facilitates the reuse of ideas and code, not only within projects but even across different organizations.
Discover how to streamline the creation and management of RWS SSL/TLS certificates and Java KeyStores using Ansible, integrating manual steps seamlessly.
Fundamental transformation of IT service delivery and management: Technical Application Management (TAM) becomes a software discipline.
Experience unparalleled flexibility and productivity through local development, a reality realized by embracing the the “open, unless” approach.
Galaxy is a central place for discovering and sharing Ansible content.
Explore the six maturity levels of automation, each building upon the other like interconnected LEGO blocks. From Infrastructure-as-Code with Ansible as the foundation, to advanced stages like Configuration-as-Code, Policy-as-Code, Code Pipelines, Orchestration (K8s), and Event-Driven Automation.
Vagrant provides a user-friendly platform for creating and managing simple local development environments, streamlining the setup process.
Vagrant images for LXD, VirtualBox.
Lightweight and agile, LXD offers swift virtualization of VMs, combining the benefits of traditional VMs with the agility of Docker containers.
Ansible Inventory, Ansible Collection, Ansible Role, and Ansible Execution Environment are different types of projects related to Ansible. This section provides an overview of each project type and their significance in the Ansible ecosystem.
Unlock the power of the development environment and create fully integrated, comprehensive systems. With a few simple commands you can explore for example the automation driving deployment and management of a GIS Platform at Rijkswaterstaat (RWS).
In the ever-evolving landscape of IT service delivery, the concept of Automation stands as a pivotal force driving the transition from traditional practices to the dynamic realms of DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). Automation is not merely about mechanizing tasks; it is the catalyst that propels organizations toward efficient, scalable, and resilient IT operations.
In cases where LXD is not feasible, VirtualBox offers a reliable alternative. It provides pre-configured VM images, including options for Microsoft Windows targets, ensuring compatibility across diverse environments.
Comprehensive open source solution for IT automation
Visual Studio Code offers a rich set of features, including syntax highlighting, linting, debugging, Git integration, and an extensive range of extensions. These capabilities simplify tasks such as playbook creation and inventory management.
Operating Ansible, developing roles and collections Ansible and using Ansible for ad-hoc tasks are separate disciplines.
Unlimited and unrestricted usage of an advanced software development platform for all disciplines, from version control to project management and CI/CD workloads.
Clear and comprehensive documentation that fosters collaboration and optimizes automation projects.
