Patrick Regan presented a talk on Ansible at the Akron Linux Users Group on May 2, 2013.
Here’s a few stills I took:
I’m glad I was present to record Patrick’s talk. I was sad to learn that John Woodall, a long time member of the group has decided to relocate to Georgia for good. Good luck John!
Here’s hoping Patrick’s demonstration of the tool is useful to Chris and others like him that are still thinking about using Ansible to “Orchestrate from above”.
If you’d like to (from time to time) keep up with creator of Ansible, Michael Dehaan, please do so by reading his blog here: http://michaeldehaan.net/
I did read some of Michael’s thoughts after the talk and learned about him forming Ansible Works Inc, a company that assists with everything .. well .. Ansible!
Another resource I found useful was the following chart which compares Ansible with its counterparts in use by system engineers today:
Sit back, relax and hear Patrick talk about and demo Ansible to see if it fits your environment!
