Ansible: Up and Running, 2nd Edition
Ansible: Up and Running, 2nd Edition

Among the many configuration management tools available, Ansible has some distinct advantages - it's minimal in nature, you don't need to install anything on your nodes, and it has an easy learning curve. With this updated second edition, you'll learn how to be productive with this tool quickly, whether you're a developer deploying code to production or a system administrator looking for a better automation solution. Authors Lorin Hochstein and René Moser show you how to write playbooks (Ansible's configuration management scripts), manage remote servers, and explore the tool's real power: built-in declarative modules. You'll discover that Ansible has the functionality you need - and the simplicity you desire. Manage Windows machines, and automate network device configuration; Manage your fleet from your web browser with Ansible Tower; Understand how Ansible differs from other configuration management systems; Use the YAML file format to write your own ...

Ansible Playbook Essentials
Ansible Playbook Essentials

Ansible combines configuration management, orchestration, and parallel command execution into a single tool. Its batteries-included approach and built-in module library makes it easy to integrate it with cloud platforms, databases, and notification services without requiring additional plugins. Playbooks in Ansible define the policies your systems under management enforce. They facilitate effective configuration management rather than running ad hoc scripts to deploy complex applications. This book will show you how to write a blueprint of your infrastructure encompassing multi-tier applications using Ansible's playbooks. Beginning with the basic concepts such as plays, tasks, handlers, inventory, and the YAML syntax that Ansible uses, you will see how to organize your code into a modular structure. Building on this, you will master techniques to create data-driven playbooks with variables, templates, logical constructs, and encrypted data. This book will also t ...
