Ansible is an open-source automation tool and configuration management framework that is used for automating tasks related to IT infrastructure, application deployment, and system administration. It allows you to define and execute automation tasks, known as “playbooks,” in a declarative manner, without the need for extensive programming or scripting skills.
Ansible is often used for tasks such as server provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, and continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) automation. It is known for its simplicity, ease of use, and ability to automate repetitive tasks across a variety of infrastructure and cloud platforms. Ansible is a popular choice among DevOps and system administrators for managing and automating infrastructure and application lifecycles.
