What we learned from this Session!!!!

I have already mentioned importance of automation and role of automation in industry earlier in this article. But there is one more tool which is helping in automation Known as Ansible Tower.

What is ansible tower?

Ansible tower is web-based solution that makes ansible more easy to use in IT industry . It is free open-source tool which is available on git hub with more than qurter million downloads per month.

Ansible tower gives us clustering feature . We can deploy multiple ansible towers and share comman database which helps in redundancy for your automation and scale your automation even your controller node goes down.

It can be used for many tasks like configuration , provisioning , security , application deployement and orchestration.

Key points for automation

  1. Focus on many small tasks rather than a big complex process.
  2. Review what others have automated.
  3. Treat automation like software.
  4. Think out of the box.

Features and usage of Ansible tower

  1. Ansible tower is webui tool for automation. It is easy to use visual tool which gives user freindly experience.
  2. It can be integrated with notification applications like slack , email , etc. Which will help user to get notifications after doing tasks.
  3. We can integrate cloud technolgies like AWS , Azure etc. very easily . For exm. Creating Ec2 instances and using it for work can be automated with ansible tower.
  4. Adding credentials like username , password , secrect key , access key etc. is easier and saffer . We can save credentials in credentials part and use that while running our programs.
  5. Setting workflow and scheduling time for automation is easy with ansible tower.
  6. It is open source software so we can customize as per requirements.

This all are some features , use cases of ansible tower that was introduced and performed practically in that session. Being student of rh294 this all concepts of Ansible tower was new too me but the way sir explained and performed that all concepts I’ve gained lots of knowledge , also loved that session.

Genuine Experience what we got from session

This was really great session in which we got chance to know real world use case of ansible practically . Having this much expertarized instructor for session is also bonus point for us. Way of teaching , examples in session and QnA part was really informative . Concepts was very clear and on the point. Also before this session we have learned ansible in best possible informative way by Sir Vimal Daga , that knowledge taught by Vimal Daga Sir really helpfull while attending this session. Overall that session was really amazing and I think using word “Feedback” for explaining that fabulous session is not proper.

This much of words are also not enough to explain that session but finally I’m ending here.And we are happy to attend more sessions like this.

Thank you!!!!!
