Home/News/Partner blog: Automation for everyone with Red Hat Ansible

Introducing Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform

Red Hat has about seven million active Ansible nodes under management worldwide. All airlines, 82% of commercial banks and 65% of media and technology companies in the Fortune 500 use Ansible Automation Platform, but what is Ansible Automation?

Red Hat Ansible automation is a solution that includes everything you need to build, deploy, and manage end-to-end automation at scale. Ansible works by connecting to your nodes and pushing out small programs, called “Ansible Modules” to them. These programs are written to be resource models of the desired state of the system. Ansible then executes these modules (over SSH by default) and removes them when finished.

Ansible Automation Platform makes it possible for users across an organisation to create, test, and manage automation content through a powerful and agentless framework. It is a more secure, stable, and flexible foundation for deploying end-to-end automation solutions, from IT processes to hybrid cloud, to the edge.  Automating at scale requires a top-down strategy that includes investments in time, technology, and people.

While Red Hat Ansible is at the cutting edge of automation, systems administration, and DevOps, it’s also a valuable tool for developers to use in their daily work while saving time and costs
