Cloudify and Ansible
Ansible has been named the simplest way to automate infrastructure. It truly is a useful service, and can be used for numerous purposes including application deployment, configuration management, and continuous delivery. However, it is not without its limitations. Ansible automation lacks the needed to tools for continuously managing services and forces users to explicitly program execution tasks. With Cloudify in play, Ansible can be taken to the next level particularly when it comes to automation and orchestration. Let’s dive in a little more.
Cloudify’s Ansible orchestration allows for better organization, management of interactions, and simplifying complex tasks. As well as using an intent based orchestration model enabling continuous service management. Cloudify’s ability for total Ansible automation frees up some much needed time, allowing managers to focus on other tasks.
Cloudify's AWX Plugin
Red Hat Ansible ‘AWX’ (The AWX Project) is an open source code project giving users even more abilities in regards to control, orchestration and automation of their deployments and environments. It was designed to work on top of Ansible. More specifically it is the open source-code for Ansible tower, built almost entirely by the Ansible community.
Adding to Cloudify’s long list of “out of the box” plugins, Cloudify now offers the perfect plugin for the AWX Project. Integrating Cloudify with AWX gives users better control over service components across different applications, network services and sites. This provides upgraded Ansible automation possibilities over multiple cloud environments and enables users to put their public and private cloud under one consistent automation framework.
