About this video

Configuration management is complicated, with a need for high availability, failover, and continuous updates and maintenance. Ansible 2 is a powerful automation tool that can help you manage the configuration of all your servers, whether you work on-premise or in the cloud.

With this course, you can quickly start using Ansible to automate the installation, configuration, and updates, ensuring that your systems are configured the right way automatically. You will then customize Ansible's behavior with variables, and apply similar automation to groups of servers. Next, you will work with roles, which will give you the ability to perform any required automation on your servers when it comes to installing, configuring, and running software. You'll manage servers and other resources in Amazon Web Services, then build Docker containers to deploy them to Kubernetes. You will also work with Ansible's power-user features with custom facts and custom modules.

By the end of the course, you will have worked through hands-on examples of Ansible 2 configuration management, enabling you to immediately start automating your own systems.
