About this video

Ansible is a simple IT automation engine that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs. Designed for multi-tier deployments from day one, Ansible models IT infrastructure by describing how all the systems interrelate, rather than just managing one system at a time. This course will guide you through multiple topics to make you understand and master Ansible.

The course starts with the learning objectives and introduces you to Ansible. Next, you will learn how to set up the environment by installing the Ansible lab, Docker, and configuring the Secure Shell (SSH) connectivity between hosts. Moving along, you will study the architecture, modules, playbooks, and YAML Ain’t Markup Language (YAML) syntaxes used in Ansible. Next, you will learn how to structure advanced Ansible playbooks and uncover techniques to use Ansible with cloud services and containers. Towards the end, you will learn how to use Ansible for validation, testing, and troubleshooting.

By the end of this course, you will have mastered the basic and advanced concepts of the Ansible and will have developed the skills needed to work on real-world Ansible projects.
