Introduction to Ansible

Ansible is a configuration management tool, much like Puppet, Chef and CF Engine. It’s used to automate the configuration of servers and network devices. Although it benefits infrastructures of all sizes, tools like it are essential in agile¬†data centers where you expect to do a lot of scale-out architectures. One of the main benefits of Ansible over other configuration management tools is that unlike most, it is agentless and, therefore, does not need to be tied down to a master server.
