A cornerstone of the DevOps principal is to achieve frequent deployments that are risk-free and simple to perform – and using deployment automation tools such as Ansible, Puppet or Chef is the key to successful implementation. Such tools follow the principals of “infrastructure as code”, allowing you to define your infrastructure as a set of instructions that build it from scratch – from provisioning the necessary virtual machines, right through to installing required software and deploying your application.
By turning your infrastructure build into code, you can apply common development principals such as source control, patching and controlled releases, giving you the kind of control that you need to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
With this session aimed at those who are new to Ansible, we will talk through what Ansible is, what it does, and how to use it, before demonstrating how you can use it to configure your cloud infrastructure in AWS, provision a JBoss FUSE fabric to host the applications, and then deploy an example application to it.
Attendees will get a good understanding of how they can use automated deployment and infrastructure as code technologies, and how these can help them in their DevOps journey.
