Ansible automation tool
This days I’m working to improve my skils about prepare, test and deploy complex IT systems like mail servers or database cluster.
To acomplish this I started using ansible to speed up the operation.
With ansible is quite easy setup a configuration template and the procedure to bring up the new service or re-configure an existing one.
Unlike other automation tools like puppet it don’t require any kind of specialized server, it uses ssh to accesso to all servers and this can be a good solution also to firewall/network ACL issues.
I’m thinking about migrate all my sh script to ansible structure but first I have to make some test.
