SIMPLE. POWERFUL. AGENTLESS.
First, server infrastructure. Now, network infrastructure. The same benefits of Ansible for compute nodes is now extended to physical networks, software-defined networks, and cloud-based networks.
Physical network devices
Switches, routers, load balancers, firewalls, etc.
You have loads of existing networking gear. Ansible can help. Leverage the existing network CLI commands you know and love to get automating quickly across 45+ networking platforms.
Software defined networks
Top-level controller management
SDN controllers can manage specific networking platforms, but what if you have multiple SDN platforms? Ansible can “manage the managers” and provide top-level automation for many purpose-built software-based controllers.
Cloud based networks
Interconnecting hybrid clouds
Moving compute workloads to and from private and public clouds sounds easy, but how do you build out and automate those networks in a repeatable and scalable fashion? Let Ansible handle the details while you focus on your workloads.
