New challenge: design an automation jobs architecture

Posted in Ansible at 11:22 am by alessiodini

Customer often asks me to automate tasks on hundred Linux systems. Those tasks can be very simples as user creation or more complex as operating system customization.
I used ansible reaching the goal but I want to share ansible features with the customer and his colleagues. For this purpose I’m designing a simple architecture composited by:

– GIT as a SCCM
– Ansible as a dedicated automation host
– AWX as a orchestrator

The idea is to write code ( playbooks, perl, bash, python, etc.etc. ) and to publish it to GIT repository. AWX takes the code and let ansible executing it giving back each detail about the execution.
I want let the customer have a single button called “GO” for multiple tasks automation!
I’m playing with this architecture and I need to make a presentation explaining the details.
Let’s gooooo!! 🙂
