Using Ansible to build servers and automation


There are no agents or software deployed on the clients/
servers to work with Ansible. The connection can be
done through the SSH or using the Python.


The Ansible uses modules to automate, configure, deploy,
and orchestrate the IT Infrastructure. There are around 750 +
modules built-in Ansible.

Secure and consistent

Since the Ansible uses SSH and Python it is very secure and the
operations are flawless.

Low Overhead

As it is agentless and does not require any servers, daemons, or
databases it can provide a lot of space in the systems and has low
overhead in terms of deployment.

English Like Language

is very simple and it is English like the language used called YAML.


Ansible comes with a whole lot of features and can be used to
manage the Operating systems, IT Infrastructure, the networks, the
servers, and services in very less time.


Leveraging SSH and Python, Ansible ensures both security and flawless operations, providing a consistent automation solution.


The Ansible’s performance is excellent and has very little
