Automation with Ansible II: Ansible Tower – ROLE


Product Description

Automation with Ansible II: Ansible Tower (DO409) is designed for IT professionals who use Ansible by Red Hat® and need to centrally manage their Ansible projects in a way that scales to large teams and complex enterprise installations using Ansible Tower by Red Hat.

This course will teach students how to deploy and use Ansible Tower by Red Hat to manage their existing Ansible projects, playbooks, and roles, perform basic maintenance and administration of the Ansible Tower installation, and configure users and teams and use them to control access to systems, projects, and other resources through role-based access controls. Students will also learn to use the visual dashboard to centrally launch, control, and monitor Ansible jobs, use the Ansible Tower application programming interface (API) to launch jobs from existing templates, and automatically schedule Ansible jobs and update the host inventory.

Scalability. Visibility. Security.

Ansible Tower by Red Hat is the best way to run Ansible in your company. While each company and infrastructure is unique, this course is aimed at implementing scalable, centralized control of Ansible automation for the enterprise, which:

  • Enables DevOps practices, resulting in higher staff productivity.
  • Provides a single point of visibility into Ansible operation for accountability and compliance.
  • Improves security through centralized logging and access controls on automation jobs and machine credentials.

This Ansible training is based on Ansible Tower 3, Ansible 2, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux® 7.
