AnsibleWorks today announced it has joined the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program as a Technology Partner. Ansible is an easytouse, open source IT automation solution that excels at automating IT activities from application deployment, configuration management, and complex IT automation tasks such as turning a zerodowntime rolling update of infrastructure into a oneclick automated process.
Ansible is popular for its language simplicity, but also for its network security focus and ability to easily model multitier IT processes of all kinds, rather than strictly OS setup tasks.
AnsibleWorks’ enterprise solution, AWX, supercharges Ansible by providing a modern user interface and bestinclass REST API on top of the Ansible automation solution. AWX focuses on improving team workflow, rolebased access control, centralized logging and pushbutton access to triggering a variety of IT automation tasks.
