New redbook! Red Hat Ansible for AIX, IBM i and Linux on IBM Power

Today we are in luck, IBM has just published the draft of the reedbook that we have been waiting for months. In it we will see how the integration of Ansible in IBM Power environments has opened a new world of possibilities for the automated administration of this type of systems, thanks to the growing support from Red Hat: not only for the different Linux distributions, but also for AIX, IBM i, HMC consoles and VIOS servers, fundamental components of the IBM Power platform.

Ansible, the leading-edge automation technology, has found fertile ground in the robust and powerful IBM Power systems. With its sophisticated architecture and support for a variety of operating systems, IBM Power is positioned as an ideal choice for companies seeking exceptional performance and reliable security. Incorporating Ansible into this environment not only improves operational efficiency but also opens up new avenues for application and infrastructure management as code.

The heart of the Ansible revolution in IBM Power lies in its ability to efficiently orchestrate and automate complex tasks. From application deployment to patch management and security configuration, Ansible simplifies traditionally time-consuming processes. Its declarative language, based on YAML and Jinja2, allows users to describe their infrastructures in simple terms, making automation accessible even to those with no programming experience (and perhaps no desire or need to learn).

In addition, Ansible facilitates automated application deployment on Power servers, deftly handling everything from Node.js deployments to multi-tier application orchestration such as OpenShift or OpenStack. This versatility makes it an indispensable tool for day-to-day operations in Linux, AIX and IBM i environments, covering critical aspects such as storage, security, and configuration settings.
