Introduction

One of the objectives of validating and architecting solutions is to make the solution easily consumable. Therefore, it is paramount that the deployment and configuration of infrastructure and/or applications delivered through our solutions is simplified through automation. NetApp is committed to simplifying solution consumption through automation using RedHat Ansible.

Ansible is an open-source automation engine that helps IT teams automate application deployment, cloud provisioning, configuration management, and many other IT needs. Ansible is agentless and does not require a custom security infrastructure. You can manage the automation of multiple systems from your control system remotely via SSH making it a robust solution for IT teams looking to automate their tedious and repetitive IT needs.

If you are new to NetApp solution automation, you can use the following sections to set up your Ansible controller.
