Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"Ansible provides great reliability when coupled with a versioning system (git). It helps providing predictability to the network by knowing exactly what's being pushed after validating it in production.""It has improved our organization through provisioning and security hardening. When we do get a new VM, we have been able to bring on a provisional machine in less than a day. This morning alone, I provisioned two machines within an hour. I am talking about hardening, installing antivirus software on it, and creating user accounts because the Playbooks were predesigned. From the time we got the servers to the actual hand-off, it takes less than an hour. We are talking about having the servers actually authenticate Red Hat Satellites and run the yum updates. All of that can be done within an hour."

More Ansible Pros »

"This product is an innovative market leader in the field of application deployment.""The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is vendor-agnostic and it has a file called Manifest, which makes it possible for developers, ops people, and system admins to cooperate."

More Deploy Pros »

"Accessibility. Ansible uses a CLI by default. Those accustomed to it can find their way and adopt the YAML files easily over time. But, some users are more comfortable using UIs...""When you set up Playbooks, I may have one version of the Playbook, but another member of the team may have a different vision, and we will not know which version is correct. We want to have one central repository for managing the different versions of Playbooks, so we can have better collaboration among team members. This is our use case for using Git version control."

More Ansible Cons »

"While it is a flexible product and provides a means of integrating with virtually anything, the company should make a better effort to keep up with new platform integrations.""The solution currently has a bug that causes performance issues. They need to resolve this in a future release."
