Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

More Ansible Pros »

"It is very easy to make a software release. It used to take us at least a couple of hours to make a release, now we went to production with a new one last night.
