Automate OpenStack using Ansible

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

Ansible offers unique flexibility when automating your infrastructure.

I demonstrated how I manage OpenStack using Terraform in my previous article. Using Terraform as Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is a significant advantage, but it also requires the staff to support it. Sometimes, all you really need is the ability to provision infrastructure as timed resources, with no intention of building lasting data structures. When I design a flexible environment, I prefer the declarative language of Ansible.
