Ansible is a radically simple IT orchestration engine that makes your applications and systems easier to deploy. Avoid writing scripts or custom code to deploy and update your applications— automate in a language that approaches plain English, using SSH, with no agents to install on remote systems.

Ansible

Ansible is a radically simple configuration-management, deployment, task-execution, and multinode orchestration framework.

Read the documentation and more at http://ansibleworks.com/

Many users run straight from the development branch (it's generally fine to do so), but you might also wish to consume a release. You can find instructions on http://ansibleworks.com/docs/gettingstarted.html for a variety of platforms. If you want a tarball of the last release, go to http://ansibleworks.com/releases/ and you can also install with pip (though that will bring in some optional binary dependencies you normally do not need).

Design Principles

  • Dead simple setup
  • Super fast & parallel by default
  • No server or client daemons; use existing SSHd
  • No additional software required on client boxes
  • Modules can be written in ANY language
  • Awesome API for creating very powerful distributed scripts
  • Be usable as non-root
  • The easiest config management system to use, ever.
