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

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).
