More than 9 hours of video instruction to first get you started using Ansible, and then help you use Ansible to automate the configuration of systems and applications.

This title includes two courses. Ansible Fundamentals LiveLessons provides a quick introduction to Ansible for administrators and developers who want to get started in a fast and easy way without spending too much time on details. Automating with Ansible LiveLessons then builds on those basics to show you how to automate the configuration of systems and applications.

Since it was first released, Ansible has become one of the most used systems for configuration management. You will start with an introduction to working with Ansible, including essential configuration to get you started as quickly as possible. You then learn about Ansible architecture and essential Ansible components, including playbooks, variables, task control, flow control, conditionals, and Jinja2 templates. Every lesson ends with a lab and lab solution, so you can see firsthand how to use Ansible in your own work.

You will then move on to using DevOps. Learn how Vagrant can be used to set up an environment with virtual machines, and how to set up an IT Infrastructure with Ansible that you can follow along through the instructor demonstrations. Van Vugt also discusses how to manage Windows, network equipment, as well as cloud infrastructure with Ansible.

Next, the more advanced Ansible features are demonstrated, such as working with roles, task control, and using Ansible Vault followed by walk-through examples of Ansible optimization and troubleshooting. In the last lesson, learn how to work with Ansible Tower, which helps to efficiently use Ansible in a datacenter environment.

This course can also be used as a secondary resource to get you started studying for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Ansible Automation (exam 407).
