Network performance is at the heart of stakes in our ever-connected world, so that it is exciting to see that, the cloud and automation offer a powerful opportunity to evolve and advance the network, bringing together once disparate technologies and teams.
In fact, the trends of cloud, big data, and microservices demand ever increasing speed, scale, and flexibility in network infrastructure.
Based on this reality, Red Hat,Inc. , a provider of open source solutions, is bringing DevOps to networking by extending Ansible ; its powerful IT automation and DevOps platform ; to include native agentless support for automating heterogeneous network infrastructure devices using the same simple human and machine readable automation language that Ansible provides to IT teams.
One can then observe that, with expanded Ansible networking capabilities, Red Hat is aiming to help you orchestrate entire application infrastructures, including network devices, with one automation tool.
You can inter alia benefit from increased IT agility that bridges the traditional divide between IT operations and networking teams.
