Configuring or maintaining a single network device, or even a few devices individually isn’t too time consuming. However, when you have the prospect of dozens or hundreds of devices, this isn’t an efficient solution. By utilising APIs built into recent network equipment, or taking advantage of python scripts written by devops engineers, network automation software like ansible can be used to send configuration out to as many network devices as required. Get in touch today if you think this could benefit you!


Ansible from Red Hat can be used in any sized network – from one device to thousands

It can be used as a tool to build your devices, to manage them, and to test, validate and monitor them.

With such a large open source community, its more than likely that what you’re trying to automate has been done before. With modules supporting the likes of Cisco, Arista, Dell, Juniper, Palo Alto and many more, automation takes a lot of the hassle out of network admin.

One of the most valuable features in the ansible arsenal, is the fact it is agentless. This means no end point software is required for it to work with your equipment, and it can be managed from anywhere that has ansible installed. This could be anything from a laptop to a server.
