Ansible Fundamentals

Course Summary

The Ansible Fundamentals course demonstrates the flexibility and power of the Ansible configuration management system, and how it can be used to build and scale highly reliable infrastructure.

The course begins by examining how Ansible can be utilized to manage environments as small as a couple of servers or for massively distributed infrastructure that spans the globe. Next, it illustrates the knowledge needed to integrate Ansible into your operations workflow. The course concludes by demonstrating how to build reliable and easily reproducible infrastructure using Ansible.

Prerequisites: A basic understanding of Linux/Unix system concepts and familiarity with Command Line Interface (CLI).
