FAQs

Get answers to frequently asked questions about Ansible learning below.

Put simply, Ansible is an automation platform. It’s been around since 2012 and is maintained by developer Red Hat Software. Red Hat describes Ansible as performing “simple IT automation,” and it’s hard to argue with that — over the years, Ansible has become one of the go-to tools for automating complex deployments across machines that hold up companies’ infrastructures or automate other maintenance needs that would otherwise cost teams lots of time to do manually. With a large open source community to support it and the ability to work with many popular technologies, Ansible has become one of the standards for IT automation at scale.
Between its simple setup and open-source support, Ansible is relatively easy to get started with. However, since it supports many IT functions and can be used at scale up to enterprise-level needs, learning how to get the most out of it takes time, training, and often certification to master and make a career out of.
Ansible and Terraform are separate automation tools used widely among IT professionals. Both are open-source, supported by large communities, and used for important automation needs. They can be used separately or even complimentary — the strength of each lies in what your company’s needs are. Put simply, you’ll hear Terraform described as a tool to deploy Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and Ansible as a way to automate the configuration and ongoing management of systems. There are more nuances to learn as you get certified with each tool, however.

Puppet is another powerful tool for helping teams with automation and at-scale IT needs. Both platforms are highly scalable, offer automation and cloud provisioning functionalities, and provide extensive enterprise offerings. Where Ansible has a lower barrier of entry, Puppet has very strong and powerful automation capabilities once its learned. A Cloud Guru has covered these differences both at a glance and in-depth: For more information, see Ansible vs Puppet: Which is right for you?
