This book takes you beyond the basics of Ansible, showing you real-world examples of AWS infrastructure automation and management using Ansible, with detailed steps, complete codes, and screen captures from AWS console. Also, learn how to use Ansible dynamic inventory to easily manage EC2 instances configuration.
