About the Book

Ansible is an IT automation tool. Learn how to use Ansible to easily provision and manage your Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud infrastructure. Automated infrastructure provisioning and management is a key component of Continuous Delivery and DevOps culture. 

This book will show you how to use Ansible's cloud modules to easily provision and manage your AWS resources including EC2, VPC, RDS, S3, ELB, Auto Scaling, IAM and Route 53. 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.

The example projects will help you grasp the concepts quickly. From a single WordPress site to a highly available and scalable WordPress site, Ansible will help you automate all tasks.

Examples in this book are tested with the latest version of Ansible (2.1.x as of this writing).
