About the Bundle
You can't afford to develop an application these days without some understanding of the systems supporting your application. And you can't spend time developing your application when you're wasting time managing your infrastructure and tweaking configurations by hand. We have you covered—learn how to manage your servers with Servers for Hackers, then learn how to automate everything and build a robust infrastructure with Ansible for DevOps!
Ansible for DevOps
Server and configuration management for humans
Ansible is a simple, but powerful, server and configuration management tool (with a few other tricks up its sleeve). This book helps those familiar with the command line and basic shell scripting start using Ansible to provision and manage anywhere from one to thousands of servers.
The book begins with fundamentals, like installing Ansible, setting up a basic inventory file, and basic concepts, then guides you through Ansible's many uses, including ad-hoc commands, basic and advanced playbooks, application deployments, multiple-provider server provisioning, and even Docker orchestration! Everything is explained with pertinent real-world examples, often using Vagrant-managed virtual machines.
Examples in the book are tested with the latest version of Ansible (2.x as of this writing).
