A couple of former Red Hat (s rhat) veterans think there's an easier way to configure, deploy and manage IT across an organization and founded AnsibleWorks to attack that problem.
Systems administrators and developers want one tool for deployment, configuration and management -- they don't want to deal with agents and add-ons, said Said Siouani, CEO of Santa Barbara, Calif.-based AnsibleWorks.
The first cut of the Ansible deployment playbook for deploying Eucalyptus private clouds is ready. I've merged the first "release" into the master branch here: https://github.com/lwade/eucalyptus-playbook. Feedback and contributions are very welcome, please file issues against the project.
This playbook allows a user to deploy a single front-end cloud (i.e. all component on a single system) and as many NC's as they want.
