Automation is the only way operations teams will keep pace with growing business expectations to deliver faster, increase availability and do so efficiently without adding more resources. OpenStack offers the infrastructure blueprints, API endpoints and Heat for delivering one-click infrastructure-as-a-service. Ansible provides an agentless platform for configuring, deploying and automating complex application software stacks in the cloud once the infrastructure is provisioned. Together OpenStack Heat and Ansible provide end-to-end solutions for deploying even the most complex application stacks, effortlessly.
