Simplifying Day Two Operations with Ansible (A Hands-on Lab)

Managing an application on OpenStack presents a host of challenges for the system administrator, and finding ways to reduce complexity and produce consistency are key ingredients to achieving success. With the use of Ansible, an agentless IT automation technology, a system administrator can create Ansible Playbooks that provide the needed consistency and reduced complexity.

This lab will provide system administrators with a real-world scenario of backing up and restoring a web application with a backend database. Administrators can expect to be guided with a step-by-step methodology to implement these Ansible Playbooks to achieve consistency and reproducibility of the day-two operations of backing up and restoring a simple application with a backend database on OpenStack.

Lab prerequisites:

  • A laptop with an SSH client and a modern web browser.
  • Understanding of Ansible fundamentals would be a plus.

What can I expect to learn?

This lab is best suited for system and OpenStack administrators wanting to learn

a methodology that they can apply for everyday day two operations.
