Managing OpenStack with Ansible, a hands-on workshop.

As OpenStack popularity and complexity continue to rise and new feature sets are introduced regularly, findings ways to simplify and produce consistent results is always at the forefront of any system administrator’s mind. With the use of Ansible, an agentless IT automation technology, a system administrator can do just that.

The goal of this lab is to provide a brief introduction to Ansible, the usability of Ansible playbooks, and then show how to leverage key Ansible modules to better manage and simplify OpenStack environments. These management playbooks will consist of typical administrative tasks such as:

  • Managing Networks
  • Managing Instances
  • Managing Resources

This lab is best suited for system and OpenStack administrators looking for ways to automate their day-to-day OpenStack administrative tasks

Lab Requirements:

- A laptop with an SSH client and a modern web browser.
