Get started with automating your Dev work flows with NetApp and Ansible. This workshop will start with a basic introduction to Ansible Automation and how it works. From install all the way through conditional playbooks, along with how to use the NetApp ONTAP modules.

Over the course of the workshop, the trainer will assist with learning ad-hoc commands and inventories, and lead into understanding modules, tasks and playbooks. Live demos and examples will be used to ensure you gain the most valuable experience as possible.

The second portion of the workshop will focus on Ansible Tower to see how some of its features work. With Tower, you can centralize and control your IT infrastructure with visual dashboard, role-based access control, job scheduling, integrate notifications and graphical inventory management. Easily embed Ansible Tower into existing tools and processes with REST API and CLI.
