Automating Simple Network Operations With Ansible

Ansible® is an automation and configuration management technology used to provision, deploy, and manage compute infrastructure across cloud, virtual, and physical environments. Specifically, it can be used by network administrators to centrally manage the switches, routers, and other devices in an organization's network infrastructure. This webinar, part of a series conducted by the Red Hat® Training and Certification team, will provide a demonstration of how to deploy and manage network devices using Ansible Playbooks.

In this webinar, our expert will cover:

•Writing effective playbooks for network automation.
•Automating specific network administration use cases.
•Using Ansible Playbooks to target devices from various hardware vendors, including Cisco, Juniper, and Arista.
•Red Hat Training’s Ansible curriculum.

  • Automating security and compliance for hybrid cloud environments Recorded: Oct 22 2019 46 mins
    Lucy Kerner Security Global Technical Evangelist and Strategist, Red Hat
    Maintaining visibility, control, and security, and ensuring governance and compliance remains paramount. But it becomes more difficult and time consuming in a hybrid infrastructure consisting of physical, virtual, cloud, and container environments. Also, it's becoming more and more challenging for security teams to examine and respond to the growing number of security alerts coming in from the increasing number of security tools in their security operations center.

  • Adventures with Red Hat Ansible: Lessons learned from real-world deployments Recorded: Sep 23 2019 56 mins
    John Wadleigh, Architect, Red Hat
    In the past, quarterly production deployments took place overnight with a team of people on call to get a release working. Deployments were expensive, complex, inconsistent, and frustrating on so many levels.

    Since then, IT teams have implemented automation solutions such as Red HatⓇ AnsibleⓇ Automation to help make deployments easier, faster, and more consistent. Ansible Automation can take some time to master, but learning the tool is seldom a problem for most organizations.
    There are, however, other challenges organizations might encounter when implementing an automation solution. For example, technical, process, and behavioral challenges can impact their ability to fully benefit from an automation solution.

    In this session, we will offer some best practices to cut through these challenges and turn your project into a success, including:

    •The importance of standards.
    •Why naming matters.
    •Failing early, failing fast, and becoming a learning organization
  • Manage Thousands of Network Devices at One Time Recorded: Sep 20 2019 46 mins
    Piyush Patel, Senior Architect, Network Automation Practice, Red Hat and Sean Sackowitz, Consultant, Red Hat
    Network management has remained largely the same for decades. Many network operations teams use a manual approach to network configuration and updates. However, this method is too slow and error prone to keep up with the needs of modern network infrastructures.

    Red Hat® Ansible® Automation allows network management across virtually any device platform via a secure shell (SSH) or an application programming interface (API). With Ansible Automation, you can scale with a global network infrastructure, giving you the ability to manage nearly all network devices at one time.

    Join this webinar to:

    •Learn challenges that you may face when starting network automation.
    •Develop a network automation architecture and strategic framework.
    •Hear about one customer's successful adoption of global network automation.

  • How free software can be more expensive than paid alternatives Recorded: Sep 18 2019 57 mins
    Al Gillen, Group Vice President, Software Development and Open Source, IDC
    Learn how paid subscriptions for open source software increase operational efficiency and reduce costs

    It's a common, unfortunate myth that community-supported, free, open source software is a better value, lower cost solution for running highly available, reliable, and critical workloads in data centers and cloud deployments. In the context of the larger investment, though, the reality is that the expense of commercially supported open source software is an investment that produces more secure platforms that deliver better availability, greater agility, and lower long-term operational costs.

    Join Al Gillen, IDC Vice President, as he reviews IDC research about the use of Red Hat® commercially supported, enterprise products and their cost and business benefits to customers.
