Red Hat Ansible Network Automation: Past, present, future

Red Hat Ansible Network Automation started with just a few networking platforms and has expanded to over 50 platforms and 700 modules. Customers are not only automating their routers and switches from a variety of vendors like Cisco, Arista, and Juniper, but they're also automating firewalls, wireless controllers, and load balancers.

In this session, we'll provide a roadmap that includes new Ansible roles in Red Hat Ansible Network Automation that solve common operational tasks for network administrators.

These network roles provide a curated and agnostic approach to automating a variety of networking vendors. We'll also highlight the seamless integration with Red Hat Ansible Tower and how easy it is to get started with networking content.

  • Ansible Feature Spotlight: Reboot Plugin Jul 31 2019 7:00 pm UTC 31 mins
    Sam Doran, Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat
    Rebooting systems is a task that is commonly automated using Ansible. Since Ansible 2.1, the win_reboot plugin made it easy to reboot Windows systems, but rebooting Linux and Unix was not as straight forward. With Ansible 2.7, the reboot plugin makes rebooting Linux and Unix hosts very simple.In this webinar you will learn how the reboot and win_reboot plugins work as well as some advanced techniques to reboot both Windows and Linux/Unix systems in a single task.

  • Mgmt of remote & mobile systems with Red Hat Satellite 6 & Red Hat Ansible Tower Jul 30 2019 3:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    Sascha Berger, System Engineer, SBB AG; Olivier Hugi, Senior Network Engineer, SBB AG; Gianfranco Sigrisi, Senior Infrastruct
    Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), Switzerland’s largest public transport provider, transports 1.3 million passengers daily. It committed to modernizing and securing the way IT infrastructure is managed on rolling stock.

    An initial proof of concept using Foreman proved to be a promising and scalable solution to manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Using Red Hat Satellite, SBB runs 1,200 hosts on trains throughout the country, connected over a 4G mobile network.

    The additional features of Red Hat Satellite facilitate the management of host life cycles and content views. The high-latency connection led to the challenge of random timeouts that caused provisioning failure.

    Using Red Hat Consulting, SBB introduced Red Hat Ansible Tower to master daily configuration management for the fleet’s comfort systems. The combination of Satellite and Ansible Tower provides scalable infrastructure, enabling full automation of the provisioning process of a bare metal host running on a train.

    Ansible Tower has also proven to be a flexible configuration and software management solution for embedded devices that do not have any viable support for large-scale system operations. To prove the feasibility, SBB picked an industrial edge router running a vendor specific Linux distribution.

    This deployment reduced manual effort, cut costs by 60%, and reduced the total deployment time per train from 1 day to approximately 1 hour.

    In this presentation from Red Hat Summit, you will see how the SBB team:

    • Dealt with high-latency network problems on mobile systems using Red Hat
    products and services

    • Collaborated with Red Hat to introduce new Satellite features

    • Advanced their digital transformation with Red Hat
  • Shifting the Data Center: Transition Red Hat IT to Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Jul 26 2019 5:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    Brian Atkisson, Principal Architect, Red Hat, Matthew Carpenter, Principal Systems Administrator, Red Hat
    Red Hat IT, like most Red Hat customers, is on an open hybrid journey to migrate workloads from traditional platforms to a run-anywhere, container-based model. However, as part of this project, we are rethinking what it means to be a datacenter and how applications function across multiple physical sites.

    In support of this vision, our datacenters are being rebuilt from the ground-up to run on Red Hat OpenStack Platform. OpenStack Platform clusters operate at each datacenter with applications front-ended by global traffic management solutions. These clusters, using Red Hat Ceph Storage and Red Hat Gluster Storage, provide a reliable foundation upon which to layer Red Hat OpenShift and a complete application stack. Two Red Hat-operated and -built datacenters are combined with a third leg, hosted within AWS, to achieve this active-active(-active) model.

    In this session recorded from Red Hat Summit, Brian Atkisson and Matthew Carpenter, Red Hat, Inc, focus on the Red Hat OpenStack Platform infrastructure and configuration used to achieve this architecture, the challenges we faced, and the integration points with Red Hat OpenShift.

    This recorded Red Hat Summit session delivers an understanding of how and why OpenStack Platform was deployed this way and the components used as back-end infrastructure for both applications and Red Hat OpenShift. Note: A basic understanding of Linux, virtualization, and container concepts is assumed.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 Container Tools Jul 24 2019 2:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    Scott McCarty, Principal Product Manager, Red Hat and Dan Walsh, Senior Distinguished Engineer, Red Hat
    When building and managing container-based applications, it's important to consider every element of the proposed deployment, from selecting a base image on which to build, to understanding the security, scalability, and ease of use of the deployment platform.

    With the introduction of the Red Hat container tools suite, comprising podman, buildah and skopeo and the availability of base images and container runtimes based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, developers and users alike have a comprehensive set of tools at their disposal. In this webinar, we'll demonstrate how to replace Docker with podman and demonstrate podman.
