  • The impact of open source automation on innovation May 27 2021 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Glenn O'Donnell VP, Research Director, Forrester.
    Automation is at the core of firms’ technology strategies across all verticals and industries; effective businesses need technology that adapts and scales quickly, reliably, and economically. Getting started with simple, tactical automation software to begin automating processes is easy, but using it at scale and working on higher value automation that spans teams, geographies, and across management area presents challenges. What's more, leadership teams and implementers often don't see eye to eye, causing struggles from prioritization through implementation. Join us and guest speaker Glenn O'Donnell from Forrester to explore how leadership teams and implementers are misaligned, how to improve this alignment, and what benefits may be achieved by doing so.

  • How to get DevSecOps right, the Ansible way Apr 29 2021 6:00 pm UTC 28 mins
    Massimo Ferrari Consulting Product Manager - Ansible Content
    Security is more critical than ever. But developers and others in the IT organization often report that security policies hold them back. One response to this challenge is to move security more "to the left," modernizing its practices and introducing it as early as possible in the development and deployment process. That means bringing DevOps and security together—with the chance to generate even more business value. In this session, we’ll show how automation is one of the key building blocks of DevSecOps and how the Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform can help you automating all its pillars.
  • Free their minds: Driving culture change and workforce transformation Apr 23 2021 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Christopher Saunders Senior Solutions Architect
    Organizations are demanding more and more productivity from our employees. Tools like Ansible are ideal for streamlining service delivery and unburdening our teams. With so many advantages, why are organizations still struggling with Ansible adoption? Too often we expect the technology to speak for itself. We believe that once teams see tech in action, they’ll line up to use it. Tech alone is not enough. Our strategy focuses on understanding organizational barriers and perceived limitations before technical solutions. In this session, we’ll share how we’re approaching the challenge of culture change and workforce transformation at Sandia.
  • Deploying an automation strategy with Ansible Automation Platform Apr 21 2021 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Marc Petrivelli, Managing Architect, Red Hat
    Many large-scale enterprises have begun to adopt the Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. In some cases, the usage is ad-hoc at the lab level. In others, Ansible automation has been institutionalized across the whole IT ecosystem. As enterprises try to make the jump from ad-hoc to widespread usage of Ansible automation, they often stumble and don’t fully achieve their automation goals.

    In this session, we investigate some of the most common reasons for failed adoption and how you can mitigate the risk of failure. Areas covered will be centered around the 3 pillars that affect your IT evolution: culture, process, and technology. We’ll focus on addressing how Ansible Automation Platform can help overcome institutional challenges.
  • Fast vs. easy: Operators by the numbers Apr 16 2021 6:00 pm UTC 24 mins
    Timothy Appnel, Fabian von Feilitzsch, James Cammarata, Jeff Geerling
    The Operator SDK supports 3 ways of implementing your app's operational knowledge: using Go, Helm, or Ansible. A compiled language like Go is usually faster than an interpreted language like Ansible and Python. But how much does it matter when implementing an Operator? How much speed is sacrificed for faster iterations and easier maintenance?

    We tried to answer these questions by benchmarking Operators written with the three Operator SDK types to manage the life cycle of a large number of application custom resources on a cluster. We then looked at ways to optimize execution speed of Ansible-enabled Operators to close the speed gaps with the other types of Operators.

    In this session, we’ll present our findings, lessons learned, and ways to optimize execution speed with development efficiency. You’ll see how to evaluate these tradeoffs for their own clusters.

    This session is presented by:
    Timothy Appnel Senior Product Manager, Ansible
    Fabian von Feilitzsch Senior Software Engineer, OpenShift
    James Cammarata Software Engineering Manager

  • Case study: Defending a defense company with Ansible Automation Apr 9 2021 6:00 pm UTC 26 mins
    Jeff Vealey Federal Engineer, CyberArk
    As cyber attackers continue to focus more and more on government agencies and their partners, the stakes keep increasing. Whether a rogue attacker or a nation state, these organizations hold both sensitive data and the keys to critical infrastructure. Defending the global networks that keep these organizations running is critical and complex. In this session, we’ll provide insights into how a leading defense contractor uses automation to ensure the secure configuration and maintenance of their network’s switches and routers. With thousands of devices, the challenge was daunting, but with the credentials for the network devices already being managed and secured through a strong privileged access management program, we’ll discuss how the Ansible team was able to rapidly develop playbooks to use these credentials to automate the configuration process, and rapidly rotate device passwords based on policy or an incident. This approach not only helped to secure the network and the data passing through it, but also to more easily meet audit and compliance requirements--a win/win. Throughout this session, we’ll discuss all the challenges facing this organization, how using a combination of privileged access management and Red Hat Ansible Tower provided significant business benefits, and tips and tricks on how other organizations can do the same.

  • Building Kubernete Operators using Ansible Mar 30 2021 6:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Jason Dobies, Developer Advocate
    Operators simplify the deployment and management of complex, stateful applications on Kubernetes. One option for writing them is to have knowledge of the language Go and expertise with the internals of Kubernetes. But, there's an alternative to that with a significantly lower barrier to entry. The Operator SDK, one component of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Operator Framework, natively supports building Operators that can run Ansible Playbooks, making it easier for Operator development and integrating seamlessly with existing Ansible workflows and tooling.

  • End-to-end automation of SAP HANA Recorded: Mar 4 2021 47 mins
    Jakub Veverka, Solution Architect, Red Hat
    Maintaining enterprise applications such as SAP often involves several diverse teams, and simplicity grows more important the more people it impacts. Such applications require configuration of many components, such as infrastructure, operating system, actual application, and any additional components. Each component is typically managed by a different team and in this type of setup the automation is often adopted in pockets, or isolated areas.
