  • How to get DevSecOps right, the Ansible way Recorded: Apr 29 2021 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 Recorded: Apr 23 2021 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 Recorded: Apr 21 2021 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 Recorded: Apr 16 2021 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

    César Beltrán, Business Development Manager, SAP BDM MED, Red Hat David Liras, Head of Digital Platforms, CEPSA
    In this session, CEPSA will share their automation journey. From their first tactical approach, to use in their main project, SAP HANA migration, to an AWS space.

    CEPSA is a global, integrated company operating across the entire oil and gas value chain. They are present in more than 28 countries. The culture of innovation is one of their hallmarks. They use technology and research to generate value, be more competitive, optimize processes, and improve the efficiency and quality of their products--this is why they are involved in IT automation.

    David Liras, Head of Digital Platforms, will walk through the initial implementation of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform for security automation and then use it in a SAP HANA migration project. They will explain the benefits of automation that they extended to all IT projects, creating an automation culture across the organization.
  • Deploy infrastructure better and more quickly Recorded: Apr 14 2021 32 mins
    Pieter Avonts Sr. Automation Architect Sudhish PT Director
    We as a DevSecOps team are responsible to provide Platform as a Service capability to many engineering teams. Services offered by our team are used by internal engineering teams for their development, build and CI/CD platform.

    Below listed are the major challenges we had in addition to supporting different infrastructure verticals with multiple product stacks and varying skillset requirement.

    Maintain Product Security, Subscription and New Feature Compliance
    Frequent Product Upgrades & Migration – Seamless, Availability
    Various Deployment Requirements – Standalone, Clustered, DMZ
    Application Integration and Consistency
    Easy to Repeat and Scalable model
    Support more Services with less resources

    Our answer to this growing problem was ‘IaC - Infrastructure as Code’. Watch this session to learn about how we developed a solution with following characteristics.

    Easy to start with minimal learning curve
    Repeatable Model

    In this session we will also share overview of how we were able to increase our team by 300% after resource-bump in no time while keeping our main areas of focus unaffected which are supporting, maintaining, upgrading and monitoring our services.

  • Case study: Defending a defense company with Ansible Automation Recorded: Apr 9 2021 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.
