The purpose of this presentation is to help define Infrastructure as Code using a Data Driven Automation approach.
This demonstration will delve into the development practices using Ansible Tower and Ansible automation to selectively invoke automation by passing in a common data structure which will allow infrastructure deployments across data centers, data center technologies, and cloud environments.
This session takes a humorous, yet informative look and why automation isn't just a passing fad, it's a necessity in today's enterprise. Covering both public and private sector, you will learn how automation in general and Ansible in particular can lead to not just job security, but also job satisfaction.
This talk will include:
- Discussions around automation in both the public and private sector
- Discussions of real use cases with measurable results
- Examples of real use cases
It's hard to find a homogeneous IT stack nowadays. You may have a Linux server farm, but an AD cluster providing identity. Or you have a cross-platform build environment that builds your software for multiple different targets.
Automation technologies, like Ansible, are great for removing mundane tasks from IT staff's to-do lists and freeing them up to do more. But often automation efforts throughout an organization are siloed and 'islands of automation' pop up. What organizations really need is not an automation tool, but rather an automation platform to help them collaboratively scale automation, manage with policy and governance and provide the structure to collaborate across teams bring the power of automation to the entire IT organization. With the launch of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, organizations can do just that.
- Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform - Engine, Tower, Networking, and more, all in one.
- A walk through the new Automation Analytics which gives enterprises the ability to view information about automation health, usage and performance across your enterprise.
- An explanation of Ansible Content Collections - the new method of building and consuming Ansible content and why this is important to you.
- A walk through of the new Automation Content Hub which is the place to discover, publish and manage your Ansible Collections

Adopting a hybrid cloud strategy is a journey, not a destination. When you consider using a public cloud environment for some or all of your applications, you’re faced with a number of choices and approaches. When considering a hybrid cloud environment, you often end up being overwhelmed and discover that vendors don’t use the same language when talking about them.
Detailed planning with Red Hat and Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help you successfully create, scale, and migrate innovative applications to an agile hybrid cloud environment as big as you need and available whenever and wherever you need it.
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- A series of questions you might consider when planning your hybrid cloud journey
- How the Red Hat and AWS partnership can simplify a potentially complicated journey.

A recent Vanson Bourne survey of 900 IT leaders showed that an organization's ability to invest in digital transformation is severely hindered because over 70% of their budget is spent on maintaining existing infrastructure. Adopting an open, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is one approach to freeing up budget, but there are some technical challenges.
In this webinar, we’ll explore:
- Why hyperconverged approaches should be considered for infrastructure consolidation
- The technical challenges of using HCI for consolidation
- Circumstances under which to to consider an open HCI
- Operations benefits of open HCI
- Two customer use cases using an open HCI for server consolidation

Public Cloud is the perfect target for automation, and particularly Ansible Automation. There are modules and specific guidelines for all the main public clouds, and documentation on how to bring the power of Ansible Automation to your cloud project.
The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is one of the main public cloud platforms underlying HSBC’s move to “Cloud Only” infrastructure. The automation of GCP can easily be performed using Ansible Automation, with 128 modules (at last count) available, as well as the standard roles, playbooks and capabilities you are used to. Ansible allows you to make use of exactly the same simple framework and language that you can use for the rest of the Enterprise IT stack.
This webinar, exclusively for HSBC, will cover the general ideas behind working with public cloud, then go into more detail on working with GCP. We will give you an understanding of how Ansible Automation works to automate the creation, modification and removal of GCP resources. We will explain some simple use cases for GCP that you can start using straight away.
Joining us on the webinar is the HSBC Central Ansible Tower Service team. They will talk about where Ansible Tower is already being used to automate key workflows in HSBC projects on GCP and some of the future plans.
Solve problems once. Scale automation with control and insight. Collaborate across teams. Manage policy enforcement and governance. Bring the power of automation to your whole organization.

In the world of containers and DevOps, Docker has become the most common standard to perform all the necessary operations around registries, images, and containers. With the introduction of the CRI-O project, we see a container engine that is a stable and security-focused platform for running Open Container Initiative (OCI) compatible runtimes instead of traditional Docker.
To fully visualize the vast landscape of container technology, a solid understanding of the tools and their uses is essential. For example, Buildah offers simple container creation with or without a Dockerfile. With the power of Ansible®, you can extend the power of tools like Buildah to deploy your application on OpenShift®.
In this session, we’ll cover:
How to manage non-Docker container images.
How to use Ansible Playbooks with Buildah and Skopeo to manage image and registry operations.
The advantages the CRI-O project can provide your organization.
