Automate Application Configuration and Policy Deployment with Ansible

Presented by

John McDonough, Developer Advocate, Cisco DevNet

About this talk

Applications need the network to communicate, operate, integrate, etc. All of the things that an Application might do on the network, in the network, and with other networks requires configuration and policy. Automating the management of configurations and policy for applications in all the required places through APIs can be a daunting task. The APIs can vary, for example, methodologies to implement the APIs, authentication processes, transport protocol utilization, and more. This session shows the use of Ansible and its uniform approach to managing application configuration and policy deployment. Attendees will learn where to retrieve the Ansible Playbooks and supporting files, how the Ansible environment is structured, and the Ansible modules utilized. This session will include a demo of the Automate Application Configuration and Policy Deployment with Ansible use case found of DevNet Automation Exchange.
