Dell EMC OpenManageTM Ansible Modules allows Data Center and IT administrators to use RedHat Ansible to automate and orchestrate the provisioning, configuration, deployment, and update of PowerEdge Servers by leveraging the out-of-band (agentless) management automation capabilities in-built into the iDRAC (Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller).
Ansible by RedHat is one of the most popular DevOps tools that can configure systems, deploy software, and orchestrate more advanced IT tasks such as continuous deployments or zero downtime rolling updates.
With OpenManage Ansible Modules, Data Center and IT administrators will be able to rapidly deploy their infrastructure, change server configurations and will be able to manage and maintain the desired-state configurations for PowerEdge Servers by running Ansible playbooks.
