The Cloudcast - #95 - Ansible - Next Generation DevOps Tools



Links

Topic 1 – Michael, you’ve got a very interesting background.  First off, you’re a Raleigh person, not a Silicon Valley guy.  You “grew up” at Red Hat and prior to Ansible you created Cobbler and even have some patents to your name in this space. Give everyone a little background.


Topic 2 - For those that aren’t familiar with Cobbler, what is it and why did you invent it?


Topic 3 – Let’s move on to Ansible, I attended your session today (my impressions).  What is Ansible and why AnsibleWorks?  Probably the first question you get, why Ansible and not Puppet/Chef?  Seems to be Configuration Management, App Delivery & CI (Continuous Integration or Delivery) all in one? Infrastructure as code - rPath and Bronto?  What is AnsibleWorks AWX?


Topic 4 – You were just on FLOSS Weekly and you are speaking here at OSCON, The product is under a GPL license.  does that differentiate you in the market?


Topic 5 - Technical Details - No Agent, talks SSH and can be written in anything that returns JSON?
