Ansible is an open source automation engine that automates complex IT tasks such as cloud provisioning, application deployment and a wide variety of system administration tasks. It is a one-to-many agentless mechanism where complex deployment tasks can be controlled and monitored from a central control machine.
Redfish is an open industry-standard specification and schema designed for modern and secure management of platform hardware. On Dell EMC PowerEdge servers the Redfish management APIs are available via the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC), which can be used by IT administrators to easily monitor and manage at scale their entire infrastructure using a wide array of clients on devices such as laptops, tablets and smart phones.
Together, Ansible and Redfish can be used by system administrators to fully automate at large scale server monitoring, provisioning and update tasks from one central location, significantly reducing complexity and helping improve the productivity and efficiency of IT administrators.
