Red Hat, Inc., provider of open source solutions announced a step forward in enterprise-wide IT automation with the integration of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform and Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes.
Built to speed up cloud-native and traditional technology automation and convergence, this integration is designed to help accelerate application transformation for IT environments, break down workflow and silos for development between traditional servers and virtual machines, and cloud-native clusters, including Red Hat OpenShift.
Ansible Automation Platform and Red Hat OpenShift are both leaders in The Forrester Wave™ and are built on leading open source projects in Ansible and Kubernetes, respectively.
Ansible Automation Platform and Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management will operate hand-in-hand, allowing businesses to take advantage of the technologies already in use and optimize them for a cloud-based future.
The goal of the integration between Ansible Automation Platform and Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management is to solve these pain points in enterprise IT organizations by streamlining traditional and cloud-native technologies toolsets and handoffs.
As part of the integration between the two technologies, Red Hat takes advantage of OpenShift’s Kubernetes Operator foundation to further IT automation in hybrid cloud environments. Kubernetes Operators make it easier to run applications at-scale across OpenShift deployments, wherever they may exist.
With a Resource Operator for Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management, the technology can call on Ansible Automation Platform to execute tasks more efficiently outside of the Kubernetes cluster.
This integration is slated for technology preview in the coming weeks.
