Ansible for OpenStack Design Session

Ansible is an IT automation tool. It can configure systems, deploy software, and orchestrate more advanced IT tasks such as continuous deployments or zero downtime rolling updates.

Ansible’s goals are foremost those of simplicity and maximum ease of use. It also has a strong focus on security and reliability, featuring a minimum of moving parts, usage of OpenSSH for transport (with an accelerated socket mode and pull modes as alternatives), and a language that is designed around auditability by humans – even those not familiar with the program.

Ansible is a popular tool for deploying and managing OpenStack, as well as for deploying and managing workloads run on OpenStack.

There are three areas of interest in the intersection of ansible and OpenStack.

- deploying OpenStack with ansible
- OpenStack support in ansible/managing workloads on OpenStack with ansible
- use of ansible in OpenStack itself

All three are worthy topics, but the second two are potentially more useful to discuss in person. Namely, what, if anything, does the OpenStack community want to do in terms of ensuring a good enduser experience for ansible users on OpenStack, and where, if anywhere, can ansible be useful inside of OpenStack.
