Red Hat recently announced its newest step in the hybrid cloud area: integrating Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform and Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes.
This step is done Red Hat to accelerate automation and accelerate integration between cloud-native and traditional infrastructure.
While accelerating digitization, companies often have difficulty modernizing legacy applications. And the integration will bring cloud-native features to legacy applications. When workflows at the application level or legacy IT infrastructure are required, Advanced Cluster Management will act as a control panel across the cluster Red Hat OpenShift to activate capabilities Ansible Automation Platform, such as system updates, load balancing, and server resource allocation.
The result is a single workflow of managing complex hybrid cloud environments without forcing companies to choose between their current IT needs and the IT needs they will need in the future.
This integration is expected to drive application modernization in the IT environment, simplify workflows, and eliminate the separation (silos) that occurs between traditional servers and virtual machines and cloud-native clusters, including Red Hat OpenShift.
With this integration, customers will be able to access Red Hat Kubernetes Operators who will assist customers in managing applications and components. Red Hat claiming this integration will simplify administration because Ansible Automation Platform it will be more efficient to execute jobs outside the cluster Kubernetes.
“By integrating Red Hat OpenShift and Ansible Automation Platform, companies can utilize Ansible in infrastructure management and application implementation. We believe Ansible has become the de facto standard in automation, andRed Hat has a lot of Ansible automation ready to use, spanning multiple domains, and is well curated, certified, and supported, “explained Joe Fitzgerald, Vice President, Management, Red Hat.
Meanwhile, Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President, Cloud Management, IDC said, “Interest in cross-cloud management and consistent visibility is on the rise recently, as companies move more of their workloads to hybrid and multicloud infrastructure platforms. , including VMs and container-based environments The majority of leaders in cloud infrastructure management companies say it is imperative today to have management tools and capabilities covering a wide variety of cloud environments, including public, private, hosted and edge locations. The added automation functionality helps expand the reach of hybrid management. effective cloud. ”
Ansible Automation Platform and Red Hat OpenShift is a leader in The Forrester Wave ™ and is used in a number of open source projects Ansible and Kubernetes.
Red Hat promises a preview of this integration is available soon in the next few weeks.
