Red Hat announced the latest version of Ansible Automation Platform with new Red Hat Certified Ansible Content Collections, automation services catalog, and private Automation Hub. Red Hat’s new services and offerings connect business managers with automation leaders to better align automation strategies. The company also introduced an integration between Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management and Ansible Automation Platform. The integration bridges the divide between cloud-native, container-based solutions with traditional IT environments.
More than 60 Ansible Content Collections available
The newest version of Ansible Automation Platform includes newly certified Ansible Content Collections for Red Hat OpenShift, Kubernetes Core, and VMware vSphere REST API. With the new Collections addition, currently, there are over 60 Ansible Content Collections available from Red Hat and its partners in Automation Hub. Automation for various container management systems is enabled by these Certified Content Collections. Joe Fitzgerald, Vice President, Management, Red Hat, said,
“Ansible has evolved into a defacto standard for automation and became one of the top 10 open source projects in the world, according to a most recent study. Red Hat has built an automation platform for enterprises to more easily access, consume, and share Ansible content to significantly reduce the time-to-automation. As customers continue down the path of digital transformation, these pre-integrated resources can address common use cases while advancing the management and innovation of traditional and cloud-native infrastructure.”
