Ansible Solving Challanges of Industries | Task 11.2 | ARTH

What is Ansible

In this world of technology everything need to be automatic & without much human efforts. We all want our work to be done in smart way & with less effort. Like imagine in this world of software & apps you waiting in a line to book your ticket… painful is’t it. So how can one imagine to imagine to write lots of programs/commands every time to do some task.

Imperative & declarative languages

We can achieve automation using two types of language:- one is Imperative language & second is Declarative language. In Imperative language we have to specify What & How & in Declarative language we have to specify only What. Ansible is also a Declarative language & it is so intelligent that it automatically figure out achieve your task.

Ansible is the best tool available in the industry to achieve Automation

There are many other Automation tools available, including more mature ones like Puppet and Chef, so what is the reason I write in above statement that Ansible is best tool for automation? Not one of the best but The Best.
