The agent-less nature and simplicity are without any doubt the two key features that determined the incredible popularity of Ansible as a configuration management tool.
However, exactly when many DevOps teams started working actively on the migration from existing configuration management tools to Ansible, another open-source tool started becoming very popular: Kubernetes.
The promise of Kubernetes of being able to implement autonomous and self-healing infrastructures - both in the cloud and on-premise - led some teams to question their Ansible strategy.
How is Kubernetes impacting existing efforts on the automation and consolidation of operations with Ansible?
How can Kubernetes be used effectively in existing infrastructures already fully managed via Ansible?
Can Kubernetes and Ansible co-exist?
What's the most effective way of transitioning from Ansible to Kubernetes? Will it work?
In this talk we will try to answer these and other questions on what Kubernetes means for Ansible users.
