Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.

Ansible

Ansible did a great job helping us patch simple security vulnerabilities on many servers. The code for the fix were no more than about 100 lines. We patched each vulnerability in about 10 minutes. We patched both the HeartBleed/OpenSSH along with the Shellshock Bash vulnerability on 200+ servers in a few days.

Pros

  • Creation of streams & workspaces are easy.
  • Easy integration with other bug tracking or tasking tools like JIRA.
  • File comparison and history is possible.
  • Project creation and setup is easy.

  • Unlike Puppet or Chef, Ansible doesn’t use an agent on the remote host. Instead it uses SSH which is to be installed on all the systems we want to manage.
  • Ansible is written in Python, which we install on all remote host. This means that we don’t have to setup a client server environment before using Ansible.
  • Ansible can work alongside our other DevOp tool, Chef. This allows us to reach out to existing Chef teams in order to try and organize their work all under the same DevOps umbrella.

Cons

  • Very hard or confusing process when compared to other version control tools like TFS /GIT etc.
  • More features would be definitely helpful. The UI seems a little outdated when compared to many modern tools
  • Very slow tool.

  • Unlike Chef, Ansible employes a Push methodology rather than Pull. We found that this doesn't scale well for us, thus we had to consider using Ansible Tower in order to scale.
  • Ansible's free training and tutorials do no provide as much depth and ease for first time users trying it out for the first time.
  • From the limited experience we have had with Ansible Tower, the UI is not very user friendly. There's a lot of bells and whistles that can prove o be overwhelming at times.

I've said this before, but Ansible is a great declarative orchestrator. One thing that is both good and bad about it is that it has no store about the state of the gear it manages. With dynamic inventory, I either have to realize facts for my entire fleet or rely on prior runs writing metadata to my cloud instances and subsequent runs referencing said information from the cloud API. Contrast this to Chef which has a solr instance which lets me store information about node objects which is updated on successful converges. That store is always available for recipe use and other business processes.

Return on Investment

  • Stable and safe promotions which leads to increased employee efficiency

  • Ansible makes it easier to ship code as the orchestrator of the release.
  • Ansible enables clear blue-green release processes.
  • Ansible moves fast and breaks the runtime with regressions. We rightly pin dependencies hard to insulate ourselves from unintentional breaking changes.
