Ansible

Ansible is a great orchestrator. One-time shot operations are something that Ansible does very well. Its also pretty easy to understand in that there are no dependencies other than ssh and a python json serializer. However if someone wants to enforce something in a declarative fashion, Puppet/Chef/CFEngine are better than Ansible at this task.

Pros

Ansible

  • Imperative orchestration works well. There is no resource ordination issues like there can be with Puppet or Chef.
  • It is easy to get started and start iterating on plays, books, roles.
  • The docker and rax resources are very robust and compelling. I hope these continue to develop and flourish.

Cons

Ansible

  • Ansible currently doesn't have a way to keep a node in a current state like what puppet or DSC can do.
  • Ansible uses SSH which sometimes is not a good security practice.
  • You have to be good to set up system totally with secure SSH keys, Sudo, etc.

Based on 5 answers
Ansible is very friendly to start with. With just a few configurations, you have full management to your servers. You can configure it and implement it in seconds. You can also set up a cron job to make sure it gets implemented. It suits our need perfectly. Support can be a bit hard.

Alternatives Considered

Ansible

I haven't used Puppet personally, but I believe Ansible is a robust solution which can serve many purposes. Puppet I'm sure is customizable in similar ways, I just don't have the experience to speak intelligently on the subject.

We choose Atrium Orchestrator since we are using other BMC products in our environment & integration to those products is simple
