Likelihood to Recommend

Ansible

I would 100% recommend Ansible over Chef or other config management systems. Ansible is easy to get started with, has powerful modules, the community provided playbooks, and requires no client package. Great for large-scale deployments and single node apps alike.

Cons

  • Should have a better error handling mechanism with more precise error logic and interaction with the user
  • It would be great if ansible had a dynamic inventory handling mechanism by default

  • It would easier for users if there are more report templates.
  • The dashboard can be improved as well.
  • Otherwise, I am pretty happy with the tools.

Alternatives Considered

All three of these competitors are agent based. I did not want an additional service that needed to run absolutely everywhere. I also did not want to maintain a load balanced cluster of master servers that grows in resource requirements as your infrastructure scales.

Return on Investment

  • The time savings of not having to manually provision servers has been huge!
  • Keeping multiple servers in complete parity with one another has been incredibly helpful in reducing the number of single-machine configuration bugs present during development.
