This product has huge capacity to run millions of jobs per month, can serve to enterprise level of business. If client is looking for platform base solution which can be deployed on-prem or cloud base technologies then this solution works well. It has very good licensing mechanism which is based on number of agents, and there is no limitation of number of jobs run. So client has not to worry on limitation of jobs and can scale of the automation in the environment. This reduced the total cost of ownership of product. Self service automation feature can reduce the client automation cost significantly. it has good batch job coverages from Mainframe to Microservices.

Rundeck is a really good solution to formalize , standardize and automate your infrastructure operational run book. It can be also used in combination with your monitoring solution to auto heal your services. As for example when you get a specific alert, instead of triggering your notification channel to first trigger the Rundeck job to try and fix the issues (service restart etc..) and only then if the problem still persist to escalate and notify through an alert. It is also super handy to run all tasks from a central location and making sure there is no other person running the same job on the same servers at the same time, been able to see statistic about how fast or successful a job runs is also a big plus.

  • The advantage is that it is extremely easy to lead and document because tasks can be managed in one place.
  • As a consequence, there will be fewer crashes
  • If you have trouble using crontab frequently, you should definitely use it.

Cons

Broadcom

  • Support. Many companies, at least in Europe, now get support from resellers.
  • The user interface is actually not well suited for non-technical users.

  • Sudo privileges, this can be attained but it's not obvious when trying to build a job that needs to sudo up.
  • Have a human time schedule instead of a linux cron schedule timer when creating jobs
  • When calling a job from the API, the ability to pass back a result parameter that a job outputs, i.e., a job creates a job ticket reference and returns the reference, the API call will just return if the job fired correctly and not the ticket reference. Getting the ticket reference needs some engineering to attain; for example, you may need to write it to a file, then another job read that file to find out what it is.
  • It would be very nice to just be able to fire off the job on the API. The API sits and waits for the return and gets back any outputted data in the one call. I know it's an API, but it would be nice to have the option to sit and wait for the result.

      Alternatives Considered

      Broadcom

      1. Cost was the major factor without compromising the automation service which this product delivered. Other products are expensive and deliver the same outcome. 2. Limitation of job run, Broadcom Automic Automation allows to run unlimited jobs and helps to increase automation capability. 3. Number of automation packs available with no extra license cost. 4. Depth of coverage of technologies for batch job automation. 5. Required less number of hardware to achieve high availability.

      Ansible Tower (or AWX) is very poor in comparison to Rundeck and only runs well Ansible talks versus Rundeck can support all kind of scripts and tools. Rundeck UI is much more intuitive and robust

      • Business logic can now run on time.
      • In Cron, error management and error reporting skills are required, but the introduction of Rundeck has eliminated personality.
      • It is a centrally managed job management system.
