Ansible has always operated as we expected it to. It does require digging into the configuration documentation at times, especially when using some of the modules, but that's just a small learning curve. Once it's set up it runs great. We've not had any issues.

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.

Great in almost every way compared to any other configuration management software. The only thing I wish for is python3 support. Other than that, YAML is much improved compared to the Ruby of Chef. The agentless nature is incredibly convenient for managing systems quickly, and if a member of your term has no terminal experience whatsoever they can still use the UI.

Out of the box, Ansible can be slow over a bad connection, as it's establishing an SSH connection to the target server for each little task. There are some adjustments you can make to the defaults that greatly improve performance. And if you run Ansible on the same network as the target (i.e. by using a jump box or Jenkins server), then it can be crazy fast. I'd give it a 10 for speed except that it does require these adjustments first.

Ansible is all command line unless you pay for Tower, so it is very quick because the GUI isn't there. Even with Tower, it is pretty quick and response time is not an issue. No impact on many other systems unless your playbooks are extremely complicated. It's all based on what and how you write your playbooks.
