What is Ansible?

Ansible is a systems automation and configuration management tool. It is currently the simplest, easiest to learn, and fastest to use for these tasks.

To see how Ansible compares to other similar tools like Puppet and Chef, see my book comparing these tools: Taste Test: Puppet, Chef, SaltStack, Ansible

Q: Wait, didn't this used to be "Ansible Weekly" and "Briefs on Ansible"?

A: You are correct!

Previously, the logos for the newsletter were: Ansible Weekly: Borg Cow says: You will be assimooolated.

And then: Briefs on Ansible

Q: What's with the cow?

A: Ansible has a well known love for the cowsay utility. Cowsay also has a borg" mode for the cow, so this joke is inevitable ;-)

Here's the borg cow from the command-line:

> cowsay -b "You will be assiMOOOlated"
< You will be assiMOOOlated >
