Automating Hybrid Clouds with Event-Driven Ansible
Ricardo Carrillo Cruz

The hybrid cloud has emerged as a dominant architecture in modern IT, blending on-premises infrastructure with public and private cloud services to create a versatile, scalable, and efficient environment for enterprises. However, managing and orchestrating resources across these diverse environments presents a complex challenge, particularly when it comes to maintaining consistency, ensuring security, and automating routine operations.

Ansible, known for its simplicity and ease of use in automation, plays a pivotal role in addressing these challenges. Its latest advancement, Event-Driven Ansible, opens new avenues for managing hybrid cloud environments more effectively. This innovative approach allows for real-time, responsive automation based on events occurring across the hybrid cloud infrastructure.

In this session, we will delve into the practical applications of Event-Driven Ansible in a hybrid cloud setting. We will explore how it can dynamically respond to events from various cloud services and on-premises resources, thereby streamlining operations in areas such as application deployment, security, disaster recovery and cost optimization.
