|13:00 - 13:30||AUTOMATION FOR NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE
Very few resources can be provisioned without some form of network interaction and Ansible is fast becoming the de facto standard for network automation. What started as a nice idea due to Ansible's agentless architecture has now become a full community including nearly all of the major network hardware suppliers. Automation of Network devices, physical and virtual, requires the same skillsets as that of servers. If you work with networks, or with network teams, Ansible can bring automation to the network domain and allow you to evolve your network operations beyond manual tasks.
|13:30 - 14:00||ANSIBLE TOWER SECURITY AUTOMATION
In IT, Security is everyones responsibility. Automation enables all engineers or developers to incorporate security best practice into their workflow. Ansible makes it simple for different teams from different domains to collaborate so that anyone can contribute to the combined capability of IT. Automating with Ansible lets you proactively and collaboratively tackle operational security tasks. Let us show you how the security "overhead" can become part of everyday best practice.
