What is "Better together: Ansible and OpenShift – a workshop powered by Red Hat Services"?

Many organizations are using containers as an integral part of their DevOps workflows because of their flexibility and portability. Ideally, containers should be as simple as possible, but as the complexity of a container grows, manual, antiquated methods won't get the job done. In order to succeed in today's market, you need a solution that provides a clear path from existing technologies and methodologies to a containerized world–all while managing and automating existing applications where they run best.

Ansible by Red Hat is a simple, yet powerful, IT automation engine used to drive complexity out of an organization's environment. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform offers full control over enterprise Kubernetes environments, giving teams freedom to build and run applications anywhere. By harnessing the capabilities of these two products together, your team can accelerate DevOps initiatives and drive innovation back into your business.

Join our technical experts from Red Hat Services on December 10th for a one-day, hands-on workshop. You'll walk away with a comprehensive overview of how Ansible and OpenShift work better together, and equipped with the skills to take back to your company and implement right away.
