Using Ansible AWX for IaC and Cloud Provider Automation

  • June 22, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
* Ansible is Awsome, you need to create a non-AWX sandbox environment with simple files to test your routines before you push them to AWX repo
* You can install with a kubernetes operator, each repo you run is using a specialised image
* Just commit to your repo, AWX will fetch before execution
* centralized environment for everything
* debugging is done perfectly. you can see all the variables and outputs
* you can create automated tasks, which will be triggered by scheduler
* with API webhooks, you can create interactive automations
* Secrets management is perfect.
* Ansible has integrations with almost anything. I think it is the nr1 Automation tool on the market, and AWX adds the observability on top
What do you dislike?
Ansible AWX installation is not that easy. I would highly recommend to use Kubernetes and Operator Deployment. Just check the image link for the quay image.
Takes some time to understand the UI, not super intuitive.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We aimed to create a PaaS platform that would run on any cloud provider. AWX Tower is in the middle of our operations. We automated all the tasks and now the tasks are written by our Internal engine and run by AWX. With AWX we can trigger and debug any kind of operation that we perform on our Customer machines.

A Great open-source GUI Ansible automation tool !

What do you like best?
- Ansible AWX has full enterprise features and functionality of Tower
- There is no limitation of 10 nodes
- Open Source & hence great for any kind of POC/Dev/Sandbox work.
What do you dislike?
- Does not have enterprise support.
- It's not ideal for production environments.
- Not abreast with latest releases of Ansible tower.
- Multiple releases in a single day are possible.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
- My team wanted to use Ansible tower for automation of server environments. However we were looking forward to have a POC with it before buying the actual subscription for Ansible Tower.

So we explored Ansible AWX , which is free to download & provides similar features as Ansible Tower . We used it to monitor & track our automations on Dev/Sandbox environments first.
