IBM is now offering Red Hat Ansible Certified Content for IBM Z, enabling Ansible users to automate IBM Z applications and IT infrastructure.
The Certified Content will be available in Automation Hub, with an upstream open source version offered on Ansible Galaxy.
This means that no matter what mix of infrastructure clients are working with, IBM is bringing automation for IBM Z into the fold to help manage across hybrid environments through a single control panel.
Ansible functionality for z/OS will empower IBM Z clients to simplify configuration and access of resources, leverage existing automation, and streamline automation of operations using the same technology stack that they can use across their entire enterprise.
Delivered as a fully supported enterprise-grade solution with Content Collections, Red Hat Ansible Certified Content for IBM Z provides easy to use automation building blocks that can accelerate the automation of z/OS and z/OS-based software.
These initial core collections include connection plugins, action plugins, modules, and a sample playbook to automate tasks for z/OS such as creating data sets, retrieving job output and submitting jobs.
For developers and operations, Ansible allows them to break down traditional internal and historical technology silos to centralize automation, all while leveraging the performance, scale, control and security provided by IBM Z.
