This book will show you how to write a blueprint of your infrastructure, encompassing multitier applications using Ansible’s playbooks. Beginning with basic concepts such as plays, tasks, handlers, inventory, and the YAML syntax that Ansible uses, you will see how to organize your code into a modular structure. Building on this, you will master techniques to create data-driven playbooks with variables, templates, logical constructs, and encrypted data. This book will also take you through advanced clustering concepts, such as discovering topology information about other nodes in the cluster, managing multiple environments with isolated configurations, and orchestrate infrastructure and deploy applications in a coordinated manner.
