The books “Ansible for VMware by Examples” and “Ansible for Kubernetes by Example” provides a comprehensive guide on how to automate various tasks in VMware and Kubernetes using Ansible, an open-source IT automation tool. Here are some key points about the book and its value:
Automation of Kubernetes Infrastructure: The book focuses on using Ansible to automate different aspects of Kubernetes infrastructure, including pods, services, storage, and cluster management. By automating these tasks, IT professionals can save time, reduce human errors, and create more robust cloud-native applications.
Infrastructure as Code (IaC): The book emphasizes the concept of Infrastructure as Code, which involves managing infrastructure resources through machine-readable code. Ansible allows you to define and deploy your Kubernetes infrastructure using human-readable YAML files, making it easier to understand and maintain your infrastructure configuration.
Real-Life Use Cases: Each chapter of the book explores a specific use case for automating Kubernetes with Ansible. It provides code demonstrations and real-life examples to illustrate how Ansible can be applied in practical scenarios. This hands-on approach helps readers understand the concepts better and apply them to their own environments.
Ansible Troubleshooting: The book covers Ansible troubleshooting techniques, helping readers identify and resolve common issues that may arise during automation. Troubleshooting skills are essential for maintaining a stable and reliable automated infrastructure.
Integration with Kubernetes Cloud Providers: The book demonstrates how to automate Kubernetes cloud services offered by popular providers such as Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) using Ansible. This enables seamless integration and management of Kubernetes clusters across different cloud platforms.
Target Audience: The book is targeted towards IT professionals in the information technology field, including Linux and Windows Systems Administrators, DevOps professionals, thought leaders, and infrastructure-as-code enthusiasts. It is designed to provide a jargon-free understanding of Ansible and its application in Kubernetes automation.
By reading this book, IT professionals can gain valuable knowledge and skills in automating Kubernetes infrastructure using Ansible. They will learn how to streamline their workflow, increase productivity, and ensure consistency in managing Kubernetes clusters. Ultimately, this knowledge can help organizations achieve efficient and scalable Kubernetes deployments while minimizing manual efforts and errors.
