Ansible Automation for Consistent Storage Environment Delivery

June 18, 2020 by

As storage management experts, NetApp IT leans on tools like RedHat Ansible to help automate the delivery of consistent storage environments, reduce configuration errors, and respond to threshold limits. Two years ago, the team started using ONTAP Ansible modules to reduce Day 0 build times from a 2-day manual process to an automated, 10-minute process. Today, their uses of Ansible has grown. From enforcement of SnapShot policies to deleting broken SnapMirror relationships, to autosizing volumes and automating iNodes and end-to-end SVM provisioning, the team has fully embraced automation. It is vital to the modern delivery of storage services.

Watch this webinar to hear how NetApp IT has adopted automation and infrastructure as code for storage management.
