StackStorm

We use StackStorm because we were already sold on Ansible but needed a flexible orchestration server from which to run our ansible code. Stackstorm, with its sensors and rules engine, was perfect for integrating ansible with other systems, such as ServiceNow.

StackStorm's features

  • Automations tie events to actions you’d like to take, using a rules engine and, if you want, comprehensive workflow. Automations are your operational patterns summarized as code.
  • StackStorm automations work either by starting with your existing scripts – just add simple meta data – or by authoring the automations within StackStorm.
  • Automations are the heart of StackStorm – they allow you to share operational patterns, boost productivity, and automate away the routine.
  • CLI, REST API + Python Bindings
