Ansible vs CloudSlang: What are the differences?
Developers describe Ansible as "Radically simple configuration-management, application deployment, task-execution, and multi-node orchestration engine". Ansible is an IT automation tool. It can configure systems, deploy software, and orchestrate more advanced IT tasks such as continuous deployments or zero downtime rolling updates. Ansible’s goals are foremost those of simplicity and maximum ease of use. On the other hand, CloudSlang is detailed as "An open source tool for orchestrating cutting edge technologies". It can orchestrate anything you can imagine in an agentless manner. You can use or customize ready-made YAML based workflows. They are powerful, shareable and human readable. Modernize your IT with it.
Ansible and CloudSlang can be primarily classified as "Server Configuration and Automation" tools.
Some of the features offered by Ansible are:
- Ansible's natural automation language allows sysadmins, developers, and IT managers to complete automation projects in hours, not weeks.
- Ansible uses SSH by default instead of requiring agents everywhere. Avoid extra open ports, improve security, eliminate "managing the management", and reclaim CPU cycles.
- Ansible automates app deployment, configuration management, workflow orchestration, and even cloud provisioning all from one system.
On the other hand, CloudSlang provides the following key features:
- Process based
- Ready-made content
