We have tested out Ansible Tower, but there is a budget issue, so that is in our next phase. Red Hat's open source approach was a factor when choosing Ansible, since the solution is free as of right now.

It's opensource so it's free. But, not free as in beer. The most important cost here is the learning curve. Small targets like local user management (backup/monitoring) or monitoring configuration management (Syslog/SNMP) are some of the easiest and low-risk ones can learn from. The OPEX gain is high, though. So, the ROI is definitely there. For the UI, you might want to pay for Ansible Tower. But, there's also the opensource upstream project, AWX.

Ansible Tower is free. Until they lower the cost, we are holding off on purchasing the product.

We went with product because we have a subscription for Red Hat.

Hello community, I work as a DevOps Engineer at a Tech Services Company. Currently, I'm comparing Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform with HashiCorp Terraform. Both are Infrastructure as Code (IaC) platforms. Which one would you choose and why? Please specify the pros/cons, if possible. I appreciate the help!

Dear Sir, It seems you want and end-to-end solution. You have a number of options: use a Build tool (like Jenkins) and a Deployment tool. Whatever Build or deploy tool you want to use, verify if they have an out-of-the-box solution for building and deploying WAS. If tou want a full DevOps solution and Orchestration of the whole process you can have a look at our IKANALM solution that has out-of-the-box build and deploy phases where you just need to adapt the parameters. The solution is web based and works with Clearcase. More info at and René De Vleeschauwer CEO Ikan

There are many potential tools and solutions in the market. If your goal is a repeatable process across the pipeline (from Dev) to production, then a mechanism that is built on flexible and repeatable process would be a sound choice. Managing the entire Build and Deploy process requires control and management over Continuous Integration (Build) and then Continuous Delivery (Deploy). This whole process can be fully automated, with the option of stage (control) gates if required. Please contact me if you require more detail.
