AnsibleWorks Releases AWX: IT Orchestration and Application Deployment for the Enterprise

AWX, Managing On-Premise and Cloud Infrastructure, the Easy Way

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 6, 2013) - AnsibleWorks, Inc., the company behind Ansible, the popular Open Source IT application deployment and configuration management solution, announced today the release of AWX, the company's first commercial enterprise product, addressing the need for simple, powerful and secure IT automation on premise and in the cloud.

"Today is an exciting day for AnsibleWorks users and customers. Managing complex infrastructure, simply and reliably, is now even easier with AnsibleWorks AWX," said Saïd Ziouani, CEO of AnsibleWorks. "IT automation has evolved requiring enterprises to maintain large amounts of in-house or third-party scripting code. Ansible simplifies IT automation, and with AWX, application deployment, configuration management, and advanced IT orchestration are now possible with the touch of a button."

AnsibleWorks AWX brings together the simplicity of Ansible IT orchestration and advanced features such as Role Based Access Control, Centralized Reporting, Autoscaling Provisioning Integration, and a fully featured REST API for integrating Ansible with other applications. Most significantly, a modern web interface allows teams to divide up systems management responsibilities and easily control who has access to what resources -- with push-button access to launching automation tasks and viewing results. 

Matt Coddington, Systems Architect at Care.com, said, "AWX will allow us to standardize the interface teams use to deploy different stacks, update configurations, and execute other orchestration tasks. We're also really excited about the applications we may build internally, which take advantage of AWX's REST interface."

"With scale out architectures increasingly the dominant choice, whether in the public cloud or private datacenters, orchestration and configuration management become vitally important," said Stephen O'Grady, Principal Analyst with RedMonk. "By leveraging existing web standards like REST and SSH, as well as including a web interface, AnsibleWorks is intended to make the process of deployment, management and more as low friction as possible."
