Ansible is a very powerful open source automation language. What makes it unique from other management tools, is that it is also a deployment and orchestration tool. In many respects, it aims to provide large productivity gains to a wide variety of automation challenges. While Ansible provides more productive drop-in replacements for many core capabilities in other automation solutions, it also seeks to solve other major IT challenges.
One of these challenges is to enable continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) with zero downtime. This goal has often required extensive custom coding, working with multiple software packages, and lots of in-house-developed glue to achieve success. Ansible provides all of these capabilities in one composition, being designed from the beginning to orchestrate exactly these types of scenarios.
