  • Agentless- Its work structure makes use of agentless architecture. The nodes are not required to install and run background daemons to connect with a controlling machine.
  • Low overhead- due to agentless model, Ansibles reduces the overheads on the network by preventing the nodes from polling the controlling machine.
  • Secure and consistent- Ansible only uses SSH and Python on the managed nodes. This ensures safety and security. Also, Ansible ensures consistent environments.
  • Reliable- an Ansible playbook can be idempotent when written carefully. This prevents unexpected side-effects on the managed systems.
  • Good performance- Ansible delivers flawless performance. Though it is very easy to set up yet it is a powerful tool for deploying software applications using SSH.
