This session is aimed at DBAs who want to efficiently administer (large) groups of (linux) hosts. Ansible is a tool for automating typical DBA tasks like configuration file management, software deployment, upgrades. The specific reason for me for choosing Ansible is it doesn't require any agent installation on it's targets, it's using ssh just like you normally use to access and administer hosts. This also makes it an excellent consultant tool for quickly executing routine tasks with ultimate precision.
