Early Red Hat Executives Return to Disrupt Enterprise IT Automation

In Just 12 Months, Ansible Has Over 100 Customers, One Million+ Downloads and Is the #1 IT Automation Project on GitHub

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- ANSIBLEFEST -- Ansible, Inc., the company that provides products, support and services for the popular Ansible open source IT automation project, today announced that in its first year of operation the company has become one of GitHub's most popular open source projects and a game-changing commercial IT automation product that boasts installations in over 100 customer sites around the world.

Start-ups and Fortune 1000 customers alike have installed Ansible for managing both on-premise and cloud infrastructures -- from a few servers to large-scale deployments with thousands of nodes. Ansible has been adopted at organizations such as Splunk, Samsung, GoPro, Rackspace, Atlassian, NASA, Verizon, and many others because it is easy to install and use, yet powerful enough to manage large, complex infrastructures.

Reunited Red Hat Leadership Team

Ansible's executive team is primarily made up of early Red Hat executives who took part in the market disruption created by Linux and open source. The team is tapping into that experience and knowledge to actively influence product direction, community expansion and to establish a disruptive and scalable commercial model.

"When building an executive team in any industry, domain experience is a crucial ingredient," said Stephen O'Grady, Principal Analyst at RedMonk. "It's difficult to think of a business with more experience in building a disruptive commercial ecosystem around open source than Red Hat, which is why the Ansible team's history there will be a major asset moving forward."

"We are thrilled to see Ansible commanding a leadership position in IT automation, thanks to record user and customer adoption," said Saïd Ziouani, CEO at Ansible. "We have assembled a powerful team of early Red Hat veterans to disrupt the IT automation marketplace with a powerful open source community and a sustainable business model."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
