Rumor: Red Hat takes DevOps company Ansible about




Red Hat has reportedly DevOps Ansible software company acquired for $ 100 million. The announcement of the acquisition of the company focused on server management will probably be announced Friday.

It writes VentureBeat following reports from “sources familiar with the matter.” The first stable release of Ansible was released in 2012 by Michael Dehaen as open source platform for configuring and maintaining computers and networks. The company Ansible Inc. was established in March 2013. The software combines the ability to distribute applications to multiple nodes via eg container Docker, ad hoc tasks and configurations to keep track of the different nodes.

The nodes themselves do not need to have installed the application, so no additional processing power or memory may be used in the background daemons. The company makes money on support and paid Ansible Tower, the platform quickly gained popularity. In addition, the basic functionality is also available free of charge.

Neither company wanted to respond opposite VentureBeat on the rumors. The current CEO and co-founder of Ansible Inc. Said Ziouani previously worked for Red Hat at the department for sales and business development. The acquisition of Ansible by Red Hat fits into the line of Red Hat’s own company, especially because Ansible already integrated into Red Hat’s Open Shift, OpenStack and Red Hat Enterprise Linux via the repositories.
