Configuration management systems are designed to streamline the process of controlling large numbers of servers, for administrators and operations teams. They allow you to control many different systems in an automated way from one central location.

While there are many popular configuration management tools available for Linux systems, such as Chef and Puppet, these are often more complex than many people want or need. Ansible is a great alternative to these options because it offers an architecture that doesn’t require special software to be installed on nodes, using SSH to execute the automation tasks and YAML files to define provisioning details.

In this guide, we’ll discuss how to install Ansible on an Ubuntu 20.04 server and go over some basics of how to use this software.
