Here is the fourth part of the series and it is about Collections! A new way to deal with modules, roles and plugins. It is a recent feature which is part of a larger change in Ansible's releases.
After a long break (and moving to Quebec!), here is the third part of the Ansible series. This time I will try to do a shorter article by focusing on a single subject, variables!
Second part of the Ansible article series. The objective is still the same, to increase our skill on the tool based on use cases. Like the first part, it will be a mix of good practices but also of my own experience feedback. In this article, we come back to the basics of the product as well as the realization of a first Playbook. We will start the deployment of a Stack TIG (Telegraf, InfluxDB, Grafana) for the supervision of a VMware environment (vCenter + ESXi), it will be our common thread 🙂

First part of a new series about Ansible. It is oriented on use cases. I will talk how I use this great tool as a virtualization system engineer. This first part is focus on the way to setup a Control Node on Windows 10 through WSL.
