Why we need for Network Automation?

As a network/system engineer, future will be different. Not just login devices with SSH tools. We must automate the network with scripts.

Ansible is simple, easy to learn and very powerful tool to automate networks. With Ansible you can do very fast operations and collecting logs.

 

In this course, you will start from beginning. Than as below playbooks (aka scripts), you will learn how to collect logs from device and configure devices. All playbooks are work related and prepare for REAL LIFE networking.

 

What will you do after course?

There are 9 of hands-on projects about Cisco Automation. You can directly use all of codes in your real network.

– Collect logs with Raw Module

– Run Show Commands

– Save Logs to Files

– Configuration with Loop

– Send Config Commands

– Backup Configuration

– Run Commands from File

– Save Configuration

 

Additionally you can find:

– 8 Juniper Playbooks

– 5 Huawei Playbooks

 

Why Is Ansible?

Ansible is a powerful network automation tool. Without any coding experience, you can automate your network easily with just couple of lines of playbooks.

For example you can collect 10 devices CPU levels in couple of minutes. But what about 100, 1K+ devices. It’s almost imposible to do it one-by-one. Ansible shows its power here. With a very basics script, you can collect hunderds of devices logs, or configure them.
