Did anybody say webscale?
Hi Grig!Ansible is really awesome, are you using it already?I remember when we started Overmind together long ago, and we also evaluated a configuration management system similar to Chef but in Python. I ended up creating LittleChef.Years later at my company our cookbooks and roles have become convoluted and out of date, difficult to maintain.Ansible just looks so much better. Simpler in the configuration/data part, and at the same time allows modules in any language. How cool is that? I will certainly make an experiment configuring part of our infrastructure with Ansible.
Hi Miquel! Good to hear from you ;) I haven't used ansible 'in anger' yet, only for my own experiments, but I really like it. You're right in that Chef cookbooks become hard to maintain over time, and they don't lend themselves very well to being modified by both devs and ops. I'll definitely look into ansible more.
