Ansible and DLT Solutions Partner to Bring Simple IT Automation to Government Customers
MARCH 19, 2015 – Durham, NC. – Ansible, Inc., the leading provider of simple, agentless orchestration and configuration management tools to IT and DevOps organizations, today announced a new partnership with leading government IT value-added reseller (VAR) DLT Solutions. This is Ansible’s first government reselling partnership. Leveraging key strategic relationships, including Red Hat and Amazon Web Services, DLT Solutions provides software and services across the technology landscape, and will enable Ansible to deliver IT automation seamlessly to government customers.
“The Ansible open source project is already in widespread use across U.S. Federal and local government institutions,” said Saïd Ziouani, CEO of Ansible. “Now, in partnership with DLT Solutions, we are excited to bring Ansible Tower and Ansible services to government customers in the same way that we are serving Fortune 500 customers today.”
Ansible’s simplicity, its agentless and secure design and its powerful orchestration features make it the perfect fit for government customers who need to automate server or cloud configurations and application deployments. Ansible Tower extends the power of Ansible by providing control (centralized job runs through an automation dashboard), security (role-based access control and audit trails) and delegation (push-button job execution, portal mode and REST API for integration).
“Public sector IT organizations realize that in order to fully realize the benefits of a public or private cloud platform IT automation is critical,” said David Blankenhorn, vice president of engineering and chief cloud technologist at DLT Solutions. “Ansible provides our public sector customers with powerful tools that greatly simplify the automation of applications, systems, and both on premise and cloud resources. We look forward to working with an innovative leader such as Ansible to continue helping our customers streamline their work flows.”
Ansible will be available on DLT Solutions’ GSA IT Schedule70 and Ansible will use DLT Solutions’ considerable portfolio of Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts to ease the procurement process for customers large and small. Additionally, Justin Nemmers has joined the Ansible team as Director of Government to focus purely on the growing the Ansible Government business unit. Nemmers brings years of federal and commercial experience from Red Hat, as well as several successful startups.
