AnsibleWorks Raises $6M For Popular Open-Source And Easy-To-Use IT Automation Framework

AnsibleWorks has raised $6 million from Menlo Ventures for its open-source framework that has become immensely popular for its easy to use environment that simplifies the often mystical world of IT Automation.

The Ansible orchestration engine allows users to avoid writing custom scripts or code to manage applications and uses a language that embraces the idea of building workflows that most people can understand, said Saïd Ziouani, co-founder and CEO of AnsibleWorks in an email interview this week. By opening up IT automation to a less technical community, more people can do the work needed to get apps to the marketplace. In turn, that also means less reliance on traditional IT, faster delivery and better time spent on important projects.
