Making the most of lockdown


What have you done during lockdown? Here at WLAN-Partner, we have used the time to implement new automation steps in our infrastructure. We have replaced our previous automation solution with Ansible. For us as a network-oriented system integrator, Ansible is advantageous given that we can also use it to manage all our network devices.

In recent years, we have integrated different automation solutions for different purposes. But we were never really happy with them. Now, after a great deal of hard work and perseverance, we have established the ultimate automation solution.

As an aside, we also have a CI/CD pipeline that we actively use, as well as workflows that verify changes through peer review and are only subsequently approved for production. In this way, we ensure that no quick and hasty changes can be made.
