Ansible & Quality Assurance

For several years, like many, I have used Ansible to provision development environments that match our production environment, removing the phrase “it works on my machine” from my vocabulary. At Basho, we officially support client libraries for Riak across eight languages, 3 API interfaces and sixteen different operating systems.

Ansible now plays a critical role making sure that new versions of Riak work as expected before we ship them to our customers. I am going to share with you what we did and how we did it.
