Modules for Cloud and Docker

Ansible, not only supports setting up bare-metal and virtualized environments, it can actually go one step ahead and setup a cloud based environment with providers like Amazon Web Services, Digital Ocean, Google Cloud, Open Stack and many more. There are modules to manage Docker based setup as well. An exhaustive list of cloud modules can be found on Ansible's documentation.

Examples:

- name: data container
  docker:
    name: mydata
    image: busybox
    state: present
    volumes:
    - /data
- digital_ocean:
    state: present
    command: ssh
    name: my_ssh_key
    ssh_pub_key: 'ssh-rsa AAAA...'
