Getting Started With Kubernetes Operators (Ansible Based) - Part 2

Introduction:

In the first part of this blog series, getting started with Kubernetes operators (Helm based), we learned the basics of operators and build a Helm based operator. In this blog post, we will try out an ansible based operator. Ansible is a very popular tool used by organizations across the globe for configuration management, deployment, and automation of other operational tasks, this makes Ansible an ideal tool to build operators as with operators also we intend to eliminate/minimize the manual interventions required while running/managing our applications on kubernetes. Ansible based operators allow us to use Ansible playbooks and roles to manage our application on kubernetes.
