The previous article described several ways to implement Continuous Deployment. Specifically, it described, among other things, how to implement it using Docker to deploy applications as containers and nginx for reverse proxy necessary for successful utilization of blue-green deployment technique. All that was running on top of CoreOS, operating system specifically designed for running Docker containers.
In this article we’ll try to do the same process using Ansible (an open-source platform for configuring and managing computers). Instead of CoreOS, we’ll be using Ubuntu.
