Complete Ansible Semaphore Tutorial: From Installation to Automation

Semaphore is very easy to set up and use, and can be a great asset to those of you that are currently using Ansible. And even if you’re not an Ansible user, you might become one if you spend time with Semaphore. Ansible is the leading configuration management solution, and Semaphore makes Ansible easier than it already was.
