    Hi Ezechias,


    Yes, Ansible is a good choice. However, I would like to add that it is not the only once. Their are different phases in DevOps and tools to facilitate DevOps culture. You will always end up using different automation tools for different purposes. Would like to recommend you to learn the following at your own pace:

    1. Ansible
    2. Puppet
    3. Docker
    4. Jenkins
    5. Kubernetes
    6. ELKB

    Feel free to ask in case of any questions :)

    Ansible is now owned by IBM :)   I also recommend SaltStack.   You can use it like ansible in ssh mode also to bootstrap minions,  and has Grains, Pillars and States--which is the most heavy metal terminology as well (compare with "playbooks" and "recipe").

    Ansible is a great place to start, and the Linux Academy course will teach all the basics and even enough advanced topics to get you well on your way.

    Once you get the Pillar concept you will get the job :) and understand the Helm file at a glance.
