Ansible is a radically simple IT automation system. It handles configuration-management, application deployment, cloud provisioning, ad-hoc task-execution, and multinode orchestration - including trivializing things like zero downtime rolling updates with load balancers.

Many users run straight from the development branch (it's generally fine to do so), but you might also wish to consume a release.
You can find instructions here for a variety of platforms. If you decide to go with the development branch, be sure to run git submodule update --init --recursive after doing a checkout.
If you want to download a tarball of a release, go to releases.ansible.com, though most users use yum (using the EPEL instructions linked above), apt (using the PPA instructions linked above), or pip install ansible.
