Ansible is an automation tool that comes under IAAC (infrastructure as a code). Ansible is used for provisioning the infrastructure of the working environment, and virtualized hosts. It can also be used to install services and provision resources inside the cloud infrastructure. Ansible AWX is a freely available project tool for testing, which can be used in the lab, POC environment or deployment. It is considered the foundation on which the Ansible Tower was created. Also, AWX is a code branch that only goes through minimal and quality engineering testing. Basically, AWX is a solution that makes possible Ansible to be more comfortable to use. The basic idea of AWX is to be the hub for all automation tasks.
