Invent your own Python scripts to automate your infrastructure
Make the most of Python libraries and modules to automate your infrastructure
Leverage Python programming to automate server configurations and administration tasks
Efficiently develop your Python skill set
Hands-On Enterprise Automation with Python starts by covering the set up of a Python environment to perform automation tasks, as well as the modules, libraries, and tools you will be using.
We'll explore examples of network automation tasks using simple Python programs and Ansible. Next, we will walk you through automating administration tasks with Python Fabric, where you will learn to perform server configuration and administration, along with system administration tasks such as user management, database management, and process management. As you progress through this book, you'll automate several testing services with Python scripts and perform automation tasks on virtual machines and cloud infrastructure with Python. In the concluding chapters, you will cover Python-based offensive security tools and learn how to automate your security tasks.
By the end of this book, you will have mastered the skills of automating several system administration tasks with Python.
