Abstract: Open Stack is a free and open source stage under the terms of the Apache permit that has an arrangement of tools for the creation and administration of private, public and hybrid distributed computing. The product is created for a control of an extensive variety of handling, stockpiling and systems administration assets all through a server farm. It can be dealt with as an Infrastructure as a Service demonstrate unequivocally associated with Platform as a Service demonstrate. OpenStack deal with the IT foundation, give correspondence interface, virtualizes assets and develop the enforcement. It gives a design that gives the adaptability in the clouds configuration, incorporating coordination with existing frameworks and thirdparty technologies. Clients either oversee it through an electronic dashboard. Users either manage it through a web-based dashboard. But the implementation of OpenStack is very complex. To make it easier we can use configuration management tools like puppet, ansible, and chef. Among these, the ansible is very powerful and easy to understand. Ansible uses playbooks and ad-hoc commands to manage the remote system. Using Ansible we are making OpenStack more powerful as because using ansible we can modify and manipulate the backend working of OpenStack according to our need. The configuration of OpenStack is one thing what we want to change is the parameters or attributes that are used by the components of OpenStack. We are putting two of the powerful tools together. That will change the experience of using OpenStack. As such ansible is configuration management tool that will increase the efficiency of the OpenStack.
