Ansible literally allows to manage your whole infrastructure, not only
VM and servers, but network devices like cisco nexus, various cloud
providers (aws, cloudstack, openstack), use DNS service providers,
interact with loadbalancers such as netscaler or haproxy, manage system
configurations (windows, linux or unix), orchestrate your docker
containers, handle notifications, interact with monitoring tools, and
deploy app in a rolling updates, rollback on errors, etc while .. and
this is the most important part... keeping things relatively simple and

I can recommend a very well written book (shameless self plug) ;)
