This plugin integrates Ansible's IT automation platform with both Windows and Linux fleets at scale.

The walkthrough guides users through setting up Ansible on an EC2 Linux instance, cloning the GitHub repo, and configuring the dynamic inventory provider. Key steps include creating an IAM role, setting up networking, and launching the Ansible control server.
