MAX IV has been using Ansible to deploy and configure the control system for a long time, but software and tango device configuration weren't really linked together.

We developed a new Ansible role specifically to deploy Tango device servers.
This role allows us to define together the packages to install and the server/devices configuration. Servers can thus be restarted automatically when a new software version is deployed.
