Cloud orchestration refers to the arrangement and coordination of automated tasks resulting in a consolidated process or workflow. Many IT operations organizations implement automation in an ad hoc, opportunistic fashion that yields islands of automation with low operational agility and high costs.
Cloud orchestration helps IT administrators manage a public or private cloud environment by automating services or tasks, and coordinating workflows. Cloud orchestration tools enable systems to streamline resources, distribute workloads, and organize deployments across servers or cloud environments. Microsoft, IBM, Kubernetes, Terraform, Ansible, and Cloudify all have popular cloud orchestration solutions.
