Cloud computing is known as a general term of using a network of remotely hosted servers on the internet to store, manage and process data. Cloud Computing is an authoritative technology that enables computing over the internet. It is used to reduce capital costs and expenses while enabling powerful applications like SaaS, DaaS, PaaS, UCaaS and the like.

What is Cloud Orchestration?

An organization can use many types of cloud computing at the same time, which increases the complexity along with potential chances for these cloud to turn into a storm especially when data and applications are used across multiple cloud solutions. Cloud orchestration is a process used to streamline multiple workloads across several cloud solutions in an automated fashion to synthesize it into a single workflow.

What is Cloud Orchestration

Cloud Orchestration is a service oriented architecture which is used to align multiple business requests with data, application and infrastructure resulting in a consolidated process of workflow. It is used to maximize the automation benefits of agility along with reducing the costs and risks.

How is Orchestration Different from Cloud Automation?

Cloud orchestration is mostly used correspondingly with cloud automation. This is the reason it is important to understand the differences between cloud orchestration and cloud automation.

SpecificationsCloud AutomationCloud Orchestration
Number of TasksIt performs a single taskIt combines multiple tasks into workflows
Requirements for PerformanceThere must be a sequence according to strict security guidelines and permissions must be granted to perform automated tasksOrchestration make sure to perform all the automated tasks in order, within a workflow
Error-pronenessIt requires an engineer to code huge amount of coding to input commands. So, probability of errors is higherOrchestration optimize the coding which means there is less chances of errors
Resources UsageEach task requires independent resources, resulting in resource wastefulnessIt creates a list of resources resulting into more accurate results while consuming lesser time

Cloud orchestration optimizes and simplifies the process by removing the repetitive steps and eliminating redundancy. It creates a flow by identifying automated tasks which make up a process ensuring their reusability in different operations. Therefore it takes advantage of utilizing existing building blocks.
