Cloud orchestration is the use of programming techniques to manage the interconnections and interactions among workloads on public and private cloud infrastructure.
Cloud orchestration products can simplify the intercomponent communication and connections to other apps and users and ensure that links are correctly configured and maintained. When evaluating cloud orchestration products, it is recommended that administrators first map the workflows of the applications involved. This step will help the administrator visualize how complicated the internal workflow for the application is and how often information flows outside the set of app components. This, in turn, can help the administrator decide which type of orchestration product will help automate workflow best and meet business requirements in the most cost-effective manner.
