Orchestration can be defined as the arrangement, sequencing and automated implementation of tasks, rules and policies to coordinate logical and physical resources in order to meet a customer or on-demand request to create, modify or remove network or service resources. Although automation lies in the core of orchestration, the former deals with tasks, whereas orchestration deals with workflows. Orchestration is a way to improve the CI/CD delivery of IT solutions.
The recently published learning unit “Introduction to Orchestration” in the Network Automation eAcademy gives an overview about orchestration, linking it with virtualisation and automation, and giving examples of popular orchestration solutions.
