Service orchestration is a paradigm that supports cloud providers in arranging, coordinating, and managing computing resources as a system of components and automated workflows that can be delivered as cloud services to cloud consumers. The scope of this involves three types of system components—the service layer, the resource abstraction and control layer, and the physical resource layer—which are the underlying foundations of the cloud provider’s offerings provided in a service catalog.
This webinar discusses content from the document, “ODCA Master Usage Model: Service Orchestration.” The session illustrates the usage model for service discovery and orchestration for cloud services. This usage model includes the components, repositories, data structures, conversation maps, and workflows that assist a cloud consumer in defining required services, and the associated cloud provider to orchestrate services to meet objectives determined by the cloud subscriber and for the appropriate context of use. It defines automation required for orchestration that includes programmatic interfaces, interaction patterns, control interfaces, and lifecycle management.
