Orchestration is a key concept in the world of Cloud computing. It is needed to glue automated tasks together in the right order and to manage complex workflows and processes. Without orchestration you will spend valuable hours of your time connecting to servers and running tasks manually.

Automating Service Discovery Infrastructure Management using Consul


[size=120]Cloud servers are like cattle. You shoot them when they are sick and introduce new ones, which makes cloud infrastructure very dynamic. It becomes hard to keep track of running services and infrastructure configurations. Suppose, you are hosting a web application on cloud. You have to set up HAProxy with a pool of frontend and backend servers for load balancing and high availability.  You need to add/ remove servers in your pool to serve the traffic load. When a new server comes up, your infrastructure does not know about it or the service it provides. Also, you need to remove entries of left servers from your HAProxy, so traffic doesn’t get directed to them. You suddenly find yourself that you are not the cowboy who can drive tens of thousands of cows over great distances anymore, but a worried owner of puppies.  We need a service discovery system where we can query newly introduced nodes and services, and get notified when a node and service becomes unavailable. We also need a configuration management system to update and validate the configurations of the servers and the infrastructure.

This combination will provide an improvement for companies in their application deployment methodology. For an example, ECmanaged, a cloud-based company which is specialized in designing, deploying and maintaining IT platforms, is starting to use containers.

"Easily Manage Your Clouds With ECmanaged" by Cloudtweaks


[size=130]Even for the simplest of products or services, a better version will always find a market.
