With IBM Cloud Orchestrator, you can manage your cloud infrastructure and services.
IBM Cloud Orchestrator helps you with end-to-end service deployment across infrastructure and platform layers. It also provides integrated IT workflow capabilities for process automation and IT governance, resource monitoring, and cost management. The product offers you an extensible approach to integration with multiple environments such as network, storage, and hypervisor management tools.
Using IBM Cloud Orchestrator, you have a consistent, flexible, and automated way of integrating the cloud with customer data center policies, processes, and infrastructures across various IT domains, such as backup, monitoring, and security. IBM Cloud Orchestrator is based on a common cloud platform that is shared across IBM’s Cloud offerings.
This new class is the third in a series starting with the skills you acquired in Implementing Power Cloud Infrastructure with PowerVC (QZ001G) and building a Cloud in Implementing Cloud Manager with Openstack on Power Systems (QZ002G). This intermediate course will explore the components of IBM Cloud Orchestrator, the integration into Power Systems, interactions of OpenStack components, and how to work with IBM Orchestrator.
