The Orchestration service provides a template-based orchestration engine for the OpenStack cloud. Orchestration services create and manage cloud infrastructure resources such as storage, networking, instances, and applications as a repeatable running environment.
Administrators use templates to create stacks, which are collections of resources. For example, a stack might include instances, floating IPs, volumes, security groups, or users. The Orchestration service offers access to all OpenStack core services via a single modular template, with additional orchestration capabilities such as auto-scaling and basic high availability.
