Launch and manage stacks using the Dashboard

Launch and manage stacks using the Dashboard

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.

For information about:

  • administrative tasks on the command-line, see the OpenStack Administrator Guide.


    There are no administration-specific tasks that can be done through the Dashboard.

  • the basic creation and deletion of Orchestration stacks, refer to the OpenStack End User Guide.
