Tech Focus | Kubernetes & The Quest for Orchestration
Kubernetes adoption is growing rapidly and has become the de-facto standard platform for running cloud-native applications. Having said that more than half (52%) of companies are not widely adopting Kubernetes within their organizations due to a lack of expertise, highlighting the operational complexity of Kubernetes deployment and the acute need for management solutions – cited […]
Tech Focus | The Path to Intelligent Orchestration
Orchestration can be viewed as part of an automation continuum- even though, of course, all software is essentially automation. Layer upon layer of abstraction has been built to improve productivity and understand complex systems. The cloud revolution is built up these abstractions, going beyond mere application logic to the computer itself; these abstractions are the […]
Cheat Sheet | Essential Automation Hacks
In our data-driven world, remarkable growth in network traffic has led to the dramatic expansion of network infrastructure. Manual, script-based legacy network management methods can no longer keep up with the speed of business. As a result, we have seen the emergence of network automation, where physical and virtual devices on a network are configured, […]

Our very own Shay Naeh documented the projected, and created an in-depth summary (including a recorded demo) available now on Medium. Click here to read the full article.
Why Service Orchestration Matters… and Why You Need To Care.
The rising demand for services in the cloud calls for a new approach to cloud orchestration. Traditional VM-centric cloud architectures are often rigid and poorly suited for the quick and smooth deployment of new services and technologies. To thrive in a service-oriented market, companies must be able to efficiently orchestrate components such as microservices and […]
ETSI & Cloudify
Open-source as a way to drive open standard has been one of the founding concepts behind Cloudify’s strategy since day-one.

It’s available as an open-source product […]
Agentless Auto-Healing Of VMs in Cloudify
One of Cloudify Manager’s distinctive features is the ability to perform automated day 2+ operational tasks. These typically boil down to analyzing an event stream produced by agents, and reacting by running workflows. Auto-healing is one such task. A metric is identified as a trigger, and when it fails to be delivered to the manager […]
