The Reliant Platform success is due to the implementation of orchestration, which involves the management of events and activity associated with application and system support. This can include very simple actions like system reboots, applying updates, or executing a specific maintenance action such as deleting unnecessary system files.
In a small environment with only a handful of systems, managing and automating orchestration is not a requirement. But when an enterprise has thousands of individual systems that interact with each other on some level, orchestration automation is both powerful and essential.
Orchestration systems maintain a central repository of actions which, as with configuration management, can be programmed with complex logic. A good orchestration system includes a bi-directional command/control pathway that can request actions and can receive information back on the results of an orchestration action.
Container orchestration provides the mechanism through which IT organizations run and manage the applications and services containers. This is one of the many practices that Reliant adopts within its platform infrastructure in order to provide edge computing benefits.
