Pros
TOSCA model allows modeling the application rather than the automation. It is a machine-readable representation of the application and its infrastructure, which can be used for other things too, not just for the orchestration (e.g. enterprise architecture big picture, who connects to whom).Cloudify provides the infrastructure-as-code, as well as operational action capabilities (orchestrated startups or upgrades, and more).Product has given us the ability to catch early scaling issues that many companies hit on with private clouds.Extensible internal functions and plugins. Can implement custom plugins to fit your scenario. Python based plugins.You can use only what you need. You can remove certain Cloudify functions from the framework to create a "minified" version of what you need. This might only consist of the messaging delivery system, and the orchestration functions.Valuable features are auto-scaling and load balancing.
