We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

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.
