CCO (Required)

The CloudCenter Orchestrator (CCO), also referred to as Orchestrator, has the following characteristics:

  • Is a virtual backend server that intelligently encapsulates the best practices of each cloud and does not add any performance overhead. It is is transparent to users, and resides in datacenter, private cloud, and public cloud environments. It decouples an application from its underlying cloud, and isolates the complexity of the cloud infrastructure.
  • CloudCenter requires one CCO per cloud region or datacenter,:
    • Each CCO must register with a CCM and communicates directly with the CCM irrespective of the cloud on which the CCO is deployed.
    • CloudCenter treats an isolated network as a private cloud and requires a separate CCO.
    • A single CCO can manage up to 10,000 Virtual Machines (VMs) in a public, private, or hybrid cloud.
