How it Works
Cloudify is an orchestrator for apps on the cloud that will deploy, manage and scale the full application stack. The Cloudify manager processes the orchestration plans (aka: blueprints), monitors the state of the application and deploys agents that serve as execution units for carrying out the manager’s instructions. Cloudify’s open architecture allows you to create and use custom types, workflows and plugins to create an environment that works for you.
