Thanks to the long-term cooperation and collaboration with TOSCA Technical committee and our active involvement in various EU projects focused on cloud and security, we’ve cultivated a highly skilled orchestration team. The team is responsible for the development of the XFSC orchestrator and the xOpera project, demonstrating our proficiency in delivering standardized orchestrators and versatile meta-orchestration solutions.
XFSC Orchestrator, an Eclipse Foundation project
The XFSC Orchestrator is an open-source project where XLAB’s contributions have laid the groundwork for the Gaia-X orchestration services solution. As one of the cornerstones of the Gaia-X Services, it is responsible for automating application delivery using a specific cloud provider. The ultimate vision is to enable users to effortlessly choose services from the service providers’ catalogue within the Gaia-X portal and instantiate them through the Gaia-X Life Cycle Management Engine, which will intelligently select the most suitable Life Cycle Management Service (e.g., TOSCA orchestrator, Terraform, Ansible, Kubernetes and others) for deploying applications and services.
XLAB has played a pivotal role by contributing the orchestrator development skills and initiating the concept for the XFSC Orchestrator. This contribution encompasses:
The xOpera project offers a comprehensive suite of tools designed for orchestration and automation of cloud and edge applications. At its core, xOpera includes opera, a general-purpose OASIS TOSCA orchestrator, complemented with a rich set of plugins and add-ons. The project comprises the following key elements:
