Ubicity is a pure TOSCA orchestrator: orchestration functionality is based exclusively on features in the TOSCA language without any built-in knowledge about domain-specific types or platform-specific implementations. Domain-specific information is introduced into the Orchestrator using TOSCA Profiles (a TOSCA Version 2.0 feature). Profiles include the artifacts that provide implementations for domain-specific types.
This webinar will highlight how Ubicity uses TOSCA features such as Requirement Fulfillment and Substitution Mapping to support abstract service templates that are realized based on available resources at deployment time. We will use deployment of Kubernetes Clusters as an example to demonstrate how Profiles are introduced into the Ubicity catalog, how the Orchestrator is made aware of external resources, how Service Archives are onboarded, and how services are deployed from the catalog.
