This document is envisaged to introduce the abilities of Occopus, a cloud orchestrator framework developed at SZTAKI (Hungary) to create and manage flexible computing infrastructures and services in a single or multi cloud system.

What is Occopus?

Occopus is an easy-to-use hybrid cloud orchestration tool. It is a framework that provides features for configuring and orchestrating distributed applications (so called virtual infrastructures) on single or multi cloud systems. Occopus can be used by application developers and devops to create and deploy complex virtual infrastructures as well as to manage them at deployment time and at runtime.


If you use Occopus, please cite at least one of the following publications:
