Resource Template Service/HEAT (RTS)

Non-experts can create their own scripts

Using cloud resources is generally a task reserved for IT experts. Resources are made available using a console or automatically via an API. This is where orchestration services come in – they simplify the provision of cloud resources, enabling even users who are not experts in IT to design and roll out a cloud landscape. They fill templates with plain text, thereby creating instructions for the cloud. The final instructions can be saved and used again at a later stage, so that defined system landscapes do not have to be configured from scratch each time.

Resource Template Service in the Open Telekom Cloud

Heat is the cloud orchestration template from OpenStack. This also enables those who are not experts in IT to create their own scripts for using Open Telekom Cloud resources. The scripts are created based on templates, which contain formatted text that the user can read and that the Resource Template Service can compile (convert into programming code) easily. The compiled file contains all instructions needed to bring together the required resources and equip them with the matching software. The Resource Template Service is free to use, but the used resources may generate costs.
