Normalyze selects Conductor delivered by Orkes Cloud
Orkes Cloud delivers Conductor as a secure, highly performant hosted service. Orkes Cloud enables developers to build their applications quickly without worrying about resiliency or scale.The Orkes' founders developed the engine, Conductor, while working at Netflix and open-sourced the software in 2016. Since then, Conductor has experienced widespread adoption from a passionate developer community.
Today, thousands of organizations, from startups to Fortune 100 organizations, depend on Conductor for their mission-critical systems. How an organization chooses to use Conductor is limited by only imagination, and business cases range from media encoding, e-commerce order management, and continuous integration/deployment pipelines to fintech services and more.
Teams around the world rely upon Conductor on Orkes Cloud to reliably orchestrate their microservices at scale because Orkes Cloud makes it, so they have less to worry about. Orkes Cloud completely handles Conductor installation, tuning, patching, and managing their high-performing Conductor clusters. The enterprise-ready Orkes Cloud provides such features as role-based access control and single sign-on, making it straightforward to implement in any environment securely.
Ithal and the Normalyze team selected Conductor on Orkes Cloud not only because Conductor is a microservices orchestration engine focused on microservices and not only on data pipelines, but also because Orkes Cloud made it a snap to get immediately working and because Orkes Cloud is a language agnostic platform.
The team especially appreciated how easily they could implement Conductor on Orkes Cloud within their environment and how quickly they could see the details pertaining to their complex cloud workflows. "With Orkes Cloud, we can see which APIs are running and understand what they are doing in near real-time. When something unexpected happens, we can troubleshoot that nearly instantaneously," says Ithal
Looking at Conductor on Orkes Cloud to identify which task is causing trouble, compared to what we were doing before, is like night and day. It's a 90% reduction in time to debug issues, he adds.
When using Conductor managed on Orkes Cloud, the Normalyze development team can now cleanly decouple process flows of their applications from their implementation. This is made possible by orchestrating process flows using configurations separate from their implementation, and various flows can then be created using the same implementation. They can be dynamically changed whenever desired.
