About Project ARIA
ARIA was formed to advance adoption of the TOSCA standard and accelerate the industry’s journey towards application orchestration in cloud environments.
ARIA, and TOSCA alike, were born out of the market need for a completely vendor / cloud / technology neutral orchestrator that allows for portability and interoperability. ARIA is expected to accelerate the development around the TOSCA specification, advance its adoption, demonstrate simplified portability of TOSCA orchestration, and increase agility through more rapid community contributed iterations.
ARIA stands for “Agile Reference Implementation of Automation”, it is a framework for implementing orchestration software based TOSCA(“Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications” a leading cloud-agnostic templating model formulated by the OASIS Foundation).
ARIA offers an actual code based and a library with a programmable interface that allows embedding ARIA into other collaborative projects, to enable organizations looking to incorporate TOSCA orchestration capabilities into their solutions.
To date, organizations looking to build their cloud application orchestration based on TOSCA application modeling have needed to learn and apply the TOSCA specification independently. This created many proprietary interpretations that are not always compatible, and have inhibited TOSCA’s inherent cloud portability benefits.
Through ARIA, application vendors will be able to test and run their applications easily, from blueprint to deployment, without the former hassle of developing the orchestration engine themselves, simplifying TOSCA certification and validation exponentially.
