Otter's orchestration jobs allow users to swiftly deploy changes to servers, both Linux and Windows, interact with cloud services, and provision virtual machines. Orchestration jobs run a specified orchestration plan against the targeted servers. They can be run immediately (for example, test servers in unexpected drift), at scheduled times in the future (planned changes to a production server), or on a recurring basis (adding more servers at known peak times). Orchestration jobs are created on the jobs page, and require the selection of an orchestration plan and servers for the desired plan to run against.

PowerShell is the standard for automating configuration on Windows servers, and Otter was designed to seamlessly integrate with it. You're able to save scripts as assets, and call them directly from within a plan. Whether that means running your existing scripts across dozens of servers, leveraging scripts built by the community, or anything else. This allows you to easily reuse scripts and store them in a safe and secure way. This tight integration allows you to leverage PowerShell DSC and utilize the Inedo visual editor from easy server configuring.

Otter is the only Infrastructure as Code tool designed with native Windows support. We built Otter using Windows-friendly technologies (.NET), and it doesn't need to go through layers of Ruby for core functionality. Otter's powerful execution engine won't lag under the extreme server configurations that Modern Infrastructure demands. Otter allows for infrastructure modeling on a grand scale with 1000's of servers, all while maintaining ease-of-use, down to changes for just a single server.
