Abstract: The use of orchestration and automation has been growing in recent years. This can be especially evident in cloud infrastructures where OASIS TOSCA orchestration standard can be used to provide independence and prevent vendor lock-in. In this paper we examine different TOSCA compliant orchestration tools, test them with TOSCA templates and present a comparison between these tools. This comparison should be used to decide which tool is easier to use for both the companies and the developers according to their requirements.
