Last Updated: Apr 01, 2020

Operation Orchestration Service (OOS) is an automated operations and maintenance (O&M) service provided by Alibaba Cloud, which helps you to manage and execute O&M tasks. You can use templates to define the O&M tasks, including task orders, input parameters, and output parameters. The O&M tasks will be executed automatically as you have defined in the templates. OOS can be used to manage diverse Alibaba Cloud services, such as Elastic Compute Service (ECS), ApsaraDB for RDS, Server Load Balancer (SLB), and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
