IaaS clouds provide dynamic allocation of resources based on which one may orchestrate the deployment of a virtual infrastructure to realise interconnecting services. Occopus is a powerful, cloud agnostic, open-source, multi-cloud orchestration tool, supporting many cloud interfaces thanks to its flexible, extensible architecture. The paper introduces the tool and its most important characteristics, shows how it can be used on multi-cloud environment, and how infrastructure can be described. Finally, use case for deploying a docker cluster is also shown in details.
