DataOps Orchestration

All DataOps jobs must use an orchestrator image that provides the most appropriate applications and tools to run the job.

The most commonly used orchestrations are:

Orchestration Types

DataOps orchestrators fall into two types: pre-set or flexible.

Pre-Set Orchestrators

Most DataOps orchestrators support a pre-set operation, meaning they perform a single main action, configured using job variables. Therefore, the job's script block only needs to call the /dataops entry point, e.g.:

My Job:
script: /dataops

It is possible to insert additional orchestrator scripts into the /dataops execution sequence to perform additional setup or other actions.

Flexible Orchestrators

Some orchestrators do not have a pre-set action and instead provide a set of utilities that support whatever actions the job developer requires. Jobs using flexible orchestrators do not typically call the /dataops entrypoint (although it is still available if needed), but instead define their own sequence of script actions.
