    In computing, orcharhino is a data center automation tool by the company ATIX [1] which allows system administrators to deploy, manage, and configure hosts. [2]

    It is a downstream product of Foreman (software) similar to Red Hat Satellite (software). [3] It relies on open source software like the Katello plugin for content management, Pulp for repository management, and Candlepin for subscription management.

    Unlike Satellite, orcharhino is independent of the used operating system: Hosts may run Debian [4] , CentOS, Oracle Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server [5] , Ubuntu, or Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, Server 2016, or Server 2019. Organizations therefore do not rely on solely using one operating systems such as RHEL with Satellite or Ubuntu with Landscape.

    orcharhino includes errata support for Debian and Ubuntu hosts [6] , i.e. security patches for Debian-based operating systems, and the SCC (SUSE Customer Center) manager, a Foreman plugin to incorporate SUSE subscriptions and synchronize content for SLES hosts. [7] It also includes the application centric deployment plugin to deploy multi-host applications. [8]

    Orcharhino supports Ansible, Puppet, and Salt as configuration management tools to configure hosts and remedy drifts. The managed hosts register against the local orcharhino server and access the provided resources like software packages, patches, configuration, etc. while they also provide information about the current health state of the host back to the server.

    Typical orcharhino usage consists of three parts: an orcharhino server, an orcharhino proxy, and managed hosts. The orcharhino server enables planning and management of the content life cycle and the configuration of hosts through its management UI, CLI (Hammer), or API (RESTful API). It mirrors and provides all relevant content like software packages, security errata, and locally added software to the managed hosts. Orcharhino proxies mirror content from the orcharhino server to establish content sources in different geographical or logical locations, e.g. different data centers, networks, or subnets. [9] Managed hosts receive their content and configuration from either the orcharhino server or orcharhino proxy. orcharhino can deploy systems to various compute resource providers, such as VMware and Proxmox; but also cloud providers such as Amazon EC2, Google GCE, and Microsoft Azure.
