Nomad is a workload orchestrator built by HashiCorp. But what is a workload orchestrator? For instance, let us say you have an application that needs to be deployed. Ideally, you will find a server with the necessary resource allocation needed by the application, deploy the code in it, set up networking, manage the lifecycle of the application, etc. Handling all these manually will not enable us to scale our application. To achieve all these with ease, orchestrators comes to our rescue.
