Can we use mCollective with Powershell DSC for parallel job processing, i have read DSC push mode is not scalable, hence looking for alternatives. Anyone has any idea on this?

Best regards

I'm not sure why push mode isn't scalable, actually. I don't think there are facts to back that. However, push alone is not orchestration; if you need orchestration, then any orchestration platform would be a viable candidate.

DSC is a technology platform, not a tool set. Orchestration is a tool set atop a platform. Different things. Both useful!

Could you possibly point me to this information? If there is opportunity to add comment, etc, I would be happy to.
