The differences between cloud orchestration tools and cloud automation tools is that cloud automation is a task or function that is accomplished without any human intervention whereas cloud orchestration is the process of arranging and coordinating automated tasks, that ultimately results into an improved process or workflow.
Now for setting up a new environment for hosting a new application, IT teams require to orchestrate several automated tasks like to automate the addition of new instances during the time of the auto-scaling event with the help of auto-scaling groups, alarms, etc. The new configuration might also need an installation of automation tools, a configuration of the OS; etc. All of these functions are included under cloud automation processes.
