Orchestrating the Edge and Managing Virtual Assets at Scale

The Cruz Edge Orchestration Solution manages the operating infrastructure software and virtualized functions at today's network edge and distributed compute initiatives. It offers key features address remote technical support and scaling issues that are associated with these solutions

The integrated solution includes CruzControl and Cruz Operations Center (CruzOC). CruzControl is a unified system to manage all aspects of the software lifecycle. It includes image onboarding, version management, dependency policies, compliance validation, backup and restore, instantiation and deployment, planning and scheduling for site and multi-site upgrades. CruzOC delivers expansive IT resource management and operations.

Together, they provide a powerful single console for Day 1 and Day 2 management of today's converging infrastructures and network operations

Solution Highlights

  • Maintain Software Function Library – Onboard, maintain, and automate access to software image library that supports the edge solution lifecycle.
  • Maintain Software Compliance – Integrated tools to discover, backup, monitor, and validate software versions and configurations against corporate standards.
  • Bare Metal Software Management – Manage the initial deployments of BIOS, Operating System, Hypervisor, and designated virtual function software, for un-staged edge installs or as required.
  • Manage Virtual Software Updates – Automate initial deployment or update of individual software, or associated groups of software components.
  • Validate Software Dependencies – Automate and/or manually create software version and configuration dependencies to support automated software updates.
  • Manage External Functions – Support end-to-end orchestration by automating processes to interact/configure software or network functions outside of the edge site. Includes network configuration, SDWAN orchestrators, and connected apps.

  • Create Action Workflows – Multi-step processes to support complex software deployments and dependencies.
  • Create/Schedule Groups Actions – Associate and schedule actions against defined groups of devices across multiple edge or distributed locations.
  • Manage Roll-back Scenarios – Roll-back to back out simple or complex software update actions.
  • Initiate Day 2 Monitoring Support – Upon a success software management update, ensure that appropriate monitoring and support processes are initiated for new capabilities.
  • Coordinate Monitoring and Automation – Integrate with Day 2 monitoring and support processes for continuous software compliance across the edge solution and automated corrective processes are available.
