Automate the deployment with zero-touch provisioning

Azion Edge Orchestrator is a programmable and extensible cloud-management and zero-touch provisioning orchestration service purposely built for edge infrastructures and applications.

Zero-touch provisioning is a feature that allows you to automate file and configuration provisioning.

Previously, the deployment of a device and all its access points was a multi-step process that required involvement from multiple professionals. With the introduction of zero-touch provisioning technology, this process has been streamlined, accelerating deployment times and enhancing security.

Basic workflow for using zero-touch provisioning through Azion Edge Orchestrator:

  1. Install the Edge Orchestrator Agent on your device. This device now represents an edge node.
  2. Authorize the node on the Azion platform.
  3. The node is now ready to be provisioned automatically.

Zero-touch provisioning can significantly benefit on-premises nodes in several ways:

  1. Automated provisioning: it allows for the automatic provisioning of configurations, which can significantly reduce the time and effort required to set up each node.

  2. Enhanced security: by eliminating the need for manual configuration, it reduces the risk of human error, which can lead to security vulnerabilities.

  3. Scalability: it makes it easier to scale your network, as new nodes can be added and configured automatically.

  4. Efficiency: it streamlines the deployment process, accelerating deployment times and reducing the need for involvement from multiple professionals.

Zero-touch provisioning can significantly benefit multi-cloud environments:

  1. Automated provisioning: in a multi-cloud environment, managing configurations across different cloud platforms can be complex. It can automate this process, reducing the time and effort required.

  2. Enhanced security: Zero-touch provisioning eliminates the need for manual configuration, reducing the risk of human error and potential security vulnerabilities. This is especially important in a multi-cloud environment where security policies may vary across platforms.

  3. Scalability: Zero-touch provisioning can make it easier to scale your network across multiple cloud platforms, as new nodes can be added and configured automatically.

  4. Efficiency: it can streamline the deployment process across multiple cloud platforms, accelerating deployment times and reducing the need for involvement from multiple professionals.

  5. Consistency: by automating the provisioning process, it can help ensure consistency in configurations across different cloud platforms.

Zero-touch provisioning can be particularly beneficial for IoT (Internet of Things) devices:

  1. Automated provisioning: IoT devices often need to be deployed in large numbers. Zero-touch provisioning can automate the configuration process, significantly reducing the time and effort required.

  2. Scalability: as the number of IoT devices in a network grows, zero-touch provisioning makes it easier to scale, as new devices can be added and configured automatically.

  3. Security: by eliminating the need for manual configuration, zero-touch provisioning reduces the risk of human error, which can lead to security vulnerabilities. This is especially important for IoT devices, which can often be a target for cyber-attacks.

  4. Efficiency: zero-touch provisioning can streamline the deployment process, accelerating deployment times and reducing the need for involvement from multiple professionals.

  5. Consistency: by automating the provisioning process, zero-touch provisioning can help ensure consistency in configurations across a large number of IoT devices.
