Azion Edge Orchestrator is an end-to-end encrypted orchestration service with cloud management and zero-touch provisioning, created for large-scale edge networks. You can manage and control resources on the edge in real time, as well as orchestrate your services quickly and easily to meet your needs.
With Edge Orchestrator, you can:
Manage and control edge resources in real time, including provisioning, updating, and managing edge applications, edge firewalls, edge functions, digital certificates, edge nodes, edge services, and third-party services via Marketplace.
Operate and run on different types of architecture: microprocessors, like x86 and ARM, and different sizes of equipment, including Raspberry PI, network equipment such as switches and SD-WAN routers, as well as corporate servers, because it was designed for it.
Use it with most network architecture, including local and public networks, and also behind NATs.
Simplify software installation and upgrading, since it’s compiled with all core and library dependencies.

Azion Edge Orchestrator agentSection titled Azion Edge Orchestrator agent
An Azion Edge Orchestrator agent is installed on the edge nodes and provides end-to-end encrypted remote node management from Real-Time Manager.
It can be deployed through:
- Manual installation on each edge node.
- Automatic installation along with the operating system: a Linux distro or the image of a client’s OS or hardware supplier. For example: an SD-WAN router, a network switch, or a Linux server. Customers can use an automatic registration mode, which makes it simpler to deploy (for example: new node locations or using automatic node scaling), update, and manage a large number of scaling edge nodes.
All services linked to edge nodes will be orchestrated and configured from the moment the device is authorized via the control panel.
The orchestration is done sequentially and respects the dependencies between resources and triggers needed for its configuration.

Edge NodeSection titled Edge Node
Edge Node enables the creation and management of devices, as well as integration with Azion. You need to install our agent so that the Azion platform can orchestrate its settings and ensure secure communication between the devices and Azion.
Edge ServicesSection titled Edge Services
Edge Services enables you to create your own services. You can use your customized services and ensure your device is managed and orchestrated by Real-Time Manager.
