Azion Edge Orchestrator is an end-to-end encrypted orchestration service with cloud management and zero-touch provisioning, created for large-scale Edge networks. Manage and control resources on the edge in real time and orchestrate your services quickly and easily to meet your needs.
Getting to know Edge Orchestrator
It allows you to 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.
It was designed to 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.
It can be used with most network architecture, including local and public networks, and also behind NATs.
It is compiled with all required libraries and core dependencies, making software installation and update simpler.
1. How it works
An Azion Edge Orchestrator agent is installed on the edge nodes and provides end-to-end encrypted remote node management from the control panel (Real-Time Manager) based in the cloud and API. It can be deployed in two different ways:
- Through manual installation on each edge node; or
- 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.
2. Edge Orchestrator modules
Azion Edge Orchestrator has the following modules so that you can build a high performance, scalable and secure Edge network, more simply and free of operational tasks.
The Edge Node module enables devices to be created and managed, as well as integration with Azion. You need to install our agent so that we can orchestrate its settings and ensure secure communication between the devices and Azion.
The Edge Services module enables the customer to create their own services. You can use your customized services with Edge and ensure your device is managed and orchestrated by Real-Time Manager.
