Symcloud Orchestrator

Bare-metal-to-service orchestration with massivescale using closed-loop automation - day 0/1/2 lifecycle management

Symcloud Orchestrator's hyperautomation orchestrates and manages the lifecycles of your bare-metal infra, 3rd party appliances, Virtual Network Functions (NVFs), Cloud-Native Network Functions (CNFs) and service chains, with built-in logging, monitoring and policy engine, for closed loop automation that is managed through a single pane of glass. All of this is driven by an intuitive, context-aware and easy-to-use work-flow manager.

Symcloud Orchestrator provides 1-click application & Network Function (NF) onboarding, pulled from a large, pre-integrated, vendor ecosystem encompassing telco, cloud and enterprise applications. Ingest any scripting, such as helm charts, to automate Methods Of Procedures (MOPs), orchestrating any network element, application or process.

Our customers now do in minutes, what took days and weeks in the past, by integrating multiple layers of orchestration and workflows into a single platform - ideal for rapid scale-out of 5G, Open RAN and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) applications, such as Content Delivery Network (CDN) streaming, gaming and more.

  • First in-production containerized 5G stack with millions of subscribers - full stack deployment and in-service Open RAN
  • 40% reduction in opex scalable orchestration and automation for RAN and Core
  • 50% reduction in capex by enabling Open RAN and Core on commercial hardware
  • Reduced deployment times - from weeks to minutes
  • When combined with Symcloud Platform - 30% faster when running VNFs and 3x faster storage performance


Full stack orchestration & lifecycle management - bare metal to service orchestration

Manages lifecycles and turn-up of your HW infrastructure, cloud platform, NFs, supporting applications and services, on one platform. This includes remote turn-up of completely bare servers.

Orchestration simplification and agility

Remove orchestration and MOPs silos with a single, unified engine for the entire stack, with access to all of the workflows, packaged with an easy-to-use interface utilizing programmable, context-aware and reusable elements simultaneously across the entire landscape. Combine multiple layers of orchestration and MOPs into single, 1-click, workflows.

Harmonized container and virtual machine (VM) support

You are no longer tied to your vendor’s containerization roadmap, licensing or support contracts. Realize sharable resource pools today. Deploy CNFs and VNFs on the same or separate high availability clusters, reusing and sharing resources.

Applicable to any network element or application

No vendor or technology lock-ins. Configuration management support for not only compute/storage/ network infrastructure, but also proprietary 3rd party equipment including top of rack switches, 5G radio, security, content delivery appliances and other Physical Network Functions (PNFs).

New paradigm in monitoring that reduces outages

Go beyond simple lists, logs and utilization graphs. Our clusters and the policies they enforce are application-aware, calculating placement based on detailed resource policy models with topology awareness, affinity/anti-affinity rules and service composition, to name just a few. Symcloud Orchestrator's multicluster, multi-data-center monitoring and policy engine drives workload scaling, healing and migration anywhere in any cloud. It intuitively relates the dependencies and how they impact services. This enables the operator to better understand the system as a whole and make more informed decisions. For example, service impacts due to the addition of new service types, server migrations, OS upgrades, security patches, database rebuilds, etc., These capabilities help the operator plan quicker, easier, and with better confidence, reducing service-impacting events and human error.

Unified Day 0/1/2 Lifecycle Management

Quickly combine any of these lifecycle management domains into a 1-click, operation

Advanced Inventory & Service Management

Our inventory management goes beyond comprehensive dashboards for health/usage/alarms and focuses on dependencies. Symcloud Orchestrator's multi-cluster monitoring and closed-loop automated policy engine intuitively relates those layers of dependencies and how they impact services. Drill down into a flagged cluster, or hardware nodes and see the impacted services and exactly what elements have failed or degraded. Perform blast-radius analyses to model the impact of any device, node or process.

  • Action center: Visualize multi-data center, multi-cluster resource-aware dependencies
  • Fault domain detection and blast radius service impact mapping
  • Data drilldown
  • Service-mesh and resource visibility mesh

Bare-Metal Lifecycle Management

Manage your HW hardware infrastructure with numerous, intent-driven and contextually aware checks that guide your exacting declarations. Transform a bare server, without configuration or an operating system via a remote Baseband Management Controller (BMC) Ethernet or Serial connection.

  • Verify, install, upgrade, patch and configure the OS
  • Supports many Intel and AMD-based vendors and SKUs including HP, SuperMicro, Quanta Cloud Technologies (QCT) and Dell
