Deploy & Operate Globally Distributed Apps

A SaaS-based offering that automates deployment, security and
operations of distributed apps and infrastructure across
multi-cloud or edge


Cloud-native software stack for
managing distributed workloads


  • Cost and Complexity

    Heterogeneous infrastructure with different tooling and operations across cloud and edge raises complexity and cost

  • Scalability Challenges

    Manual workflows and application orchestration across large number of distributed sites makes it difficult to scale

  • Slow Time-to-Service

    Deployment and lifecycle management of applications on independent infrastructure nodes impedes service velocity

  • Higher Risk

    Disjointed identity, lack of end-to-end security, and incomplete visibility creates blind spots and increases risk


  • Cost Optimized and Lower Complexity

    Consistent platform with SaaS based operations across heterogeneous infrastructure reduces complexity and cost

  • Seamless Scalability

    Globally distributed control plane with resource orchestration across a fleet of distributed clusters enables massive scale

  • Rapid Service Delivery

    SaaS-based deployment and lifecycle management across the fleet with centralized intent and policy increases agility

  • Reduced Risk

    Uniform identity, zero trust security, centralized observability, continuous verification removes blind spots and reduces risk
