Our Secret Sauce Is Open Source

Cloudify is built on open source architecture with a focus on flexibility and scale; model your services once, and then automate entire lifecycles from provisioning to configuration via updating, scaling, and healing.
Using Cloudify, developers and IT departments can finally integrate with any external service (Netconf, Kubernetes...), and natively with all major cloud infrastructures. Cloudify’s orchestration capabilities can model services including infrastructure, middleware, application code, scripts, tool configuration, metrics, and logs. Our technology simplifies orchestration and ensures all services are managed from a single entry point.

The Cloudify Platform

Cloudify’s platform consists of a core engine responsible for the lifecycle management of applications and network services, and a set of plugins providing integration points for all needed components- from infrastructure (Compute, Storage, Network) to logging and monitoring.

Design and Development

Cloudify has been developed to describe any application or network service in a generic, intuitive, human-readable modeling language based on TOSCA standard.

Cloudify Blueprints
The Cloudify journey begins at the blueprint modeling stage- which is an orchestration plan of an application or service. The blueprint enables you to describe the complete service, including topology, lifecycle management, policies, and resources. Cloudify comes with pre-integrated network function blueprints, allowing users to avoid the integration processes needed for automation.
Cloudify Composer
The Composer is a visual editor and design tool that radically simplifies the creation of blueprints. It enables you to drag-and-drop nodes, resources, and other custom items into a graph and quickly connect them to create a TOSCA-based blueprint.

Technologies
Runtime and Deployment

Cloudify runs off an intelligent and declarative engine that automates the entire lifecycle management of application or network services - and can use any cloud or IT Infrastructure.

Orchestration Engine
The engine provides complete lifecycle management of any application or network service- on-boarding, instantiation, day 2 change/ updates, and termination.
Workflow Engine
The engine is policy-driven with several built-in workflows (Heal, Scale, Update, Install...) automating service lifecycle events, designed for fault tolerance and remediation.
Plugins
Cloudify plugins extend functionality to any ‘endpoint’ with a programmable interface (API, Netconf) and to non-programmable devices that are CLI or SSH based. The plugins abstract underlying infrastructure implementation by using TOSCA as the modeling language.

Operations and Management

Cloudify provides intuitive UX and dashboards allowing complete visibility and control over usage, behavior, faults and events of application/ network services.

Policies
Our policies enable users to analyze a stream of events that correspond to a group of nodes. The analysis process occurs in real time and enables actions to be triggered, based on outcome.
Closed Loop Automation
Cloudify has built-in capabilities for closed-loop, 'agentless' monitoring including metrics collection and policy management enabling Cloudify to react to different scenarios based on changes to the state of the service. Administrators can also plug-in their own external metrics and policy engines.
Cloudify Console
The Cloudify Console offers role-based access control, and an intuitive, customizable UI. It enables teams to monitor all deployments from a single access point, managing resources to take actions based on different events.

Cloudify simplifies the automation and management of all on-prem, cloud network, and application resources through its ability to understand your environment, integrate with all tools, and adapt to workload requirements.

Let's talk

The Cloudify Advantage

Federated Network Architecture

Built to support large scale deployments through federated management, Cloudify enables users to meet scale and latency requirements of all edge environments.

Open Edge Architecture

Cloudify combines next generation cloud native services through the management of distributed containers on physical servers or the cloud.

Continuous Transformation

Cloudify delivers cross hybrid cloud and hybrid stack environments all at the speed and quality of change required by today’s enterprises.

Intent-based Orchestration

Cloudify's simplifies complex systems by abstracting applications and networks from the underlying infrastructure, allowing you to focus on a desired state.

Built on TOSCA

Cloudify exists to automate the entire application lifecycle. Developers model their topology once using YAML, and deploy to their infrastructure of choice- this enables users to capture all of the infrastructure resources, software and networking components and services, actions and workflows to perform on that environment with an easy and customizable UI. Based on TOSCA, Cloudify provides end-to-end lifecycle management in a simple application blueprint.

ONAP

The Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) is an initiative created through the combination of AT&T’s ECOMP (Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management & Policy) and Open-O (Open Orchestrator) projects into a single platform to bring the capabilities for designing, creating, orchestrating and handling of the full lifecycle management of Virtual Network Functions, Software Defined Networks, and the services that all of these things entail. Cloudify and ONAP have a long history and a relationship that continues. Cloudify is a founding member of ONAP and continues contributions on several fronts.
