Orchestrates complex edge infrastructure, applications, and network services
Supports multi-cloud (agnostic) strategies connecting the edge to public clouds
SaaS offering simplifies management from a single pane of glass
Aarna Networks brings years of experience in orchestration to bear by creating a SaaS version of its Aarna Networks Multi Cluster Orchestration Platform (AMCOP) software with Aarna Edge Services (AES). AES is a zero-touch SaaS platform for designing, orchestrating, monitoring, and managing infrastructure, network services, and applications at the cloud edge in tandem with public cloud services. AES empowers users with ongoing lifecycle management, ongoing optimization, and service assurance.
AES solves the complexity of edge orchestration while supporting multi-cloud use cases across the edge and public clouds — all with user-friendly management from a single pane of glass. In a typical configuration, AES slashes 2 - 26 weeks of manual labor (depending on the use case) to less than an hour.
The first release of AES simplifies the orchestration of Equinix’s three digital services – Equinix Metal, Equinix Network Edge and Equinix Fabric along with public cloud resources such as Azure ExpressRoute, AWS Direct Connect, and more.
Four market trends are converging to drive growth at the cloud edge for enterprise and CSP customers and necessitate a solution like Aarna Edge Services.
Management plane complexity means that existing management solutions are no longer sufficient.
AES supports a wide variety of use cases including the following:
AES meets specific enterprise requirements for private networks.
"We’re excited to collaborate with Aarna. The collaboration delivers a virtual cloud by Aarna allowing orchestration of edge software from a single point and AnyLog virtualization that facilitates queries of distributed data as if the data is hosted in a centralized database. Edge projects are seeking technologies to drive efficiencies, allow immediate go to market, improve security and open new revenue streams."

"Extreme automation and a zero-touch orchestration framework critical to any significant edge
roll-out. A combined approach to managing computing and connectivity resources like what Aarna is doing with AES can help drive edge uptake.”
"Equinix has been leading the Linux Foundation Edge Akraino Public Cloud Edge Interface (PCEI) open-source blueprint to drive collaboration on common interfaces for the infrastructure orchestration and application deployment at cloud edge. The blueprint is in its fourth release and has won the first prize in the recent ETSI and LF Edge MEC Hackathon. I am delighted to see that Aarna Networks is commercializing the blueprint, leveraging Equinix digital services to enable DevOps driven infrastructure orchestration for the edge."

"As the demand for applications that take advantage of modern networking technologies like 5G grows it has become increasingly critical to make the management and operation of Edge infrastructure simpler. AES reduces the complexity, and provides more intuitive tools for operators so that they can better serve application developers and ensure visibility of the entire infrastructure."

“Automating the deployment of the picoNETS picoCDN across a massive scale of cloud edge locations will make it easier for customers to deploy our application at the right location and the right time.”
“Red Hat OpenShift offers a powerful cloud-native platform for network operations and 5G capabilities based on a standard open source foundation. We are pleased to collaborate with Aarna Networks to validate cloud-native functions for AMCOP and future iterations of AES to continue to support operators in fueling 5G networks at scale on Red Hat OpenShift.”
