We Know Everything About Everything

by Modeling Your System

· Blog

We know everything. About everything. Everything there is to know.

About your IT or Cloud System, that is.

How is that possible ?

Our Siglos platform discovers and models your full-stack system, including every part of the infrastructure, OS, services, configurations, options, and more. It literally knows everything about everything. And of course if you’ve not yet built your system, you can use Siglos to design, model, build, and change it, from the bottom up.

How does it do this ?

We use our Siglos Agents, Config Collectors, Cloud Interfaces, and importantly, TOSCA.

What is TOSCA? Yes, it’s an Opera about love in Rome, but it’s also TOSCA, the Topology & Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications, from the OASIS standards body. TOSCA is similar to AWS Cloud Formation, but far more powerful and extensible, partly because it also includes orchestration, relationships, and much more.

We think TOSCA is the way to model cloud infrastructure, and also the applications built on clouds (or even physical servers). TOSCA is fairly complex with several major parts for modeling, relationships, orchestration, and more, but this is exactly what makes is great for our purposes of modeling and managing the world’s IT systems.

In addition, we’ve extended TOSCA to include and drive building and configuration of the rest of the stack, such as Linux OS, Web Servers, MySQL, and everything else. This results in a full model of the entire system, which can then be used for management, modeling, automation, tuning, troubleshooting, and much more.

Our Siglos platform does full-stack system modeling, with Forward, Reverse, and Change engineering of real systems through their whole life-cycle. In particular, we want to know all the pieces and parts, and everything about them, including and especially their relationships. From this we can model their dynamics and dependencies.

With these models you can now visualize, monitor, and understand your system. Then we add automation, alerting based on dependencies, auto-scale, manage, check compliance, drive security, and much more. You can know where everything is, what it’s doing, and where problems are, all the time.

We can add in service-level monitoring, clustering, and real actionable alerting. On top of that, we add tuning and troubleshooting tools including AI-driven rule-engines, cluster analysis, and more, all driven from the model.

The model is your friend.

It knows everything about you, and your system.
