A platform for next generation IoT applications
What is Pantacor?
Built from industry insights and customer requirements, Pantacor combines modern DevOps best practices with embedded-first technologies to help any product maker add tangible value to the smart device edge. Open source and without vendor lock-in, the Pantacor platform connects, manages, and monitors the full lifecycle of firmware and applications at scale for smart edge devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Turn any Linux-enabled device whether that’s home WiFi routers or industrial control systems into a software-defined connected IoT. Pantacor implements containers and other open source cloud native technologies that operate alongside your existing Linux embedded infrastructure.
Organizations can take advantage of Pantacor to enable a faster and easier method of deploying containerized applications, managing firmware and gathering real-time data from edge devices.
How does it work?
The platform consists of three core components: Pantavisor, Hub, and Fleet. The critical building block is Pantavisor, the open source component container manager. Pantavisor is the container-based init system that turns your static fixed-function Linux device into a multi-functional software defined device by controlling the full lifecycle of the device’s firmware and applications. The lightweight Pantavisor agent manages the base OS, and can also extend the device’s feature set with containerized applications and services.
Centralized device management and observability at the edge
Pantacor Hub and Fleet are the management, security, monitoring and observability layers of the platform, providing a single dashboard and UI for the remote maintenance of your entire device fleet. Both are cloud-native-ready that can be used as a SaaS on Pantacor’s hosted infrastructure, or deployed in-house and integrated with your enterprise-level applications and any other open source cloud native tools.
Hub is our solution for remote device management. Control the lifecycle of your device’s firmware and software through simple unified APIs, provided by our cloud-native scalable cloud services. All Pantavisor-enabled devices seamlessly connect to your Hub instance for plug and play monitoring, observability and software management experience.
Integrate Hub through it’s controller APIs with any higher level management plane solution that your business might already have. If your organization already uses existing fleet management and orchestration solutions to manage software rollouts, spot service delivery and the like, then you can use Pantacor Hub to interface between your third-party management control plane and all Pantavisor-enabled devices.
If you don’t have an existing management control plane in place that can leverage the Pantacor Hub API for lifecycle management, then Fleet can provide that. Available as a SaaS, Fleet adds a layer of orchestration on top of Hub’s Basic APIs. It lets you partition your device deployments according to logical groups, enabling your operations teams to continuously deliver updates and rollouts with fine-grained control to the IoT.
Observe, analyze and make decisions at scale with Pantacor Fleet’s automated data ingestors and aggregators. Pantacor Fleet APIs manage all device data including global logs, system level and device telemetry, metrics and other application data. In addition to integrating with popular cloud native tools like Kubernetes, Elastic, Prometheus and Grafana Labs, you can also integrate with other enterprise 3rd party IoT applications from the public clouds or with your own custom in-house solutions.
Release faster, and more efficiently with DevOps best practices. Because software and firmware deployments are containerized and automated, they can be rolled out with fewer steps and less overhead, resulting in a quicker turnaround of new features and services for customers.
Remote continuous IoT delivery
Containers make it simple for developers to implement modern software patterns like microservices and other cloud native architectures for code reuse. Continuously deliver new services and applications to increase the functionality of your IoT device network.
Increased monetization opportunities
Extend your device fleet functionality, transform the far edge to a smart edge and increase revenue opportunities by deploying new applications and services to end-users without having to replace the OS or hardware.
Reduced operational cost
Manage fleets of devices from a single dashboard. Maintain, secure and update groups of devices based on OS, hardware type, and application type. Aggregate, analyze and make decisions from device logs using your choice of cloud native observability and real-time analytical solutions.
Easily integrate with Pantacor’s API and use with any of the popular cloud native and open source tools like Kubernetes, Prometheus and Grafana for monitoring, observability and analytics for real-time decision making.
Highly scalable, Pantavisor allows you to connect and remotely manage millions of edge devices on IoT networks.
