Cruz Archictecture

Automation Framework can initiate any system operation, like script-execution, configuration back-ups and or restorations in response to any event.

Built upon a componentized device driver architecture. Device Drivers provide standardized application support protocols and configurations. By simply installing a new device driver, Cruz can manage additional network elements without needing to upgrade any applications. In addition, you can easily create your own device drivers with the Device Driver SDK for those vendors where a driver is not currently available.

Features a graphical user interface based upon standard web portal technologies. This allows for a highly customizable user experience to satisfy customer specific operational procedures, all within a multi-tenant environment.
