Introducing Synse

Put the world in context with Synse

The open source API for making environmental data actionable in the data center

Data. Driven.

The universal Platform for observability

Synse provides a universal mechanism for monitoring all of the Operational Technology (OT) devices that comprise the Kinetic Grid platform, from cooling systems and generators to network status and congestion. Synse server instances collect real-time environmental data and deliver it to customers of the Kinetic Grid, making it possible to develop resonsive and predictive systems to maintain SLAs. Synse enables autonomous infrastructure and applications from edge to core.
100% Open Source​

No licensing fees and freely available source code make Synse easy to adopt. Join the open source community to collaborate on enhancements, bug fixes and new plugins.

Infinitely Flexible

Built to support an infinite variety of plugins, Synse integrates with both new and legacy devices. A freely-available SDK makes plugin authoring a breeze.

Remote Monitoring

Use Synse to remotely monitor sensors and equipment in data centers. Designed to scale to thousands of devices and locations, Synse is ideal for operating at the Kinetic Edge.

Remote Operation

Synse provides for plugins that support command and control capabilities. Common commands include rebooting a device or configuring an operating mode based on environmental cues.

Native Applications

Intelligent grid-native applications

Developers building grid-native applications or services can use Synse data to make orchestration and workload placement decisions. For example, an application can monitor real-time network congestion and infrastructure health across the Kinetic Grid and use this data to make workload placement and migration decisions that optimize for real-world, real-time conditions.

Remote Monitoring and Operations

By deploying a Synse server, installing the proper plugins and connecting to your sensors and equipment you get a complete, real-time view of all your OT data with the ability to control your equipment remotely. Synse can be operated standalone or it can be integrated with existing DCIM standards, such as IPMI and SNMP.

Growing library of Plugins

The Synse community has already developed plugins for popular equipment standards, including SNMP, IPMI, Modbus TCP/IP, and Intel AMT. New plugins are easily built using the Synse SDK, and the community is working to build out dozens of popular integrations.
