Introducing the 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 API for environmental data

Synse provides a universal mechanism for monitoring and controlling all of the Operational Technology (OT) devices in a data center, from cooling systems to generators. Every Kinetic Edge data center has one or more Synse server instances which monitor environmental data, making it actionable by applications operating at the Kinetic Edge. As a fully open source API, you can use Synse anywhere from the enterprise to the regional data center the same way. Synse enables you to build 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 edge-native applications

Developers building edge-native applications or services can use Synse data to make orchestration and workload placement decisions. For example, an application can monitor real time loading and infrastructure health in each Kinetic Edge location 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.
