Dimensigon (“DM”) is an open-source python-based technology designed to coordinate or orchestrate complex inter-server automation regardless if the servers can directly reach each other or not.
DM can act as some combination of the following functionalities:
- Coordination of inter-server operations
- Standalone Automation
- Distributed Management of servers
The bet for decentralization comes from the reality in companies for creating silos, verticals, or microservices with multiple subnets or network separation. Through decentralization, DM aims to solve the connectivity problem and creates a mesh network that can help teams or each application vertical to perform event-triggered orchestrations in any number of servers.
Thanks to DM, users in each vertical can preserve the value created with their current automation technology and embed it to Dimensigon to integrate with other tools at the company-level.
Dimensigon can be used not only for automation but for driving company-wide operations such as Auditing, Log Federation (a topic we will cover later on), for compliance or Governance.
