Blueprint Partners

Our orchestration engine, Blueprints, helps companies spool up complex environments and applications in the CenturyLink Cloud. Design and publish your technology as a CenturyLink Cloud Blueprint, and it can be deployed as a business-ready solution to any other customer on the CenturyLink Cloud worldwide.

A Blueprint can be comprised of any combination of the following elements:

  • Cloud Tasks - service provisioning of servers, storage and networking
  • Software Installation - run any installable software binaries
  • Configuration Scripts - any command-line script that can tune system settings

Server provisioning, OS and software configuration, and application installation can all be scripted into Cloud Blueprints. The orchestration software makes it easy for users to deploy solutions, reducing operational support costs and speeding time to implementation.
