Operations

The C3 AI Suite is a comprehensive suite of services mediated through a model-driven architecture. Platform services include data persistence, batch and stream processing, time series normalization, auto-scaling, data encryption, attribute and role-based access control, and AI/ML services.​

Single sign-on​

  • Use any SAML v2.0 compliant identity provider​
  • Leverage two-factor authentication support to meet advanced authentication requirements​
  • Delegate user authentication and authorize third-party applications to access the C3 AI Suite using OAuth 2.0

Role-based access

Attribute & role-based access

  • Leverage the C3 AI Suite’s comprehensive approach for managing access to data, APIs, and infrastructure resources.​
  • Segregate duties within the team and limit user access to resources based on job requirements.​
  • Define expressions to selectively provide or restrict access to application and infrastructure resources.

Auto-scaling

  • Dynamically scale compute capacity up or down according to conditions you define.​
  • Automatically increase the number of compute instances during demand spikes to maintain performance. Decrease capacity during lulls to reduce costs.​
  • Maintain the cost and availability of compute resources and ensure the desired number of compute instances.

Auto-scaling

FPO

Monitoring

  • Monitor all aspects of the C3 AI Suite, from the state of an analytic job to API performance.​
  • Visualize current and historical environment workload using an intuitive environment operations portal.​
  • Monitor the status and throughput of invalidation queues, the mechanism by which the C3 AI Suite handles asynchronous processing requests.​
  • Configure auto-scaling rules to maintain the cost and availability of compute resources.

Logging

  • Track all C3 AI application access, including failed authentication attempts.​
  • Record all successful and unsuccessful access activities in the system and in application logs, along with identity, action, and date/time of access.​
  • Log every data change in the system and in application logs.

End-to-end data security​

  • Provide added data security using enterprise-class encryption.​
  • Encrypt data-at-rest using 256-bit SHA-2 encryption.​
  • Securely transmit data-in-motion using HTTPS (SSL/TLS) with 4096-bit RSA encryption.

Workflow

  • Execute complex tasks asynchronously​
  • Associate workflow invocation to changes to data, user interaction, or a time-based schedule​
  • Monitor end-to-end execution time and status of the overall process as well as the status and execution time of each step
