SPEC Releases New SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 Benchmark

Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) | September 18, 2021

The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation’s (SPEC) Virtualization Committee released the SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark, a new multi-host benchmark for measuring the performance of a scaled-out datacenter. The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark uses real-world and simulated workloads to measure the overall efficiency of virtualization solutions and their management environments. The new benchmark complements the existing SPECvirt_sc 2013 server consolidation benchmark, which is designed for a single-host environment. Today’s datacenters use clusters of servers to ensure reliability, availability, serviceability, and security. Adding virtualization to a clustered solution enhances server optimization, flexibility, and application availability while reducing costs through server and datacenter consolidation. While the SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark enables analysis of these more complex multi-host environments, it is much easier to use than the SPECvirt_sc 2013 benchmark, providing a single virtual machine (VM) template to set up its harness and workloads. The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark supports multiple hypervisor vendor solutions and ships with support for RHV 4.x and vSphere 6.x and 7.x. “The ongoing evolution of virtualized environments has made it imperative that suppliers and buyers have a fair, vendor-agnostic tool for measuring the performance of solutions that power virtualized multi-host infrastructures,” said David Schmidt, Chair of the SPEC Virtualization Committee. “The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark is easy to use and creates an excellent foundation for examining and comparing performance in these complex environments that are increasingly becoming the norm.” The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark provides a methodical way to measure a virtualization platform’s performance in a dynamic virtualized datacenter environment. It models typical, modern-day usage of virtualized infrastructure, such as VM resource provisioning, cross-node load balancing (including management operations such as VM migrations), and VM power on/off. The benchmark exercises datacenter operations under load and dynamically provisions new workload VMs from a preconfigured template or powers on existing VMs. As the load reaches maximum capacity of the cluster, hosts are added to the cluster to measure scheduler efficiency and maximize throughput. The SPECvirt Datacenter 2021 benchmark feature overview: Multi-host benchmark – Minimum of four hosts required, scales in increments of four. Datacenter operations model – Multi-workload benchmark measures performance of hypervisor infrastructure, including how the hypervisor manager controls resources. VM resource management – Handled by the hypervisor manager, including scheduling policies. Workload VMs powered on or deployed during benchmark. Ease of use – Single preconfigured template VM to set up harness and workloads. No tuning of guest OS/software necessary. Five real-world and simulated workloads – OLTP database, based on HammerDB benchmark Hadoop/Big Data cluster, based on BigBench benchmark Simulated departmental mail server Simulated departmental web server Simulated departmental collaboration server About SPEC SPEC is a non-profit organization that establishes, maintains, and endorses standardized benchmarks and tools to evaluate performance for the newest generation of computing systems. Its membership comprises more than 120 leading computer hardware and software vendors, educational institutions, research organizations, and government agencies worldwide.

Banyan Security Raises $30M in Growth Financing to Support Increased Demand for Innovative Zero Trust Network Access Platform

Banyan Security | January 24, 2022

Banyan Security, a leading provider of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solutions, announced it has raised $30 million in financing. The Series B funding was led by Third Point Ventures. Additional new investors include SIG and Alter Venture Partners and current investors Shasta Ventures and Unusual Ventures also participated in this round. The latest round brings the total investment in the company to $47 million. This new funding comes on the heels of rapid growth for Banyan in the last year, including the addition of Den Jones, who joined as CSO in early December. The investment will fuel and accelerate the company’s trajectory, enabling further investments in sales and marketing and continued enhancements in product innovation, solidifying Banyan’s position as the best-in-breed zero trust remote access solution. It will also help the company expand into new markets and territories. Curtis McKee, Partner at Third Point Ventures, will join Banyan Security’s Board of Directors. Third Point Ventures is known for successful investments with ground-breaking innovators like SentinelOne, Upstart, and Sysdig. “As an investor across the IT landscape, I’ve looked at several of the up-and-coming remote access vendors who promote ‘zero trust’ and I’m thrilled to partner with Banyan Security, a true market disruptor and innovator,” said Curtis McKee, Partner at Third Point Ventures. “Banyan understands that zero trust is a strategy first and functionality second that, when used properly, serve broader ‘work from anywhere’ business goals. Among Banyan Security’s impressive roster of customers, you’ll find several household names and Fortune 500 organizations, which speaks to their ability to meet the demands of the largest and most demanding enterprise businesses. However, a big part of Banyan’s appeal is the elegance of their incremental ‘deploy-as-you-go’ model which leverages and extends existing security tooling to meet today’s demanding security requirements, and ultimately provides end users with a great experience.” With remote employees everywhere now working from their homes, airports, coffee shops and more, and accessing critical business applications that run across increasingly complex infrastructure, a new set of challenges has emerged for securing this ever-growing and interconnected access surface. Organizations have been increasingly driven to adopt zero trust models to modernize security, as well as handle the stress that the COVID-19 pandemic has put on their people, processes, and technology, especially on legacy VPNs. “With our organization shifting to nearly a fully remote workforce, Banyan’s modern approach to Zero Trust has been a game-changer in improving our overall security,” said Upendra Mardikar, Chief Security Officer at Snap Finance. “The SaaS-based solution was quick to deploy and our security and IT teams are now experiencing time savings and a better user experience. We’re extremely happy with our decision to move to Banyan for our Zero Trust network access needs.” With the rapid shift to remote and hybrid work, traditional network-centric solutions like legacy VPNs are no longer viable options for securing easy-to-use remote access to applications and IaaS resources. At Banyan Security, we strive to help our customers accelerate their zero trust journey by completely reimagining remote access from the user experience and security perspectives, building a comprehensive platform that helps them transform their security models with granular zero trust policy controls. This latest funding reinforces the urgent need for advanced remote access solutions that make effective use of zero trust technology, and our team is looking forward to expanding our market footprint to help meet that demand.” Jayanth Gummaraju, CEO and Co-Founder of Banyan Security Banyan Security provides least-privileged access to corporate applications and IaaS resources in real-time, leveraging organizations’ existing enterprise identity and security tool investments. Built on a patented zero trust architecture, the Banyan solution transparently deploys in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, continuously enforcing access policies based on any combination of user, device, and application contexts. In fact, Banyan has the only architecture that leverages and integrates with existing IT and cloud investments while permitting incremental deployment that truly accelerates measurable progress on the zero trust journey. Additionally, with the recent availability of Team Edition, a no-cost version of the company’s powerful Banyan Security Zero Trust Remote Access solution, organizations are provided with one-click, zero trust access to hosted applications, services, and infrastructure without the need for legacy VPNs, opening inbound firewall ports, or managing DNS changes.
