ControlUp Expands VMware Solution Portfolio to Monitor End User Connectivity

ControlUp | May 13, 2021

ControlUp, a recognized leader in digital experience monitoring and enhancement, unveiled today an extended portfolio to deliver on the promise of a work-from-anywhere digital experience on VMware Horizon virtual desktop environments. New visibility into end-user connectivity provides device managers with the critical data they need to increase user satisfaction and efficiency wherever they operate. "Remote work is no longer the "new normal"; it is simply the norm. This transition in workstyle has presented IT with new obstacles since they must now oversee not only a few offices or divisions, but a plethora of remote work locations "ControlUp's COO and Co-Founder, Yoni Avital, said "Previously, system administrators were unable to detect system failures by taking into consideration local performance concerns. We will now have the details they were missing to optimize the employee digital experience." ControlUp has expanded the VMware Horizon solution portfolio with the following capabilities: • ControlUp Remote DX – provides end-to-end insight into the digital experience of employees, regardless of location, by measuring local network performance, including Wi-Fi intensity and speed, as well as user device ISP connectivity measurements. • ControlUp Scoutbees – continuous synthetic transaction testing that proactively warns IT of problems with the application, desktop, and network resource availability and efficiency. The solution enables The Operations teams to easily locate the origin of any issues and resolve them before user efficiency suffers. • ControlUp SOLVE - visualizes the overall health of the end-user computing (EUC) environment end-to-end in real-time on a single dashboard, with the option to drill down to see accurate measurements for a particular segment of the infrastructure, all the way down to the users' session process level. The ControlUp digital experience monitoring and optimization platform provide Them with flexibility and control by allowing them to track Horizon's virtual desktops and applications, as well as the Horizon infrastructure, whether on-premises or in the cloud. The solution includes pre-built automation and remediation workflows that minimize the time, effort, and expense associated with identifying, troubleshooting, and resolving VDI problems. ControlUp integrates data from the VMware Horizon API to provide deep insight into the entire virtualization stack, including hosts, storage, servers, and user sessions. "Troubleshooting and quick remediation of VDI problems are difficult due to the large number of components involved, from the data center to the cloud to the endpoint," said Bharath Rangarajan, Vice President of Product Management for VMware's End-User Computing business. "VMware and ControlUp are working to solve these issues and regularly provide a great user experience to VMware Horizon customers." About ControlUp ControlUp's Digital Employee Experience management platform provides IT with greater insight and control over employees' digital experiences, regardless of where they work (in the workplace, at home, or on the road) or the type of workspace they use (virtual, physical, or cloud). ControlUp analytics uses anonymized operational metadata from thousands of companies to assist IT and support desk teams in making informed, data-driven decisions. ControlUp is funded by JVP and K1 Investment Management and is headquartered in Silicon Valley with R&D in Israel.

Dahua USA Announces DSS 8.0 Software with Easy User Interface, Enhanced Scalability, and High Performance for Greater ROI.

Dahua Technology Co. LTD | August 26, 2021

Dahua Technology, a world-leading, video-centric, provider of smart IoT solutions, is introducing Version 8.0 of their DSS Video Management Software (VMS) to its North American market. The software upgrade incorporates a smaller file size for the installation package, faster startup time, and an easy-to-deploy secure design. It also boasts high scalability and performance to maximize the investment of DSS users. DSS 8.0 is designed for ease of use, efficiency, and flexibility. Multiple deployment methods allow for more customization: cloud deployment is supported by AWS and virtualization software is supported by VMware. Device access methods are diverse: IP, P2P, DDNS, and Auto-register, giving the user several options for compatibility with third party devices. “Version 8.0 gives users greater control over how they utilize the DSS VMS and lets them easily integrate it with third party devices, while not having to worry about security or user-friendliness,” remarked Damon Chou, solutions product manager for Dahua USA. “It takes a low investment, both in cost and server requirements, to get started with DSS and users can easily scale as they go.” The DSS 8.0 interface is available in more than twenty languages and features a revitalized UI/UE design that is simpler, more responsive, and more colorful. The new application design is based more firmly on actual business cases, which Dahua calls “3 + 2 + 1 + n.” The applications are grouped into modules, with the “n” signifying the capability to include future modules. The first module has three applications: Monitoring Center, which unifies live view and playback; Event Center, which provides an analytics dashboard for real-time and historical events; and DeepXplore. DeepXplore makes target search faster and easier by implementing intelligent retrieval of human and vehicular targets. The second module consists of Access Management, which includes access control, video intercom, visitor management, and attendance management, and Vehicle Entrance and Exit, which manages vehicle ingress and egress through functions such as License Plate Recognition and parking space information. The final module is the Maintenance Center, in a revamped format that is easier to maintain and ensures greater stability. The Maintenance Center gives a visual on the health of the platform, showing the status of equipment, channels, and services, as well as automatically sending reports. For peace of mind, DSS 8.0 was created for application security, privacy, network security, and data security. The storage duration of each video channel can be configured and there is secure encryption on network transmission, storage, download, and export. Three-tier user authority employs hierarchical management to let administrators define different levels of access. Finally, the investment required to implement DSS 8.0 is low and the software is easily upgradable, with purchase-on-demand functionality. DSS Express can support up to 256 channels with licenses; DSS Pro can support up to 2,000 channels per server with a maximum of 20,000 channels with a distributed setup. The improved architecture of DSS 8.0 reduces the load on the server, and cascade expansion allows for a phased investment. This means that the system can be built in stages – and with different DSS models – without dismantling the existing system. Overall, DSS Version 8.0 gives users improved functionality and greater return on their investment, letting them manage their security system with greater confidence and efficiency. About Dahua Technology USA Dahua Technology USA Inc. is a subsidiary of Dahua Technology, which is estimated to be the second largest supplier of video surveillance equipment plus standalone video analytics software, and video surveillance supporting infrastructure to the world

Microsoft Previews Windows 10 Nested Virtualization Using AMD Chips

Microsoft | June 15, 2020

Microsoft this week announced a preview of nested virtualization on Windows 10 machines using AMD processors. Nested virtualization entails running a Hyper-V hypervisor within a Hyper-V-based virtual machine, according to Microsoft's definition in this document. Nested virtualization is the kind of thing that might be used when "testing configurations that ordinarily require several hosts," it added. IT pros might use nested virtualization to create lab environments or to use Hyper-V containers. "If you want to use a Hyper-V Containers inside a VM, you guessed it: this is enabled with Nested Virtualization," Microsoft's announcement indicated.
