vCenter Server can be a single point of failure in the environment. Many VMware® solutions, such as VMware Horizon® Suite, VMware vRealize™ Automation™, and so on, are layered on top of vCenter Server; its availability impacts the usability of these components. Loss of vCenter Server curtails the ability of these solutions to perform many critical functions such as making changes and creating new virtual machines (VMs).VMware vCenter comprises multiple components. To provide reliable availability options, an understanding of what these components entail, including dependencies, is required.

VMware | June 29, 2022

VMware, a U.S.-based cloud computing and virtualization technology company, announced the introduction of VMware vSAN+ and VMware vSphere+ to assist organizations in extending hybrid cloud services on-premises, simplifying operations with centralized structures, and increasing developer speed with integrated Kubernetes. Launched as a technology preview named Project Arctic at VMworld 2021, these novel solutions help enterprises bring the benefits of the cloud to their existing on-premises infrastructure by providing a flexible subscription model, access to new hybrid cloud services, and centralized cloud-based infrastructure management. "VMware vSphere+ and VMware vSAN+ represent the next major evolution of those foundational solutions that customers know and trust." He added, "Wherever customers are on their digital transformation journey and in executing their cloud strategy, vSphere+ and vSAN+ will help accelerate their transformation by bringing the benefits of cloud to their existing on-premises infrastructure and workloads, along with simplified consumption via a flexible subscription model." Krish Prasad, senior vice president and general manager for VMware Cloud Platform Business, Cloud Infrastructure Business Group, VMware VMware vSAN+ and VMware vSphere+ are critical parts of the VMware Cloud strategy to provide compatible infrastructure with value-added proficiencies across distributed environments. These solutions allow organizations to activate add-on hybrid cloud services. Gary Chen, IDC Research Director, Software Defined Compute, mentioned, "The transformation of on-premises infrastructure with cloud services is an emerging modernization trend that IDC is seeing draw significant interest from enterprises." He also said, "By enabling the ubiquitous datacenter hypervisor with cloud services, users will be able to onboard innovative capabilities that can be delivered immediately and fully managed from the cloud to address a broad range of pain points such as management efficiency, scale-out Kubernetes operations, and DR. The future possibilities of this delivery model, such as with vSphere+ and vSAN+, are endless and can be a key tool for enterprises to modernize their existing infrastructure quickly with minimal burden." "VMware vSphere+ blurs the line between on-premises and cloud," stated Vishal Gupta, CIO for Lexmark. "The combination of cloud operating model with familiar toolsets will be a big win for us."

XDR Alliance Welcomes New Member VMware

EXABEAM | June 07, 2022

Today, the XDR Alliance welcomed VMware as a new member. This is the alliance's newest cybersecurity innovator to join and proclaim a commitment to an open, inclusive, and collaborative extended detection and response (XDR) architecture. By bringing expertise in endpoint, workload, and network security efficacy, as well as developing threat detection capabilities, VMware expands the alliance's technological reach. Gorka Sadowski, chief strategy officer, Exabeam and founder of the XDR Alliance said that “We are thrilled to add VMware to the XDR Alliance as we continuously work towards improving security for the industry at large. Most of today’s cyber attacks feature advanced tactics such as lateral movement that target legitimate tools to inflict damage. By welcoming VMware to the XDR Alliance, we can utilize its endpoint, workload, and network security expertise to drive the open XDR mission forward and ensure it is addressing these sophisticated threats.” “Carbon Black was one of the earliest pioneers of endpoint detection and response (EDR) which fundamentally transformed security by acknowledging comprehensive telemetry is essential to defending against evolving attacks. XDR expands this concept beyond the endpoint to enable better detection, investigation, and response. Rather than building walled gardens that lock customers in, VMware believes in aligning to how customers buy and use security solutions today to enable a multi-vendor XDR solution that is far better than what any one company or closed partner program can provide.” Jason Rolleston, VP, Product Management, VMware The Charter of the XDR Alliance The XDR Alliance's charter is to define and encourage an open XDR framework and architecture that works best for end users; to assist SecOps teams in better integrating new and evolving applications and technologies; to make it easier for SecOps teams to deliver on the value-add use cases that their organizations need; to ensure interoperability across the XDR security vendor solutions set; and to join forces on XDR market education and awareness. Members of the XDR Alliance represent complementary technologies in security analytics, security information and event management (SIEM), endpoint, email, identity, cloud, network, and OT/IoT security and threat intelligence, and they work together to provide open XDR and threat detection, investigation, and response (TDIR). Managed security service providers (MSSPs), managed detection and response services (MDRs), and systems integrators are also alliance subcategories (SIs). Armis, CyberArk, Exabeam, Expel, ExtraHop, Google Cloud Security, Mimecast, Netskope, Recorded Future, SentinelOne, and VMware are among the founding and new members of the XDR Alliance.
