Companies Rethink Strategies for Enabling Hybrid Work

Citrix | August 05, 2022

Forced by the pandemic to provide employees with access to the systems and information they needed to work from home, IT organizations around the world turned to traditional technologies like Virtual Private Networks (VPN). And they worked. But as the world moves to hybrid work, 96 percent of IT leaders who participated in a recent global survey conducted by Gartner Peer Insights on behalf of Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS), say they no longer cut it. And they’re rethinking their approach. A Seismic Change Hybrid models have radically changed where and how work gets done – and even who does it. Of the organizations who participated in the Citrix poll: 96 percent have a hybrid work policy or allow both fully remote and hybrid work 85 percent say their workforce is more geographically dispersed than it was two years ago 75 percent have seen an increase in the number of seasonal, contract, or freelance workers A Major Miss When it comes to supporting these changes, respondents say the solutions they put in place to enable remote work fall short in the following areas: Fail to protect against additional security risks posed by employees working from anywhere (96 percent) Create a digital divide between in-office and remote employees (63 percent) Don’t provide a consistent user experience (46 percent) Hinder efficient collaboration among distributed employees (46 percent) Don’t support bring-your-own-device initiatives (33 percent) Difficult to scale and manage (25 percent) A Strategic Shift And they are increasing their investments in technologies that allow them to provide a simpler, more consistent and secure experience for employees regardless of where they work, including: Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) (69 percent) Virtual apps and desktops (56 percent) Desktops as a Service (DaaS) (42 percent) Zero trust network access (34 percent) A Layered Approach VPN remains the most popular solution to support remote work. But as the Citrix research reveals, it’s not enough to enable safe and productive hybrid work on its own. According to the poll, 87 percent of respondents using VPN have implemented at least one other solution to close the gaps, including: VDI (69 percent) Virtual Apps and Desktops (49 percent) DaaS (39 percent) Desired Results And in doing so, they’re achieving their goal. When asked to identify the top three benefits their hybrid work solutions provide, participants in the Citrix poll said they: Provide layered protection for all devices on the network, including unmanaged and BYOD Create an equitable work experience by providing employees with consistent and reliable access to applications and data regardless of where they are working Provide layered protection and consistent security management for all applications “Hybrid work is the future of work, Innovative organizations recognize this and are reimagining the solutions used to support it so they can deliver it today.” Tim Minahan, Executive Vice President of Strategy, Citrix Citrix provides a complete digital workspace platform that companies of all sizes can use to enable secure work. With Citrix, employees can work where and how they prefer, and IT can be confident their information and devices remain safe.

ExpressVPN Exits India in Light of New Anti-privacy Rules

ExpressVPN | June 27, 2022

ExpressVPN confirmed the withdrawal of its Indian-based VPN servers in light of the new VPN directives implemented. “With a recent data law introduced in India requiring all VPN providers to store user information for at least five years, ExpressVPN has made the very straightforward decision to remove our Indian-based VPN servers. We refuse to ever put our users’ data at risk," Harold Li, vice President, ExpressVPN “It is our policy to never allow logging, and we have also specifically designed our VPN servers to not be able to log, including by running in RAM. Data centers are unlikely to be able to accommodate this policy and our server architecture under this new regulation, and thus there is no path forward other than to no longer have physical VPN servers in India," he added. He further stated, “As a company focused on protecting privacy and freedom of expression online, ExpressVPN will continue to fight to keep users connected to the open and free internet with privacy and security, no matter where they are located. This issue is new nor unique in the current geopolitical landscape, so we have been able to move quickly and adjust our infrastructure to maintain the integrity of our VPN services.” ExpressVPN offers two virtual server locations in India for those who still want to connect to VPN sites in India: India (via Singapore) and India (via UK).

Vultr Talon Cloud Virtualization Provider Now Available on Beta

Vultr | May 27, 2022

Vultr, a leading independent cloud infrastructure provider, announced today that Vultr Talon, powered by NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, is currently in beta. Vultr Talon, a ground-breaking cloud-based platform, enables GPU sharing, allowing several workloads to execute effectively on a single NVIDIA GPU. Vultr is the first cloud service to provide GPU sharing by virtualizing NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs. Vultr is launching a set of virtual machine (VM) packages incorporating the NVIDIA A100 today, with prices beginning at $90 per month, or $0.13 per hour. Breakthrough Cloud Platform Enabling AI Workloads at a Fraction of the Cost Vultr Talon is powered by a cutting-edge NVIDIA GPU virtualization technology based on NVIDIA's vGPU software. Rather than connecting whole real GPUs to VMs, Vultr adds just a portion in the form of a virtual GPU (vGPU). The NVIDIA AI Enterprise software package, which incorporates NVIDIA vGPU software and is geared for remotely performing AI workloads and high-performance data analytics, powers these vGPUs. A vGPU appears to a customer's system just like an actual GPU. Each vGPU has its own devoted memory, which is a fraction of the memory on the underlying card. The vGPU has access to a fraction of the computing capacity of the actual GPU. NVIDIA's Multi-Instance GPU (MIG) technology is utilized for Vultr plans with at least 10GB of GPU RAM to give tenants with assured QoS, completely isolated GPU high-bandwidth memory cache, and dedicated compute cores. High-end GPUs can cost hundreds of dollars per month to rent. While this cost is often justified for the most demanding corporate workloads, for many enterprises and developers, the cost of even a single GPU might be prohibitive to getting started, experimenting, or running apps in development and testing environments. Even organizations with large IT budgets may wind up losing money by supplying more GPU capacity than required or just electing not to use GPUs at all. At Vultr, we pride ourselves on making high-performance cloud infrastructure affordable for everyone. With Vultr Talon, we have turned the GPU delivery model upside down. Because of our breakthrough cloud platform, AI developers and data scientists can provision exactly as much NVIDIA GPU processing as they actually need, at prices they can afford.” J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company,
