iland Catalyst adds features to streamline VMware migration
iland, a provider of secure application and data protection cloud services built on VMware technology, has announced upgrades to iland Catalyst, a complementary cloud assessment tool that simplifies the journey to the cloud. The new Catalyst features make it easier for organisations using VMware to model and right size cloud requirements for cloud backup, disaster recovery or migration without costly over-provisioning or detrimentally under-provisioning. As more organisations migrate from traditional data centres to cloud-based infrastructures, they must optimise costs by accurately predicting the right amount of cloud resources needed based on the size and frequency at which an application is used. They must also determine if workloads are compatible with cloud services. These factors are often miscalculated throughout the cloud journey, resulting in resources often being over or under-provisioned.

Dell Releases Two Servers for HPC and AI with an Updated VMware Virtualization Software

Dell | June 12, 2020

Designed with the GPU and virtualization in mind, new Dell servers are meant for quick deployment of artificial intelligence and high-performance computing systems. First up is the Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI: GPU-as-a-Service. Yes, that is its full title. This server offers virtual GPU pools by leveraging VMware vSphere 7 with Bitfusion. The second new server is the Dell EMC Ready Solutions for Virtualized HPC. It also uses vSphere 7 and Bitfusion, and for very large HPC implementations. Dell Technologies launched two servers for high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) that include an updated version of VMware's virtualization software and are available through Dell's On Demand flexible consumption model. First up is the Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI: GPU-as-a-Service. Yes, that is its full title. This server offers virtual GPU pools by leveraging VMware vSphere 7 with Bitfusion. Bitfusion is a hardware virtualization technology VMware acquired last year. The new Ampere architecture from Nvidia supports GPU partitioning but the older generations did not, which is where Bitfusion comes in.

The Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI: GPU-as-a-Service also uses the latest VMware Cloud Foundation hybrid cloud platform with vSphere 7 to support Kubernetes and other containerized applications. The second new server is the Dell EMC Ready Solutions for Virtualized HPC. It also uses vSphere 7 and Bitfusion, and for very large HPC implementations, Dell provides an option to include VMware vSphere Scale-Out Edition for additional cost savings. By virtualizing HPC and AI operations with VMware, IT teams can quickly provision hardware as needed, speed up initial deployment and configuration, and save time with simpler centralized management and security. Dell cites research from Forrester Consulting that claims its Ready Solutions for HPC can deliver up to 18 times faster AI model development, reducing the time from months to days, Dell Technologies. Both servers come with an updated version of the Dell EMC OpenManage systems management software, to help AI and advanced computing administrators improve system uptime, keep data insights flowing and prepare for AI-enabled operations. OpenManage is integrated with VMware vCenter, supporting vSphere Lifecycle Manager, and automates software, driver and firmware updates in a simplified manner. The enhanced OpenManage Mobile app lets administrators view power and thermal policies, perform emergency power reduction and monitor internal storage from a mobile device.

RevBits Zero Trust Network Strengthens Network Security and Protects Digital Assets

RevBits | October 05, 2021

RevBits, a software provider for a complete 360-degree cyber defense, today announced availability of RevBits Zero Trust Network (ZTN). RevBits ZTN is a thin-client application providing authenticated access for remote users and devices to applications, services and data, with comprehensive network security. The remote workforce and third-party access are elevating the security risk for business. Moving network protection to endpoints, RevBits ZTN isolates and protects internal assets, without implementing complicated network segmentation. Supporting a default no-trust security posture, RevBits ZTN provides in-transit data security through encryption, secure access to applications and services, and network security through user and device authentication. "As enterprise threat levels rise, rethinking cybersecurity and perimeter control is paramount. It is no longer a matter of ensuring data encryption for remote users through a VPN as a complement for network security; organizations must adopt a default no-trust posture." said David Schiffer, CEO at RevBits. Building upon its technological innovation in the access management marketplace, through the award-winning RevBits Privileged Access Management (PAM), RevBits ZTN expands access management and control to the individual user level, with unified visibility and analytics, from a single vendor. Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have been the main security tool for remote access. However, VPN protection stops at the network perimeter, leaving the internal network vulnerable. VPN provides a level of protection by encrypting data in transit and a layer of obfuscation. However, it doesn't authenticate users or their devices, leaving the network open to attackers if VPN credentials are stolen. RevBits ZTN provides data security with encryption and granular access control to digital assets, by authenticating all users and devices. "Based on our unique architecture and patent-pending technologies, RevBits ZTN provides best in class protection," said Mucteba Celik, CTO at RevBits. "By combining the principles from our PAM solution, RevBits ZTN delivers data encryption, comprehensive obfuscation, granular user and machine access control, and monitoring to protect digital infrastructure." RevBits ZTN feature highlights Proxy servers located in 24 globally distributed cloud regions for fast, secure connections and automatic scaling. Multiple options for user authentication, including fingerprint, facial recognition, YubiKey, SAML, MFA and others. Control every aspect of a remote session, including monitoring, reviewing, recording and killing sessions with one click. About RevBits RevBits delivers new levels of security IQ through context-rich behavioral analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning. RevBits Cyber Intelligence Platform (CIP) is a unified security platform that integrates a best-in-class suite of Detection and Response, Privileged Access Management, Email Security, Deception Technology, and Zero Trust Network solutions. RevBits empower security operations with a complete cyber defense; encrypting, authenticating, authorizing, and intelligently analyzing layered context-rich security data across the security stack. RevBits dashboard unifies cross-functional security presenting an intuitive 360-degree view. Taking cybersecurity to the next level, RevBits is innovating new capabilities, with multiple patented technologies to ensure enterprises have a security advantage.
