EZ VPN Inc. Launches the First Cloud Remote Access VPN Service

EZ VPN | October 22, 2020

As we begin to shift towards a growing remote workforce, there is much to consider regarding the accessibility of corporate network devices from home. Following such demands would require a Virtual Private Network - a network that permits access to data, resources, and information through a remote site. As this often would require IT personnel to configure, the results are costly and complicated for companies to pursue. Establishing a connection that is both simple and secure is the solution that businesses are in desperate need of. Fortunately, a solution has been developed from those at EZ VPN Inc. who recently launched the first cloud remote access VPN service.

VMware Introduces Delivery of Elastic Infrastructure for AI/ML Applications with VMware vSphere 7

VMware | June 22, 2020

VMware, Inc. introduced a new integrated feature in VMware vSphere 7 that will enable enterprises to deliver elastic infrastructure on-demand for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications. This new feature—VMware vSphere Bitfusion—is developed out of VMware’s 2019 acquisition of Bitfusion, a pioneer in the virtualization of hardware accelerator resources including graphics processing unit (GPU) technology. Organizations use hardware accelerators such as GPUs to dramatically improve the performance of AI/ML workloads that may run several hours or longer. IT teams have come to realize that these hardware accelerators are isolated islands—unable to be shared across many parts of the business. The inability to share those resources leads to inefficient and poor utilization of both existing and newly purchased resources. The combination of Bitfusion and VMware vSphere will help organizations achieve cost savings, enable resource sharing out of the box, and deliver the right hardware accelerator resource, like a GPU, to the right workload at the right time.
