Gigamon, the leading deep observability company, today announced its participation at VMware Explore, VMware’s flagship multi-cloud event being held Aug. 21-24 in Las Vegas. More than 10,000 attendees are expected to attend the conference and can visit Gigamon at booth #319 to learn how GigaVUE Cloud Suite™, a VMware-certified deep observability pipeline, acquires, optimizes, and distributes traffic and network-derived intelligence from any virtual machine or container across leading cloud platforms to monitoring and security tools.
As the complexity of hybrid cloud infrastructure continues to grow and organizations look to get the most out of their cloud investments, the deep observability market is forecasted to grow at a 52 percent CAGR and reach $1.9B by 2027. This growth is supported by the recentGigamon 2023 Hybrid Cloud Security Survey, in which nearly all respondents agree that today cloud security is dependent on gaining visibility across all data-in-motion (96%) and believe that deep observability is an important element of their cloud security (97%).
By visiting Gigamon at booth #319, attendees will gain access to:

Workspot, the intelligent VDI platform built for the multi-cloud era, announced today that Workspot Trends™ is available to its customers. Through this new offering, the company enables organizations to make data-driven decisions that help deliver outstanding performance to end users.
Historically, virtual desktop adoption has been hindered by poor end-user satisfaction. Workspot’s cloud-native VDI platform solves performance problems associated with latency and takes performance monitoring, troubleshooting, and optimization to new levels.
Workspot Trends collects key performance metrics, including direct, in-product, end-user survey results for every session, and user. IT teams can view the summary performance ratings, and begin to drill down into virtual desktop pools that show weaker end-user satisfaction ratings and compare them with pools that have higher ratings. This comparison yields insights into the specific conditions, whether that is CPU or memory usage, network conditions, round-trip time, and more, so IT teams can resolve the issue at the individual or pool level quickly.
Building upon comprehensive observability features inherent in the platform, including continuous collection and real-time analysis of millions of data points across endpoints, gateways, virtual desktop agents, enterprise connectors, and multiple clouds, Workspot Trends adds current and historical end-user satisfaction feedback to its performance analysis algorithm. Through this new solution, IT teams obtain actionable insights into the end-user experience over time.
“There is tremendous value in connecting performance data to the end-user experience,” said Richard Binning, Vice President, Technology at Nelson Worldwide. “With Trends, we’ll be able to have quicker insight into any issues people may be experiencing and resolve them faster. Additionally, our helpdesk and infrastructure teams can leverage these insights to proactively create ideal environments enabling the best possible performance for our teammates.”
“For too long, IT teams have been forced to trade off end-user satisfaction to achieve the security and flexibility benefits virtual desktops can deliver. We believe that understanding the end-user experience is critically important for delivering a working environment that supports maximum productivity and makes end users happy,” said Jimmy Chang, Chief Product Officer at Workspot. “With Workspot Trends, that tradeoff is no longer necessary. IT teams can gain deep visibility into how end users are experiencing their virtual desktops and apps, take action to fine-tune the overall virtual desktop estate, and deliver the best possible performance globally – while achieving the benefits of stronger security and greater business agility.”
Workspot is the only cloud-native, unified VDI platform that delivers enterprise-class virtual desktops and apps from multiple clouds and on-premises data centers to any device. This innovative service lets IT securely stream the right compute capabilities for each end user, to any device, anywhere they want to work. As the only cloud-native VDI solution that operates across all the major public clouds – Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud – as well as on-premises data centers, Workspot is uniquely positioned to address today’s remote work challenges by providing a highly-customizable approach to end-user computing. Enterprises can expect simplicity without compromises as they deploy, manage, and scale their virtual desktop and app estate globally. End users benefit from a seamless work experience - featuring outstanding performance for even the most graphics-intensive workloads - that boosts productivity and overall work satisfaction.

DataBloom AI, a leading provider of virtual data lakehouse solutions, today announced the beta release of Blossom Sky for Google Cloud. The beta release is part of Databloom AI's cooperation with Google for Startups Cloud Program.
Blossom Skyis the first virtual data lakehouse (VDL) on the market. It enables organizations to store, process, and analyze data within multiple data lakes and data warehouses via a single, unified platform. Federated data processing enables customers and users to manage and process their data directly at the source through data pipelines, including low-level data operations like map, join, filter, or map reduce and high-level machine learning operations such as KMeans, SGD or PageRank.
This provides organizations with a number of benefits, including:
Increased Data Scalability and Flexibility: Blossom Sky enables organizations to leverage their existing data infrastructure without centralizing data. This provides organizations with the ability to scale up or down as required.
Reduced Data Duplication and Complexity: Blossom Sky removes the need for expensive Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) and data transfer costs, reducing data duplication and making data management easier for organizations.
Better Data Security and Governance: Blossom Sky brings federated data processing to every organization as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution.
Time to insights (T2I): Blossom Sky brings together data silos in a single data management platform, making it easier for organizations to discover, analyze, and act on data, resulting in faster T2I.
"We are excited to partner with Google Cloud to bring Blossom Sky to market," saidAlexander Alten, CEO of Databloom AI. "Google Cloud's infrastructure and services provide the perfect foundation for our platform, and we believe that this partnership will help us to accelerate our growth and reach more organizations around the world."
Databloom AI, headquartered inMiami, FL, is one of the world's leading virtual data lakehouse providers. Databloom's cloud-based data lakehouse platform allows organizations to consolidate, manage, and analyze data across multiple data lakes or data warehouses in one, single platform.
