Tufin Provides End-to-End Automation for VMware NSX-T Data Center
Tufin a company pioneering a policy-centric approach to security and IT operations, today announced end-to-end Zero Touch Automation for the VMware NSX-T Data Center in the Tufin Orchestration Suite. The new integration enables VMware customers moving from NSX-V to NSX-T to leverage Tufin to implement security policy changes in minutes instead of days, more securely and accurately across their hybrid IT environments. Tufin’s support for NSX-V has been important for customers looking for a single pane of glass that provides visibility and control across the SDN, on-premises networks and the public cloud, while enabling a more secure, manageable and continuously compliant hybrid network,” said Teri Bruns, vice president, Global Partner Solutions at VMware. “Now organizations are looking for those same benefits as they deploy cloud-native applications, and Tufin’s support of NSX-T will help deliver them.

Enterprises in the service industry are now widely cognisant of the applicability of robotic process automation (RPA) techniques to achieve significant productivity gains while being cost conscious. RPA’s ability to reduce processing time and errors, enhance scalability and compliance, and enable staff to focus on value-adding activities rather than repetitive tasks has been vindicated across industries and is now widely accepted. Firms which embraced these automation techniques early in the game have been able to gain significant benefits.

Orchid’s decentralized VPN will price bandwidth using Chainlink

Orchid | June 16, 2020

Chainlink is making it easier to get onboard with decentralized VPNs. Orchid announced today the launch of a new pricing oracle to help users understand the dollar denominated cost of purchasing bandwidth on the Orchid decentralized VPN. A VPN allows users to connect to the Internet using a connection provided in a different physical location. It’s another example of the versatility of the Chainlink protocol, and shows how the decentralized oracle platform can be applied to a variety of different use cases.

Scale Computing Launches First of a New Class of HC3 Appliances for Databases & Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Scale Computing | May 13, 2020

The HC3250DF, a new class of HC3 appliances designed to enhance support for performance-intensive use cases such as database analytics and high density Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployments. Scale Computing hits the mark with this latest addition to its core HC3 virtualization system. Its NVMe storage architecture requires no manual configuration and consumes less system RAM, resulting in more RAM being available to virtual machines and their applications. Scale Computing, the market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced the HC3250DF, the first of a new class of HC3 appliances designed to enhance support for performance-intensive use cases such as database analytics and high density Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployments. With faster storage, more CPU, and faster networking options, the HC3250DF is specifically designed for the needs of performance computing for both the enterprise and the SMB and from the core data center to the edge. Enterprise and SMB customers have a need for an HCI solution that can service larger databases, mid-range VDI, and other performance-intensive use cases. Scale Computing hits the mark with this latest addition to its core HC3 virtualization system, which has become well-known for its ability to be quickly deployed and easily managed and scaled, Steve McDowell, Senior Technology Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. Read More: NetActuate Begins Anycast, Virtual Machines, Bare Metal, Colocation, and Network Services from Its Second Edge Location in Santiago, Chile The HC3250DF stands out from other HCI solutions designed for performance computing with its ease of use, and brings a high amount of speed, density, throughput, and power to enable VDI for many more users per node while keeping future growth in focus. Unlike more complex infrastructure solutions that try to emulate classic SAN storage infrastructure, the Scale Computing HC3250DF is easier to deploy, manage, scale out, and its NVMe storage architecture requires no manual configuration and consumes less system RAM, resulting in more RAM being available to virtual machines and their applications. Easy to deploy and manage, the all-NVMe HC3250DF helps organizations run a wider range of applications with varying performance needs and supports higher VM density, increasing efficiency and allows IT departments everywhere to meet increased end-user expectations. Both persistent and non-persistent VDI workloads thrive on the newly redesigned underlying storage layer, which is created to maximize performance. With the new pressure on IT to enable remote work whenever necessary, this appliance is an excellent foundation for VDI deployments from a several hundred users to a few thousand, Dave Demlow, Vice President of Product Management, Scale Computing. Like all Scale Computing HC3 appliances, the HC3250DF features intelligent automation for self-healing and high availability to keep clusters running through component and appliance failures, as well as integrated disaster recovery capabilities to protect data and workloads to remote sites for fast failover and recovery. These capabilities enable applications to achieve maximum uptime even when local IT resources and staff are scarce, making the HC3250DF the ideal application platform for core data center and edge computing use cases where IoT, ease-of-use, high availability and TCO matter. This includes retail, industrial, finance, remote office/back office, and mobile platforms.

Binance Smart Chain trials community-governance voting mechanism to provide grants to Top BSC projects

Binance Smart Chain | November 30, 2021

Binance Smart Chain, the leading Defi, NFT and Infra platform, has completed the first community-voting mechanism pilot for its Most Valuable Builder Program that selected top ten projects from a pool of industry-leading BSC projects. The process of selecting the winners was on a decentralized-based voting mechanism where key members of the BSC community participated and voted. With Gelato Network, Radio Caca, Deri Protocol, Thetan Arena, MCDEX, Qubit, Biconomy, Zoo Crypto World, DeBank and Venly.io being chosen as the top winners eligible for $10,000 grants and investment opportunities under the $1B BSC Fund. In total, 245 BSC startups participated, a multitude of which grew by ~5X on average across the different metrics (users, transactions, volume, etc.). MVB BUIDL Rewards (Gas rebate program to builders) distributed over 2,800 BNB in October to more than 100 projects. That equals $1.82 million returned in transaction fees to projects building on BSC. The finale was also one of the first pilots of BSC's public voting mechanism to increase the smart chain's transparency and community governance. The voting started on November 18 at 13:00 UTC and ended on November 25 at 13:00 UTC. We're looking to onboard the next billion users in the crypto ecosystem. This requires participation from multiple stakeholders, including the ever-evolving crypto startups. By providing exposure and investment opportunities to the MVB III winners, we are fueling high potential projects to drive mass adoption." Gwendolyn Regina, Investment Director at BSC Accelerator Fund The members eligible to cast their ballot were part of BSC's voting committee who utilized NFT badges to select potential projects. The committee members were selected based on their contribution to the BSC ecosystem to improve the progressive decentralization goal. Members were distributed into five categories with various voting powers including BSC's core team, VCs/mentors, universities, KOLs/Media and previous MVB winners. That ensured unbiased and objecting voting. The governance mechanism was based on a weighted voting model. A total of 30 voting badges were distributed amongst 30 committee members and received 23 valid votes (effective votes accounted for 76.66%). At the end of the voting process, all voting power was accounted for and projects with the highest votes were announced as the Top MVB III winners. About Binance Smart Chain Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is a sovereign smart contract blockchain delivering Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible programmability. Designed for a lightning speed and low transaction fees while adding Smart Contracts functionality for dApps - BSC tops in infrastructure performance as the biggest DeFi blockchain with 100M+ users in its ecosystem.
