VMware Collaborates with German Universities on Automating Life; VMware’s Path to 6G

VMware | March 08, 2022

VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a leading innovator in enterprise software, today unravelled its vision for Automating Life. The vision is underpinned by the fusion of cloud, networking and AI technologies and a belief system structured around equity, sustainability and trust. To chart a successful course to 6G, the evolution of these underlying technologies must align with the evolutionary cycle of human behavior, society, and technology as they influence each other to form an evolution continuum.

“This evolution continuum — the way people change, technology evolves, and society responds — is how VMware aims to shape its path to 6G — by promoting technologies centered around human needs, e.g., that improves and saves lives, but more importantly, enable humans to grow in and with technology in the way people want — not the way technology dictates,” said Kaniz Mahdi, vice president of distributed edge, VMware. “We are delighted to support Professor Fitzek and Professor Falko on their mission to shape the future of wireless with human-centric technologies.”

Under the direction of Professor Frank Fitzek at TU Dresden, the Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI) and the 6G-life hub are working to enable humans to interact in quasi real-time with cyber-physical-systems in the physical or digital world over intelligent communications networks (5G and beyond). Enabling this type of interaction will promote equitable access to remote environments for people of different genders, ages, cultural backgrounds, or physical limitations. It also has the potential to democratize access to skills and expertise as well as its cutting-edge research for sustainability, security, resilience, and latency.

We’re thrilled to be working with VMware to further the research and innovations that are playing a significant role in the path to 6G. We started 6G-life to provide new approaches for sustainability, security, resiliency and latency. This collaboration will help us advance our leading work in specific areas such as the Tactile Internet in the Cluster of Excellence CeTI, 5G communications networks, quantum communication and artificial intelligence methods.”

Frank Fitzek, professor and head of the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks at TU Dresden.

Infortrend Powers Up Scale-Out Unified Storage EonStor GS U.2

Infortrend | May 31, 2022

Infortrend Technology, Inc., a market-leading enterprise storage supplier, has enhanced EonStor GS U.2, an enterprise scale-out unified storage system with U.2 NVMe SSD. It provides block and file-level scale-out extensibility to boost capacity and performance as storage requirements rise. The EonStor GS (GS) unified SAN/NAS storage is intended for a variety of corporate applications such as database, virtualization, video post-production, and file sharing. It provides excellent capacity and performance in a variety of ways. Users can begin with one GS and add other GS as required to establish a cluster with up to four appliances through scale-out. GS supports the common ultra-fast U.2 SSD and boosts performance up to 1000K IOPS and 22GB/s per appliance to improve data processing with high IOPS and low latency. GS offers a single namespace for CIFS and NFS user access from Windows, Linux, and macOS. IT administration can be simplified even further with auto-balancing, which ensures that data is stored equitably on each GS in a cluster. IT personnel may save money by expanding all-flash U.2 GS with HDD JBOD and letting the auto-tiering technology move 'hot' and 'cold' data between high-performance SSD and cost-effective HDD. For forward-looking enterprises seeking a competitive and cost-saving solution, we updated GS unified storage with support of scale-out expandability and U.2 SSD. Users can connect several GS into a cluster with optimized load balancing, increased I/Os, and tight data protection." Frank Lee, Senior Director of Product Planning Infortrend has revamped its 2022 Reseller Partnership Program to assist partners in increasing expertise and profitability. Partners enjoy special benefits like deal registration with price protection, access to demo machines, and much more.
