Using steady-state and baseline features, IT administrators can better balance user experience and system costs. Login VSI also introduced a new performance view of the operations dashboard, which delivers a comprehensive understanding of VDI and DaaS health through cost, capacity, and performance metrics.
"VDI and DaaS environments are complex, and communicating their performance and cost to various departments can be challenging. Our new dashboard feature presents the system's health digestibly with numbers and visuals that tell a story, empowering teams to maximize their IT investments and deliver exceptional experiences," said Vigeant.

ThinkData Works Inc., a leading data catalog provider, is introducing new platform improvements that support data virtualization from more than 40 data sources. This enhancement increases the number of data source integrations available on the ThinkData Works Catalog Platform, including native support for Snowflake, BigQuery, and other cloud warehouses, as well as Oracle, SQL Servers, mongoDB and streaming data sources like Kafka and Kinesis. By supporting integration with these data sources, ThinkData Works enables out-of-the-box data fabric capabilities for organizations with hybrid cloud environments.
According to recent research by Google, the majority of organizations deploy applications on multiple on-premises and cloud solutions, clearly indicating that hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud is a reality for modern business. ThinkData Works' new capabilities harmonize these environments through virtualization technology, allowing customers to deploy a data catalog that enables governance across an entire decentralized data ecosystem without requiring data asset migration. This approach ensures compliance and governance are maintained while creating visibility and streamlined data access across organizations without the need for custom connections to data sources.
With an increasing number of companies repatriating data from cloud to on-premises, this feature addresses concerns around ballooning cloud costs and complex migrations. Teams can easily connect to data in a standard way no matter where it resides, even facilitating data migration to or from the cloud.
"The idea that companies are migrating their data to a single cloud warehouse is a myth," said Bryan Smith, Co-founder and CEO of ThinkData Works. "These days it's much more likely that an average organization will have data stored in a number of different places, both cloud and on-premises, and they need a good way to manage, access, and report on this data quickly. We're excited to launch these new capabilities to our users, who know first hand how diverse a data environment can be."
“Non-Invasive Data Governance is based on the idea that organizations can achieve appropriate levels of governance without a major lift-and-shift of their data," says Robert S. Seiner, President and Principal of KIK Consulting & Educational Services and the author of two books on Non-Invasive Data Governance. "By supporting data virtualization from essential data sources, ThinkData Works is helping companies with hybrid cloud environments put non-invasive data governance rules into practice."
Prospective customers can experience the power of the ThinkData Works data catalog platform first-hand through a new Free Trial offering, now available for a limited time.

Lookout, Inc., the endpoint-to-cloud security company, today announced the integration of the Lookout Cloud Security Platform with VMware SD-WAN™. The Lookout platform with VMware SD-WAN provides customers with a best-of-breed secure access service edge (SASE) solution that delivers optimized network connectivity and data protection from any device and any location.
The increase in remote work and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies has amplified the need for organizations to protect any user, any device, from any location. This transformation has forced an evolution of how network and security services are delivered, ensuring the most direct and secure access to cloud applications. It no longer makes sense to backhaul traffic across expensive networks to a centralized data center for security enforcement. A SASE solution transforms legacy security into a set of cloud-delivered, converged network and security services that are available when and where they are needed.
The Lookout Cloud Security Platform provides customers with more secure and reliable access to cloud applications from any device and location. VMware SD-WAN ensures reliable, efficient, and optimal access paths to these applications from any location under varying network conditions. The integrated Lookout and VMware solution, which combines cloud security and cloud network connectivity, provides customers with improved network performance, centralized management of security policies and enhanced visibility and monitoring of all end-user activity between branch offices. Enterprises gain full cloud and data security across internet, SaaS, and private applications for any user and branch office regardless of location.
"Lookout and VMware are enabling customers to implement a SASE architecture that delivers zero trust outcomes that uniquely address the evolving business needs faced by cloud-first enterprises today," said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst, ZK Research. "By integrating the Lookout Cloud Security Platform with VMware SD-WAN, they're providing customers with a more reliable and efficient way to secure remote access to data and applications, simplify management of branch office connectivity and have enhanced visibility of all end user activity. This new partnership will help enterprises protect their data and optimize their network performance."
"VMware and Lookout are collaborating to enable users to connect to their cloud applications in an optimal and more secure manner," said Sashi Annaluru, head of SASE Engineering, VMware. "The integration of VMware SD-WAN and Lookout Cloud Security Platform will give customers the choice and flexibility to transform their networking and security infrastructure and accelerate SASE adoption. Together, our solution will help customers with reliable and efficient connectivity to stay productive while protecting their infrastructure and data."
"Protecting data in the new norm of a hybrid workforce is challenging. Our partnership with VMware provides our joint customers with an architecture based on SASE, and that is unique and focused on protecting our customer's data along with delivering an industry leading solution to optimize network connectivity," said Sundaram Lakshmanan, chief technology officer, Lookout. "With the Lookout Cloud Security Platform and VMware SD-WAN, customers will experience reliable, efficient, and secure access to all applications, and more importantly protect the data stored in these applications when accessed from any location and any device."
