Qumulo Launches

Qumulo presents what it claims is the first "universal-scale" file storage system-- Qumulo File Fabric (QF2), a next-generation storage system able to create a single file domain spanning on-premises datacentres and the cloud.

Designed to work to both own datacentres and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud, QF2 promises to provide enterprises with storage, management and access of file-based in any operating environment, at petabyte and global scale. It uses cross-cluster replication to move data wherever it is needed, be it on premises and the cloud, with no limit to the amount files used.

The company claims it already has customers with data footprints "in excess of a billion files."

Arista Any Cloud for Cloud Consistency

Arista promises to bring consistency to cloud networks with Any Cloud-- a means for enterprises to simplfiy the integration and management of hybrid clouds across private and public clouds.

The software platform uses the vEOS virtualised router to bring the Extensible Operating System (EOS) across multiple hypervisor and cloud deployment platforms. vEOS leverages the existing cloud-grade routing stack, and includes IPSEC VPN tunnels to securely interconnect workloads across multi-cloud deployments.

Meanwhile CloudVision technology enables zero-touch provisioning, streamlined network operations across private and public clouds, state streaming from real-time telemetry, event correlation and anomaly detection via analytics engine and a common dashboard for increased visualisation.

The Portable Axellio Edge Computing System

Customers wanting to easily carry a high performance computing system get such a product from X-IO-- the portable version of the Axellio edge-computing platform fits in two "easily-transportable" suitcases.

But why would an on-the-go rapid response team choose a portable Axellio system, instead of a stack of laptops? According to X-IO portable Axellio can handle advanced analytics in real time, as it carries up to 88 CPU cores, 2TB RAM, 460TB NVMe flash storage and x4 100GbE network connectivity, all within a high-density 2U design.

The result, the company claims, is a system able to handle 12 million IOPS and 480 Gbps transfer rates with under 50ms latency. The hardware is easily disassembled before reassembly onsite, with one carry-on suitcase holding the storage while a larger suitcase contains the main server chassis.


Microsoft Adds Security to Azure

Microsoft Adds Security to Azure

Microsoft proposes a a boost in security for the Azure cloud platform-- Confidential Compute, a feature allowing applications running on Azure to keep data encrypted even when being computed in-memory.

Azure already encrypts data while at rest at in transit, but the encryption of data while in an in-use state eliminates a potential weak link in the security process. After all, data loses all protection when it is is processed by applications, meaning hackers can potentially access it via malware.

"Confidential Computing ensures that when data is "in the clear," which is required for efficient processing, the data is protected inside a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE)," a Microsoft blog post reads. "TEEs ensure there is no way to view data or the operations inside from the outside, even with a debugger. They even ensure that only authorised code is permitted to access data."


VMware, Pivotal, Google Team Up in Container Service

VMware, Pivotal, Google Team Up in Container Service

VMware announces a partnership with Pivotal and Google at VMworld-- one with a focus on containers, specifically through a new service dubbed Pivotal Container Service (PKS).

According to the 3 companies, PKS simplifies the creation, deplyment and management of container project at scale. Each company brings something to the table, since Google provides the Kubernetes container orchestration tool, Pivotal adds the Cloud Foundry Platform as a Service (PaaS) and VMware ties everything with a final management layer.

Pivotal also gets final naming rights, explaining the admittedly confusing PKS acronym. Either way, the result is "production-ready Kubernetes" running on VMware vSphere and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). It is based on Kubo, the open-source container management system developed by Google and Pivotal, and provides a container development environment on Cloud Foundry. A VMware layer provides the management of the entire container lifecycle.
