Dynatrace announces Software Intelligence support for Google Cloud Platform

Grazed from Dynatrace

Software intelligence company, Dynatrace, today announced at Google Cloud Next 2018, automated support for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environments. With this announcement, operations teams can extend the scope of the Dynatrace platform to workloads in Google Cloud, eliminating manual and siloed monitoring of independent Kubernetes clusters, and enabling automatic AI-assisted answers to performance problems across GCP workloads.

"Historically, due to the complexity of enterprise cloud environments, monitoring solutions for GCP have operated in siloes, focusing only on Kubernetes clusters or workloads independently. This has rendered organizations unable to understand how performance problems within one application or container may be impacting the performance of others. As a result, enterprises can easily overlook performance issues that put the software performance at risk," said Alois Reitbauer, VP, Chief Technology Strategist, Dynatrace.

Symantec Introduces Cloud Workload Protection Suite; Automates Visibility & Security for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform

Grazed from Symantec

Symantec Corp. has announced new additions to Symantec Cloud Workload Protection (CWP) Suite, adding multilayered anti-malware scanning for workloads, protecting both compute and storage.

The demand for greater business agility has led many organizations to adopt a hybrid cloud infrastructure often combining on-premises, public and private clouds. However, traditional on-premises security tools do not have the cloud-native integrations required to protect and scale with workloads and storage in these dynamic environments. Symantec CWP and CWP for Storage include multilayered anti-malware protection powered by industry-leading Symantec Endpoint Security (SEP) technologies to help discover and mitigate viruses and threats. CWP helps automatically discover, visualize and protect workloads across heterogeneous hybrid cloud data center environments using a single agent, single console solution. The solution supports physical on-premises servers, virtualized private clouds, and public cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Zenoss Inc., a leader in software-defined IT operations, today announced the general availability of Zenoss Cloud, an intelligent IT operations management platform. The company's next-generation cloud-native offering enables businesses to prevent IT outages and optimize cloud and on-premises systems as they undergo digital transformation, a business requirement for the survival of companies across all industries.

Technology vendors have taken many different approaches over the years to help prevent IT service outages and improve overall IT performance. These approaches include infrastructure monitoring, artificial intelligence operations, log analytics and more. Some approaches collect performance data from systems directly, some rely on logs, some rely on events, while others rely on data sent from agents. Zenoss Cloud represents one of the first platforms that combines all of these approaches.

GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.

 A New Path to a Successful Cloud

Cloudistics has announced a new partnership with Lenovo to deliver the Lenovo ThinkAgile CP Series, a full-fledged Cloudistics experience on Lenovo hardware.

In a world that's moving toward no ops and serverless computing, operational simplicity is becoming a critical business requirement. Without it, your staff lack the agility and efficiency needed to deliver compelling value. And your business outcomes are restricted and delayed by legacy technologies.

 Instead of the confined old days of datacenter IT, imagine a world where you can, for the first time, discover what a premium experience looks like. With the Lenovo ThinkAgile CP, you can:
