CloudPassage Inc Launches Python SDK for Halo® Platform

Python SDK includes many leverage tools such as libraries, documentations and pre-written sample codes that enable users to easily integrate the Halo in some other tools and applications. CloudPassage is a famous for its leading brand Halo. It is only broadly automated platform that is scalable, portable, efficient, on-demand security and compliance. It provides instantaneous visibility and nonstop security for the servers of any combination in the both private and public cloud data centers.

CloudPassage announced Python SDK for its leading product Halo on 20 December, 2016. Halo is a CloudPassage’s award-winning fully automated security platform that is delivered as Software as a service. This release includes many leverage tools within it includes documentations, libraries and sample code that allows users to integrate Halo platform in some other applications and tools easily and efficiently by just adding a few lines of code in the module.

Halo API utilities provide sufficient tools, using those tools any enterprise customers minimize the errors. It basically automates the remediation, create custom dashboards, and also adds security events in the workflow that help more to the users.

Sami Laine, principal technologist, CloudPassage, said: “With this new release, CloudPassage has made state-of-the-art automated security and compliance solutions more accessible than ever before, Halo was already capable of delivering secure innovation and deployment. The Python SDK makes it even easier for developers to integrate the security to their infrastructure.”

Python SDK helps programmers to develop custom integration more easily and efficiently without managing the tradition underlying communication infrastructure. This SDK prepares in the many high-fraction elements for using this Halo API such as authentication, token security renewal, and pagination. This is also helpful in making the API accessible for non-expert developers or users. And the final thing about the SDK is that it’s available in open-source nature. The open-source means any programmer who wants to modify the SDK for personal or company’s needs, he can freely modify the software with its needs.

Python SDK effectively troubleshoot and allows many developers to work together with the integration efforts. All the Halo related and supported tools ones like the Halo Event Connector, are used as standardized for the Halo Python SDK.

CloudPassage recently claimed three patents to its name that extended the scope of its first one original agent based agile security model and Rising as the first company that attain a United State patent for universal cloud infrastructure security. The leading software industries and enterprises like Adobe, Citrix, and Salesforce are using the CloudPassage these days to overcome on their security issues and compliance posture, on the same time, it also enables these enterprises to make their business more agile and secure.

VMware Launches KaaS Cloud Service on Photon Platform

KaaS – Kubernetes as a Service is robust, simple to operate cloud-native platform, that adds network virtualization and hyper-converged storage system services to privilege the modern container based technology. VMware, Inc announced Kubernetes on VMware Photon platform, Kubernetes as a Service includes IT operations,  to including the IT operations, teams have to deliver the platform for development teams. The VMware Photon platform will also include network and storage services. After addition of theses new services into the platform, it provides an end-to-end cloud-native infrastructure for the enterprises and also running modern applications that are based on container technology.

Businesses are growing tremendously and using various technologies like software applications and services to deliver innovative experience to their customers. The software companies are also adopting cloud-native application methodologies to reduce the application development life-cycle time. Now VMware Photon platform will capable to access the services that are needed to develop and run the modern applications including Kubernetes. VMware Photon platform privileges businesses to focus on development efforts rather building, operating, and supporting custom solution, It automates the IT infrastructure.

Paul Fazzone, vice president and general manager, Cloud-Native Applications Business Unit, VMware, Said, “VMware Photon Platform takes a major step forward by empowering IT teams to deliver, secure and operate the modern services that development teams require with the infrastructure automation demanded by today’s leading enterprise organizations. Based on the industry-leading hypervisor, network virtualization and hyper-converged storage solutions, VMware Photon Platform offers customers unprecedented business speed and agility to deliver innovative software solutions to market quicker.”

Kubernetes as a Service, has a multi-tenant fashion for workload isolation and security. Kubernetes clusters may have a single node cluster to hundreds of nodes. It can be possible for users to scale up the clusters as they needed with no down time. VMware Photon platform features like high availability capabilities, automatic healing from failure and reduce downtime of Kubernetes services. It gives an end-to-end support including commercially supported distribution of Kubernetes.

Photon Platform will initially introduce network services including switching and routing, as the time elapsed the platform will also updated to offer the logical networking elements and services completely.

VMware’s Photon platform will also introduce block storage services that offer flexible and programmable storage for container based modern cloud-native software applications. The service will capable to deliver elastic storage that supports to scale up and scale down the rapid application deployment.

Photon Platform encouraged to use where the organizations are practicing DevOps and agile development practices.

IBM to Extend Its Mainframe Based Cloud Capabilities to CSC Inc Clients

With this collaboration, the CSC clients would be able to benefit from the mainframe infrastructure for the cloud based offerings of IBM Corporation.

CSC and IBM  A new collaboration agreement to strengthen the partnership in the domain of cloud computing services and infrastructure sharing, IBM and CSC signed a partnership program. In this new agreement, the CSC clients would be able to leverage the IBM’s mainframe based infrastructure to use multiple cloud based services. The high end cloud infrastructure of IBM well known as IBM Cloud for Z, will help the CSC clients in making the transition to the cloud.

IBM will offer its fully managed cloud based services for Z system, which will create a great value for the clients of CSC Inc.

While elaborating the nature of the services extended by the IBM, it was informed that the collaborative offerings will include software, mainframe hardware, monitoring services, governance and the IBM support. With this agreement, a huge cut in the operational cost for the CSC is being anticipated in the market.

The executive vice president and the general managers of global infrastructure service division at CSC Inc, Mr. Stephen Hilton, in his official statement said, “Many clients are looking for ways to make historically fixed cost more variable to migrate from legacy platforms to modernized applications and to a cloud enabled infrastructure. This new cloud-based service expands our cloud offering and is a natural evolution of our long-standing alliance with IBM.”

It is very important to note that the CSC has been trying to pursue its vision to become a service-enabled enterprise. This partnership with IBM for the highly secure, reliable and reputed cloud infrastructure use would enable the company to be able to pursue its technological vision more easily.

The company wants to achieve flexibility, and greater security of the valuable data and processes of its client while transitioning their processes to the cloud. This need was easily fulfilled by the materialization of this partnership of cloud collaboration.

While talking about the secure cloud infrastructure, IBM said in its official statement, “Since Cloud for z runs on IBM’s enterprise mainframes, the service will also provide CSC clients with greater computing security to reduce operating risks and cut the costs of their computing and IT operations by using a shared infrastructure for the software, server, disk, and the tape requirements”.

This is a win-win deal for both of the partners of this agreement.
