Rackspace Technology Announces Collaboration with Cohesity

A global provider of end-to-end, multi-cloud technology solutions company, Rackspace Technology recently established a strategic alliance with Cohesity, a leader in next-gen data management, to offer multi-cloud hosted backup and restore services to Rackspace Technology clients across the world. Rackspace Data Protection, an elevated, operating system Cohesity-Powered backup and data restoration solution that enables cybersecurity resistant automated backup and recovery across VMware-based clouds, will be available to clients as part of the agreement.

The Chief Product Officer at Rackspace Technology, Josh Prewitt, commented, “The partnership with Cohesity gives our customers access to a proven, robust data protection solution that eliminates legacy backup silos and provides comprehensive protection against the array of rising data threats they are facing, including ransomware. Customers can now manage and control data recovery from a single source, more efficiently store data, and eliminate potentially costly disruptions.”

The integration of Cohesity’s data protective barrier with VMware Cloud Director (vCD) will let SecOps and ITOps work together to better tackle cyber threats and empower customers with self-service management. Rackspace Technology is a well-known leader in the market in VMware- based cloud services, where its customers can take comfort in the fact that their data and operations performing on VMware technology are much more secure today than in the past.

DataProtect of Cohesity seems to be the cornerstone of the Rackspace Data Protection system, primarily incorporating VMware backup and recovery, as well as features like advisory services and ransomware anomaly detection and mitigation. Users of Rackspace Technology who use Rackspace Data Protection can take advantage of the potential of significant next-generation data management and protection benefits and efficiency.

John Theberge, The Vice President, Global Alliances, Service Providers, and GSIs at Cohesity, stated, “We are excited to engage in this partnership as it really addresses customers’ number one concern today, developing cyber resilience so they can quickly defend and if needed, rapidly recover data in the event of a cyberattack. Our next-gen data management capabilities, including DataProtect, give Rackspace Technology customers a simple and powerful solution that can enhance their security posture, advance protection, and improve their business resiliency.”

TSB Golden Gate Release Helps Developers Configure Policies For Their Applications

Tetrate declared the general availability of Tetrate Service Bridge (TSB), Golden Gate release.

API Gateway, a web application firewall (WAF), and service mesh capabilities are all combined into a single administration plane in this latest edition, resulting in a cloud-agnostic unified application connection platform.

TSB delivers centralized governance and decentralized enforcement to application networking by unifying these capabilities—essential for enabling zero-trust security across historical and new workloads.

The Envoy-based application networking layer from TSB blurs the lines between north-south and east-west traffic, making it all just application traffic. From the edge to the workload, developers may now apply capabilities previously only available in an API gateway to any element of their application topology. API Gateway and a comprehensive set of API governance tools are included in the TSB Golden Gate release out of the box.

Developers may find it difficult to gain access and understand how to configure application-specific network and security policies, which can have a negative impact on productivity. Simultaneously, networking and security teams lack the resources necessary to enforce policy demands and ensure that they are followed. This misalignment of access and knowledge results in non-compliant networking and uneven policy enforcement, which leads to security breaches.

With the Golden Gate version, TSB now allows developers to create policies for their applications without having to grasp the complexity of new technologies like Envoy and Istio while yet harnessing their potential.

CEO, and co-founder of Tetrate, Varun Talwar said, “Application architectures are increasingly becoming distributed in nature. When combined with the need for multi-cloud infrastructures, application networking, and security policies, management becomes a complex problem. TSB elegantly simplifies this challenge with its management plane, a layer that binds the runtime system to the users and teams. Enterprises can implement controls for regulatory requirements with confidence and maintain many unrelated teams on the same infrastructure without shared-fate outages.”

Prosimo and AWS Bring New Advanced Services to Simplify Cloud Networking

Prosimo, an Application Experience Infrastructure firm, announced new cloud networking features developed on Amazon Web Services (AWS) innovations to ease hybrid and multi-cloud networking. Clients who want to develop an elastic and scalable transit with AWS Cloud WAN for cross-region connectivity can use the Prosimo Application eXperience Infrastructure (AXI) platform, which includes cloud-native integrations. Furthermore, the availability of Containers Everywhere in the AWS Marketplace allows businesses to deploy Prosimo AXI edges across their hybrid architecture using a single AWS portal. Businesses prefer a secure and optimised network transit that utilises cloud-native constructs, auto-scales as the footprint tends to grow as business requirements change, and continues to work consistently across multiple cloud regions, edge locations, and co-locations.

“AWS is delighted to work closely with Prosimo as we share a common vision in helping customers simplify and automate cloud networking to support distributed workforces and digital transformation strategies. This work delivers tightly integrated services that leverage Prosimo AXI for comprehensive hybrid and multi-cloud networking with industry-leading cloud services from AWS to simplify the onramp, migration and management of the enterprise journey in the cloud of our customers,” said Chris Grusz, Director of Business Development, AWS Marketplace.

Hybrid architectures and multi-cloud networks have become progressively complex and dynamic as a result of the heterogeneous nature of enterprise cloud adoption. For enterprises to support distributed workplaces and deliver excellent customer experience, enterprises must provide a consistent, reliable, and secure experience throughout all business-critical and latency-sensitive applications for clients in any location. Moreover, as more organisations use cloud-native architectures to revamp application frameworks and deliver applications faster, ‘application to application’ networking offers a simplified, elastic, and scalable solution.

Prosimo AXI is a self-contained multi-cloud networking solution built on cloud-native frameworks that provide complete and accurate observability as well as ML-insight-driven recommendations and orchestration. Prosimo AXI provides enterprises with fine-grained command over routing for optimised application performance, as well as the capacity to create security policies based on a Zero Trust framework.

“Our work with AWS makes it easy and seamless for any enterprise to simplify and realize autonomous cloud networking at any stage of the multi-cloud journey from hybrid cloud, multi-cloud and to the edge. We are ecstatic to be working closely with AWS on go-to-market, collaborating on product integrations and delivering compelling new services to customers,” said Ramesh Prabagaran, CEO and co-founder of Prosimo.

“With these new features and functionality on the AXI Platform, Prosimo will be ideally suited to meet our goals:  enable modern infrastructure capabilities using newer AWS networking constructs such as CloudWAN, built-in observability for applications, and remove as much complexity as possible,” said Kevin Paige , CISO, Flexport.

 Clients can now orchestrate Transit Gateway, Virtual Private Cloud peering and PrivateLink, as well as AWS CloudWAN, using the Prosimo AXI platform, which utilises cloud-native connectivity frameworks. Clients can also easily migrate to the favoured cloud-native networking option, such as AWS CloudWAN, and create detailed, accurate and contextual policies while offering a fast, secure, and smooth on-demand application experience for users worldwide with no disruption to end-users using Prosimo AXI.
