Porticor Joins VMware Technology Alliance Partner Program

The VSX is an online virtualization and cloud infrastructure marketplace

Porticor, a cloud data security company delivering a cloud-based data encryption solution that infuses trust into the cloud and keeps cloud data confidential by ensuring customer keys are kept private, today announced that it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program.  Members of the TAP program collaborate with VMware to deliver innovative solutions for virtualization and cloud computing.  The diversity and depth of the TAP ecosystem provides customers with the flexibility to choose a partner with the right expertise to satisfy their unique needs.

“We welcome Porticor as a valued member of the VMware TAP program,” said Sheryl Sage, director, Alliance Programs, VMware.  “This membership means customers can take full advantage of a streamlined virtualization and cloud infrastructure experience.  VMware provides an online marketplace, VMware Solution Exchange (VSX), where customers can learn more about Porticor’s collaboration with VMware and our continued commitment to developing breakthrough technologies that can transform business.”

“VMware provides a secure and reliable platform that provides customers the benefits of cloud computing while maintaining the security, control and efficiency they require,” said Ariel Dan, Porticor co-founder, VP Sales and Marketing.  “With this VMware TAP alliance and integration with VMware hybrid and private clouds, Porticor’s split-key, data-layer encryption that is fully cloud-based offers customers that need additional data security a dynamic and elastic service.”

The VSX is an online virtualization and cloud infrastructure marketplace that provides customers with a single point of entry to discover, evaluate, and rate business solutions.  Porticor product information, collateral and other assets are listed within the online VMware Solution Exchange at https://solutionexchange.vmware.com/store/products/8070.

With thousands of members worldwide, the VMware TAP program includes best-of-breed technology partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solutions for each unique customer environment.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
