  • VMware is introducing the vShield family of products at VMworld. 2010.vShield solutions secure the edge of the virtual datacenter, protect virtualized application deployments from network-based threats, and streamline antivirus protection for all VMs by offloading AV processing to dedicated security VMs.vShield Edge protects the perimeter of a virtual data center, and provides services such as DHCP (Dynamic Host Config Protocol), NAT (Network Address Translation), Firewall, VPN and Web Load Balancing.vShield App protects application deployments from network based threats. It allows for flexible and elastic groupings of VMs based on business needs such as PCI, HIPAA, DMZ deployments. vShield App extends the basic vShield Zones capability that is included as part of vSphere advanced onward SKUs, by adding flexible VM grouping by user defined policies and supporting vCenter container based policies.vShield Endpoint enables efficient, offloaded AV processing. Partners such as Trend Micro, Symantec and McAfee will ship the security virtual machines that integrate with vShield Endpoint for offloaded AV processing. vShield Manager is the centralized deployment, management, reporting, logging, tracking and integration (REST based APIs) for all vShield products.

  • C - To understand the benefits of the GreenBytes Hybrid Storage Architecture (HSA), we must first understand – at a very high level, how this evolutionary approach came to be.Typical storage subsystems would have large numbers of spinning disks behind high-speed RAM that would act as a cache for all I/O from either the host or the back-end disk. Cache became a critical resource – expensive, but necessary for demanding application performance.As SSDs became more popular, storage vendors started using SSDs as a lower cost alternative or to augment costly cache, to continue to improve I/O performance for demanding applications.GreenBytes has improved further this model by using high speed SSDs for specific areas within the storage subsystem and with the added flexibility of treating this resource based upon application demands. The ability to enable, disable or bypass these resources empowers storage administrators to provision storage resources based upon business demands and not the storage vendors “one-size-fits-all” limiting architecture.
