WAYNE, PA – Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) has expanded its Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification across its modern, resilient cloud platforms, and now offers compliant production and disaster recovery services on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and its managed private cloud.

Organizations are often burdened with achieving PCI DSS compliance for everything from their infrastructure to their applications. By achieving certification, Sungard AS now reduces the complexity and cost of the process for customers, who only need to certify their applications.


While initial certification takes months or even years and can be costly, the real challenge for many organizations is maintaining it. One study from Verizon’s PCI DSS Compliance report found that only 29 percent of organizations were still compliant a year after their initial certification. Sungard AS is among those few, having demonstrated its ability to maintain PCI compliance for other services for half a decade, assuring that it can enable compliance for all customers.

“We’re continually updating and improving our cloud offerings to keep pace with market changes as well as deliver the service customers need,” said Josh Crowe, Chief Technology Officer at Sungard AS. “By certifying our cloud platforms for PCI compliance, customers who need PCI compliance can leverage our AWS and managed private cloud services to achieve their objectives quickly for both production and recovery workloads.”

AWS shared responsibility model of security means that while AWS is PCI-compliant, the elements organizations add to the cloud, from their operating systems, network and firewall configuration to their client-side and server-side data protections, must be PCI-certified by each organization. Sungard AS offers both production and recovery environments that are PCI-certified, saving crucial steps.

Private clouds grant organizations more control for mission-critical or complex workloads, achieving agility, security and economics with platforms like VMware. But the PCI certification process can be arduous in private cloud because both production and recovery environments must be compliant. Sungard AS uses the exact same infrastructure for production and recovery in a hosted private cloud, which both eliminates the double work and speeds PCI-compliant recovery.

LAS VEGAS, NV – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ : SMCI ), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, today introduced its latest fully configured, ready to deploy software-defined storage (SDS) solution at VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas, booth 2137, Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center.

“Our new All-Flash NVMe BigTwin™ solution, which is fully ready to deploy and has undergone stringent validation testing and certification by Intel, VMware and Supermicro, is the preferred platform for many of today’s leading hyperconvergence players,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “This All-Flash vSAN hyper-converged solution accelerates software-defined storage, optimizes data center infrastructure, and ultimately fast-tracks the process of selecting and deploying hardware and software.”

This BigTwin SDS solution has higher core counts designed to support more virtual machines (VM) per node and system. With up to 3TB memory per node, All-Flash NVMe BigTwin technology is ideal for in-memory database applications. Each node supports six hot-swap NVMe drives to fully maximize performance.

Featuring Supermicro’s flexible, cost-optimized SIOM networking module, the All-Flash NVMe BigTwin supports a variety of 10G, 25G, 50G and 100G network interface options. The solution’s multi-node architecture maximizes power efficiency through resource sharing for greener computing and saves customers on both CAPEX and OPEX to deliver the best TCO.

Using Intel® Optane™ DC SSDs with NVMe support for caching helps this high-performance SDS solution accelerate storage performance up to 3X with endurance up to 30 drive writes per day (DWPD). These Supermicro VMWare solutions based on the BigTwin offer vSAN data protection for mission-critical applications. To learn more about this hyper-converged solution, refer to the following whitepaper: https://www.supermicro.com/white_paper/white_paper_BigTwin.pdf.

To address the rapidly growing demand for digital storage, many enterprise customers are looking at lower latency solutions with higher capacities. With 36 NF1 and 32 Ruler form factor NVMe SSDs, Supermicro’s Petascale 1U JBOFs and storage servers support large capacities of high-performance, all-flash NVMe storage in just 1U of rack space, which rivals much more expensive traditional storage at a fraction of the footprint and infrastructure cost.

In addition, Supermicro’s All-Flash 1U Ultra system (SYS-1029U-TN10RT) with proven low latency and high efficiency, when loaded with an NVIDIA Tesla V100 accelerator card, provides a very well balanced solution in terms of density, performance and efficiency for many AI, HPC and graphics applications.

Jenkins is shifting gears on its platform to address a number of problems like service instability, brittle configuration, and more for Jenkins developers. As an open source automation server, the Jenkins offers hundreds of plugins to support developers build, deploy and automate the projects. Released in 2011, the platform is currently having thousands of contributors and millions of users. However, the Jenkins developers face several challenges in the development cycle of a software project. Enterprises nowadays are running bigger workloads, loading up more plugins, while expecting higher availability at the same time. A lot of projects require developers to frequently restart them because of issues with resources and plugin upgrades. However, the restarts imply degraded service for the software delivery teams. In such cases, they need to wait longer for their builds to start or complete. Service stability has become a mission critical service for enterprises, and the enterprises…

Jelastic, the Multi-Cloud DevOps PaaS, has added support for Go cloud hosting to its platform. When Jelastic was founded in 2011, it started as a true Java platform, but it evolved over the years to support PHP, Ruby, Node.js, Python and .NET programming languages. And now it has expanded the platform to support Go as well. In an interview with DHN, Jelastic CEO Ruslan Synytsky said that multilingual support enables developers to deploy, scale and manage a variety of applications in the cloud, regardless of the specific programming language or software stack. “Jelastic keeps advocating the “freedom of choice” idea, so widening up the list of supported languages is an obvious step for us,” mentioned Jelastic. The platform provides a number of engine versions for creating a Go environment. These versions can be easily changed through containers redeployment. Developers can now easily deploy the Go applications to Jelastic PaaS as Git projects. The apps are deployed via intuitive user…
