Leading data protection solutions provider Baffle is expanding its capabilities to serverless computing. The company said it will now offer first-to-market data-centric protection for Amazon’s AWS Lambda. Baffle’s Advanced Data Protection service starts data encryption right from the time of production and do so throughout the entire process. This helps in protecting data at all times. Last year, CRN recognized Baffle as an emerging vendor in the security category. AWS Lambda is a serverless computing service that allows users to run code for virtually any kind of application and backend service. It doesn’t need users to provision or manage any servers. They get billed only for the compute time and aren’t charged when the code is not running. AWS Lambda is an ideal service for applications that don’t need any compute infrastructure provisioning. As per a report by Cloud Foundry Foundation, nearly 46% of companies are using and evaluating serverless computing in 2018, which is a 10%…

ST. LOUIS – Connectria, a global leader in cloud services, today announced the launch of four new services that allow businesses to run IBM i and AIX workloads alongside workloads in Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

By combining Connectria’s industry leading IBM i Cloud and IBM AIX Cloud with Azure and AWS, Connectria makes it easier for IBM Power Systems Users to safely move all their data center workloads, including legacy applications, to the cloud. Designed to minimize effort and mitigate risks, Connectria’s solutions include full data migration and planning services along with Connectria’s comprehensive 24/7 managed services and security to ensure that its customers’ environments are reliable and secure.


“Adding IBM i and AIX Workloads into Azure and AWS is a game-changer for customers looking to move their workloads to the cloud,” said Rich Waidmann, Connectria’s President and CEO. “Our customers want the flexibility to run the right workloads in the right clouds, but without sacrificing security, compliance, performance, or costs. Our new solutions make this possible. Best of all, they’re available today.”

Every Connectria solution includes the TRiA Multi-Cloud Management Platform, which allows Connectria and its customers to monitor and manage all of their cloud environments from within a single dashboard. With TRiA, customers can address the three biggest challenges when running applications in the cloud: Performance; Security/Compliance, and Cost Optimization.

TRiA continuously gathers data from cloud resources; monitors security, compliance, performance, and costs; identifies anomalies; creates events; and notifies Connectria’s 24/7 Command Center when intervention is needed. Using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, the evaluation and resolution of many events happens automatically and quickly. The result is a best-practice approach to managing mission critical workloads in the cloud across a wide range of systems.

“The vast majority of the CIOs and CTOs we talk to don’t want to replace their core business applications running on IBM i or AIX, just so that they can move to the cloud,” said Rusty Putzler, Chief Operating Officer at Connectria. “But they do want the benefits of the cloud in terms of flexibility, scalability, and avoiding capital outlays for equipment and data centers. Our solutions enable this, and bring the benefits of AWS and Azure to IBM i and IBM AIX customers under one umbrella.

All four solutions are immediately available from Connectria.

An increasing number of developers are preferring serverless computing to avoid the complexities of modern software development. In the development arena today, the developers are concerned about performance, scalability, security, privacy and more burdens.
