Leading cybersecurity firm Trend Micro has unveiled a new security solution called Deep Security Smart Check, enabling DevOps teams to continuously scan the container images before deployment. Trend Micro already provides Deep Security solution to protect the Docker hosts and containers that run on Linux distributions. The new solution will complement the Deep Security, said Trend Micro. Deep Security Smart Check can scan the container images in private and cloud registries even before they are deployed to production. It detects the malware, assess the vulnerabilities and notifies the users. DevOps teams can visualize the scan results through a dashboard and resolve the security issues in the development cycle itself, rather than after releasing the application. “Container platforms are enabling organizations to achieve faster software development release cycles, and they do not accept slowing down for additional security measures,” said Bill McGee, SVP and GM of Hybrid Cloud Security…

LONGMONT, CO – Burlywood, an innovator of flash-based storage for cloud data centers, today introduced TrueFlash™, a storage software solution that is optimized to customer applications, uses flash more efficiently, and delivers improved performance in a more cost-effective manner than current SSDs.

Led by an expert team with decades of storage controller experience, Burlywood has built an architecture that allows for rapid innovation and flexible integration of customer requirements. With the introduction of TrueFlash, Burlywood is providing the industry’s first modular flash storage architecture that accelerates time to market of new flash technology while delivering disruptive cost and performance benefits to customers deploying cloud storage solutions, all-flash arrays, and hyper-converged solutions.


“With a predicted growth rate in data of 500 percent over the next 10 years, many IT managers struggle to balance the need for faster, denser and lower-powered flash against the expense and limited availability that the current supply chain yields,” said George Crump, President and Founder of Storage Switzerland. “By changing how storage works and how it is delivered, Burlywood is attempting to lower flash costs and improve time to market in order to provide cloud companies with the advantages of SSDs at 20 to 40 percent less cost over current solutions.”

By deploying a disruptive business model that reduces cost and improves supply, Burlywood is making it easy for hyperscale enterprises, content delivery networks, and cloud providers to transition to an all-flash architecture. TrueFlash allows for the use of the latest flash technology with better performance earlier in the lifecycle of flash nodes. Integrated multi-stream Quality of Service (QoS) provides advanced traffic management and consistent performance, tuning it to match the exact needs of customers’ environments and workloads.

TrueFlash is the industry’s first modular flash controller architecture designed specifically for hyperscale data centers and AFA/HCI systems. By supporting all storage formats, any protocol and current or future NAND memory, Burlywood provides organizations with full SSD solutions based on the TrueFlash software and FPGA optimized to customers’ specifications.

“It comes as no surprise that companies everywhere are looking for a solution that will allow them to deploy an optimized storage environment for their applications at the lowest possible total cost of ownership, and shortest time to market” said Tod Earhart, CEO of Burlywood. “While an all-flash data center is ideally suited to deliver the benefits of performance and density, cost has long been a limiting factor. By using the latest flash available for a specific application, combined with an advanced programmable controller and Burlywood TrueFlash software, we are able to deliver an enterprise-class flash solution at a cost of up to 40 percent less while increasing performance and expanding capacity.”

TrueFlash is available via an array of flexible business models with dedicated in-house support, technical and strategic support in all phases of its lifecycle, and collaborative roadmap planning from Burlywood. Additional information about TrueFlash is available at https://www.burlywoodtech.com

About Burlywood
Powered by a highly productive, expert development team comprised of executives from companies such as HP, Western Digital, Hitachi, Micron and Intel, storage software startup Burlywood is accelerating the transition to the all-flash data center. The company’s patented TrueFlash technology changes how storage works and is delivered by lowering flash costs, increasing storage density and increasing flash performance while shortening the time to market. The new flash storage paradigm is ideally suited for customers in the hyperscale, content delivery and cloud markets that want to move to all-flash environments but have found that current SSD offerings are a constraint.

CHICAGO – ServerCentral introduced its Recover Anywhere managed service powered by Veeam Backup & Replication (part of Veeam Availability Suite). Recover Anywhere is a fully managed service that enables customers to use any infrastructure or cloud platform as the restore point for their applications, data and servers. That means customers can restore data on-demand to their on-premise infrastructure, a ServerCentral Enterprise or Private Cloud, a Managed Amazon Web Services (AWS) solution, or another other cloud provider.

“People often neglect recovery. But backing up is just one part of the equation, it doesn’t do you much good if you can’t recover,” said Tom Kiblin, VP of Managed Services at ServerCentral. “We want organizations to be as confident in the recovery as they are in their backup. RTO/RPO shouldn’t be unknowns or even variables. They should be certainties.”


Everything accessible to everyone, 24x7x365, is now the minimum business requirement and Recover Anywhere is designed to keep customers always-on, regardless of their application architecture or cloud platforms. With Recover Anywhere, ServerCentral’s Managed Services team works with customers to guarantee their recovery time and point objectives (RTO and RPO) are defined and met on an application by application basis, and that their destinations for recovery and restore can meet the changing nature of their business.

“Hybrid cloud environments are the norm today, but the increased criticality and sprawl of data introduces new challenges to maintaining an always-on digital experience,” said Matt Kalmenson, Vice President of Sales and Service Provider Sales, Americas, at Veeam. “ServerCentral’s approach to availability goes beyond backup, leveraging intelligent approaches to data management and the managed service expertise needed to make Hyper-Availability a reality. We are pleased to have ServerCentral as a partner in our effort to solve the key challenges of our joint customers.”

The Recover Anywhere service includes:

  • Complete configuration & administration by ServerCentral’s Managed Services experts
  • Backup, retention and restore processes and schedule designed around customer requirements
  • Support for applications, data and complete server environments
  • Quarterly review of backup and retention schedule and processes
  • Annual testing of application, data and server restore processes

Recover Anywhere is part of ServerCentral’s Managed Backup & Recovery Service portfolio, all of which are configured, administered, monitored, and supported by the ServerCentral Managed Services team. ServerCentral works with customers to understand their data protection needs and configure the service parameters to support their unique business, financial, and technological requirements. Customers can adjust the frequency of backups, retention policy, encryption methods, data locations and restore processes to fit these requirements.
