Migrating from a physical Data Center to a virtual Data Center requires best practices for deploying virtualized Oracle databases. This white paper will illustrate EMC IT’s framework for deploying virtualized Oracle databases, including both business supporting and mission critical applications, which will become a foundational for the “as-a-Service” cloud deployment model. This paper illustrates EMC IT’s approach by showing its Oracle Virtual Deployment Framework powered by Intel® Xeon®. This framework answers the questions of when and what to deploy using Oracle virtual deployment models based upon two key business service levels of availability (99.9 to 99.999 %) and scalability (from 1 CPU to N CPUs). These models make virtual deployment models of Oracle simplified, accelerated and give cost savings, consolidation and efficiency to EMC IT operations and infrastructure.

Cycle.io’s Low-Ops Developer Platform Adds NVIDIA GPU Support

Cycle.io | August 04, 2022

Cycle.io, an up-and-coming low-ops application deployment platform, is thrilled to announce the support for NVIDIA’s data center-class line of GPUs. This enhancement of the platform enables developers to build GPU-accelerated applications which require a high level of computing power for scientific and engineering purposes: One Platform With Batteries Included: Cycle provides all the necessary features development teams need to deploy, scale, and monitor everything from basic websites to complex SaaS and PaaS applications. Multi-Cloud Container Orchestration: Enables developers to use the tools and technologies they’re already familiar with across multiple cloud providers in parallel. Ultra-Current Infrastructure With Control: Organizations are able to maintain control and ownership of their infrastructure while the Cycle platform ensures that all servers are always current, with the latest updates being deployed on a semi-weekly basis. Turnkey Team Collaboration: Easily add and remove developers from your team, and infrastructure, all with a few clicks. Cycle makes it easy for developers to gain observability over the individual components that make up today’s modern applications. The launch of Cycle’s GPU support coincides with Vultr’s release of their new GPU-line of cloud servers, built upon the NVIDIA A100 GPU. Vultr, a leading independent provider of cloud infrastructure, provides both virtualized and bare-metal cloud infrastructure across 20 regions globally. Through the Cycle.io and Vultr partnership, developers can easily deploy performance-sensitive, GPU-dependent applications at a price point that makes sense for all use cases. “Because of the additional power of a massively parallel architecture, GPUs make it possible to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, giving developers more compute power. There is a growing need for GPU parallel processing by developers of AI and Machine Learning big-data intensive solutions. With containers, this has been very difficult for the architect. But with our new partnership alongside Vultr, Cycle is making this simple to do for developers.” Jake Warner, CEO, and Founder of Cycle.io. “We greatly value our partnership with Cycle. Now that Vultr is offering VMs and bare metal accelerated with NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, customers can use Cycle and Vultr together to easily run containers for deep learning, high-performance computing, and data analytics workloads,” said J.J.

Apiiro Launches Partner Program to Help Customers Fix Cloud-Native Application Risks Faster

Apiiro | June 03, 2022

Apiiro, the leader in Cloud-Native Application Security, today announced the Apiiro Partner Program, which provides comprehensive support for technology, consulting, and reseller partners across the Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) ecosystem. In the era of cloud-native application development, the remediation lifecycle is getting longer and more complex because risks are distributed across the design, code, open source packages, infra-as-code, containers, Git and CI/CD servers, and cloud infrastructure. In addition, the shift in responsibilities and the use of a multitude of tools, each addressing only a small subset of cloud-native application risks has reduced the overall efficacy with noisy alerts and false-positives due to the lack of context. Context from cloud infrastructure to code and Software Bill Of Materials visibility (SBOM) are instrumental for the remediation process across the software supply chain. Partners like Alacrinet, Defy Security, Google Cloud, HashiCorp, NetSPI, NXGN, Parabellyx, and Trace3 from the cloud-native application security, DevOps, cloud infrastructure security, and other cybersecurity industries are joining the Apiiro Partner Program to work together to help customers remediate cloud-native application risks across the software supply chain. Partners will benefit from the Apiiro Risk Graph technology and enabling resources to speed customer adoption and success with a contextual shift left risk remediation technology. "Our customers aren't just modernizing their cloud-native application security - they're reinventing the way they develop, build, and deploy cloud-native applications across the software supply chain. By uniting in the Apiiro Partner Program, Apiiro and our partners can collectively ensure cloud-native applications are developed and delivered in a secure manner." John Leon, VP of Business Development at Apiiro Program benefits include training materials and sales resources, access to technical evaluation demos and documentation to enable go to market and joint promotion opportunities. By enrolling in the Apiiro Partner Program, partners can increase their value to customers by delivering contextual shift left risk remediation before releasing to the cloud. About Apiiro Apiiro helps security and development teams proactively fix risk across the software supply chain, before releasing to the cloud.

eFraud Services Launches AI Fraud Detection Software

eFraud | June 22, 2022

eFraud Services, the leading provider of financial fraud detection software, today announced the launch of its flagship product eFraud Converter. eFraud Converter is an AI-driven, SaaS-based solution solving the problem of the time-consuming and labor-intensive process of analyzing bank statements. eFraud Converter uses state-of-the-art AI technology to convert pdf images of bank statements into Excel without manual intervention. Once the conversion is complete, users review and correct suspected errors. This is a crucial step because investigators must attest to the accuracy of their reports when testifying in court. eFraud Converter solves the problem for government agencies and businesses that still rely on paper bank statements to uncover fraudulent activity. These include Law Enforcement, Federal, State and Local Governments, Forensic Accountants, Valuation Specialists and Attorneys. Currently, detectives and analysts manually type bank statements into Excel, draining valuable time that should be spent conducting investigations. As an alternative, agencies use software that relies on templates or gridding, manual processes that are labor-intensive. eFraud Converter replaces these processes with Artificial Intelligence. "We reduce the time it takes to analyze bank statements from weeks and months to minutes and hours. With our 'Pay for What You Use' pricing model, any entity can afford to use our application. Since it is browser-based, there is no limit to the number of users who can work concurrently." Barbara Steinberg, CEO About eFraud Barbara Steinberg, CEO, and Robert Hayum, COO, founded eFraud Services Inc. in January 2020. eFraud Services aims to be the provider of choice for any size entity that needs to analyze bank statements quickly, accurately and affordably. eFraud Services is a U.S. company providing fraud detection software to government agencies, law enforcement, forensic accountants and attorneys to help them close more cases in less time with increased efficiency. With feedback from our existing customers, we are developing new applications using Artificial Intelligence to reduce the time it takes to analyze fraud cases by up to 90%.
