Weekly CloudNews: NetApp, Aviatrix and Rackspace


Welcome to this week’s edition of CloudBolt’s Weekly CloudNews!

Earlier this week on our blog, we looked at the four things organizations should seek in a cloud orchestration platform and highlighted some can’t-miss hybrid cloud sessions at next week’s Microsoft Ignite conference in Orlando.

Speaking of Ignite, if you’re headed out to the show next week, we’d love to see you. Sign up for some time to chat with us about your hybrid cloud management and orchestration needs here.

With that, onto this week’s news:

NetApp Introduces Keystone: Simplifying Storage For Hybrid, Multi-Cloud World

Joseph Kovar, CRN, Oct., 29 2019

“NetApp Tuesday introduced NetApp Keystone, which the company said simplifies the acquisition of data storage and management technology whether for on-premises data centers or in the cloud.
NetApp Keystone, unveiled on the opening day of this week’s NetApp Insight 2019 conference, allows customers to purchase their on-premises and cloud-based storage capabilities without worrying about future requirements by allowing data to be migrated as needed across on-premises, private clouds or public clouds, and either purchased outright or on a consumption model, NetApp said.”

CRV leads $40M round into cloud networking and security startup Aviatrix

Maria Deutscher, Silicon Angle, Oct. 28, 2019

“Cloud management startup Aviatrix Systems Inc. today announced that it has raised a $40 million funding round led by Charles River Ventures to launch a new growth push.

Five-year-old Aviatrix will use the capital to add staff across its sales, product development, customer support and other core teams. The investment comes about two months after the startup moved into a bigger office in Santa Clara, California, to accommodate planned workforce expansions.

Aviatrix provides a suite of networking and security services for enterprise cloud environments. The toolkit works across all the major infrastructure-as-a-service-service platforms, which allows companies that use multiple clouds to centralize management operations in one interface instead of handling the administration of each deployment separately.”

Rackspace security alliance with Armor aims for hybrid cloud

Spencer Smith and John Moore, SearchITChannel, Oct. 25 2019

“A new Rackspace security deal with Armor aims to attract mid-market and low-end enterprise customers looking to shore up their hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

The San Antonio-based managed cloud services company plans to integrate Armor’s technology into its portfolio of security services. Armor, a security-as-a-service provider, will contribute its Armor Anywhere platform, which includes intrusion detection, vulnerability scanning, patch monitoring, log management and threat hunting among other tools and capabilities. The integration of Armor into Rackspace security services will be available for customers across major private and public cloud platforms in 2020, according to Rackspace.”
