Configuration Management (CM) refers to the process of handling configuration changes that ensure configuration consistency over time. In the dark corners of the server room, we call this “snowflake avoidance”. Configuration Management establishes a single source of truth for a set of configuration management item(s).

Building a Hybrid Cloud with VMware Cloud…

IT administrators have been hearing about the hybrid cloud for what feels like eternities. You hear it discussed at conferences like VMworld, read about it in product guides and blogs (like this one), and even see it in commercials on television. You understand the reality of a multi-cloud world and see the benefits of deploying The post Building a Hybrid Cloud with VMware Cloud Foundation and Hybrid Cloud Extension appeared first on Cloud Foundation .

VMware’s PowerCLI — a module on top of PowerShell — is a powerful tool for administrators managing complex environments. With a few PowerCLI cmdlets, admins can enable vSphere automation by making migration and configuration tasks easier via a programmatic interface.

Learning Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX) Part 2:…

I recently attended a cloud migration session. The first thing the speaker said was “we want you to migrate to the Cloud, but we don’t care how you do it”. There was no discussion of service level agreements (SLA), dependencies, or migration options, only get to the cloud! Before migrating any workload, it’s important to […] The post Learning Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX) Part 2: Migration Types appeared first on emadyounis.com .

Radar against Ransomware: how Rubrik stops the threats

One of the last innovation in Rubrik, a lot I’ve to say, is a feature built over Polaris, the new SaaS solution presented a few months ago.

The technology used to empower this weapon is machine learning based on models that evolve following behaviours met on the protected VM and by that users.

Ransomware is the main target, Radar can recover in a bunch of seconds all the volumes affected.

Evolution of Ransomware attacks are followed by evolution of Radar itself, thanks to that evolving models. The intelligence applied to these attacks is reinforced and supported by several actions, like analysis of the data running inside the whole environment, identifying strange behaviours (out of the previous mentioned models), detection of these anomalies through a continuous monitoring of the environment and users behaviour – monitoring is mainly focused on metadata in order to be more reactive and fast in detecting the anomalies, and last, recover the affected data easily and quickly, with no (or minor) loss.

I still didn’t have a chance to put personally my hands on the solution, but following some webinars and blog post I was seriously interested in going deep inside the topic. What excites me is the intelligence applied to detection of the attacks, not simply adopting schemes, models, but modifying them according to behaviour, either of the attack and of the users. Machine learning and artificial intelligence were always attracting me, setting myself a little bit closer to my beloved Sci-Fi books and movies.

Automation is another point of attention. Today APIs are used for every single device, included domestic appliances. In this case they come to help for several tasks, from monitoring to manage an adequate reaction workflow to prevention, not necessarily in this order.

Once again Rubrik isn’t simply a backup solution. With Radar it become one important and active component of the enterprise security stack.
