CloudPassage recently launched out of “stealth mode”, releasing a formidable one-two punch for securing elastic cloud environments in the form of Halo SVM and Halo Firewall. Punch one, Halo SVM, addresses the specific server vulnerability management needs in cloud server environments, such as elasticity. Customers can maintain continuous exposure and compliance intelligence, even in rapidly growing cloud server farms. Other features include a light footprint and ability to assess thousands of server configuration points in seconds. Punch two, Halo Firewall, controls server attack surfaces by centralizing and automating host-based firewall management, the preferred alternative to traditional enterprise perimeter firewalls, says CloudPasage.
Applying the Linux community's classic flair for maximizing interoperability, Open-Xchange introduced full MAPI support to its completely redeveloped Microsoft Outlook Connector. The move enables users of its open-source Open-Xchange e-mail and collaboration server to use Microsoft Outlook as the client software. The Open-Xchange alternative to the more expensive Microsoft Exchange server integrates e-mail, calendar, contact and task management with advanced groupware features, such as information management and document sharing, along with cutting-edge social-network integration. While users utilize the familiar client, the new software connector ensures seamless synchronization with Open-Xchange server in the background. The software connector supports Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007, as well as the 32-bit version of Outlook 2010.
Design engineers and OEMs can add intelligent, wireless Ethernet networking to nearly any device by putting to work the new Lantronix PremierWave EN embedded-Linux wireless device server. When incorporated within an OEM product, the PremierWave EN's secure, high-quality wireless connectivity enables businesses across a variety of different industries to transmit medical, financial, customer or other important information across corporate networks securely. The module allows customers to leverage the many advantages offered by the dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n standard, including network load balancing and traffic segmentation. A 32-bit ARM9 processor allows for a potent combination of high performance and low power consumption. Lantronix's proprietary SmartRoam technology ensures uninterrupted connectivity between wireless networks.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
