Industry executives and experts share their predictions for 2020. Read them in this 12th annual VMblog.com series exclusive.
Just ahead of the start of KubeCon 2019 next week, StackRox is announcing the release of version 3.0 of its StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform. The company is introducing a number of new capabilities with this upgrade, enabling its customers to better harden their Kubernetes and container environments.
Kubernetes is an open-source, extensibility platform. DivvyCloud, a multi-cloud security, compliance, and governance platform, can help companies understand and identify excessive cloud risk. Organizations need to take a holistic approach to Kubernetes security and consider both the infrastructure, container runtime, network, metrics, and observability environments for managing and scaling Kubernetes clusters, as both are fundamentally intertwined.
KubeCon 2019 is shaping up to be a fantastic event! And the number of sponsoring vendors at this year's show is extremely impressive as the show continues to grow in scope and size! One of the companies that will be on VMblog's MUST SEE list this year at the event is Platform9. Platform9 delivers a SaaS-managed hybrid cloud solution that turns existing infrastructure into a cloud, instantly. They help enterprises drive digital transformation by enabling them to manage VMs, Containers and Serverless Functions on ANY infrastructure -- on-premises, in public clouds, or at the edge -- with a self-service, simple and unified experience.

At Citrix Synergy, the Citrix annual user conference which took place last week at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Citrix made several announcements over the course of the three day event. But, the company aimed to make it quite clear that Citrix products should be an ideal option for all users, not just the power users or those in IT. By the end of day one, it was also clear that Citrix was placing a major focus around the Citrix Workspace product. If you haven’t seen it before, Workspace essentially provides an organized view of your available applications, documents, messaging, tasks and more; and provides users with secure access to their Web, SaaS, Windows, Linux and mobile apps.

Carisa Stringer provides a deeper look at some of the Citrix Workspace announcements made at Citrix Synergy. Citrix has added a layer of intelligence into Workspace to take things to the next level. They have also added a new micro app builder into the product to more easily allow users to integrate their applications into the Citrix Workspace environment. Stringer also talks about their work with Microsoft on Office integration, optimizing Teams in a virtual environment, and synchronizing the intelligence to quickly work between the various interfaces, and finally, extending support and benefits to Citrix Workspace with Windows Virtual Desktop capabilities. And Stringer also dives deeper into the explanation of performance analytics now added into Workspace.
