Project Monterey

At VMworld® 2020, we announced that we are collaborating with VMware, Inc. on Project Monterey to co-develop a platform to support the shifting requirements of next-generation applications.

What is Project Monterey?

Project Monterey is a re-architecture of VMware Cloud Foundation to support the new, rapidly evolving requirements of next-gen applications.  As application requirements for compute continue to grow, Project Monterey takes advantage of accelerators like the Pensando Distributed Services Platform, to offload the main server CPU, freeing up precious CPU cycles and bringing key services such as networking and security, closer to where applications actually run and operate on data.

This is essential to address the needs of new application types such as those found in Cloud Native, Multi-Cloud, Telco, 5G, Machine Learning, Data Centric, and Hybrid environments.

Elastic

Elastic Integration:

Pensando ensures that any customer can easily build on the power of their existing Elastic environment by providing integrated access to data available from the Pensando Distributed Services Platform.  Pensando/Elastic integration supports the ingestion of IPFIX and Syslog records gathered by the platform from hosts deployed with a Pensando Distributed Services Card (DSC), or from each Aruba CX 10000 with Pensando Distributed Services Switch (DSS), a new class of data center switch that makes telemetry an integral part of the network fabric. 

Pensando/Elastic integration tracks data for every server, supporting both Network and Security Operations to identify issues early on before they grow.  The workload-to-workload data gathered allows operations teams to immediately identify issues within the data center and find solutions in real-time.

The Pensando/Elastic combination is ideal for application performance optimization, network design and management, security threat management, and Identifying unmanaged/underutilized resources.

Guardicore

Guardicore Integration:

The collaboration between the Pensando Distributed Services Platform and Guardicore’s Centra Security Platform excels at addressing two problems currently affecting data centers: the increase in security risks as companies deploy greater numbers and more varied types of applications, and the complexity of managing the  security rules that are needed for each application as workloads grow and shift in real time.

These challenges  are uniquely addressed with the Pensando platform’s pervasive observability and firewall capabilities delivering comprehensive network/workload telemetry to Guardicore Centra, which then  automates security rules by automatically discovering applications and flow patterns, and delivering to the Pensando platform a set of firewall rules to enforce flow security.

The Pensando Distributed Services Card and the Aruba CX 10000 with Pensando Distributed Services Switch are ideally positioned to allow East/West security to scale along with applications. Integration with the Guardicore Centra Platform allows security policies to update as the services themselves are updated, simplifying provisioning and freeing expensive x86 hardware/software resources.
