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 works alongside Elastic to integrate the Pensando Distributed Services Platform to provide access to data on the Elastic platform. Every host that utilizes the Pensando Distributed Services Card has the ability to support both IPFIX and Syslog records gathered by the platform.

The integration supports both Network and Security Operations to identify issues early on before they grow. The Pensando card tracks data in every server which exposes the data between each workload of each server and even within the same server. This allows the Pensando DSC to immediately identify issues within the workloads and help find a solution in real time.

Pensando’s DSC has various different use cases. These include, Application Performance Optimization, Network Design and Management, Security Threat Management, and to Identify Unmanaged/Underutilized Resources.

Company Summary:

Elasticsearch was founded in 2000 in a London Apartment by Shay Banon. He wanted to create a search engine for his wife’s list of recipes. After a few interactions of his app, he ended up making Elasticsearch open source and waited for users to give input on his app. Through the community, Banon was joined by Steven Schuurman, Uri Boness, and Simon Willnauer. 

In 2015, during Elastic{ON} the company was officially rebranded to Elastic and teamed up with Found, who helped manage Elastic on Amazon Web Services. On October 5th, 2018 Elastic was officially part of the New York Stock Exchange.

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 first problem being the increase in security risks as companies deploy more various type of applications. The second problem is the varying amount of security rules that are needed for each application and how to tackle each unique set.

The problem with increased security risks is solved using the Pensando DSP which allows network services to offload and isolate critical functions that are currently being done by the server hardware and software. The second problem is solved via the Guardicore CSP which automates the process by automatically discover applications and flow, including process-to-process communication and creating contextual maps to help understand the activity.

The problem with security grew after the shift from North/South traffic patterns to a virtualized/distributed application environment. This forced a shift in the pattern resulting in a few challenges. These include new modifications to the networking layers, re-insertion of security, increased latency, and firewall “hotspots”. The Pensando platform solves these problems by separating security functions from the x86 environment, operating system, or hypervisor, and utilizing the advantages of a dedicated security appliance at the server edge, for optimal scale and efficiency.

Company Summary:

Guardicore is a segmentation company with the main goal of disrupting the legacy firewall market. They follow a software only approach which is separate from the physical network resulting in a faster alternative to firewalls. Their service offers greater security and visibility in the cloud, data-center and endpoint.
