About a third of Americans are now working from home, more ever than before.  And quite simply, that's due in large part because of COVID-19 and the pandemic that was unleashed across the globe this year. 

In this latest VMblog #WorkFromHome Series, we're exploring what technology means in this current paradigm shift of working remotely.  And in order to do that, we're reaching out to industry experts to help shine a light on the subject.  We're asking these experts to offer up their opinions and advice on what's taking place now and where things go in the future. 

In this Q&A, VMblog connected with industry expert, Nico Zieck, Senior IT Architect at Liquit, to get his opinion on the work from home topic and at the same time, find out more about how Liquit can help companies achieve a positive work from home shift.

THE BIG CHALLENGE

It started with Wi-Fi access and boomed! Then the work life balance generation came on strong, and now COVID-19. Working remotely, although not a new concept for some of us who's role requires travel, has exploded and is now a necessity due to the recent pandemic. Companies went from an average of 80% of their workforce required to operate in an office environment (on-prem), to 100% remote in an instant. IT teams should be commended for facilitating the process so quickly with some having limited resources at their disposal. Nonetheless, the biggest challenge now is that what, companies thought would be a temporary setup is not going away anytime soon. Some Silicon Valley organizations are instructing their workers to work remotely until at least the late Fall timeframe; Google plans on keeping workers remote until as late as October of 2021 and potentially longer.

VMblog speaks with Trentent Tye of ControlUp during the IGEL DISRUPT 2020 event in Nashville, TN.

ControlUp is an ITOps analytics and management platform that helps ITOps teams to monitor, analyze and directly remediate problems in their on-premise, hybrid cloud and cloud infrastructures. ControlUp gives you deep visibility into the back end environment - Citrix/RDS/VMware servers or VDI. This capability provides a lot of information on how an environment is performing on the back end. They can even measure performance down to the application level.

ControlUp integrates into IGEL, providing visibility into the endpoint. This provides the capability to see how the endpoint itself is performing.

VMblog speaks with Brian Martynowicz of LoginVSI during the IGEL DISRUPT 2020 event in Nashville, TN.

LoginVSI and IGEL have partnered and integrated their two products. Login Enterprise (formerly Login PI) is now fully integrated into IGEL OS 11.03.

This integration gives IGEL customers the ability to test from the same hardware and locations of their remote users. Doing this “end-to-end testing” without breaking the chain of trust, will maximize the performance and availability on all IGEL OS-powered endpoints, ensuring application and desktop performance.

VMblog visits the DivvyCloud booth during KubeCon 2019 in San Diego.

DivvyCloud software is designed to be agentless and standalone. You can apply it to any computing environment - public cloud or private software-defined infrastructure. The way DivvyCloud interacts with the host environment and Kubernetes is by way of their respective APIs. DivvyCloud continuously interacts with the APIs to gather information about the state of the hosts and the Kubernetes clusters of interest. These hosts can be Google Cloud, AWS, Azure, or a private data center that can expose infrastructure information via an API.

Once DivvyCloud is set up and targeted at the relevant host and Kubernetes clusters, it starts pulling down data about the environments - servers, security groups, load balancers, network-attached stores, S3 buckets, and any resource that is exposed via an API. This information is then unified into a single data model that represents the infrastructure and represents containment holistically.

VMblog visits the Weaveworks booth during KubeCon 2019 in San Diego.

As the inventors of GitOps, Weaveworks demonstrated how GitOps helps a company manage and build applications on Kubernetes. With Git at the center of the operational model, application developers and cluster operators can easily spin up and manage production ready Kubernetes across different environments.

When a cluster configuration is stored in a Git repository, you can then use GitOps to recreate clusters in a predictable way. This brings advantages for building test environments and pipelines, and for reproducing clusters across teams with the same base configuration, or in improving your disaster recovery capability.

VMblog visits the Kasten booth during KubeCon 2019 in San Diego.

Kasten is tackling Day 2 data management challenges to help enterprises confidently run applications on Kubernetes. Kasten K10, a data management platform purpose-built for Kubernetes, provides enterprise operations teams an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup/restore, disaster recovery, and mobility with unparalleled operational simplicity.
