In this exclusive VMblog video interview as part of our KubeCon + CloudNativeCon US 2023 coverage, we speak with Edward Vielmetti, Developer Partner Manager at Equinix.

Watch as we learn more about Equinix and their technology offerings and what they have planned for KubeCon attendees. Hear about the problems they solve, how they are unique, and what big trends and themes they are interested in as we head into 2024.

Equinix has 250 data centers in 71 metros around the world. Historically, Equinix has been in the colo business, but since the launch of Equinix Metal back in 2020 they've been becoming more "cloudy". Think of it as wrapping APIs around our data centers so you can now provision a bare metal server (and more) in 25 of those metros in about 2 minutes!

Through their cloud on-ramps and network peering, they are partnered with all major cloud providers. Further, Kubernetes is a workload that they've seen customers run on Equinix Metal. They have tools (SDKs and IaC) to help you provision metal in a cloud-like approach with hourly and monthly billing.

VeeamON 2023, the highly anticipated annual event organized by Veeam Software, took place last week in the beautiful city of Miami, Florida. This gathering brought together industry professionals, IT experts, and technology enthusiasts to explore the latest advancements, trends, and solutions in data management, backup, and recovery. The event was filled with insightful sessions, engaging discussions, and interactive demonstrations.

May 24, 2023

In this exclusive VeeamON 2023 video interview, VMblog sits down with Rick Vanover, senior director of product strategy at Veeam.

During our discussion, Rick explores the top picked breakout sessions as voted by VeeamON attendees: Microsoft 365, cloud, and ransomware. And then dives into the topic of ransomware, cybersecurity, and recovery. Rick also goes into more detail about the new upcoming inline detection capability, what it is and why it is important.

In this exclusive VeeamON 2023 video interview, VMblog sits down with Shiva Pillay, the GM and SVP of Americas at Veeam, to discuss his new role of taking over the Americas. Prior to this change, Pillay was in charge of the AsiaPac and Japan (APJ) region for Veeam. Now, he will bring that same level of energy and success to the Americas.

Pillay tells VMblog that companies are facing many challenges in keeping their business running today. It is a far more complex IT environment that encompasses the cloud, SaaS and on-premises resources. At the same time, there’s a growing threat from cyberattacks as ransomware attacks continue to rise in frequency, affecting many organizations at least once. Veeam is focused on helping customers keep their business running by protecting their data and if the worst happens, helping them to recover rapidly.

May 24, 2023

In this exclusive VeeamON 2023 interview, VMblog sits down with Dave Russell, the VP of Enterprise Strategies at Veeam, to discuss the new Veeam 2023 Ransomware Trends Report which was released during the event.

Looking at the ransomware trends, there is bad news and even worst news. As an example, according to the data in the report, one in seven organizations will see almost all (80%) data affected as a result of a ransomware attack - pointing to a significant gap in protection.

And paying the ransom does not ensure recoverability either. According to the study, while 59% paid the ransom and were able to recover data, 21% paid the ransom yet still didn't get their data back from the cyber criminals. Additionally, only 16% of organizations avoided paying ransom because they were able to recover from backups.

Russell discusses other study findings, and hopes that these findings help raise awareness across the industry. Veeam continues to add features and functionality into their products to help.

One other area of discussion that is important to consider is cyber insurance. What's interesting to note here is that while many companies have taken out and used cyber insurance in the past to help pay a ransom, many will find that this type of insurance may be going away.

This week, Nashville played host to the annual DISRUPT23 conference, a gathering of IT professionals, industry experts, and vendors, all eager to learn more about the latest developments in endpoint management and security. As usual, the event did not disappoint - offering a number of exciting announcements and updates that promise to change the way we think about endpoint management.

April 07, 2023

DISRUPT is back. Bigger, better and braver than ever before. And this year, they are saying YES. YES to the single most important EUC event of the year - bringing together the leading disruptors of the EUC universe. The event is in Nashville, TN, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center Nashville.

In this VMblog exclusive video interview, we sit down with Matthias Haas, the CTO of IGEL Technology, to discuss a number of important industry topics, what IGEL has been up to, and we take a deeper look into the DISRUPT23 event. A few months ago, IGEL announced it was exiting the hardware business to focus on software. As part of that decision, IGEL has enhanced their partnerships with the leading hardware vendors, HP, LG, and Lenovo, who will take on the hardware role.

IGEL will instead focus on the software, i.e. IGEL OS and the new IGEL COSMOS. COSMOS enables the flexibility needed in the EUC industry. It's a cloud-based management platform for IGEL OS-powered endpoints, such as thin clients and convertibles. It enables IT administrators to easily manage and secure their endpoints from a central location, providing remote support and troubleshooting, device monitoring, and the ability to deploy software and updates across a large number of endpoints. Additionally, IGEL Cosmos provides analytics and reporting capabilities, which can help organizations optimize their endpoint infrastructure and improve user productivity.

Continuing along the theme of flexibility, Matthias talks about the onboarding process when an end user unboxes the device, turns it on, and answers four simple questions and the device gets fully configured and drops to the desktop or browser to access your modern applications.

Over the course of the show, Matthias talked with a lot of partners and customers at the DISRUPT event and their feedback was clear - everyone is excited to meet again in person, share knowledge, and do so at an industry event like this.

Finally, Matthias takes on the question of "what is the future of VDI and DaaS?" Hear his take on this highly debated topic.

April 07, 2023

DISRUPT is back. Bigger, better and braver than ever before. And this year, they are saying YES. YES to the single most important EUC event of the year - bringing together the leading disruptors of the EUC universe. The event is in Nashville, TN, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center Nashville.

In this VMblog exclusive video interview, we sit down with Jason Mafera, Field CTO, North America at IGEL, to discuss a number of important topics that were being raised throughout the two day event.

Jason talks about securing the edge, the interface between the users and their workloads and applications as things move to the cloud. Organizations are also undertaking a huge transition, as they look to move Windows to the cloud where they can gain better security, better manageability, and potentially make things more cost effective. And, provide a better way to recover in the event that something goes wrong. Jason also digs into some of the trends taking shape in the EUC space. And one of the hot topics discussed during the DISRUPT keynote - a focus on sustainability and the idea of reduce, recycle, and reuse, and how IGEL is helping to make that happen.

One of the big announcements at DISRUPT was centered around IGEL COSMOS, a unified, agile platform to securely manage and automate the delivery of digital workspaces, from any cloud. Offering a modular architecture, granular endpoint control and end-user freedom, COSMOS is designed to enable organizations to garner the full power of current-day and future clouds with extensive control, while powering great user experiences for today's hybrid work.
