The main problem with targeted attacks is that they can be difficult (if not impossible) to detect using a standard set of security solutions such as network and host Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems because these systems rely on well known attack signatures, which requires a greater number of known infections than we typically see with these particular attacks. What’s more, targeted attacks can stay undetected for long periods while an attacker is building and maintain an espionage network. That is why they are called Advanced Persistent Threats.
Like most OpenStack Summits, the Austin event opened today with a host of big-name keynote speakers. Unlike previous years, however, the talk was much less about the technology, and more about the world it inhabits and the people who affect it — and are affected by it.
Today at the OpenStack Summit in Austin Mario Müller, corporate director of IT operational services and infrastructure technologies at Volkswagen Group, gave more details of both the “what” and the “why” of this initiative. According to Müller, it’s about cost savings, agility, and self-driving cars.
Mirantis has been working closely with the Foundation and the OpenStack community to develop the COA certification exam. And exam is finally available!
Business partnerships are so often about common marketing activities such as cross-promotion and the publication of joint press releases, but Mirantis is first and foremost a technology company.
To celebrate five years of OpenStack releases and our community, we’ve designed stickers for each release of OpenStack—from Austin all the way through Ocata. At the OpenStack Summit in Austin, where it all began, we have plenty of stickers—and some choice swag— to give away.
We weren’t able to get to all of the questions in our webinar, Ready, Set, Go! Converged Infrastructure and OpenStack Deployments, so here are the ones we weren’t able to get to.
Converged Infrastructure is big business. Companies spend around 20-25% of their IT infrastructure budgets — billions of dollars per year — on Converged Infrastructure. As the world moves to the cloud, Converged Infrastructure offers a similar market opportunity for OpenStack.
On its face, it seems simple. The newest version of OpenStack, Mitaka, includes a Cinder driver that enables users to easily backup data to Google Cloud Storage. No big deal, right?
