Migration, in literal sense, is a relocation of a population to a place usually considered more optimal for that population’s survival or quality of life. Migration may happen periodically or over time and may occur in either direction, to or from a place previously considered home. While this applies mostly to populations of living things, the phenomenon of migrating to the cloud is similar in many ways.

The aim of ReNESENS is to develop solutions for Cloud and Edge data center infrastructure around a new class of processors called DPU (Data Processing Unit) and innovative virtualization and software-defined technologies. The speed, complexity and quantity of data handled by data centers is exploding historically on the Cloud and more recently at the Edge. New classes of equipment are needed based on new hardware and software foundations to provide more efficient, power-optimized, and more open data center infrastructures. The ReNESENS project is bringing together some of the most advanced French companies with unique expertise in the new class of DPU data processors, virtualization software, highly efficient servers and innovative data center architecture; Vates, Clever Cloud, Kalray and 2CRSi. The project intends to develop an innovative and attractive sovereign proposition, for both end users and the ecosystem of data center players. Olivier Lambert, President and Founder of Vates, said: “Data centers are more crucial now than ever before, meaning the need for innovative and very efficient systems management and portability. In this regard, virtualization plays a key role; ReNESENS is a project of strategic importance to develop the next generation of data centers, both at the core and at the Edge. In this project, Vates will work closely with its partners to integrate XCP-ng into Kalray’s DPU architecture and ensure its stack works well with Clever Cloud’s network tools. It will also deliver tightly optimized appliances that combine the best of Kalray, Clever Cloud technologies and 2CSRi’s high-end and Edge computing hardware solutions.” “Innovation is the driving force of 2CRSi. Our contribution to the ReNESENS project is strategic for the group. Working on technology sovereignty is key to success in a disoriented post-COVID world. This project, entirely developed in France with our partners Kalray, Clever Cloud and Vates, will change the course of how we manage and power infrastructure. This solution is designed to solve two major issues of our industry; cloud security and energy savings in the data center environment.” Alain Wilmouth, CEO of 2CRSi Éric Baissus, CEO of Kalray, said: “DPU processors are a game changer for data center infrastructures. They offer a unique opportunity to build more flexible, scalable, energy-efficient solutions. As the European DPU leader, we are delighted to work closely with 2CRSi, Clever Cloud and Vates as part of the ReNESENS project to build the next generation of data center infrastructures.” Quentin Adam, CEO of Clever Cloud, said: “We are pleased to participate in the ReNESENS project, which will lead to the emergence of an innovative network traffic management solution, in both hardware and software, that will improve the technical and energy efficiency of our infrastructures while reducing costs. Clever Cloud will bring all its expertise to this initiative and to its partners 2CRSi, Kalray and Vates.

Lacework Brings Its CNAPP Solution To Google Cloud's Chronicle Security Operations

Lacework | October 27, 2022

Lacework, the data-driven cloud security company, today announced a new integration with Google Cloud's Chronicle Security Operations, bringing its cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) capabilities to Chronicle deployments. By tapping into rich multicloud runtime alerts from the Lacework Polygraph Data Platform, organizations using Chronicle Security Operations gain better insight into cloud threats, helping them understand, respond to, and remediate incidents more effectively than ever before. Lacework fully integrates multicloud runtime telemetry with Chronicle Security Operations. SOC teams that rely on legacy security solutions, which are based on static, manually-written rules, can't keep up with the rate and scale of changes in cloud environments. They are then forced to spend an increasing amount of analyst time and energy sifting through an overwhelming volume of low-context alerts. SOC teams need a modern threat management solution that can keep up with the constantly changing nature of the cloud, and allows them — and their company overall — to operate and innovate effectively at scale. With this integration, organizations using Chronicle Security Operations can now access runtime alerts and anomalous activity from multicloud environments, generated by the Lacework Polygraph Data Platform. The Lacework Polygraph Data Platform uses automation to provide teams with an improved signal-to-noise ratio compared to traditional solutions that are not built for the cloud, without the need for manual intervention. The addition of these high-context alerts allows SOC teams to quicken investigation and remediation, and closes the gap between SOC and security teams by embedding Lacework into security playbooks. "Enterprises transforming their security strategies for the cloud require technologies that easily deliver comprehensive visibility across their multicloud environments, Lacework's integration with Chronicle Security Operations enables organizations to detect and address the right threats via contextual insights that matter the most across their diverse environments." Sunil Potti, VP/GM of Security, Google Cloud Key capabilities of this integration include: Anomaly detections from Lacework, including the cloud control plane, audit logs, cloud, and container instances for Google Cloud, AWS, and Microsoft Azure are all shared with Chronicle Security Operations. Using Chronicle's Universal Data Model parsers, customers can easily onboard this integration within their existing Chronicle instance. Customers will be able to create automation, orchestration and response playbooks using Chronicle SOAR to quickly react to and address issues. "Cloud threats are only becoming more sophisticated over time, so it's critical for security teams to have the right context to make the right decisions to remediate issues quickly," said Jay Parikh, co-CEO, Lacework. "Through our continued partnership with Google Cloud, we're making it easier for joint customers to take advantage of the richness of Lacework data so they can get a better understanding of what's happening across their multicloud environments and continue to innovate with confidence." The Lacework integration with Chronicle Security Operations will be available to organizations via Google Cloud Marketplace About Lacework Lacework is the data-driven security company for the cloud. The Lacework Polygraph Data Platform automates cloud security at scale so our customers can innovate with speed and safety. Only Lacework can collect, analyze, and accurately correlate data across an organization's cloud and Kubernetes environments, and narrow it down to the handful of security events that matter. Customers all over the globe depend on Lacework to drive revenue, bring products to market faster and safer, and consolidate point security solutions into a single platform. Founded in 2015 and headquartered in San Jose, Calif., Lacework is backed by leading investors like Sutter Hill Ventures, Altimeter Capital, D1 Capital Partners, Tiger Global Management, Counterpoint Global (Morgan Stanley), Franklin Templeton, Durable Capital, GV, General Catalyst, XN, Coatue, Dragoneer, Liberty Global Ventures, and Snowflake Ventures, among others.
