SUSE | February 09, 2023
On February 8, 2023, SUSE, a provider of innovative, open, and secure enterprise-grade solutions, introduced the SUSE Adaptive Telco Infrastructure Platform (ATIP), an edge computing platform optimized for telco. ATIP allows telecom companies to enhance and future-proof network modernization. It accomplishes this by employing an open and adaptable infrastructure that is adjusted for telco-grade performance and simplifies operations at scale.
Unlike current solutions on the market, the platform is designed from the ground up for the telco edge. As a result, it ensures quick rollouts with a highly scalable and programmable infrastructure management solution. As Europe's largest open-source infrastructure software market firm, the company developed this platform in close collaboration with major European telco operators such as Deutsche Telekom, Telecom Italia, Orange, Telefonica, and others.
ATIP packages critical infrastructure components such as Linux, Kubernetes, security, and management tools in a customizable form, allowing telco operators to adapt it quickly for a wide range of use cases across mobile and fixed networks. Moreover, because it supports a wide range of hardware, operators can reduce risk by utilizing their existing infrastructure. Its modularity and flexibility are designed to support and enable forward-thinking cloud frameworks like LF Europe's Sylva.
Its operating system layer offers low latency, real-time performance, and a quick data path to provide telco-grade performance. The Kubernetes layer ensures performance-sensitive applications run efficiently, while SUSE NeuVector offers total lifecycle container security. Rancher Prime, a leading Kubernetes management solution renowned for its convenience, robustness, and exceptional user experience, powers the platform. SUSE has also adjusted Rancher Prime for optimized telco use cases.
Nuremberg-based SUSE is a pioneer in innovative, secure, and dependable enterprise-grade open-source solutions, with over 60% of the Fortune 500 relying on it to power mission-critical workloads. It specializes in enterprise container management, business-critical Linux, and edge solutions. Working with partners and communities, the company enables customers to innovate anywhere, from data centers to the cloud. Its open-source solutions offer customers the agility to address innovation challenges today while also allowing them to evolve their strategy and solutions for the future.

Rambus | February 02, 2023
On February 1, 2023, Rambus Inc., a provider of chip and silicon IP that make data faster and safer, announced that its new 6400 MT/s DDR5 Registering Clock Driver (RCD) is now available and sampling for major DDR5 memory module (RDIMM) manufacturers.
The Rambus Gen3 6400 MT/s DDR5 Registering Clock Driver provides a 33% increase in data rate and bandwidth over the Gen1 4800 MT/s solutions, enabling data center servers to benefit from a new level of main memory performance. In addition, it offers streamlined timing parameters for increased RDIMM margins while providing industry-leading latency and power.
Rambus DDR5 memory interface chips, consisting of the RCD, Temperature Sensors, and Signal Presence Detect (SPD) Hub, are essential for cutting-edge servers to achieve a new level of performance. More intelligence is incorporated into the RDIMMs with DDR5 memory, allowing for over 2x the data rate and 4x the capacity of DDR4 RDIMMs, while simultaneously enhancing memory and power efficiency.
Rambus is highly regarded for its signal integrity (SI) and power integrity (PI) knowledge, With over 30 years of experience in high-performance memory. This expertise enables DDR5 memory interface chips to transmit command/address and clock signals from the host memory device to the RDIMMs with superior signal integrity.
Sean Fan, Chief Operating Officer at Rambus, explained, "Data center workloads have an insatiable thirst for greater memory bandwidth and capacity, and our mission is to advance the performance of server memory solutions that meet this need for each new server platform generation." He added, "We were first in the industry to 5600 MT/s, and now we have raised the bar with our Gen3 DDR5 RCD capable of 6400 MT/s to support a new generation of RDIMMs for server main memory."

Lacework | February 27, 2023
Lacework, the data-driven cloud security company, recently announced that Verifone, a global leader in FinTech and payment solution provider to the world's biggest brands, has chosen the Lacework Polygraph Data Platform to secure its cloud infrastructure as it moves to a cloud-native DevSecOps model.
Verifone processes 12+ billion transactions annually, roughly 46% of the world's non-cash payments. Due to the significant number of transactions processed, the company required a dedicated cloud-native security platform.
Luke Clinch, Global Director of Infrastructure, Verifone, said, "With Lacework's behavioral ML-led approach, we'll dramatically reduce security alerting while automating key audit data delivery so that we can focus on the secure development of new products for our customers. The Polygraph Data Platform will completely transform the way our security team works."

Verifone, using the Polygraph Data Platform, will take advantage of the Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). This will reduce several point tools and help the organization eliminate and detect vulnerabilities in multi-cloud configuration, Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC), containers, Kubernetes, applications, and their dependencies. To automate audit and compliance processes, the Verifone security team will use Polygraph Platform compliance assessments and continuous posture. Lacework integrates easily with DevOps and CI/CD pipelines, helping Verifone make security a build-time priority and advance its DevSecOps model.
Lacework is a premier Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). Lacework can gather, analyze, and reliably correlate data across an organization's Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, and Kubernetes environments without manually creating rules and reducing them to the few security incidents that matter. DevOps teams around the globe trust Lacework to secure cloud-native applications across the lifecycle ranging from code to cloud.
