Sondrel Takes Security to New Level

Sondrel, one of the world’s leading system-to-silicon IC design consultancies, is employing secure border computing technology from Zentera Systems to ensure IP protection with the minimum of impact on its customers’ IT infrastructure. Zentera's Hybrid Cloud Technologies enable IP to be securely accessed from diverse worldwide locations, ensuring that the best available design resources can be employed to get the project done on time at the best performance. Using Zentera’s secure border computing technology also ensures access to customers’ IP can be subject to detailed control and monitoring.

Sondrel provides outsourced design services to many leading companies and has design centres in multiple locations including the USA, Europe, China, Scandinavia and Israel. The company works in collaborative partnership with its customer base so it is vital that sensitive and valuable IP can be accessed securely and easily. Sondrel wanted to offer additional security assurance to its customers and selected Zentera due to the strength and flexibility of its hybrid cloud solutions.

Sondrel’s CEO, Graham Curren, comments: "Zentera's technology enables us to take security to a new level, strengthening the integration with our customers’ design teams, and enabling efficient project execution. As well as providing complete assurance of IP protection, Zentera's secure border computing environment requires minimal IT overhead, so this solution can be scaled up and down on demand while tightly-controlling access and meeting strict compliance standards.”

"Our technology enables companies like Sondrel to rapidly deploy new secure customer environments that support advanced engineering collaboration requirements", said Jaushin Lee, founder and CEO of Zentera. "This frees them to focus on their design business as the secure, dynamic border environment based on our hybrid cloud virtualization technology does not require any undue effort to maintain.”

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.
DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
