Dell EMC’s unstructured data portfolio embraces Kubernetes with built-in security at the ECS API level

Modern security measures are layered throughout an organization, with critical asset protection measures implemented as close to the data as possible. As well as protecting closer, the latest generation of security solutions are protecting assets smarter. But there’s one hurdle to overcome: making security simple, so developers will actually build it in.

With the announcement of file and object storage with integrated cyber protection for containerized applications, Dell Technologies Inc. is offering Kubernetes developers a turnkey way to protect unstructured data.

“Control of the data that flows within an organization is important, so having something that’s easy for developers to use in the same paradigm that they’re used to is critical,” said David Noy (pictured, left), vice president of product management at Dell.

Noy and Parasar Kodati (pictured, right), senior consultant of product marketing at Dell, spoke with David Nicholson and Lisa Martin, co-hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, during KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA. They discussed how Dell is addressing developer’s unstructured data needs. (* Disclosure below.)

Automated security removes burden from developers

By expanding its unstructured data portfolio specifically for the Kubernetes community, Dell provides a layer of cyber defense right at the read and write level of the data. The ability to automate mission-critical storage service, replication across data centers, role-based access control authorization, observability to avoid attacks, and resiliency to recover from them are benefits that Dell EMC’s Container Storage Modules (CSM) are gaining.

Predictive analytics make Dell EMC’s ObjectScale more comprehensive than those provided by most object storage vendors, according to Noy.

“We’re able to go and actually infer … that something bad is happening and where we think it’s happening and lock it down even more securely than, for example, just saying, ‘Hey, we provide object lock capabilities,’” he said.

DevOps simplicity comes thanks to security that is embedded in the infrastructure at the Elastic Cloud Storage API level.

“This is something that the developers are getting without having to worry about it,” Kodati said. “So, that’s pretty differentiating in the industry.”
