BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- Panthera Technologies, a professional service organization providing business strategy and technology consulting, today announced that it has expanded the breadth and depth of its cloud offerings. Panthera Technologies is now providing a full suite of cloud-based business solutions, including virtual desktops, secure and compliant cloud servers, disaster recovery and backup as a service, all powered by Cirrity, a secure cloud solutions provider.
"In order to succeed today, businesses must be agile and responsive, and cloud-enabled technologies fulfill those needs," said J. Todd Jennings, President and CEO of Panthera Technologies. "With the ability to quickly provision virtual desktops that provide anytime, anywhere access for a mobile workforce, plus the assurance that mission-critical data is protected and available should a disaster occur, companies can focus on their business rather than worrying about technology."
Panthera Technologies' virtual desktops, known as Desktops as a Service (DaaS), allow employees to access Windows desktops, applications and proprietary programs from anywhere, using any device. It's easy to provide temporary, contract and mobile workforces with a secure, fully managed virtual desktop. With DaaS, powered by VMware Horizon DaaS®, corporate data is not retained on the employee endpoint.
In case of a disaster, DaaS can play an important role in business continuity. Employees do not have to be physically present at the office to be able to access their desktops and conduct business.
With Panthera Technologies' secure, compliant cloud servers, companies can create a hybrid or full cloud compute environment that reduces expensive hardware upgrades and improves security and access. Panthera's cloud is protected with Veeam® Software and built on enterprise-class hardware with a Cisco/NetApp FlexPod platform that exceeds industry standards for security and compliance, providing the confidence for companies to operate securely in the cloud.
This secure, reliable cloud technology is the backbone of vStream, a real-time, cloud-based disaster recovery solution, powered by Zerto. Leveraging VMware's leading-edge Hypervisor technology, vStream uses a secure, encrypted connection to continuously replicate data to the cloud, ensuring that should a company's physical location be damaged, the business can continue operations.
The company will offer backup as a service powered by Veeam. The service, which includes backup to the cloud, eliminates the capital cost of hardware and software for backup while meeting compliance and security mandates in fields such as healthcare, financial services and e-commerce.
Panthera Technologies continues to set the standard for application development, managed services, system infrastructure design and comprehensive security services.
Panthera Technologies is an experienced professional services organization providing business strategy and technology consulting for small to mid-sized companies. Panthera Technologies enables companies to scope, define, and implement application and infrastructure solutions that help drive new revenue streams, increase operational efficiency and improve customer loyalty.

Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers ...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
