Credit Suisse Launches Virtualization Infrastructure Management Software Company

DynamicOps to Bring Virtual Machine Management Software to Commercial Market

Credit Suisse announced that it is launching an independent company to market an innovative virtual machine management application. The company, DynamicOps, formed in January, 2008, is funded by Credit Suisse’s NEXT II venture group and is located in Burlington, Massachusetts.

Credit Suisse first deployed a virtual infrastructure in 2005, and realized that while virtualization improved resource utilization and business agility, it also increased operational complexity.

VRM was initially developed by Credit Suisse’s Global Research and Development Group, headed by Steve Yatko, managing director. The software has been in production for more than two years and manages thousands of virtual desktops and servers at multiple Credit Suisse data centers in four locations worldwide. The software brings a level of product maturity and capability that is not commonly found in many currently available virtual infrastructure management products.

“In the case where self-provisioning for virtualized servers has been deployed, VRM enabled us to reduce our provisioning lead times from weeks to minutes. This has resulted in more efficient server utilization and lower capital costs,” explained Stephen Hilton, managing director, Enterprise Servers and Storage, Credit Suisse. “An additional benefit is the dramatic improvement in our ability to respond rapidly to business needs.”

"VRM has made desktop virtualization a ‘win-win’ for Credit Suisse. We are able to improve the user experience through rapid service delivery, while maximizing the operational ROI through automation and standardization,” noted Brad Novak, managing director of end user platforms, Credit Suisse.

DynamicOps is led by a strong management team, headed by Rich Krueger, a proven entrepreneur who was previously an executive vice president at Incipient, a storage virtualization company. Krueger also held management roles at LightSpeed Software (acquired by Astoria), EMC, and Conley Corporation (acquired by EMC).

“Forming DynamicOps provides Credit Suisse with the opportunity to realize a return on its software investment, as well as properly form and fund a software organization that can help meet its current and future technology needs, as we continue to roll out our dynamic data center vision,” said Karl Landert, CIO, Credit Suisse.

The company’s software is currently installed in other large IT organizations in financial services as well as other industries. Additional information about DynamicOps or Virtual Resource Manager can be found at www.DynamicOps.com.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
