Synopsys and AMD enter partnership
Synopsys and AMD have announced a new multi-year partnership. The agreement will allow AMD to utilize Synopsys’ ZeBu Server 4 emulation system, thus accelerating verification of AMD’s high-performance processor, graphics, and gaming projects. Synopsys will also optimize its ZeBu and VCS software to run on AMD’s processor-based servers.

“Collaborating with market makers at the leading edge of innovation has been our strategy for many years,” said Rajiv Maheshwary, vice president of marketing and business development in the Verification Group at Synopsys. “AMD and Synopsys continue to collaborate to evolve emulation technology to enable earlier engagement with AMD customers. We are looking forward to our next chapter which will include optimizing ZeBu and VCS software for AMD’s EPYC servers.”

Sysdig reveals integration of Falco with Fluent Bit
Sysdig has announced an integration of Falco with Fluent Bit. This will allow AWS users to stream Falco security data into AWS FireLens to provide a simplified log management experience.

Falco is an open-source project created by Sysdig and now maintained by the CNCF. AWS reached out to Sysdig and asked them to write this integration. Key benefits of the integration are simplified log management, accelerated incident response, and compliance records.

“We are in the final frontier when it comes to Kubernetes innovation. Security is the last area that still requires work from the community. Falco is leading the charge in standardizing Kubernetes security,” said Kris Nova, chief open source advocate at Sysdig. “AWS asked Sysdig to join the FireLens preview program because AWS values Falco’s ability to secure cloud-native environments. By integrating with FireLens, we hope to make it easier for all organizations to develop in the cloud, secure in the cloud, audit in the cloud, no matter their approach.”
