From Greek mythology, Kerberos is the ferocious three-headed guard dog of Hades to prevent the dead from leaving.
In computer science, it is a computer-network strong authentication protocol that works on the basis of tickets to allow nodes communicating over a non-secure network to prove their identity to one another in a secure manner. It provides a mutual authentication fro client and services. Kerberos protocol messages are protected against eavesdropping and replay attacks. Kerberos builds on symmetric-key cryptography and requires a trusted third party, and optionally may use public-key cryptography during certain phases of authentication. Kerberos uses UDP port 88 by default.
The Dynamic Workload Console (DWC) has become a core platform for workload automation, providing visibility into everything all in one place.
“The designing of a job stream is a key operation for schedulers and application developers to or interconnect business applications and achieve governance and control,” Zaccone said. “Our idea with the new Workload Designer is to empower what we had and push it to an advanced level to provide everything is needed to our customers.”
CyberArk is an identity and access manager offering a wide set of identity security capabilities. You can use it to submit Workload Automation jobs without specifying any passwords, which are retrieved from the CyberArk vault.
After the biggest launch of Workload Automation 10.0.1 release in 1Q of 2022 (see the Workload automation original Video), what can we expect in 2022? Big news!
Our first release refreshing for Dynamic Workload Console 10.0.1 is ready.
Let’s answer the 5 WH questions.
“Speed defines success in today’s digital economy. With customers expecting flawless digital experiences and competition hovering just a click away, companies turn to cloud-native technologies like microservices, containers and Kubernetes to accelerate innovation, build applications faster and improve performance. However, moving to cloud-native technologies and distributed architectures introduces new challenges around speed, scale, and complexity of data challenges that traditional monitoring solutions simply weren’t designed to handle.
This is where observability comes in.” 
Organizations now are looking towards AI intelligence to help operators avoid manual operations, whether it’s due to the sheer number of alerts that they’re getting that are contributing to “alert fatigue” or the lack of observability of how the organization is working.
Workload Automation can really run anywhere. There is no limit to the number and type of platforms that are now supported. It doesn't matter what kind of environment you have, be it on Virtual Machine, Kubernetes, Docker container or Bare Metal the more complex the topology of your environment becomes the more useful it will be for you to be able to monitor your resources.
HCL Workload Automation is a unified automation platform that covers all angles right from application management, cloud transition, migration, and system integration operation services, thereby facilitating the delivery of more automated and responsive service to drive value to business, end users, and IT.
