SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HashiCorp, a leader in cloud infrastructure automation, today released the next generation of HashiCorp Terraform Enterprise, software for provisioning cloud-based and on-premises infrastructure using a consistent workflow. The newest features of Terraform Enterprise enable collaboration among practitioners using HashiCorp Terraform and provide governance and policy management capabilities with HashiCorp’s Sentinel policy as code framework. More than 100 organizations participated in the beta which was unveiled at HashiConf 2017 along with Sentinel.

Terraform is broadly used among the Global 2000 to address the challenge of infrastructure provisioning as organizations adopt cloud and deal with heterogeneity, scale, and dependency management of cloud-based infrastructure. Terraform Enterprise focuses on addressing challenges for organization as they scale their provisioning practices across their organization with Terraform. Terraform Enterprise enables teams to collaborate on infrastructure as code for safe and efficient provisioning automation, simple reuse of configuration to enable developers to provision infrastructure to run their applications, and policy as code automation to provide necessary provisioning constraints while not unnecessarily blocking infrastructure provisioning.

“Terraform has enabled us to codify the different functional pieces of our infrastructure using a common configuration language to automate infrastructure provisioning,” said Jay Christopherson, principal engineer, DevOps, Spaceflight. “Terraform Enterprise provides the UI and collaboration workflow for our developers to safely and efficiently provision and update infrastructure quickly and for each phase of their software development— dev, test, and production. This reduces the overall time we spend building systems and rolling out changes and gives us more time to build our products.”

“HashiCorp Terraform is a key component for our DevOps practices as we shift to provision and manage cloud-based infrastructure on AWS,” said Kieran Broadfoot, Hosting CTO, Barclays. “We have been working closely with HashiCorp as a partner and advisor for the Terraform Enterprise product. We look forward to bringing into operation the new capabilities that have been introduced for workspace management, the modernized GUI, comprehensive API, in addition to new features that support both our expert and less experienced IT operators to more effectively manage our infrastructure.”

New features and enhancements in Terraform Enterprise include:

  • Workspace management and new modern and responsive UI: The Terraform Enterprise UI has been redesigned and integrated with Workspaces. Workspaces enable organizations to  decompose infrastructure into modular components that can be delegated and owned by separate teams. This is analogous to having multiple Git repositories which together form a larger application. Workspaces can then match an organization’s permissions structure and be used to delegate granular operational control. The modern and responsive web-based UI enables teams to use Workspaces to safely collaborate on infrastructure configurations.
  • Comprehensive API coverage: Terraform Enterprise provides an API for organizations to integrate with their existing tooling or application delivery pipelines.
  • Provisioning governance with Sentinel policy as code management: When provisioning at scale, it becomes difficult to make sure constraints are in-place to ensure business and security policy are being maintained. Sentinel is integrated into Terraform Enterprise to address these challenges. Organizations can apply Sentinel policies between every Terraform plan and apply to define which actions are allowed and denied.
  • SAML support: This enhances governance and secure sign-on capabilities for organizations using Terraform Enterprise. SAML eliminates all passwords and instead uses standard cryptography and digital signatures to pass a secure sign-in token from an identity provider to Terraform Enterprise.
  • Service accounts: This allows organizations to do service to service API integrations without having to authenticate with an individual user. This is ideal for organizations integrating Terraform into their application delivery pipelines.

“Terraform has seen tremendous adoption globally by helping infrastructure operators with the complexity of provisioning and managing diverse infrastructure,” said Armon Dadgar, founder and co-CTO of HashiCorp. “Terraform Enterprise is a natural extension to the open source version of Terraform and focuses on providing a way for teams of operators to collaborate while providing the necessary policy guardrails these organizations need for their IT infrastructure. The general availability announcement culminates a successful beta phase, where we worked with more than 100 organizations to make sure Terraform Enterprise effectively addresses the requirements for organizations of all sizes and complexities.”

Availability
HashiCorp Terraform Enterprise is generally available today. Terraform Enterprise is available as a SaaS or private install option. The new capabilities in Terraform Enterprise enable infrastructure provisioning at scale for organizations while still maintaining necessary constraints relevant to the business. HashiCorp Terraform addresses three core use cases for organizations adopting cloud: infrastructure as code to automate provisioning, multi-cloud management, and self-service infrastructure from operators for developers to consistently provision infrastructure.

ESS Technology Introduces Suite of USB CODECs featuring Audiophile SABRE DACs

MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ESS Technology, the industry leader in audio and analog design, announced today a series of USB Low-Power Audiophile CODECs that feature QUAD DAC™ Technology. Intended for use in headsets and audio adaptors that demand high-quality sound, the new line of CODECs can support end-to-end audiophile quality.  The family is built around a low-power USB controller that supports USB 1.1 & 2.0, and can handle audio data rates up to 32-bit 384kHz PCM.  At its heart is the legendary SABRE® DAC audio converter with HyperStream® II modulation that provides the ultimate in sound quality and stable sound field. The integrated headphone amp delivers that performance all the way to the headsets with up to 2.0Vrms output voltage, ensuring plenty of headroom for demanding headsets.

The highly-integrated parts also include all the needed blocks to make designing a USB audio system simple, including jack detect, button detection and GPIO inputs/outputs for custom buttons or switches.  Reference designs are available for USB-C audio adaptors and USB-C headsets, and the parts can be easily customized using external EEPROM.

The ES9281PRO is the flagship of the new line and can provide best-in-class audio performance at 124 dB DNR and -112 Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise (THD+N).

The ES9281PRO is the first USB product to offer an integrated hardware MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) renderer that makes MQA playback easy and cost-efficient.  MQA technology is becoming widely accepted as the standard for distributing ultra-high-quality music across a variety of platforms.  The encoding process folds extra information into the signal that can be recovered later.  The subsequent “unfolding” process takes place in two steps: the first unfold, called Core Decoding, can be done on most DSP systems, including software included in smartphone applications.  The final step in the unfolding, called rendering, needs to be done in tight cooperation with the DAC.  The ES9281PRO will automatically detect the MQA stream and engage the rendering; the entire process requires no additional design work.

An integrated Audio Signal Processor (ASP) allows for creating real-time audio filters for use as Active Noise Cancelation (ANC), customized Parametric Equalizer (PEQ), Sidetone, or other filter-based audio effects.

The ES9280PRO offers the same impressive audiophile features as the ES9281PRO but without the MQA rendering. Both products feature a wide range of additional input formats beyond USB.  In addition to the standard microphone support, they feature stereo line input and 8-channel I2S, allowing it to act as USB audio bridge for desktop audio player applications.

The third product in the line, The ES9270, offers a streamlined solution focused on creating high-quality headsets and dongles.  The ES9270 can provide 117 dB DNR and -110 Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise (THD+N) and features the same low-power audio controller as the flagship, without the ASP or I2S bridge.  These parts are ideal for mainstream USB-C headsets and adaptors that still want great sound.

Samples, evaluation boards, and reference designs are available now for all three parts; in addition, the ES9281PRO will be featured for listening in the ESS demo suite at the 2019 CES show in Las Vegas, January 8th – 11th.  For more information, contact your local sales representative.
