Here are the five most downloaded podcasts for the month of April in the year two thousand and seventeen.
It’s an interesting mix of topics, including Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), object storage (I wouldn’t have predicted a storage topic to crack the top 5), a sponsored security show, and an earnest debate about the value of Cisco’s most well-known industry certification.
Today’s Weekly Show explores the technology of NFV, business drivers & use cases, and how it differs from SDN. Our guest is Jeff Doyle.
For many years, the CCIE has been the gold standard of certifications among network engineers. Recently, there has been a backlash against the cert by some, as Cisco has taken heat for increased pricing, an excessively difficult routing & switching written qualification exam, and a tendency towards a Cisco-centric way of looking at networking. The question we raise today: Is the CCIE fading in value?
In today’s sponsored podcast we talk with Illumio about its Adaptive Security Platform. Illumio’s approach is to drive filtering and enforcement using adaptive segmentation technology that adjusts security policies in real time to changes in your network. Illumio can also help eliminate blind spots and improve security operations and threat response.
Today’s Weekly Show is an AMA (Ask Me Anything). Greg and Ethan reached out to listeners and solicited questions, and listeners responded. In fact, we got so many questions that we’re splitting them into a two-part series. Part one takes listener questions on professional development, staying relevant, and career regrets and successes. (You can find Part 2 here.)
Today on the Datanauts it’s object storage. Object storage is easily accessible, highly scalable, and underpins many cloud and online applications and services. Our guest sailor across the sea of object storage is Enrico Signoretti, head of product strategy at OpenIO and a well-known analyst and blogger at Juku.
Thanks to our audience for another good month! Your ears and attention make all our podcasts possible, and it’s nice to know we aren’t just talking to ourselves.
