Take a Network Break! Dell and EMC dominate this week’s discussion as we dig through the details of this intriguing acquisition.
We cover a story from Wired that calls out several tech giants as the walking dead–perhaps prematurely. We also examine an email from HP CEO Meg Whitman that outlines the merger challenges Dell and EMC will face.
But Dell/EMC isn’t the thing happening in tech. Intel’s quarterly results show how the cloud and the data center is becoming more essential to the chipmaker. And Wal-Mart announces that it’s contributing its cloud migration software to the open-source community to help battle cloud lock-in.
Meanwhile, on the open networking front, BT says OpenStack may not have everything BT needs, but where else is BT going to go? And we look at the potential outcomes for ONOS, an open-source SDN controller, joining Linux Foundation, which already hosts the OpenDaylight SDN controller.
Viptela’s hybrid SD-WAN technology unifies your MPLS, Leased Line and Internet-based WAN infrastructure. It’s packaged with centralized administration, real-time visibility, and policy control for precise and measurable application performance.
We’re recording a live Packet Pushers Podcast with Viptela at the ONUG conference this November. Join us November 4th to meet the Packet Pushers and hear from Viptela customers about real-world SD-WAN deployments.
