Take a Network Break! On today’s episode we recap Greg Ferro’s Interop panel on open source and the enterprise, and examine the impetus behind a $28 million funding round for CoreOS.
We also look at new cloud-managed network offerings from Huawei and Extreme Networks, new wired and wireless products from Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, and share a few of our favorite finds from the Interop show floor.
We also look at the launch of H3C–a new entity to sell HPE network gear in China–and talk about why using booth babes at a tech show demeans men and women alike and is bad for business.
You can find sponsor details and all the links we discuss in the show after the donut:
