The Weekly Show returns to the University of Idaho to continue the real-world network design session we started in Show 418. Today’s episode focuses on the university’s wireless architecture and design with guests Brian Jemes, Mike Rusca, and Jake Snyder. We cover 5Ghz, PoE, next-gen APs, and more.
Today’s Priority Queue dives into Juniper’s programmable Penta ASIC in this sponsored episode. Guest Chang-Hong Wu shares details on how the Penta ASIC works and discusses the future of silicon design for networking.
Today’s IPv6 Buzz episode peers into RFC 6555, aka ‘Happy Eyeballs,’ which helps dual-stack clients select a v6 or v4 address faster. Our guest is Dan Wing, a co-author of Happy Eyeballs.
What is metadata, and why should IT practitioners care? How is metadata stored? What impact does metadata have on enterprise IT storage? We answer these questions and more on today’s Datanauts podcast with guest Karen Lopez.
On today’s Tech Bytes, sponsored by HPE and Intel, we explore HPE’s Composable Fabric. It combines top-of-rack switches and automation software to pool networking resources and help your data center scale. We also discuss how Composable Fabric integrates with Simplivity, HPE’s hyperconverged platform.
Today’s Network Break podcast analyzes the latest rounds of trouble for Huawei, new silicon from Barefoot Networks, two service mesh announcements from F5 and VMware, and more. Denise Donohue joins as guest analyst.
BlueCat Networks offers a free add-on product to their DDI (DNS, DHCP, IPAM) product called Gateway. Gateway is a platform customers can use to create their own custom APIs that make sense for their business. Put another way, Gateway provides a REST API endpoint for other applications within the business to talk to. That makes for some interesting workflow capabilities.
You need to know a cloud provider’s network performance before you spin up workloads because the end user impact is measurable. On today’s Weekly Show, sponsor ThousandEyes breaks down latency, jitter, and performance numbers for AWS, Azure, and GCP.
Complex cloud applications need decent visualizations to help infrastructure engineers understand what’s going on. For cloud visibility, Kentik absorbs AWS & GCP flow logs, with Azure support coming. Kubernetes & Istio are also data providers to Kentik. Using the Kubernetes API, Kentik correlates pod IPs to pod names and cluster namespaces. With that information, Kentik can visualize pod to pod and service to service traffic flows within a Kubernetes cluster.
On today’s Priority Queue we dive into ArcOS®, a new network OS designed for whitebox routing and switching from our sponsor Arrcus. We examine how the OS was designed, how it differentiates itself from competitors, and explore key use cases.
Barefoot Networks has announced the newest version of its Tofino programmable ASIC. Tofino 2 offers 12.8Tbps total throughput and promises greater efficiency thanks to its 7nm design.
In this Tech Bytes episode we talk with sponsor VIAVI about performance management and the essential role that end user experience metrics play in turning piles of data into actionable insights.
