Take a Network Break! This week we look at a new telemetry product from Arista, and check in on the latest phase of the Cisco/Arista patent infringement saga.
Then, Cisco bumps Nutanix from its partner solutions program, but continues to make nice with Apple via further integration with Apple’s forthcoming iOS 10.
We look at new product announcements from Talari Networks, PLUMgrid, and ZeroStack; and discuss how Citrix’s free load balancer software reflects the growing influence of developers in technology sales.
We examine Intel’s push into 5G, and revisit the ongoing debate over whether public cloud will triumph over private clouds.
You’ll find links to all these stories, and messages from our sponsors, after the virtual donut.
