Take a Network Break! This week we cover a bunch of new products that Juniper has announced for the enterprise, analyze Citrix’s acquisition of DNS provider Cedexis, and read tea leaves on Cisco’s strong Q2 financials.
Cisco dumps a bunch of VMware stock; FCC chair Ajit Pai gets scrutiny from the agency’s internal watchdog; and Cisco, Apple, Aon, and Allianz partner on a new cyber-insurance scheme that offers better terms for using Cisco and Apple products.
HPE rakes in the top revenue for data center server sales in Q3, and Arista posts strong Q4 and full year financials, but still took a hit from the market.
