Take a Network Break! In our latest analysis of what’s happening in IT, Amazon rolled out a host of announcements at its Reinvent conference.
Of particular interest is Outpost, which is Amazon-supported hardware to run on a customer’s premises. Outpost has two software options: native AWS, or VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts.
Amazon also announced AWS Transit Gateway, a virtual router that lets you connect multiple VPCs as well as on-premises workloads; and App Mesh, which promises to monitor and control microservices you run in the AWS cloud.
In non-Reinvent news, Juniper has announced its intent to acquire HTBASE, which makes multi-cloud control and data fabric software, VMware reported Q3 financial results, and 6Wind announced a new version of its software router.
The CeBIT technology tradeshow is shutting its doors, the NVME storage interface now supports TCP for transport, and companies reported a rash of breach disclosures.
Stay tuned after the news for a sponsored Tech Bytes conversation with VIAVI. We’ll talk about performance management and the essential role of user experience for turning piles of data into actionable insights for monitoring and troubleshooting.
