Network Break is live from Austin, TX! Greg and Drew record in person in the press room at DellWorld, where we analyze Michael Dell’s press conference and keynote for details on the company’s EMC acquisition, and review new Dell product releases.
We speculate on causes for the recent drop in VMware’s share price, and examine HP’s most recent business moves, including walking away from Helion Public Cloud and its sale of the TippingPoint security appliance business to Trend Micro.
In other tech business news, Western Digital snapped up SanDisk, and SolarWinds announced it was going private with the help of Silver Lake Partners, a private investor that also helped Dell go the same route.
The Let’s Encrypt project, which provides free digital certificates to domain name owners to help encourage the use of HTTPS, announced that its certs are now trusted by all the major browsers.
Viptela’s hybrid SD-WAN technology unifies your MPLS, Leased Line and Internet-based WAN infrastructure. It’s packaged with centralized administration, real-time visibility, and policy control for precise and measurable application performance.
We’re recording a live Packet Pushers Podcast with Viptela at the ONUG conference this November. Join us November 4th to meet the Packet Pushers and hear from Viptela customers about real-world SD-WAN deployments.
A lot happens during the week that we can’t get to on Network Break. That why we created the Link Propagation newsletter. It’s a weekly delivery of tech news, interesting blogs, and vendor announcements, all curated by the Packet Pushers team to make sure it’s worth your time. You can sign up for free, and we promise never to share your details with anyone.
