Take a Network Break! This week we examine the latest phase in the Cisco/Arista battle being waged in the courts of the U.S. International Trade Commission.
Then we pivot to the world of networking startups. Two new players have emerged, SnapRoute and Apstra; and existing startups Cumulus Networks and Pica8 are advancing software and hardware options.
We check in on Twilio’s successful IPO, and remind Nutanix that using sex as a sales tool is sleazy. Maybe you should try donuts instead.
You can find all the links we discuss, as well as a message from our sponsor, after the baked goods.
