What’s in store for IPv6 in 2019? What happened–and didn’t happen–in 2018? Ed, Scott, and Tom analyze the pace of IPv6 growth around the world over the past year, and offer forecasts for the coming year.
Happy new year! Today’s Network Break episode analyzes key themes and tech trends from 2018, and looks ahead on what might influence and affect IT and tech in 2019. Ethan Banks joins as guest prognosticator.
Today’s show dives into issues around IT supply chain security and mechanisms such as trusted execution. We examine how they work and how they’re implemented, and look at similar measures in routing and switching.
Thanks to everyone that tuned in this year! We’re looking forward to bringing you more IPv6 Buzz in 2019!
In our final Datanauts episode for this year, we review how the show did over 2018, talk a little about how the show comes together, and finish with our 2019 predictions done Mad Libs-style.
On today’s Weekly Show we dive into microsegmentation with our sponsor, Illumio. We discuss how Illumio builds an app dependency map in the data center to inform security policies, and leverages existing controls on hosts and in networking gear to cordon high-value workloads and contain attacks.
Today’s Datanauts episode, sponsored by HPE and Intel, explores how HPE helps companies unify their silos and build a modern IT infrastructure. Our guest is Garth Reid, Senior Strategist – Enterprise Portfolio at HPE.
Today’s Full Stack Journey episode puts host Scott Lowe in the guest chair to share his own sojourns through the IT stacks.
Today’s Tech Bytes, sponsored by Silver Peak, discusses how SD-WAN can give you more leverage over your MPLS providers and improve performance for users. Our guest is Bruce Jarrett, Infrastructure Team Lead and Network Architect at Gentherm.
On today’s Network Break we analyze Dell’s move back onto the public market, Arista’s partnerships for container networking, startup funding, new products, and more of what’s happening in IT.
The Weekly Show returns to the University of Idaho to continue the real-world network design session we started in Show 418. Today’s episode focuses on the university’s wireless architecture and design with guests Brian Jemes, Mike Rusca, and Jake Snyder. We cover 5Ghz, PoE, next-gen APs, and more.
Today’s Priority Queue dives into Juniper’s programmable Penta ASIC in this sponsored episode. Guest Chang-Hong Wu shares details on how the Penta ASIC works and discusses the future of silicon design for networking.
Today’s IPv6 Buzz episode peers into RFC 6555, aka ‘Happy Eyeballs,’ which helps dual-stack clients select a v6 or v4 address faster. Our guest is Dan Wing, a co-author of Happy Eyeballs.
What is metadata, and why should IT practitioners care? How is metadata stored? What impact does metadata have on enterprise IT storage? We answer these questions and more on today’s Datanauts podcast with guest Karen Lopez.
On today’s Tech Bytes, sponsored by HPE and Intel, we explore HPE’s Composable Fabric. It combines top-of-rack switches and automation software to pool networking resources and help your data center scale. We also discuss how Composable Fabric integrates with Simplivity, HPE’s hyperconverged platform.
Today’s Network Break podcast analyzes the latest rounds of trouble for Huawei, new silicon from Barefoot Networks, two service mesh announcements from F5 and VMware, and more. Denise Donohue joins as guest analyst.
BlueCat Networks offers a free add-on product to their DDI (DNS, DHCP, IPAM) product called Gateway. Gateway is a platform customers can use to create their own custom APIs that make sense for their business. Put another way, Gateway provides a REST API endpoint for other applications within the business to talk to. That makes for some interesting workflow capabilities.
You need to know a cloud provider’s network performance before you spin up workloads because the end user impact is measurable. On today’s Weekly Show, sponsor ThousandEyes breaks down latency, jitter, and performance numbers for AWS, Azure, and GCP.
Complex cloud applications need decent visualizations to help infrastructure engineers understand what’s going on. For cloud visibility, Kentik absorbs AWS & GCP flow logs, with Azure support coming. Kubernetes & Istio are also data providers to Kentik. Using the Kubernetes API, Kentik correlates pod IPs to pod names and cluster namespaces. With that information, Kentik can visualize pod to pod and service to service traffic flows within a Kubernetes cluster.
On today’s Priority Queue we dive into ArcOS®, a new network OS designed for whitebox routing and switching from our sponsor Arrcus. We examine how the OS was designed, how it differentiates itself from competitors, and explore key use cases.
Barefoot Networks has announced the newest version of its Tofino programmable ASIC. Tofino 2 offers 12.8Tbps total throughput and promises greater efficiency thanks to its 7nm design.
In this Tech Bytes episode we talk with sponsor VIAVI about performance management and the essential role that end user experience metrics play in turning piles of data into actionable insights.
Today’s Network Break analyzes the impact of AWS announcements including Outposts and Transit Gateway, Juniper’s HTBASE acquisition, VMware’s Q3 financial results, and more of what’s happening in IT.
There are 2 appliances Riverbed has announced, adding to the SteelConnect SD-WAN products they launched a couple of years ago. The first new appliance is the SteelHead SD. The second appliance is the SteelConnect SDI. Are these enough to make Riverbed a major SD-WAN player?
Let’s examine the assertion from Silver Peak that they can replace WAN routers. Is an SD-WAN device able to be a drop-in replacement for a WAN router from Cisco or whomever? Probably, but it depends.
