A commentary upon the problems with Prophylactic Network Security from the perspective of @etherealmind. #clicky #security

This week’s comedy gold was listening to a conversation emanating from a nearby inhabitant of our corporate cube accomodations, where one of my colleagues, Bob, was explaining to another coworker, George, the reasoning behind the decision to deploy…
This week’s comedy gold was listening to a conversation emanating from a nearby inhabitant of our corporate cube accomodations, where one of my colleagues, Bob, was explaining to another coworker, George, the reasoning behind the decision to deploy firewalls to a particular new location. Roughly summarized, the argument was this: George, deploying a firewall is like having sex. (No; I confess I had not anticipated ever typing that particular sent...

Netflix is now all in the cloud, after 7 years. SEVEN YEARS. We're all doomed. #onug #tfd #dfdr1 /cc @packetpushers

Last month, the announcement was made that after seven years, Netflix completed its move to the cloud. While offering my sincere congratulations to Netflix, it begs the question what chance smaller companies have of moving successfully to the cloud.…
Netflix is now 100% cloud-based, and it only took seven years. Seven. Years.

Late Breaking: Cisco Switches to Arista - Legal feud may finally be over, but outcome is unexpected.

The legal feud between Cisco and Arista may finally be over, though perhaps not in the way any of us had expected. The news starting to filter out of San Jose this morning is that Cisco has agreed to drop its lawsuit in return for the immediate…

Blog: The NSA is into your software and hardware down to the BIOS, so who can you trust? #nfd11 /cc: @skyportsystems

Skyport Systems offers a trusted computing platform to securely host virtual machines. Big deal? Well, maybe more than it seems at first glance. I was sitting in some Juniper training last week being told about their Zero Trust security capabilities…

Blog: The Future is Bright! The Future is, uh, PoE? #nfd11 /cc @cisco

There’s no avoiding the fact that the much-hyped Internet of Things (IoT) is coming. Devices are popping up all over the place offering some form of wireless connectivity so that they can control (or be controlled) remotely, and if you want to run a Smart…
The Internet of Things (IoT) is coming. How can Power Over Ethernet (PoE) help reduce costs and improve manageability?

Blog: Golang is GO GO GO! Yes, I finally tried programming in Go. Did I like it? For that, you have to read the post... #golang #go

You will have to be a programmer if you’re going to be a network engineer in the future, they say. I don’t agree, but it surely helps you do your job. But what language should you learn? Perl? (no) Python? (maybe) Ruby? (perhaps) Every time I say…
I'm giving the Go Programming Language a shot because, well, why on earth not? See how I get on with it in this brief introduction.

What is SDN? I Still Don’t kNow... The #NFD11 delegates officially kill off SDN as an acronym.

Today you get to play the SDN Definition Game: match the definition of Software Defined Neworking with the person who said it at the Networking Field Day 11 Delegate Roundtable. I’d make this exercise “drag and drop” but that sounds a bit complicated, so…
SDN remains stoically undefinable, yet it seems to be a "feature" of almost every new product on the market. So what the heck is SDN?
