Everyday Automation with StackStorm and The New Extreme

When your name is an adjective, you’re just asking to be the brunt of many punishing puns. Based on the chatter during the second day of NFD17, that is certainly true for Extreme Networks. In fact, it’s actually hard to avoid. So let’s just dive right in to extreme automation, with Extreme Networks. I hope […]

Secure Multicloud Networking with Contrail

I recently had the privilege of hearing from the Juniper Networks Contrail product team at their offices in Sunnyvale. I was pleasantly surprised by the pragmatic and comprehensive approach they are taking in growing the product line. By the middle of this year (2018) there will be four distinct products; Contrail Networking, Contrail Security, Contrail […]

Hawt or Naught – NANOG 72

Last week I was in Atlanta with 879 of my friends for NANOG 72; the seventy second meeting of the North American Network Operators Group. NANOG is always a marathon of presentations, conversations, meals, and meetings. This one was no different – a whirlwind of learning, talking, speaking, and yes, even a bit of drinking. […]

Networking Field Day 17 – Here We Go!

I’m pumped! In just two days I fly out to the West Coast to participate in my very first Tech Field Day event. These Field Day events “bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format.” I’ve learned a ton watching past events and I’m super excited […]

The API is the New CLI: Fact or Fiction?

The API is the new CLI.  If you’re a network engineer who pays attention to new technology, you’ve certainly heard some variation of this statement. But is it true?  Let’s start with the basics.  You know what a Command Line Interface (CLI) is; it’s how you talk to your switches and routers, and possibly many other devices […]

Network Disaggregation and SDN; A Simple Approach

Two of the hottest trends in networking today are network disaggregation and SDN. This is great for many reasons. It’s also confusing. The marketing hype makes it hard to understand either topic. SDN has become so vague that if you ask 10 experts what it means, you are likely to get 12 different answers. Network […]

Builders, XaaS, Modularity, and the Future of Business

I attended AWS re:Invent 2016 about three or four weeks ago. Being new to both AWS and to re:Invent I was an outsider again, observing with virgin eyes. This means I learned a lot. Hopefully it means I saw things a bit differently than those more fully entrenched in this new community. So while others have […]

See you at AWS re:Invent 2016!

While I find myself traveling far less than in years past (by design), I still get to poke my head out into the world of NOGs and Cons from time to time. One such opportunity is upon us this week; I’m packing up today for the 2016 edition of AWS re:Invent. Heralded as the “largest global […]

Myriad and Me

Wow. It’s been four months since I posted anything longer than a Facebook update. That makes me feel very lazy. As is typically the case though, my laziness in writing was caused not by sloth but rather by a shift in priority. A shift in priority? My first real business-world mentor chided me any time I said […]

Exploring IPv6: A New IPv6 Tutorial

IPv6 is making its way into more and more networks. While the worlds largest AS’ were the first to feel the IPv4 crunch and start deploying IPv6, these days any network with any growth at all is forced to pay attention. This means that knowing at least the basics of IPv6 is becoming more and more of a […]
