Why Leaf/Spine Networks are Taking Off
Unless you’ve been stranded on a deserted island, you’ve probably noticed that leaf/spine networks have started taking over data centers in the last few years. It’s no secret that people prefer scale-out over scale-up solutions, and for networking, the old scale-up approach was to use massive monolithic modular switches, a.k.a. Big Frickin’ Switches (BFS), whenever high port counts were needed. These BFS switches have gone the way of mainframes and Pokemon-go; some people still play with them, but all the cool kids have moved on to leaf/spine networks. The market data clearly shows this trend: years ago the majority of switches were modular, but now...READ BLOG
Why your business needs advanced telemetry technology to identify network and storage issues.
Let’s talk about network streaming telemetry and why you need it. If you ever had problems trying to recreate issues, or had a tough time figuring out why you were seeing packet loss, or if you are a network admin who has ever been blamed for an application outage or a server or storage performance issue, you need good network telemetry. Because the network enables applications to be accessed, share data, and connect to storage, good network streaming telemetry is also good application telemetry. Some of you may be asking, what exactly is telemetry?READ BLOG
4K and HDR Merge Tinsel town with IP Infrastructure
If you bought your new 4K TV with HDR ready during the holidays, you were not alone.
Market researchers tagged the 4K TV global market with 20% CAGR from 2017 to 2015. More and more customers are purchasing bigger screen TVs for finer detailed image, sharper and deeper color, and higher fidelity sound, aided by the availability of ultra high-definition media content and more affordability of 4K TVs; at the same time, the multitude of viewers and new money-making mechanisms (e.g., interactive advertising, streaming video on demand) drive both traditional broadcasters and internet services providers to vie for a larger market share.
