How can you track down all the devices in your network that you don’t know about? How can you ensure they aren’t security risks or potential threat vectors? Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at PathSolutions and their new TotalView Security Operations Manager and how it can help you figure out what’s hiding just out of plain sight.
Tech Field Day Events
The challenge of data management is something organizations have struggled with for decades. Within the storage market, the race has been on to provide customers with a solution that helps ease the burden associated with data management within the data center and across clouds. At Cloud Field Day 6, Hammerspace presents the answer customers are looking for.
Hyperconverged solutions have done a great deal to simplify the way datacenter infrastructure is approached. However, these types of solutions do have their flaws, and they aren’t a good fit in every situation. HPE has recognized this and brought the best attributes of converged stacks and hyperconverged solutions to market in the form of HPE Nimble dHCI.
Programming hardware isn’t easy. Unless you start out with the idea that you’re going to use a language that is easy to adapt to your needs. Tom Hollingsworth looks at the decisions made by Pensando to leverage P4 to extend its platform to adapt to the future needs of its customers.
Application Performance Management often faces the thankless task of trying to monitor and manage increasingly complex applications. SolarWinds’ APM suite smartly views apps through three distinct philosophical lenses to provide IT will a full spectrum of visibility.
Infrastructure complexity is becoming an issue that impedes ongoing operations, and solution vendors have a role to play in addressing this problem. In addition, it’s no longer good enough to just produce infrastructure solutions that do not have awareness of the rest of the stack.
As HPE is demonstrating with its expansion of InfoSight across its portfolio of server and storage solutions, a “more is better” approach to environment metric gathering is powering a revolution in AI-driven analytics. And for many customers, this will serve as a much-needed operational force multiplier in the face of the continual drive to “do more with less”.
Tony Bradley is coming to Security Field Day 3, so let’s get to know him!
How do you build a network operating system today that has none of the technical baggage from years past? Can we ever really leave behind the technologies of yesteryear? Tom Hollingsworth reviews the DriveNets Network Operating System and how it modernizes a platform that needs to leave the legacy behind.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was Riverbed’s network security posture. At a recent Tech Field Day presentation, the company gave an overview of how they are addressing the increasingly complex world of security, and used the metaphor of the Roman Empire to frame their response. History buff Rich Stroffolino was fascinated by that framing, and breaks down the implication in this piece.
Are you having issues with code quality? Do you feel like things keep getting worse when you install the latest patch? Maybe the process behind the scenes is broken. Perhaps you need to look at what a good example of code development looks like. Tom Hollingsworth reviews the process from Arista after their presentation at Networking Field Day.
