Think about all the mundane tasks you have to do on a regular basis in your network. Wouldn’t it be nice if they were all automatic? Tom Hollingsworth takes a look at Silver Peak and how they can automate at least one thing you wish you didn’t have to do.
In this weeks Networking News from Gestalt IT:
– Silver Peak’s End-to-End SD-WAN
– Intel’s Atom Bombs
– Dispelling IPv6 FUD
Plus more coverage from Networking Field Day, including looks at Nyansa and Kentik!
Among the enterprise-focused SD-WAN companies, a lot of solutions rely on deep packet inspection. It makes a lot of sense, it allows you to see specifically what application traffic is coming through the network, and allows you to do useful analysis. But deep packet inspection does have some performance and security considerations to take into account, and depending on compliance, might not be a viable option. That’s why I was interested to hear about Silver Peak’s SD-WAN solution. It’s an enterprise focused solution, but because of their WAN optimization heritage, doesn’t reply on DPI.
The first Networking Field Day event will be held January 18th-20th with a second set for September 27th-29th. In addition, two Tech Field Day Extra Events will be held in Las Vegas at Interop and Cisco Live US on May 22th-24th and June 26th-28th, respectively.
