As my friend Stu Miniman pointed out, a recent VMware video suggests the company is about to jump into networking in a big way. Dubbed “vFabric,” this new offering would be a generic hypervisor for virtual network devices, from load balancers to security appliances, and would presumably be integrated with the existing vNetwork Distributed Switch functionality.

SolarWinds Orion fanboy Ethan talks to the Head Geek at SolarWinds, Josh Stephens. The discussion is around Orion Network Performance Monitor v.10.
