The Open Compute Project Part 1

The Open Compute Project Part 1

The OCP’s third regional summit took place on the 26th and 27th of September in Amsterdam. I was in attendance as EPS Global’s representative for the second time (I was on my best behaviour, honest). Over the next 2 blogs I will share some of the new technologies that were on show from the biggest names in the hardware world. In part 1 though, I will give an overview of the OCP, where, when and why they began, the ethos within and where it is heading. Part 2 will be dedicated to the new technologies that aim to solve the ever-increasing challenges within cloud computing and more. With members including Facebook, Google, IBM, Rackspace, Nokia, Microsoft, Alibaba Group and Cisco to name but a few, all working in collaboration, the Open Compute Project looks capable of rising to these challenges.

Containers, Docker and Kubernetes: A beginner's guide Part 2

Containers, Docker and Kubernetes: A beginner's guide Part 2

Kubernetes is all about sharing machines between the applications, so understanding how they communicate is essential. The first important element to understand is that every Pod gets its own IP address. This means you do not have to create links between the Pods and also negates the need to map host ports to container ports, as is done in the Docker networking model. Pods can now be treated very similarly to VMs or physical hosts with respect to naming, port allocation, load balancing, migration and more. Read article

The Tyranny of Choice: A guide to open source Network Operating Systems (NOS)

The Tyranny of Choice: A guide to open source Network Operating Systems (NOS)

The more choice we have, the less satisfied we become however we do need choice to feel freedom and autonomy when decision-making. This is known as the paradox of choice and rings true when buying a packet of crisps (or chips for my US friends), one of Heinz’s 57 varieties or selecting a NOS that best suits your needs. Consumer choice in this sphere is essential as every network requires something a little different to suit their very specific environmental demands. It is this choice that has driven creation, innovation, price and also keeps everyone in this market on their toes. Innovate or die was the cry! Read article

[Video] Interview with Mike Capuano – Pluribus Networks

We interviewed Mike Capuano, CMO of Pluribus Networks, at the OCP Summit in San Jose earlier this year. Mike talks about simplifying the software-defined data center, using a combination of their Netvisor ONE and Adaptive Cloud Fabric to enable programmability and lower capital and operating costs by leveraging white box economics.

Wi-Fi - The Cause of and Solution to All of Life’s Problems Part II

Billy Connolly, the Scottish comedian, laughing at his father for losing his glasses again jokingly told him about an article he had read for a prescription car windscreen. His father thought this would be the greatest thing since sliced bread and wanted one immediately. Now, imagine the vision as this vehicle approaches and a man with a head the size of a small asteroid is looking at you. Or the confusion of a new owner as he drove off into a lamppost!! My point is we have to careful when looking at things we are told will change our lives for the better. We have all heard the buzz around 5G so let’s have a look and see if it’s a prescription windscreen or our generation’s sliced bread.

[Video] Interview with Glenn Sullivan, Co-Founder of SnapRoute

[Video] Glenn Sullivan, Co-Founder of SnapRoute, Inc, is the latest Industry Titan to be grilled by EPS. SnapRoute is a very exciting spin out from from Data Center Group at Apple, who were using disaggregated networking long before it was cool, to drive iCloud, iTunes and other Apple user services. Glenn talks about the genesis of SnapRoute, how they are bringing networking into the cloud native era, containers and how Kubernetes fits in.
