The Tyranny of Choice: A Guide to Open Network Operating Systems (NOS) Reboot

The Tyranny of Choice: A Guide to Open Network Operating Systems (NOS) Reboot

This is my second installment of this particular blog, as the ever-changing landscape of the open networking world dictates it. We have a bevy of new additions on the software side mainly down to the new bare metal devices for the telecoms industry from the OCP projects from the ONF and TIP. You can catch up on this in my previous blog. Here are the 2020 runners and riders in alphabetical order so no one thinks I am playing favorites.

Data Center Fabrics – The What, When, How!

Data Center Fabrics – The What, When, How!

Legacy, multi-tiered data center architectures, originally designed for north-south traffic, have been pushed to breaking point with cloud computing, big data, virtualization and more. With east-west traffic now dominating the majority of data centre traffic, a new approach to network architecture was imperative. Step forward the data center fabric... Read article

Creating a Modern Campus Area Network: A ‘How to’ Guide

Creating a Modern Campus Area Network: A ‘How to’ Guide

Without question, Open Networking and SDN have altered the landscape of data center networks irrevocably. Less than a decade has elapsed since Facebook open-sourced its hardware designs for its Prineville, Oregon data center and formed the Open Compute Project (OCP). One month previous, the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) had formed to promote the benefits of SDN and the OpenFlow protocol. These two organizations, with more than a little help from companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft, have presided over a shift that has massively reduced CAPEX and OPEX, improved scalability, automation, and efficiency and has given the power back to companies to determine what is the best fit for their particular need.

4 Key Takeaways from the OCP Regional Summit

4 Key Takeaways from the OCP Regional Summit

The OCP’s 3rd regional summit in Amsterdam’s RAI centre was a resounding success by every measure.  Attendance increased by 9% to 700 visitors, with those visitors hailing from 38 different countries. There were executive talks, engineering workshops, case studies, project working groups and new product announcements from the likes of Inspur and Wiwynn. While videos and slides for all these sessions are available on the OCP’s  website nothing can really replicate attending to get a feel for the way the OCP and industry is shifting, and the shift was noticeable.

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
