More is being required today of network infrastructure than ever before, due in part to the changing latency and bandwidth needs of modern applications. Wide area networks ("WANs") are feeling the pressure, especially those that use many technologies from different services providers, are geographically diverse and are stretched to the limit by increased video and cloud app usage. In view of these challenges, hybrid WAN architectures with advanced application-level traffic routing are of particular interest. They combine the reliability of private lines for critical business applications with the cost-effectiveness of broadband/Internet connectivity for non-critical traffic. Architectures like this can be difficult to scale over the existing network; most of today's network management tools can't manage it. Most of them still apply blocks of configuration data to ...

Network-Aware Orchestration | @CloudExpo #SDN #DataCenter #Orchestration

Network-Aware Orchestration: The Next Level of SD-WAN Enterprise networks are complex. Moreover, they were designed and deployed to meet a specific set of business requirements at a specific point in time. But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing performance and reducing operationa... (more)

Running QEMU/KVM Virtual Machines | @CloudExpo #BigData #Microservices

Vm_Commit or How to Easily Handle an Infinite Number of Versions of Running QEMU/KVM Virtual Machines At first adopted by enterprises to consolidate physical servers, virtualization is now widely used in cloud computing to offer elasticity and scalability. On the other hand, Docker has developed a new way to handle Linux containers, inspired by version control software such as Git, which allows you to keep all development versions. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Dominique Rodrigues, the co-founder and CTO of Nanocloud Software, discussed how in order to also handle QEMU / KV... (more)

The Future of Network Appliances | @CloudExpo #Cloud #NFV #IoT #SDN

We live in a hyper-connected, mobility-enabled world, one in which carriers must make drastic changes to how they do business if they are to survive and thrive in the future. Accordingly, great strides have been made over the last three years to prove the viability of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). Many Proof of Concept (PoC) trials have proven that workloads can be migrated to virtual environments running on standard hardware, and there are even examples of carrier deployments using NFV. The next step is to determine how to make NFV work effectively so it will deliver ... (more)
