Securing the Edge in Cisco ACI with Garland Technology's EdgeLens

I’ve previously provided an introduction to Cisco ACI in terms of facilitating a next-generation data center by taking advanced of software defined networking. So if you haven’t read that post, it’s a great place to start. Abstraction is Key:  End Point Groups, Contracts and Service Graphs Abstraction is a key concept in administration, scaling, and deployment automation within Cisco ACI.  This is accomplished by defining endpoints and policies that determine how data flows through the ACI fabric.

TAP into Complete Visibility for SDN

on 1/10/19 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Technology Partners Software Defined Networking (SDN)
Centralized control of traffic flows is critical for monitoring 10G, 25G, 40G and 100G networks. But before implementing SDN, network architects must ensure that they have a solid visibility plane that ensures 100% of packets will be seen by the SDN controller. To achieve complete transparency with application monitoring tools, comprised of network analyzers, computer forensic analysis and data capture, data leakage prevention (DLP), intrusion detection, content filtering, lawful interception and data recording, network architects must provide a complete foundation of visibility.

What Is Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)?

on 2/1/18 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Software Defined Networking (SDN)
It’s been more than 5 years since the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) introduced network functions virtualization (NFV) to the world. And yet, so much of the IT industry is still trying to come to grips with what NFV really is. Part of the problem is that conversations about NFV inevitably involve discussions about virtual network functions (VNFs) and software-defined networking (SDN).

What White-Box and Brite-Box Mean for Your SDN Deployment

on 11/30/17 8:00 AM By | Chris Bihary | 0 Comments | Data Center Software Defined Networking (SDN)
Even though there’s still plenty of excitement surrounding software-defined networking (SDN), the conversation has really changed over the last few years. One of the most-anticipated benefits of building out SDN was the cost savings. That is, until people saw the first practical SDN deployment from Google and realized the multi-year project was quite costly. And without resources similar to Google’s, mainstream SDN started to seem further and further away than expected. Now, SDN is coming into play—but we don’t talk as much about cost savings. Instead, the rise of fabric solutions are sold based on their ability to deliver programmability and centralized control of the network. Will we ever get back to SDN as a means of scalable cost savings? The answer lies in the distinction between white boxes and brite boxes.
