In evaluating the security posture for your Global Transit Network, your first question might be: Why do I even need additional security? Isn’t what Amazon provides “out of the box” adequate? This is not the right question to ask first. It’s important to appreciate that, while Amazon says it has a shared security model, your Amazon EC2 instance may not meet your security requirements “by default.” Though Amazon makes specific security features available to you, it’s still up to you to choose judiciously among the many native and third-party options.
As part of our fact-filled AWS Bootcamp series, Aviatrix CTO Sherry Wei and Neel Kamal, head of field operations at Aviatrix, walk through five use cases and examine what Amazon provides, and the questions you need to be asking to implement Amazon services – or add additional ones – that are appropriate for your business. After examining each use case, we’ll show you how we handle it for our own business.

At a projected market of over $4B by 2010 (Goldman Sachs), virtualizationhas firmly established itself as one of the most importanttrends in Information Technology. Virtualization is expectedto have a broad influence on the way IT manages infrastructure.Major areas of impact include capital expenditure and ongoingcosts, application deployment, green computing, and storage.
The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.

This white paper reveals how Cisco’s Threat-Centric Security Solutions for Service Providers delivers consistent security policy across physical, virtual, and cloud environments by combining the power of open and programmable networks with deep integration of Cisco and third-party security services.
Enterprises are looking to innovations like big data, cloud-based services and mobile apps to improve decision making and accelerate business results. But legacy IT implementations—independent compute, storage and networking platforms, veneered with a hypervisor— often can’t deliver on the increased agility, scalability and price performance demands of this new era of IT.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.

We have now strengthened the scope of our Unified Computing System by expanding our data centre management capabilities. Download your free white paper and learn how we have become the key supplier of converged technology and services in this space.
A related recent development in the data center is converged infrastructure (CI). Instead of the traditional silo deployment approach to storage, compute, and network resources, all infrastructure elements are delivered and managed in a single environment, providing virtualized access to business services in an efficient manner. This is particularly suitable for cloud-based delivery models. However, since CI achieves lower costs through optimization of data center resources, it can be effective for all IT organizations, regardless of the way in which the services are managed or presented.
There are a number of factors contributing to the growing popularity of streaming live events or offering content on demand, from anywhere, any time, on any device. Live streaming major sporting events such as the Superbowl or the Olympics is now a viable alternative to broadcast TV. And as Limelight’s 2017 State of Online Video report reveals, the average number of online viewing hours is almost six per week. However, as viewer expectations continue to rise, keeping audiences happy and engaged isn’t easy.
In this white paper we discuss current trends and what to expect in 2018. We examine the role Content Delivery Networks (CDN) can play in optimizing the delivery of online video content at global scale, and the technologies available to ensure the lowest latency delivery possible.
Why sports leagues are enthusiastic about live streaming their events
How content distributers can differentiate their services

The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.

Hey all, this is David Press and Doug Lardo, two engineers working on improving the data center networking that enables online services at Riot. This article is the third part in a series on exactly that topic, which begins with an overview from Jonathan of a platform we called rCluster. This time we’ll be discussing our approach to Software Defined Networking (SDN), how we integrate SDN with Docker, and the new infrastructure paradigms that this combination has unlocked for us. If you’re curious about how SDN can transform infrastructure, how to empower developers to obtain and secure networking resources via an API, or how to get out of purchasing larger and larger specialized networking appliances, this article is for you.
