The Internet is the global communication platform that enables all humans to connect, share and transact freely across the world. In the simplest of terms, the Internet is the ‘thing’ that connects us to everything and everybody, everywhere. The Internet comprises of software-driven networked switches, routers, firewalls, servers and storage hardware that switch, route, protect and store all our voice, video, text and blockchain data from our smartphones, tablets and computers intelligently across the world.BLOCKCHAIN-BASED MARKETPLACE FOR COMPUTER AND INTERNET NETWORK HARDWARE, SOFTWARE AND SERVICES

CERT Division at the Software Engineering Institute

We were there for the first internet security incident and we’re still here 25 years later. Only now, we’ve expanded our expertise from incident response to a comprehensive, proactive approach to securing networked systems. The CERT Division is part of the Software Engineering Institute, which is based at Carnegie Mellon University. We are the world’s leading trusted authority dedicated to improving the security and resilience of computer systems and networks and are a national asset in the field of cybersecurity.

vSphere 7 – Announcing General Availability of the New Generation of vSphere

Article | April 3, 2020

VMware vSphere 7, the new generation of vSphere, is now generally available. This major new release brings a massive improvement in the work experience of vSphere administrators, folks who are responsible for the security, performance, and resiliency of the infrastructure and applications that provide all the key services to their organizations. The purpose of this major release from vSphere is two-fold. The first is to embed containers and Kubernetes into vSphere, unifying them with virtual machines as first class citizens. This enables all vSphere administrators to become Kubernetes administrators and easily deliver new services to their developers. More on this in part two of this blog post, when vSphere 7 with Kubernetes becomes available as part of VMware Cloud Foundation 4. If you’re interested in vSphere 7 with Kubernetes, please visit the VMware Cloud Foundation blog site to learn more.

Essential things to know about container networking

Article | March 8, 2020

Containers have emerged over the past several years to provide an efficient method of storing and delivering applications reliably across different computing environments. By containerizing an application platform and its dependencies, differences in OS distributions and underlying infrastructures are abstracted away. Networking has emerged as a critical element within the container ecosystem, providing connectivity between containers running on the same host as well as on different hosts, says Michael Letourneau, an IT architect at Liberty Mutual Insurance. "Putting an application into a container automatically drives the need for network connectivity for that container," says Letourneau, whose primary focus is on building and operating Liberty Mutual's container platform.

Go beyond Docker with WebAssembly on the server-side

Article | March 30, 2020

Docker changed the way services and applications are designed, implemented and deployed. Before Docker, applications and services had to work cooperatively on the same machine. Sometimes they did, sometimes they didn’t. If something went wrong an entire machine, virtual or real, needed to be re-provisioned. It was an expensive and time-consuming way to go about application deployment. Nowadays, a Docker container thinks it’s the only process that runs on a machine. The result is that companies can run thousands of isolated containers on a single machine. Containers can also be created and destroyed at a moment’s notice to meet load demands. Docker opened a whole new movement in enterprise computing that’s both efficient and cost-effective.

Best Practices for vSphere 6.7 Tagging

Article | February 13, 2020

vSphere Tags were introduced in version 5.1 as a way to organize inventory objects such as VMs, Hosts, Datastores, etc., a much-needed feature for helping search for or group objects within vSphere. A Tag is basically a label that can be applied to vSphere inventory objects. When an administrator creates a tag, it is then assigned to a tag category. Categories allow the grouping of related tags. When a Category is created, you can specify associations of object types (such as; VM or Datastore) as well as whether more than one tag in a category can be applied to an object (ex; One Tag or Many Tags).
