How to automate the creation multiple routable VLANs on single L2 network using VyOS

Article | February 12, 2020

My personal homelab has a very simple network topology, everything is connected to a single flat network. This has served me well over the years, but sometimes it can prevent me from deploying more complex scenarios. Most recently while working with NSX-T and Project Pacific, I had a need for additional VLANs which my home router does not support. There are a number of software solutions that can be used including the popular pfSense, which I have used before. Over the Winter break, a colleague introduced me to VyOS, which is another popular software firewall and router solution. I had not heard of VyOS before but later realized it was derived from Vyatta, which I had heard of, but development of that solution had stopped and VyOS is now the open source version of that software. Having never played with VyoS before, I thought this might be a good learning opopournity and started to dabble with VyOS over the holiday.

Successful Cloud Migrations Made Easy

Article | March 16, 2020

TransAlta, an energy producer with gas, hydro, solar, wind, and coal facilities across the U.S., Canada, and Australia, leveraged data virtualization with the company’s cloud strategy. A few years ago, TransAlta decided to move 100% of its data to the cloud. The company centralized its data to reduce infrastructure, simplify data access, and scale storage. The biggest hidden challenge many companies face when trying to be completely cloud based is connecting the applications they accumulate over time. Whether they were developed and configured for on-premises environments, have specific security requirements, or are too old and complex to connect to data in the cloud, this presents a challenge.

Will VMware's New License Fees Trigger Rush to the Cloud?

Article | February 20, 2020

With chip makers packing more processing power into CPUs, a leading maker of virtualization software is overhauling its prices significantly to reflect the development. Will VMware’s new fees push enterprise users into the cloud? It’s a reckoning that IT executives will be forced to consider come April. That’s when the company’s new fee structure kicks in for hypervisor products that run multiple operating systems on a single piece of silicon. Some multinationals could face significant price increases under the new structure. The Dell EMC subsidiary changed license fees for its Vsphere hypervisor kit. Instead of charging per CPU socket for motherboard connections, it will now base its fee on the number of cores in the CPU.

Cisco and Microsoft partner on cloud IoT stuff

Article | March 5, 2020

The move was announced in a Microsoft blog, which somehow resisted the urge to use the term ‘end-to-end’ a lot. The thinking is that Microsoft’s Azure IoT platform is great at the datacenter end of things and Cisco is pretty hot at the edge. Industries increasingly want a bit of both from their IoT so this partnership has been created to provide that.Using software-based intelligence pre-loaded onto Cisco IoT network devices, telemetry data pipelines from industry-standard protocols like OPC-Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and Modbus can be easily established using a friendly UI directly into Azure IoT Hub,” explains the blog, “Additional telemetry processing is also supported by Cisco through local scripts developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, where filtered data can also be uploaded directly into Azure IoT Hub. This collaboration provides customers with a fully integrated solution that will give access to powerful design tools, global connectivity, advance analytics, and cognitive services for analyzing IoT data.
