The IoT journey has evolved over the last several years. But it is definitely a journey. Let’s look at the four steps every organization needs to master to truly realize value from their IoT efforts. Step 1 begins with the basics: IoT data. Or more precisely, gathering the data from your devices into a usable format. When IoT first came on the scene, we were fascinated with what we could do in our homes. We discovered we could connect things – like our light bulbs – to the Internet of Things. And we could use that connectivity to turn them off and on. A cool technology, and those early connections generated a lot of hype. But to what end?That’s why, step 1 begins with the basics: IoT data. Or more precisely, gathering the data from your devices into a usable format. As the technology matured, so did the expectations of businesses. That’s why, as the market developed, the focus shifted from instrumenting data to visualizing it.

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.

Security Cited as Top Public Cloud Inhibitor

Article | March 25, 2020

Barracuda Networks commissioned a survey to explore the enterprise digital transformation in which the use of public cloud computing platforms is key, seeking to gauge the impact of security roadblocks and how they can be overcome. The unsurprising results confirmed that organizations are indeed moving their computing infrastructure to public clouds, and that security is the top concern restricting faster adoption. What's more, the number of organizations that report being attacked by cybersecurity villains has increased, affecting three quarters of respondents, up from 56 percent in 2017.

Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Remote/Branch Offices & Edge Computing

Article | February 10, 2020

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is playing a significant role in building an enterprise multi-cloud environment. The benefits are well documented – you can learn more about them in a new white paper developed in collaboration with ViON, Fujitsu, and Nutanix, “Simplifying Multi-Cloud and Securing Mission Progress.” In addition to driving a cloud foundation, hyperconverged infrastructure is driving other use cases. In our first blog, we examined the impact that HCI can have in a disaster recovery solution. In this installment, we’ll discuss how HCI is changing the dynamics for remote offices and edge computing.
