FireMon, Breaking into Australian and New Zealand Markets

CTOvision

We don’t make the firewall, we don’t make the F5 load balancer, we don’t make the Cisco router, but we make them better,” DeBell said. The most significant play for FireMon, according to DeBell, was the move toward next-generation firewall. Mick Stephens, FireMon’s A/NZ regional manager, said that their next-generation firewall process was like getting rid of redundant rulesets and overshadowed rule sets. Katie Kennedy.

How does your SaaS vendor respond to the scalability question.

Social, Agile and Transformation

Ask some CTO’s about how their product scales and they’ll whip out a logical diagram showing you redundant networks, redundant firewalls, load balancers, clustered application servers, redundant databases, and SAN storage. Social, Agile, and Transformation.

Technology Short Take 143

Scott Lowe

Here’s a quick look at using Envoy as a load balancer in Kubernetes. I saw this blog post about Curiefense , an open source Envoy extension to add WAF (web application firewall) functionality to Envoy. Welcome to Technology Short Take #143! I have what I think is an interesting list of links to share with you this time around.

Five Things Your Startup Has to Do, Even After Your App Is Built

Galido

Security is a big concern for mobile apps, and you’ll pay for firewalls, encryptions, and compliance,” according to BuildFire. Scalability refers to a system’s ability to handle increased loads. Instead, you should build your app with load balancers and autoscalers.

Technology advancements have made it necessary for retail stores to institute data security measures.

Thinking Out Loud: Targeting the Real Problem

Scott Lowe

The real problem is the configuration and management of network policy: stuff like QoS, VLANs, ACLs, NAT, VRFs, firewalls, load balancing, etc. Two (relatively) independent thought streams collided late last week, and this post is the result. The first thought stream was about the benefits and drawbacks of OpenFlow. As I’ve said on many occasions, every technology decision has benefits and drawbacks. OpenFlow is no exception, in my opinion.

VMworld 2013 Day 2 Keynote

Scott Lowe

Kit shows tasks in vCenter Server that reflect the automation being done by NSX with regard to automatically creating load balancers, firewall rules, logical switches, etc., This, naturally, leads into a discussion of the distributed firewall functionality present in NSX, where firewall functionality occurs within the hypervisor, closest to the VMs. This is a liveblog of the day 2 keynote at VMworld 2013 in San Francisco.

Managing What Matters In the Cloud: The Apps » Data Center.

Data Center Knowledge

In these applications, multiple Web servers are needed to address a large load of user requests, which in turn depend on the business logic in a tier of application servers – and they, in turn, must access data in a tier of database servers. The user level elements that are managed within such an IaaS cloud are virtual servers, cloud storage and shared resources such as load balancers and firewalls. Firewall rules. About DCK. Advertise.

On Network Virtualization and SDN

Scott Lowe

What about virtualized load balancers? Or virtualized firewalls? Is there a difference between network virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN)? If so, what is the relationship between them? Is one a subset of the other? This is a topic that is increasingly being discussed and debated. So, in a similar fashion to my post on network overlays vs. network virtualization , I thought I’d weigh in with some thoughts.

As a provider, Expedient has to balance five core resources: compute, storage (capacity), storage (performance), network I/O, and memory. It is, however, very well-suited to workloads that need predictable performance and that work with lots of small packets (firewalls, load balancers, other network devices). This is session CLDS006, “Exploring New Intel Xeon Processor E5 Based Platform Optimizations for 10 Gb Ethernet Network Infrastructures.”

Technology Short Take #48

Scott Lowe

The “gotcha” is that these software stacks haven’t been written yet, so the idea of repurposing hardware from switch to firewall to load balancer is still a bit of a unicorn. Welcome to Technology Short Take #48, another installation in my irregularly-published series that collects links, articles, and thoughts from around the web.
