Sjors Robroek describes his nested NSX-T lab that also includes some virtualized network equipment (virtualized Arista switches). I wouldn’t take this information as gospel, but here’s a breakdown of some of the IPv6 support available in VMware NSX. Here’s an interesting article on the role that virtualization is playing in the network functions virtualization (NFV) space now that ARM hardware is growing increasingly powerful. Operating Systems/Applications.

Michael Kashin has a great article on how Open Virtual Network (OVN, part of the Open vSwitch project) implements virtual networks in OpenStack. Simon Leinen (from SWITCHengines) explains their use of IPv6 with OpenStack. If you’ve deployed the vRealize Operations Management Pack for NSX, there’s an option to enable Log Insight integration as well. Operating Systems/Applications. Virtualization.

Operating Systems/Applications. Want to run Docker Swarm with IPv6? is out (get it here ), marking the first LTS release from Canonical that leverages systemd as its init system. Virtualization. This one isn’t quite virtualization, but isn’t quite hardware either, so we’ll throw it in here. Frank Denneman has a nice post on using an OS X system to manage your vSphere environment.

Vincent Bernat has a really in-depth article on IPv4 route lookup on Linux (and one on IPv6 route lookup as well). and their product (VirTool Network Analyzer) is aimed at providing some operational visibility into OpenStack virtual networks. I saw a demo of the product—it looks quite handy, and provides a pretty fair amount of information to help operators figure out what’s happening “under the covers.” Operating Systems/Applications.

Welcome to Technology Short Take #51, another collection of posts and links about key data center technologies like networking, virtualization, cloud management, and applications/operating systems. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned Open Virtual Network (OVN) here before, as I’m pretty jazzed about the work going on with this project. Here’s one way , using Ravello Systems. Operating Systems/Applications. Virtualization.

In this post, I’ve gathered links to posts about networking, virtualization, Docker, containers, Linux, configuration management, and all kinds of other cool stuff. I don’t see it replacing other tools (just like I don’t necessarily see Linux containers replacing virtualization or bare metal), but I do think it’s a nice complement to existing tools. Operating Systems/Applications. Virtualization. Welcome to Technology Short Take #53.

Tor Anderson has an article on using IPv6 for network boot using UEFI and iPXE. This article provides a good introductory overview of Linux iptables commands for configuring host-based firewall rules on your Linux systems. The areas of orchestration systems and resource scheduling are getting a bit more connected due to the efforts of Kubernetes-Mesos, which recently announced the release of version 0.7.0. Operating Systems/Applications. Virtualization.

I highly recommend you read the entire post, but in short the five skills Matt recommends are software skills (which includes configuration management and software development tools like Git ), Linux, deep protocol knowledge, hypervisor and container networking, and IPv6. Operating Systems/Applications. Per my list of 2015 projects , I’ve been investigating other configuration management systems (I’ve primarily focused my efforts on Puppet until now). Virtualization.
