INTERFACE MASTERS Technologies Announces a Unique Quad Segment 10 Gigabit Intelligent Bypass Switch Supporting Passive Network Monitoring

Niagara 2818PT Is a 10 Gigabit 1U System Supporting Active and Passive Failover, Passive Network Monitoring and Advanced Management

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 10/05/11 -- Interop Booth #347 -- Interface Masters Technologies, an industry leader and innovator in networking solutions, today announced a unique 10 Gigabit (10Gb) Intelligent Active Bypass product family supporting passive network monitoring that is designed to integrate with Inline Networking Devices in conjunction with recording and traffic monitoring systems. Niagara 2818PT is an Intelligent Bypass consisting of Quad 10Gb bypass segments which possess passive and active bypass switching capabilities. The active bypass feature enables seamless failover without interrupting the communication session in case of a software crash or link loss. In addition to Bypass, the system supports 8 additional Passive TAP ports that operate at 10GE speed each for traffic network traffic monitoring purposes. The TAP ports work in absence of power ensuring that network traffic can be monitored and analyzed at all times without any packet loss.

Niagara 2818PT's leading edge active bypass capabilities ensure maximum uptime on any network-critical link. During normal and healthy in-line appliance operation, Niagara 2818PT routes all network traffic through the in-line appliance. When Niagara 2818PT detects an appliance malfunction such as a software crash, system failure or loss of power, the network traffic continues to flow through the network link, but is no longer routed through the in-line device. This ensures that inline network devices can be removed and replaced without network downtime. Once the system is back up or the power is restored to the appliance, network traffic is seamlessly diverted back to the in-line device, allowing it to resume its inline functions. In addition, the Niagara 2818PT is an ideal solution for applications requiring high availability/redundancy, providing primary and secondary inline appliances with sophisticated High Availability (HA) fail-safe functionality. If an appliance connected to the primary segment fails and a secondary appliance is available, the bypass switch will automatically pass all network traffic through the secondary appliance.

The Niagara 2818PT 10Gb bypass is managed by a sophisticated controller which supports a wide variety of control and management capabilities. The system provides flexible and intuitive CLI and GUI management features including secure web UI via an HTTPS connection, secure shell (SSH), SNMP, e-mail notification for special events, and bypass method configuration. An authentication client capable of interfacing with TACACS+ authentication servers is supported. In addition, the bypass system possesses Syslog support, enabling consolidation of log data from various systems into a central repository. This feature provides management, traceability and security auditing across a wide variety of devices and receivers on multiple platforms.

"The Niagara 2818PT is tuned and optimized for next generation data center reliability and security requirements, delivering Interface Masters' leading edge bypass technology and passive TAP technology to ensure full visibility, uptime and reliability at 10 Gbps rates," stated Ben Askarinam, founder and CEO of Interface Masters Technologies. "Equipped with Quad segment support, internal redundant power supplies, removable fans and eight passive TAP ports the system provides unprecedented quality and the best price-performance."

Niagara 2818PT provides features that are essential in today's data centers:

  • Active Bypass in case of system failure
  • Passive Bypass which is essential during power loss
  • High Availability failover capabilities
  • 10 Gigabit Multi Mode (SR) and Single mode (LR) support

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO are the world's most influential, independent events where Cloud Computing was coined and where technology buyers and vendors meet to experience and discuss the big picture of Digital Transformation and all of the strategies, tactics, and tools they need to realize their goals.

This sixteen (16) hour course provides an introduction to DevOps, the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster.
Authorization of web applications developed in the cloud is a fundamental problem for security, yet companies often build solutions from scratch, which is error prone and impedes time to market. This talk shows developers how they can (instead) build on-top of community-owned projects and frameworks for better security.Whether you build software for enterprises, mobile, or internal microservices, security is important. Standards like SAML, OIDC, and SPIFFE help you solve identity and authentication, but for them authorization is out of scope. When you need to control "who can do what" in your app, you are on your own.
The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
