Network Computing Names 10 Networking Bloggers to Follow

With so many blogs and bloggers out there, whom should networking and IT professionals read to keep up on the industry? Networking Computing has created its own list of 10 bloggers to follow.

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Networking professionals are always sharing, whether it's commenting on a current project or sharing best-practices among colleagues. However, with so much information out there, whom should you be reading to keep up with the industry?

UBM Tech.

To help cut through the clutter of blogs and bloggers on the web, Network Computing Managing Editor Marcia Savage has selected 10 networking bloggers to follow.

What these 10 bloggers have in common is in-depth and hands-on knowledge when it comes to some of the most complex networking issues being discussed today, including software-defined networking (SDN) and the push toward DevOps. When it comes to creating the modern datacenter, these bloggers are offering some of the best advice for their fellow networking professionals.

Another benefit of the Network Computing list is that many of these bloggers are slated to appear at the 2014 Interop conference in New York City, which runs from Sept. 29 to Oct. 3, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

The Interop conference offers a unique opportunity to help you connect with your IT colleagues, help your career take off, and take advantage of one of the best culinary cities in the world. You can find more information about Interop New York and the show speakers, as well as the registration page, here.

The Kubernetes vision is to democratize the building of distributed systems. As adoption of Kubernetes increases, the project is growing in popularity; it currently has more than 1,500 contributors who have made 62,000+ commits. Kubernetes acts as a cloud orchestration layer, reducing barriers to cloud adoption and eliminating vendor lock-in for enterprises wanting to use cloud service providers. Organizations can develop and run applications on any public cloud, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat OpenShift and Google Cloud Platform.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
With container technologies widely recognized as the cloud-era standard for workload scaling and application mobility, organizations are increasingly seeking to support container-based workflows. In particular, the desire to containerize a diverse spectrum of enterprise applications has highlighted the need for reliable, container-friendly, persistent storage. However, to effectively complement today's cloud-centric container orchestration platforms, persistent storage solutions must blend reliability and scalability with a simple, cloud-native user experience. The introduction of Elastifile's CSI driver addresses these needs by augmenting containerized workflows with highly-available, scalable NFS file storage delivered via Elastifile Cloud File System...and with no complex, manual storage provisioning required.
Applications with high availability requirements must be deployed to multiple clusters to ensure reliability. Historically, this has been done by pulling nodes from other availability zones into the same cluster. However, if the cluster failed, the application would still become unavailable. Rancher’s support for multi-cluster applications is a significant step forward, solving this problem by allowing users to select the application and the target clusters, providing cluster specific data. Rancher then initiates deployment to those clusters.
Implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI) for Kubernetes delivers persistent storage for compute running in Kubernetes-managed containers. This future-proofs Kubernetes+Storage deployments. Unlike the Kubernetes Flexvol-based volume plugin, storage is no longer tightly coupled or dependent on Kubernetes releases. This creates greater stability because the storage interface is decoupled entirely from critical Kubernetes components allowing separation of privileges as CSI components do not need full privileges of Kubernetes components. With the implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI), persistent data layer for Kubernetes and other Container Orchestration (CO) tools, such as Mesos and Docker Swarm are now future-proofed.
