Digital Evolutions: Startups, Platforms and #Ecosystems | Internet Evolution | Scoop.it

As some of you may recall, I recently shared with the community a canvas I created for the design of platforms (the so called Platform Design Canvas), which I also had the opportunity to present in Barcelona during the Design Thinking Week. The Canvas will also be the subject of the “Create Platforms, not Products” Workshop that I will give at Frontiers of Interaction Conference in Milan soon (See: http://2013.frontiersofinteraction.com/speakers/simone-cicero/ for details).

Mellanox open sources its switch software as SDN pressures vendors to react | GigaOM Tech News

Mellanox open sources its switch software as SDN pressures vendors to react | GigaOM Tech News | Internet Evolution | Scoop.it

Mellanox has jumped into the open-source hardware movement with both feet, offering to support open-source projects such as OpenFlow and Quagga on its gear while also opening up the code for its switching software. The networking chip maker is taking this stance as more networking companies find themselves under pressure from changing customer needs, the threat of OpenFlow and the rise of software-defined networking.

 

Mellanox, primarily an Infiniband vendor, recently started gaining wins on the Ethernet side as well. Its history of providing networking gear and silicon for the highly-distributed and IO-intensive high-performance computing market has given it something of an edge in certain scale-out deployments. So the news that it’s trying to drive the creation of an Open Ethernet initiative makes sense. It’s listening to its customers and attempting to position itself as the replacement to traditional networking gear for the scale out and software-defined networking era.

Explore the emerging definitions, protocols, and standards for SDN—software-defined, software-driven, programmable networks—with this comprehensive guide. Two senior network engineers show you what’s required for building networks that use software for bi-directional communication between applications and the underlying network infrastructure.

This vendor-agnostic book also presents several SDN use cases, including bandwidth scheduling and manipulation, input traffic and triggered actions, as well as some interesting use cases around big data, data center overlays, and network-function virtualization. Discover how enterprises and service providers alike are pursuing SDN as it continues to evolve.

Explore the current state of the OpenFlow model and centralized network controlDelve into distributed and central control, including data plane generationExamine the structure and capabilities of commercial and open source controllersSurvey the available technologies for network programmabilityTrace the modern data center from desktop-centric to highly distributed modelsDiscover new ways to connect instances of network-function virtualization and service chainingGet detailed information on constructing and maintaining an SDN network topologyExamine an idealized SDN framework for controllers, applications, and ecosystemsTable of Contents

Understanding OpenFlow: a Key Technology Underpinning SDN | Internet Evolution | Scoop.it
OpenFlow is a networking standard that comes from the Open Networking Foundation (ONF). It is one of the key technologies in SDN because it provides an open interface to the hardware that controls network packets (known as the forwarding layer).

Blacksburg, VA: The First Gigabit Wireless City | US-Ignite.org

Blacksburg, VA: The First Gigabit Wireless City | US-Ignite.org | Internet Evolution | Scoop.it

On September 19th, Blacksburg Virginia announced that it was initiating public gigabit wireless service to sixteen blocks of downtown and demonstrated coverage on the first block. I spoke at the launch and got to play with as much of the wireless gigabit as my devices could handle.

 

This was remarkable for several reasons.

 

  We now have a wireless gigabit city as one of the US Ignite communities and testbeds.  For all those who have been wondering if US Ignite was a fiber-only club, the answer is now clear: gigabit can be wireless as well as fiber. The money needed to add a new gigabit fiber to the Blacksburg head-end and to provide the wireless gigabit routers was raised through KickStarter – a social funding site which raised $94,000 to get the gigabit wireless going. Blacksburg has also received an NSF US Ignite grant to install a GENI rack and work on a health exercise application: FitNet.  This means that Blacksburg joins a very small and exclusive club that is assembling all three elements that have been shown to enable next-gen apps: gigabit to the end user, local cloud (via the GENI rack), and software-defined networking (via the OpenFlow switch in the GENI rack and future OpenFlow switches between the access points downtown).

 

The technology needed for gigabit wireless, IEEE 802.11ac is still very new.  Cisco sent some of their first gigabit wireless routers to Blacksburg via overnight delivery so they could be part of the launch.  Still, few people at the launch had devices capable of connecting at gigabit wireless speeds.  The TechPad Blacksburg had brought out a Macbook Air to demo the gigabit wireless speed, but software problems in IOS held the speed down (see http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57590809-263/macbook-air-real-world-802.11ac-speeds-throttled/).

Small Business IT Tips: - Virtualization

Small Business IT Tips:  - Virtualization | Internet Evolution | Scoop.it

Using Virtual Machines to run your business services is probably the cheapest and easiest way to boost your business efficiency and lower costs... Maybe you have a web server, an Exchange server, a radius server, a database server, a firewall, and a file server...you could be using about 2500 WATTS!  That is a pretty great reason to consolidate all of your servers and have it pay for itself. Who says you need one of those large phone system boxes hanging on your wall that can only be serviced by an outside contractor.  How about a Voice Over IP System…All running from a Virtual Machine. The best part about virtualization is that there are paid versions… and there are FREE ones.  You could in theory run all of the suggested ideas above from a single machine with a Quad core processor and about 8GB of RAM.  Of course, server class hardware would be best, but it’s not required.

With more powerful machines becoming available it is now possible to reduce costs by consolidating several servers into one. Check out your options.

Ciaran Corcoran's curator insight, March 28, 2014 8:47 AM

Virtual machines can be used to recover data from old or obsolete forms of media and software, by emulating the media that supported the data. In a 2009 IBM study it was found that on average, a server used 425 Watts. The consolidation and virtualization of a company's many servers will greatly assist in reducing costs.
