Facebook crashes into networking with open switch - Register

Facebook crashes into networking with open switch - Register | Mobile | Scoop.it

Not content with shaking up storage and servers, Facebook is creating an open source switch to help it save money on networking equipment and stop it being dependent on technologies pioneered by any single company.

JVD's insight:

Is this the the first step to challenging Cisco dominance?

 

On the face of it (no pun intended) Open Switch looks like a positive step and a glowing endorsement of open source technology.

 

There is no getting away from the fact that "cloud" at long last is starting to come to the fore. Like many, I am old enough to remember "Cloud" being discussed back in the 90's as the next big thing, however it has taken lots of blood, sweat and tears to get us here, to where we are today. 

 

The traditional "tin" sellers need to change and fast, however, that being said, the broadband network, certainly in this country (UK, Scotland) needs to catch up, so we can all benefit from "The Cloud"

 

Think I went off on a tangent there, everything is linked, in some way, shape or form.

Some good advice here. Whilst on holiday recently, we found ourselves eating our Data bundles. We take these for granted when in the UK, at home using WIFI, of as part of your tariff, However, it's easy when you are abroad to forget just how much data we use, even simple switching to manual checking of email can save a lot.

Instead of Windows Movie Maker, try using 4K Slideshow Maker which is a free downloadable application for Windows.

To make a slideshow, upload or drag-and-drop your stored photos. You can also add photos from Instagram with this app.

Add music, customize the slideshow and to save it, choose from many formats, including iPad, Mac or YouTube video.
