Reading Time: < 1 minute This is an article that I wrote as a contribuitor for the Aruba blog. Read the full article. Network topology is the arrangement of the different network elements of a communication network, usually represented with a graph. Network topology is an application of graph theory in which different network devices are modeled as nodes and the connections between the devices are modeled as links or lines between the nodes.

Reading Time: < 1 minute This is an article that I wrote as a contribuitor for the Aruba blog. Read the full article Why Small and Midsize Businesses Need Modern Switches with Strong Security. The network is an important ingredient in any IT security plan, because cyberattacks commonly arrive from the network and attacks also use the network to propagate the damage. Network security is a huge priority for large companies, but it’s equally important for small and midsize businesses (SMBs).

Reading Time: < 1 minute This is an article that I wrote as a contribuitor for the Aruba blog. Read the full article Stacking Network Switches: Why and Why Not. In networking, the term “stack” (or stackable) refers to a group of physical switches that have been cabled and grouped in one single logical switch. Over the years, stacking features have evolved from a premium (and costly feature) to a core capability of almost all enterprise-grade switches (and also in several SMB models).

Reading Time: 4 minutes I’m very proud and honored to have been invited at the second Security Field Day (#XFD2) event. This is a brand new Tech Field Day (TFD) event, the Tech Field Day team started the Security Field Day event because they recognized that security is just as vital to IT operations as storage, networking, or virtualization. And of course there is more demand on those type of topics. You can learn more in this post by Tom Hollingsworth: Security Field Day – The Non-Conference.

Reading Time: 4 minutes The 2018 was the year of the CPU related threats, starting with the Meltdown and Spectre bugs affecting several processors, but with most of issues related to Intel based CPU. Unfortunately, this was only the beginning and many other bugs were discovered later. And we’re probably just at the tip of the iceberg.

Reading Time: 4 minutes Most people probably already know the terms Converged infrastructures (CI) and HyperConverged Infrastructures (HCI) that are both become quite common in the IT world, with several products and solutions that aim to be fit in those classifications. With the addition of new terms, like composable infrastructures. But HCI has become a hot topic with several vendors that aim to be a leader in this area, or with several “magic quadrants” that try to define who is in. And most people say that HCI market will just eat all (or most) of the primary storage market.
