Terminology Tuesday Presents: Blockchain

Terminology Tuesday Presents: Blockchain

This post was originally published on this site —Think of Blockchain as primarily two things.  1) A peer-to-peer technology 2) A way of keeping a public record. The technological backing of Blockchain is the ability to have many (many) computers host the same information.  Snippets of code (known as blocks) are duplicated and maintained in so many different places rendering fraud impossible.  The fact that each of these blocks is timestamped and unique makes it increasingly challenging to outsmart.  If you’re interested Read more […]

Terminology Tuesday Presents: Microservices

Terminology Tuesday Presents: Microservices

This post was originally published on this site —Microservices is the philosophy of designing software programs by breaking what used to be a singular function or command into multiple components, known as services.  The ultimate goal is to reduce complexity and increase speed (basically the goal of anything nowadays).   Think of Thanksgiving.  A traditional approach would have the same person cook the entire meal.  And likely even do all the dishes.  Think of a world instead where you can assign different individuals (and Read more […]

Abstract, Automate & Secure — From Data Center to Cloud to Edge

Abstract, Automate & Secure — From Data Center to Cloud to Edge

This post was originally published on this site —By Milin Desai, Vice President of Products, NSBU It feels like only yesterday when we started our journey into networking at VMware. Even from the early beginnings in 2011, it became clear to some of us that the abstraction and operations model of virtualization for compute and memory, which completely transformed the modern data center, was something we needed to extend to networking. We understood that that a network based on software and abstraction in the long run would extend beyond our customers’ Read more […]

VMware NSX/Kubernetes and F5 – A Cloud Native App Integration
