Docker for NetOps. I have been spending this week in Silicon Valley at Network Field Day 10.

Docker for NetOps

One of the announcements struck a chord with me, as this year has marked some significant career changes for me: specifically an uptake in involvement with containers and software development. My good friend Brent Salisbury once wrote about the idea of using Golang for Network Operations tooling. While I’ve continued (and will continue) to build my Python skillset, I’ve also been getting more and more experience with Golang and with some of the great software projects created by it, such as Docker, and Kubernetes. Brent has also more recently written about using Docker to build network tools, and I’d like to use this post to say I agree with this sentiment. Network Operations can really do more with container technology to accelerate what has traditionally been a pretty stagnant silo. At NFD10, we saw a few real-world examples of leveraging existing network infrastructure for deploying tools quickly using Docker.

When your device bricked, your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 can no longer function as it was and this solution might help you in dealing with your bricked device especially if your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is out of warranty and then spend an eye-puffing cost to the service center just to fix your device. Now, here’s what we are going to do – if there is a good chance that you can still access your Galaxy Note’s Download Mode screen, then there’s a chance that this method will work on your bricked device, so just have patience and give it a try. A “bricked device” – like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3” is caused by an already corrupted firmware inside your phone’s system.

Symptoms of bricked Samsung Galaxy Note 3 1. Big Switch, Cumulus, and OpenFlow. Two of the three companies promoting white box, now more commonly known as bare metal, switching are Cumulus and Big Switch Networks.

Big Switch, Cumulus, and OpenFlow

There has been coverage on each of these companies, but the question always arises, “does Cumulus support OpenFlow?” I had the chance to talk to JR Rivers, Cumulus CEO, at the last Open Networking User Group (ONUG) during a Tech Field Day video and heard the answer from him then, but hadn’t seen anything documented publicly. There was a SDN Meetup at Stanford last week where JR gave his take on SDN and a great overview on Cumulus, which happens to be on Vimeo. More importantly, he touches upon the question regarding OpenFlow support in the Cumulus Linux software stack during the video. Coming directly from JR, his response (around the 58 minute mark): “The only way you can truly be successful in meeting the customer needs around OpenFlow is to be truly focused on a great OpenFlow agent that lives on the switch platform.

Data Center Networking

The advent of Cloud Computing, billions of mobile devices, and evolution to IT from an infrastructure- to service- driven delivery model imposes significant new demands on the network. Cloud Computing in particular is driving rapid technological change, as server and storage virtualization, higher-speed Ethernet connections, and advanced management/automation have collided to render the data center network a bottleneck. Self-service provisioning also imposes the need for unprecedented automation to drive down operational expenses. Enterprises are making significant investments in consolidating their data centers and investing in private, public, and hybrid cloud strategies. Gartner estimates that this market for cloud services will grow 19% CAGR over the next three years.
