Note: You should read about Content Addressable Memory (CAM) before reading this post. Today’s networking hardware operates a Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 of the OSI model. The device might switch Ethernet frames, route IP packets and implement filters based on the TCP segments. A MAC Address is always an exact match and […]
Content-addressable memory (CAM) is silicon chip architecture that is purpose-built for extremely fast but very specific type of memory lookups.
The terms routing, switching, forwarding and bridging have different meanings that have changed over time.
This article provide a practical and workable definition of “What Is a Network Service ?”
Containers virtualize at the operating system level, Hypervisors virtualize at the hardware level. Hypervisors abstract the operating system from hardware, containers abstract the application from the operation system. Hypervisors consumes storage space for each instance. Containers use a single storage space plus smaller deltas for each layer and thus are much more efficient. Containers can boot and be […]
