Collection of useful, relevant or inane places on the the Internets for 22 Apr 10:
- white_paper_c11_589890.pdf (application/pdf Object) – For a bit of lazy reference. You can cut and paste this into your design.
- APNIC hands out record IPv4 addresses – ipv4, APNIC – Computerworld –
The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) doled out nearly a record 27 million IPv4 addresses during the first three months of 2010.
Is this the canary in the coal mine for the widely predicted IPv4 land grab as addresses run out ?
- Managing Feature Licenses for Cisco ASA 5500 Version 8.3 [Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances] – Cisco Systems – More on license management on Cisco ASA firewalls using Version 8.3. You no longer need Feature licenses for both ASAs in a HA pair, and currently installed licenses are glommed together i.e. If both units as 100 user SSL Premium license then you will have a 200 User SSL Premium license after the upgrade.
No indications on whether a refund is available.
I am wasting a lot of time in licensing research these days. Annoying and a lot of time is spent researching feature availability. Frustration level is rising.
- Arista Network-Blog –
The Arista 7500 switch is the highest throughput 10G Ethernet switch in the industry. It has a non-blocking 10 Terabits-per-second fabric. This fabric supports 384 wirespeed L2/L3 10GbE ports capable of forwarding 5.7 BPPS with a latency of less than four microseconds, and large packet buffers that handle any network traffic mix with ease.
While each one of these metrics sets a new standard, what is even more amazing is that the Arista 7500 delivers this performance while consuming as little as 10 Watts per 10GbE port, a fraction of the power of existing products that have far less throughput. And all of this fits into a compact 11U chassis, the densest in the industry.
Holy Self Incarnating Spanning Tree BPDU packets.!!!! 10 Terabit switching fabric!!!
