New Year Resolution #1: I shall clean my Inbox on a weekly basis. Here are the links that started gathering dust during the last week:
- It’s amazing how similar the sysadmin problems are to ours: give us CLI, not eye candy, ASCII configurations and APIs. One could only hope the networking vendors would listen as well.
- Moving To The Cloud Is Not Cut And Paste. Some people will try to move their existing broken applications to the cloud. Some people have used screen scrapers to GUIze their existing 3270 SNA applications. The results will probably be the same.
- The Curious Case of the MBO Cloud ... and some people will move to the cloud just to get the yearly bonus. Fantastic motivation; expect pure awesomeness.
- The Recertification Treadmill – great news; I can stop ranting about stupidities in our industry. @networkingnerd is doing a great job.
- Cisco Nexus 7000 connectivity solutions for Cisco UCS – what else would you expect from @bradhedlund but another great UCS/Nexus post.
- Technology Short Take #9 – Another great summary from Scott Lowe.
- An introduction to Net Neutrality. A nice introductory article.
- Q-tools: An approach for discovery and knowledge work – a bit academic, but a must-read.
- Controller-less WLANs – the controller pendulum is swinging.
