In a recent IT World blog, titled, Cloud CIO: How Cloud Computing Changes IT staffs, author Bernard Golden predicts that the cloud computing future is scale: “Our prediction is scale: big data, more (virtual) servers, more applications, much larger applications, and many more highly elastic applications.” Golden then shares how: “In the past, growth in computing capacity was mirrored by a linear growth in headcount. It's clear that this phenomenon, if it ever made sense, is unsustainable at the scale IT will have to operate in the future. Companies can't--and won't--support the scale growth with headcount as in the past. The solution is quite clear: the substitution of software automation for what was manual interaction.”
Being the network administrator is one of the many hats I wear at SevOne. As the director of systems engineering, I have a growing number engineers to help. And I have my own set of customer accounts and I’m driving new SevOne demo methodology. Nonetheless, it is important to our fast growing company that our network performs correctly every day.
Here it is - another video whiteboard from our CTO, Vess Bakalov. This time, Vess discusses the history and evolution of Cisco NetFlow to its current state known in the industry as Flexible NetFlow. Listen to this 10 minute video to learn what is different in this version and why NetFlow v9 and IPFIX flexibility and extensibility were added to address key management requirements. Vess answers these key questions in the first of a two-part series to help you understand the value and history of Flexible NetFlow.
We recently sponsored a joint webinar with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Cisco titled, Why Flexible NetFlow is a Must Have for Network Management in 2011. I want to take some time to dig deeper into one of the points discussed and that is the increased application awareness that Flexible NetFlow provides.
Back in December, we blogged about SevOne being included in the Data Centre Solution's video blog series on IT Management. In the first SevOne video blog, EMEA Systems Engineering Manager, Nicholas Reid talked about the importance of network performance management software.
About 18 months ago, an idea started out as a simple thought – take something we already do well and expand its scope. SevOne has traditionally been exceptional at SNMP to NetFlow Integration, which links SNMP-based interface data with NetFlow for that interface. Since NetFlow represents the traffic information traversing an interface, and SNMP metrics the utilization data for an interface, the interconnection of the two for your troubleshooting workflow is natural.
SevOne was recognized this week by INTERNET TELEPHONY®, a TMC publication that specifically focuses on IP communications. The publication just announced the recipients of its thirteenth annual INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award Winners and SevOne was one of its winners - recognized for outstanding innovation.
The team is back from Cisco Live London and what a great week we’ve had! The launch of our EMEA office in 2010 has been followed by profitable operations and great success in recruiting partners in the region, leading us to increasing our EMEA marketing efforts. At our inaugural EMEA Partner Summit, we were delighted to host our partners on the first day of Cisco Live, and then have our partners assist us on the tradeshow floor at London’s ExCel Center.
On the eve of Cisco Live in London we invited our valued EMEA partners to attend a day dedicated to them. We couldn’t have achieved the success of 2010 without them, so this was our chance to give them our thanks and plan for the coming 12 months.
