All of this is calling for more flexible (and often higher-scale) fabrics, which is one reason why Brocade’s IP Fabrics are gaining traction in networks both large and small, and in enterprises and service providers worldwide.
Combined With Analytics, Data Streaming Forms an Invaluable Visibility Solution
In a previous blog, Deepak Patil discussed the theory and operations behind using data streaming to provide network visibility and analytics. Here, we’ll detail a concrete example of how you can build a complete solution (illustrated in this video) using SLX products and two collectors configured in Splunk Enterprise. The plugins to Splunk Enterprise can be found in this GitHub link so you can evaluate the effort involved, or implement it in your own lab.

This week, network operators at NANOG 70 (Bellevue, WA) checked in with us continually for updates on the status of various solutions in our data center portfolio. I’ll talk about these and other questions here.
Here, we'll look at prerequisites for creating enterprise hybrid clouds that include multiple Cloud Service Providers (CSP), and connection options both inside and outside the Colo. This allows colocation service providers to be a viable option in a cloud-centric world, meeting the needs of cloud-first, Mode 2 enterprises, as outlined in the Gartner report entitled, Four Strategies for Colocation Technology Product Management.
This is Part II of a Two-Part Series; in Part I we discussed the components and attributes of intent-based networking. Here, we’ll detail several use cases in the areas of traffic management and threat mitigation for intent-based networking.
