In this blog, Chief Product Architect Alex Agerholm looks at the standard definition of network flows and explores the great potential that can be realized for lookup technology by seeing beyond conventional flow compositions.
For efficiency, a lot of monitoring and analysis tools focus on flow records to detect anomalies in the network - and only dive to the underlying packet level if needed. In this blog, Chief Product Architect Alex Agerholm discusses typical use cases, looks at NetFlow/IPFIX acceleration and speculates on the imminent future of flow processing.
CPU-bound security applications are severely challenged to process an ever-increasing number of packets. In this blog, Chief Product Architect Alex Agerholm discusses how flow shunting can help address this performance bottleneck and explains how the next level of acceleration is achieved.
A blog article by Alex Agerholm, who explains and delves into the concept of packet capture as a service in a virtualized environment.
FPGA has shown that it can provide significant acceleration and a high level of reconfigurability and doing all that with an efficient compute power per watt.
So where does all this lead and who is the winner?
During the first week of May I attended the RedHat Summit in Boston for the first time. This year over 6000 people from the open source community around the world got together for 3 days to learn about the latest innovations, ideas and initiatives under the RedHat umbrella.
Last week I attended the FloCon 2017 conference in San Diego. It was attended by more than 200 people from different companies and organizations from around the world.
