Cisco Presents Intent-Based Networking

Cisco Presents Intent-Based Networking

Cisco announces what it claims is one of the "most significant breakthroughs in enterprise networking"-- intent-based networking, a system able to anticipate actions, stop threats and, ultimately, "evolve and learn."

The principle behind intent-based networking is similar to self-driving vehicles. Whereas a traditional network requires an administrator managing of multiple tasks, an intent-based network can determine how to do a task, before automating specific tasks to make it happen.

Such a system involves a shift from hardware-centric to software-driven networking, making an intelligent, secure platform "powered by intent and informed by context." Behind the intuitive network is Digital Network Architecture (DNA), a suite of technologies and services running as a single system.

It offers "carrier-class" performance, with immediate availability, better insights into troubleshooting and easier automation through a fully extensible fabric design. The Virtual Switching Framework (VSF) with two chassis scales up to 512 10GbE, 128 40Gbe or 96 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Powering the 8400 is ArubaOS-CX-- a new operating system able to automate and simplify many critical and complex network tasks. It offers automated visibility via Aruba Network Analytics Engine (NAE), faster resultion with Network Insights, and a built-in Python interpreter and REST-based APIs for full programmability and easy integration with infrastructure and applications.

IDC: Sharp Q1 2017 Decline for Servers in W. Europe

IDC: Sharp Q1 2017 Decline for Servers in W. Europe

IDC reports the W. European server market down by -14.3% Y-o-Y in Q1 2017-- in contrast with CEE, the region showing the fastest growth at 7.2% Y-o-Y.

On a global basis, the Q1 2017 server market is also on the decline, specifically by -4.6% Y-o-Y to $11.8 billion. Causing such slowdown is hyperscale services providers waiting until H2 2017 for the deployment of Intel Skylake processors, while high-end server sales remain a "drag" on overall market performance. Another factor negatively affecting the market is DRAM prices.

Server shipments are actually the rise-- by 1.4% Y-o-Y to 2.21 million, with one customer accounting for over 10% of servers shipped during the quarter.

Volume server revenues are down by -3.4% Y-o-Y to $9.5bn, while midrange server revenues show 16.5% Y-o-Y to $1.3bn. High-end systems revenues drop by -29% Y-o-Y to $1bn, and the analyst expects long-term secular declines in high-end system revenue.
