Load Balancing For Security?

Posted by Clive Longbottom on Feb 20, 2017 4:30:22 PM

Load Balancing (LB), is now popping up on the corporate security agenda! LB is no longer just about managing traffic flows across enterprise routers and servers. In the age of the cloud and software defined networking (SDN), the LB off-loading function has serious possibilities for deflecting DDOS attacks by shifting attack traffic from the corporate server to a public cloud provider. Next generation software load balancers with advanced dashboard capabilities can also provide deep analytics down to the individual application. This is exemplified in the next-generation SDN load balancing just announced by AVI Networks.

In a 2015 blog post – Securing the Internet of Things – time for another look at PKI? – Quocirca outlined why Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is likely to see a new lease of life from the increasing deployment of applications that fit the general heading Internet of Things (IoT). As the first blog pointed out, IoT applications will only be a success if underlying security is ensured.

What can be done with that old data centre?

Posted by Clive Longbottom on May 18, 2016 9:33:03 AM

Data centres used to be built with the knowledge that they could, with a degree of reworking, be used for 25 years or more.  Now, it is a brave person who would hazard a guess as to how long a brand new data centre would be fit for purpose without an extensive refit.
