Network baseline: new technologies, new challenges

The issue of network baseline arose quite some time ago. Everything started from the understanding that networks are not static entities, but are a set of elements that change over time. It was also understood that networks are not only made up of physical and tangible elements, such as a router or a switch, but we must also have more abstract elements, such as the traffic pattern over a WAN link, for example.


Auvik Turns 8: A Look Back on Our First 8 Years

2011 was a big year for pop culture: Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot, Ashton Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men, and the theatrical release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 marked the end of an era.

To get to the bottom of all the Wi-Fi 6 buzz, we talked with Lee Badman, a wireless network architect and expert, about what it means for MSPs and whether they should buy into the hype.


Monitor these loopholes to ensure complete network security

The continuous evolution and growth of the endpoint devices in enterprises makes network security management a primary concern for IT departments. As a sysadmin, you strive to ensure the safety and security of every device in your network. You are on a constant lookout for vulnerabilities and issues that might disturb the shield that protects your enterprise devices. With dynamically changing trends and technologies, it’s easy to miss details that might compromise your network’s armor.

Network Performance Monitoring

Your applications and infrastructure components rely on one another in an increasingly complex fabric, regardless of whether you run a monolithic application or microservices, and whether you deploy to cloud infrastructure, private data centers, or both. Virtualized infrastructure enables developers to respond to arbitrary scale—and creates dynamic network patterns that aren’t well matched to traditional network monitoring tools. To provide visibility into every component in your environment, and all the connections between them, Datadog is introducing Network Performance Monitoring for the cloud age. Miranda Kapin of Datadog tells you more.
