Cisco warns on HyperFlex security vulnerabilities

Cisco this week identified two “High” security vulnerabilities in its HyperFlex data-center package that could let attackers gain control of the system.  HyperFlex is Cisco’s hyperconverged infrastructure that offers computing, networking and storage resources in a single system. More about edge networking How edge networking and IoT will reshape data centers Edge computing best practices How edge computing can help secure the IoT The more critical of the two warnings – an 8.8 on Cisco’s severity scale of 1-10 – is a command-injection vulnerability in the cluster service manager of Cisco HyperFlex Software that could let an unauthenticated, attacker execute commands as the root user.To read this article in full, please click here

Wi-Fi 6, 5G play big in Cisco’s mobile forecast

The popularity of mobile devices will continue its dramatic growth over the next four years as new technologies kick in with higher density and bandwidth, according to Cisco’s annual Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update (2017 – 2022) released this week. Perhaps the key forecast: Mobile traffic will be on the verge of reaching an annual run rate of a zettabyte by the end of 2022. In that timeframe, mobile traffic will represent nearly 20 percent of global IP traffic and will reach 930 exabytes annually – nearly 113 times more than all mobile traffic generated globally in 2012. (An exabyte is 1,000,000,000 gigabytes and a zettabyte is 1,000 exabytes.)To read this article in full, please click here

IBM marries on-premises, private- and public-cloud data

IBM has taken the wraps off of a new multi-cloud integration platform it hopes will help customers manage, secure and integrate data no matter where it resides – in on-premise, private-cloud or public-cloud applications.Enterprise customers are faced with the daunting task of bridging legacy applications with latest cloud service, and many can’t just lift and shift, said Juan Carlos Soto, IBM vice president of Hybrid Cloud Integration. On top of that many businesses are already trying to manage five or more cloud environments, often from multiple vendors, and they can’t keep up, he said.To read this article in full, please click here

Cisco pushes silicon photonics for enterprise, webscale networking

Cisco says it's closed its deal to buy optical-semiconductor firm Luxtera for $660 million bringing it the advanced optical technology customers will need for speed and throughput for future data-center and webscale networks.When Cisco announced the deal in December, Rob Salvagno, Cisco vice president of Corporate Business Development, said, “As system port capacity increases from 100GbE to 400GbE and beyond, optics plays an increasingly important role in addressing network infrastructure constraints, particularly density and power requirements.”To read this article in full, please click here
