VMware might just have cracked the container market with NSX

HP: OpenStack's networking nightmare Neutron 'was everyone's fault' • The Register
In many ways, Neutron’s failure and planned rebirth are a metaphor for OpenStack as a whole, with the tech promising too much at the start, becoming overly dependent on vendors, and only being fixed when paying punters started to confront its weaknesses. As the OpenStack collective learn these lessons the hope is that they will run into fewer errors, and perhaps make good on their plan to provide a viable cloud operating system to telcos and other businesses.

Amazon, Facebook, Google give Cisco's switches the COLD shoulder • The Register
"It is clear that networking has for a very long time been a black box. They don’t even come with APIs," he explains. "This is the history that forced us to really look at way networks are laid out and build [devices] and do [it] ourselves. Also the cost – everything else in our data centre [is] more efficient."

A networking news frenzy ahead of Cisco’s Insieme launch — Tech News and Analysis
Stacey Higginbotham takes a crack at explaining why Cisco’s announcement this week is a big deal for SDN, and Cisco: > Cisco saw all of that play out and doesn’t want to find itself in Dell’s or HP’s shoes. So it is focusing on becoming a control point in the emerging virtualized stack and putting greater emphasis on software. And, explaining what Cisco’s, well, ethos here may be: > The networking world of old said it cared what the application wanted, but the application had to speak network’s language. So the application had to figure out if it needed more bandwidth or was experiencing latency issues or whatnot. > But when the application comes first, this means you offer the application (and developers) a way to see how the network affects your application. So if something breaks, the developer doesn’t have to go looking for the networking code book to describe the problem because the networking infrastructure and software does the work.

Coté • What's with all this "Software Defined" Whatnot?
Over on the Enterprise Irregulars listserv, someone asked for a VMware/software defined decoder ring. From a strategic perspective, here’s my take: My understanding is that VMware would like to bring all the “valuable” stuff for corporate IT users (read: what corporate IT pays good money for) up into the software/hypervisor level, essentially making hardware in networking and storage as commodified (read: cheap and dumb) as it is for servers. In networking and “enterprise storage,” most of the hard stuff is actually done by software that, for odd reasons, have yet to be widely open sourced, or even extracted/separated from the boxes. I think VMware is trying to do that. Analogously, Microsoft pulled all the “value” from the PC world into the operating system (Windows) and Dell, Gateway, (overpriced) IBM, Compaq, etc. just became cheap box pushers (vs. Apple which captured value from metal to glass, and still does). Put another way: “Software Defined x" means "for those companies that bundle hardware and software together to do x, SDx seeks to disrupt you.”

The Truth About Consumer Bandwidth Pricing
"I flew down to Comcast headquarters in Philadelphia to discuss the situation. I was suprised when the told me that they had plenty of bandwidth and that BitTorrent wasn't anywhere close to crushing their network. Their problem was that they don't want to sell bandwidth, a comodity with a price racing to zero. They want to sell entertainment services, which have a higher profit margin. They are therefore threatened by online video as it competes with cable TV."
