Napoleon Crowe, enterprise management systems architect & NOC engineer III for FPP Business Services, has been using SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset for over 12 years and has had it by his side at every job and consulting engagement.

"SolarWinds Engineer's Toolset is trusted. Over many years, we engineers have provided feedback to the SolarWinds developers who have updated and added to the toolset, providing us with this must-have companion tool," said Crowe. "While SNMP MIB Walk and Scanner are my two most used tools now, over the years my most needed tools changed as needs appeared, which is the beauty of having so many quality tools in one package. The growth of the toolkit has kept up with our needs, such as the addition of NetFlow Configuration and DHCP Scope Monitor. This is the one tool I recommend to all my friends and clients."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
