Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
