What do analytics, software, install base refresh, and giving back have in common? Google doesn’t have the answer but we do. This week we’re talking about:

  • A real time intelligent view of everything happening in your network
  • What our journey from hardware to software means for you
  • A fresh perspective on install base refresh
  • A key ingredient to innovation
  • How kids explaining the Cloud is raising money for St. Jude’s Hospital


Do you know what’s happening in your network? And your customers networks?

This week we launched Tetration. See if you can find which blog has this simple description of what it is, and what it means for you and our customers:

It’s the first Analytics Platform in the market that provides pervasive and complete visibility across everything in the data center, in real time – every packet, every flow, every speed. A single Tetration appliance monitors up to one million unique flows per second. Think of it in this way: if a problem in a data center were a grain of sand in the desert, Tetration would find it!
