As long as enterprises are conducting critical business on the public internet, they will always be the targets and potential victims of a DDoS attack.
Console Connect makes the job of staying on top of connection management, capacity planning and social activity easier via the Console Alerts feature.
Why Console Connect? Because “connect” is in our bones. It’s what makes Console’s cloud-driven ecosystem what it is; after all, it’s at the root of direct connect and interconnection.
Most of us experience internet outages on an individual — and generally irregular — level. Perhaps we’re unable to check in with friends on social media, stream a movie or pull up a recipe for that evening’s dinner. The inconvenience is frustrating, but the impact is limited. 2016 may not have been when many people first became aware of the vulnerabilities featured in the underlying routing architecture of the public internet, but it remains a watershed year where these vulnerabilities became such prominent and repeated targets.

Seoul is planning to be a leader in smart city technology, which includes projects like real-time parking availability. LinkNYC, our country’s best-known city-wide WiFi project, doesn’t have goals as ambitious as Seoul’s project, but it’s still a mammoth. LinkNYC aims to have 7,500 WiFi kiosks installed across the city, which will provide gigabit Internet (and free phone calls) to anyone who wants it. The speeds aren’t 5G, the range…
Console and Microsoft Azure work together to form a web of overlapping interconnections between previously separate enterprises, clouds and SaaS providers.
The notion that we’re on the edge of widespread SDN (software-defined networking) adoption has been rumored for years, now. It seems there’s always a new report on when SDN will catch on and how big of a success it will be. While these reports are usually over optimistic, they have me thinking about when the tipping point of SDN will be reached – when the momentum and notoriety the SDN movement is gaining will finally pass the threshold separating isolated experimentation from widespread adoption.
