Today in Boston at our HPE Global Partner Conference, Antonio Neri, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Group for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, announced an exciting new strategic partnership with Arista Networks that will advance our strategy to provide secure Hybrid IT solutions built on the industry’s leading software-defined data center infrastructure portfolio.

This partnership expands on the existing HPE Converged Architecture agreement we announced last June that focused on building application workload reference architectures as part of our HPE Converged Architecture ecosystem. HPE is now advancing this partnership in offering our customers and partners the ability to purchase Arista Networks switching products directly from HPE starting November 7, 2016.

Cloud Optimized Data Center Networking

Arista was founded to pioneer and deliver software-driven cloud networking solutions for large data center storage and computing environments. Arista has accomplished this by offering customers a better, open, software-defined alternative for cloud-scale data centers. Arista had focused initially in the US on the financial industry (FSI/low latency) and the “cloud titans” such as Microsoft with solutions that target hyper-scale and Web 2.0 data centers. Arista has become the fastest growing vendor in high-speed data center networking (40/100GbE) segment and is growing at remarkable pace with Q2 revenue of $268M growing 37% year over year putting them on a one billion dollar annualize run rate.1

The move to Software-defined Data Centers

Software-defined networking continues to gain market traction as an innovative architectural model capable of enabling automated provisioning, network virtualization, and network programmability for data centers at cloud-providers and enterprise networks. Although SDN initially found favor in hyper-scale data centers and at large-scale cloud service providers, it is also winning adoption in a growing number of enterprise data centers across a broad range of vertical markets

HPE and Arista share a common vision around the need to deliver secure Hybrid IT solutions and experiences built on industry-leading software-defined infrastructure – helping customers to operate their workloads with speed and agility to grow their business. This partnership will provide our customers with best of breed networking solutions that are superior to legacy networking solutions and that are complementary to our HPE Data Center Infrastructure Group (DCIG) solutions including HPE compute, storage, virtualization and cloud offerings.

According to Crehan Research’s latest Data Center Switch Long-Range Forecast Report, a confluence of faster data center Ethernet switch upgrades will propel the market to $15 billion by 2020. The firm projects that 100 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switching will ramp strongly by the second half of this year and that 400GbE will experience robust growth in 2018.

HPE networking portfolio positioning

Adding Arista to our current HPE FlexFabric and Altoline product lines will expand our ability to address a wider variety of data center networking customer use cases and requirements.

Use a YubiKey with ISAM

The traditional approach to authentication for access control is with a
user name and password, but remembering each set of unique credentials for
different applications is a challenge for many users today. In November 2013,
a report found that the most popular password was “123456” and “password” was the next most popular password. From this evidence, we
can see that ease of use and memorability is often more important to many
users than the actual security of a complex password. One way to reduce the
risks that are associated with using common passwords is to enforce one-time
passwords (OTPs) in authenticating users.

Three Successful Customers Using IoT and Big Data

By: Peter Jeffcock

Big Data Product Marketing

When I wrote about the convergence of IoT and big data I mentioned that we have successful customers. Here I want to pick three that highlight different aspects of the complete story. There are a lot of different components to a complete big data solution. These customers are using different pieces of the Oracle solution, integrating them with existing software and processes.

Gemü manufactures precision valves used to make things like pharmaceuticals. As you can imagine, it’s critical that valves operate correctly to avoid adding too much or too little of an active ingredient. So Gemü turned to the Oracle IoT Cloud Service to help the monitor those valves in use in their customers’ production lines. This data helps Gemü and their partners ensure the quality of their product. And over time, this data will enable them to predict failures or even the onset of out of tolerance performance. Predictive maintenance is a potentially powerful new capability and enables Gemü to maintain the highest levels of quality and safety.

From small valves to the largest machine on the planet: the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. There are many superlatives about this system. Their cryogenics system is also the largest in the world, and has to keep 36,000 tons of superconducting magnets at 1.9K (-271.3 Celsius) using 120 tons of liquid helium. Failures in that system can be costly. They’ve had problems with a weasel and a baguette, both of which are hard to predict, but other failures could potentially be stopped. Which is why CERN is using Big Data Discovery to help them understand what’s going on with their cryogenics system. They are also using predictive analytics with the ultimate goal of predicting failures before they happen, and avoiding the two months it can take to warm up systems long enough to make even a basic repair, before cooling them down again.

And finally this one.

IoT and big data working together can help a plane to fly, a valve to make pharmaceuticals, and the world’s largest machine to stay cool. What can we do for you?

From Third to Second to First: NSXv/ESXi Certified Solutions Analysis

The HPE FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series provides advanced features and high performance in a top-of-rack, data center switch architecture. Consisting of a 1U 32-port 40GbE Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable (QSFP+) switch, a two-slot modular version with two 40GbE ports and a four-slot modular version, the 5930 brings high density to a small footprint. The switch supports VXLAN, an encapsulation protocol for running an overlay network on existing Layer 3 infrastructure.

Flexfabric 5930.png

With the FlexFabric 5930 certification, HPE networking is delivering an entire hybrid cloud infrastructure that customers can deploy with complete confidence, built on VMware NSX. The solution includes the HPE FlexFabric 5930 as a top-of-rack switch providing industry-leading Ethernet fabric connectivity for HPE servers, storage and management portfolio.

VMware certification tests are designed to simulate real-world environments so that customers can deploy solutions with confidence. FlexFabric 5930 testing included reliability and high availability, stress, performance, upgrade and downgrade and security. The FlexFabric was shown to support 250 tunnels, 160 virtual network instances (VNIs), and 250 virtual LANs (VLANs) with 250 media access control (MAC) addresses per VLAN.

HPE Helion OpenStack is Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s enterprise-grade distribution of OpenStack® software, the leading open source cloud computing platform. HPE Helion OpenStack is a hardened, extensible product designed to deliver open-source cloud computing while adhering tightly to OpenStack software API standards and services. Our HPE Helion OpenStack solution enables IT teams to configure this open cloud platform to work with existing data center resources and drive business outcomes with the assurance that they are backed by the industry-leading support and experience of a trusted IT partner.

HPE Helion OpenStack 3.0 was tested with VMware’s NSX for vSphere version 6.2.2 and the corresponding Neutron based plugin on the OpenStack Liberty release. The solution allows deployment of Helion OpenStack with NSX network virtualization platform to manage ESXi hosts using the VMware vSphere and NSX platforms. This testing was conducted as part of our Helion Ready program, which is designed to provide validated and documented procedures to configure the two products for basic interoperability. In addition, customers who purchase VMware NSX for vSphere through HPE will be able to take advantage of a single point of contact for technical support across the entire solution.

HPE Edgeline EL1000 and Edgeline EL4000 servers represent the industry’s first converged systems for the Internet of Things (IoT). These systems integrate compute, storage, data capture and control. With built-in enterprise-class systems and device management, these systems are designed to thrive in hardened environments with the ability to easily handle shock, vibration and extreme temperatures. In addition, they are optimized to deliver heavy-duty data analytics and insights, graphically intense data visualization and real-time response at the edge.

EL1000EL1000

Edgeline systems also provide dynamic security to IoT devices via HPE Aruba ClearPass, which allows IoT devices to be automatically added and profiled, with strict adherence to security policies. Edgeline EL4000 systems also run the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform to deliver historical and predictive analytic insights from in-database machine learning algorithms across a broad range of IoT analytic use cases.

HPE ProLiant m510 and HPE ProLiant M710x computer cartridges, which serve as the compute nodes for the Edgeline EL1000 and ES4000 systems, each passed all ESXi certification tests as well as HPE deep, robust internal testing with flying colors. This enables our customers to use their hypervisor of choice as they implement edge-based IoT solutions to collect, analyze and control data from all types of IoT devices.

VMware NSX and ESX 101

VMware’s NSX software-defined networking is part of VMware’s software-defined data center concept, which offers cloud computing on VMware virtualization technologies. VMware’s goal with NSX is to provision virtual networking environments without command line interfaces or other direct administrator intervention.

Like server virtualization enabled the creation of virtual machines that represent the x86 server environment to applications, the NSX network virtualization platform enables the creation of software components that represent complete network environments to application workloads.

NSX abstracts and distributes complex network functions into the data center virtualization layer (the Hypervisor and vSwitch) allowing enterprise data center operators to transform data center network operations and economics, without modifying their applications.

VMware ESXi is the industry-leading, purpose-built bare-metal hypervisor. ESXi installs directly onto your physical server enabling it to be partitioned into multiple logical servers referred to as virtual machines.

Why the HPE/VMware partnership is significant

In the same way that HPE and VMware led the industry in fostering mainstream adoption of x86 server virtualization, the two companies are now focused on unlocking the untapped potential and innovation in today’s data center by accelerating the adoption of network virtualization – helping customers break free from an arcane, decades-old legacy networking operating model that is standing in the way of SDDC.

Windows 10, multiple services crash when opening Windows Update

Over the past few days, an error seems to have developed on my Windows 10 Professional (anniversary update) workstation, whereby when opening the Update section of the Modern Settings app, loads of services instantly crash.

NOTE: No updates were installed over the weekend, and I have made no changes within the past week or two.

It seems that opening the update page within settings, it causes the Windows Update service to crash with (Faulting application name: svchost.exe_wuauserv) a faulting DLL of ntdll.dll, exception code: 0xc0000409. This is an “Application Error” event, event ID 1000.

Immediately after this, the following services also terminate unexpectedly (Service Control manager events, ID 7034, 7031):

  • Application Information Service
  • Computer Browser
  • Certificate Propogation
  • Group Policy Client
  • IKE and AuthIP Keying Modules
  • IP Helper Service
  • Server Service
  • Geolocation Service
  • User Profile Service
  • System event notification
  • Remote desktop configuration
  • Shell hardware detection
  • Themes
  • User manager
  • Update Orchestrator for Windows Update
  • Windows management instrumentation

I have run SFC /Scannow, which reports corruption was found and repaired. If I run it again straight away, it returns the same response. I am not really sure what to look for in the CBS.log file, but there doesn’t appear to be anything too major, other than some directory ownership mismatches.

I have run DISM with the scanhealth and restorehealth switches, both of which complete successfully without errors. Ran SFC again and the same corruption message.

I have tried downloading the Windows 10 ISO, and doing an in place “Upgrade”, but the same issue exists.

Is there anything else I can try without having to wipe the machine and start over? Being my workstation, there are a lot of management applications on here that I don’t really want to have to set up again from scratch. (System restore not available as for some reason it is disabled by default in Windows 10?!).
