1. Cheat sheet for automated creation of networking lab in KVM on Linux: Arista, Cisco, Cumulus, Nokia – Karneliuk.com
Anton Karneliuk wants “…to help you with the creation of virtual labs to train your networking and programming skills (assuming you are using Ansible).” That’s pretty cool of him.
2. Security Is Bananas – Networking Nerd
Tom Hollingsworth weighs in on the Supermicro hack story, and takes a larger view of how security controls are actually getting better, and how attackers are responding.

4. Building the Fleet in Azure with Terraform – Maentz.com
Gabe Maentz writes “The beauty of Terraform is that while we may have used it to build out infrastructure in AWS, we can also extend it’s use to other cloud providers as well. As I see more and more organizations adopting a multi-cloud strategy, let’s take a look at what it would take to deploy our fleet into Azure.”
1. Google Plus Will Be Shut Down After User Information Was Exposed – NY Times

4. SD-WAN vs. Next-Gen Firewalls: Chicken or the Egg? – SDxCentral
Roy Chua writes “One of the more contentious threads of discussion at the SD-WAN Summit 2018 in Paris last week was between the traditional next-generation firewall (NGFW) vendors and other SD-WAN vendors with different roots. (As an aside, I don’t consider “traditional next-generation” to be an oxymoron). I view NGFW versus SD-WAN as the new MPLS versus SD-WAN debate, which seems to have finally been resolved.”
