FreeRTR Deep Dive on Software Gone Wild
This podcast introduction was written by Nick Buraglio, the host of today’s podcast. In today’s evolving landscape of whitebox, brightbox, and software routing, a small but incredibly comprehensive routing platform called FreeRTR has quietly been evolving out of a research and education service provider network in Hungary. Kevin Myers of IPArchitechs brought this to my attention around March of 2019, at which point I went straight to work with it to see how far it could be pushed.Read more …
Streaming Telemetry with Avi Freedman on Software Gone Wild
Remember my rant how “fail fast, fail often sounds great in a VC pitch deck, and sucks when you have to deal with its results”? Streaming telemetry is no exception to this rule, and Avi Freedman (CEO of Kentik) has been on the receiving end of this gizmo long enough to have to deal with several generations of experiments… and formed a few strong opinions. Unfortunately Avi is still a bit more diplomatic than Artur Bergman – another CEO I love for his blunt statements – but based on his NFD16 presentation I expected a lively debate, and I was definitely not disappointed. Enjoy the podcast
Faucet Deep Dive on Software Gone Wild
This podcast introduction was written by Nick Buraglio, the host of today’s podcast. In the original days of this podcast, there were heavy, deep discussions about this new protocol called “OpenFlow”. Like many of our most creative innovations in the IT field, OpenFlow came from an academic research project that aimed to change the way that we as operators managed, configured, and even thought about networking fundamentals. For the most part, this project did what it intended, but once the marketing machine realized the flexibility of the technology and its potential to completely change the way we think about vendors, networks, provisioning, and management of networking, they were off to the races. We all know what happened next.Read more …
BGP Navel Gazing on Software Gone Wild
This podcast introduction was written by Nick Buraglio, the host of today’s podcast. As we all know, BGP runs the networked world. It is a protocol that has existed and operated in the vast expanse of the internet in one form or another since early 1990s, and despite the fact that it has been extended, enhanced, twisted, and warped into performing a myriad of tasks that one would never have imagined in the silver era of internetworking, it has remained largely unchanged in its operational core. The world as we know it would never exist without BGP, and because of the fact that it is such a widely deployed protocol with such a solid track record of “just working”, the transition to a better security model surrounding it has been extraordinarily slow to modernize.Read more …
SuzieQ with Dinesh Dutt and Justin Pietsch on Software Gone Wild
In early May 2020 I wrote a blog post introducing SuzieQ, a network observability platform Dinesh Dutt worked on for the last few years. If that blog post made you look for more details, you might like the Episode 111 of Software Gone Wild in which we went deeper and covered these topics: How does SuzieQ collect data What data is it collecting from network devices What can you do with that data How can you customize and extend SuzieQ Listen to the podcast
Smart NICs with Silvano Gai on Software Gone Wild
A while ago we discussed a software-focused view of Network Interface Cards (NICs) with Luke Gorrie, and a hardware-focused view of them with Or Gerlitz (Mellanox), Andy Gospodarek (Broadcom) and Jiri Pirko (Mellanox). Why would anyone want to implement features in hardware and not in software, and what would be the best hardware implementation? We discussed these dilemmas with Silvano Gai in Episode 110 of Software Gone Wild podcast.Read more …

Good Topics and Very Informative
My new favorite podcast for all topics around networking. They do an excellent job of closing every point so it’s easier for the listener to follow along with new concepts. The content is very relevant for the network engineer.
Ivan's encycopedic knowledge of all things networking encourages guests to dive into the interesting details.
Great podcasts for any aspiring network architect
Great podcasts, wish there were more though. Ivan asks the right questions and thanks to the humor they always keep you both informed and amused.
