This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Intent-Based Networking: A Platform Designed for Change
The Radical Evolution of Networks: Networks are the essential infrastructure that delivers the power of
data in all its forms to support our interconnected civilization. We are
all utterly dependent on networks to connect business systems,
employees, customers, citizens—well, basically everybody and everything. In just a few decades, networks have undergone a radical evolution to
meet the changing needs of both computing—think massive data
centers—and the ubiquitous connectivity for people and devices. Starting
with simple hard-wired LANs for mainframe/minicomputer communication,
the network evolved to WANs supporting distributed client/server
applications. The sudden leap to the internet with multiclouds, IoT
deployments, edge computing, and mobile app ecosystems is just the most
recent radical change. There will be many more.
