Webinar: Deploying True Hyper Convergence with Open Networking(Clumulus)
Yes, it’s a webinar and I know that just gets your motoring going but you should really think about attending this one. Damien Philip, the person presenting on behalf of Nutanix has been with the company almost from the start. Systems Engineer now, he was in support for over 2 years. Prior to his role at Nutanix, he was a Lead Cisco UCS Solutions Architect responsible for implementing the VMworld 2009 Data Center and for configuring the MDS SAN switching fabric for the show which became the highlight of VMworld 2009 as it was built in under 2 months from planning to finish. Should be a great session.

The charter of the nSERT (Nutanix Security Engineering and Research Team)organization is to invoke the most agile and comprehensive security best practices into Nutanix development culture for the benefit of our customers. The nSERT was able patch GHOST (glibc heap buffer overflow vulnerability) which CAN be exploited by unauthenticated user. The list of affected systems was pretty large, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 & 7, CentOS 6 & 7, Ubuntu 12.04. It someone tells you it’s OK to ignore this just run away really fast because they’re about to had you a USB key with free anti-virus software.
