#ansible and #python pexpect for unconventional ssh interfaces

Eating some ansible last months. Love the way it works. However, when you need to deal with some appliances using unconventional ssh interfaces. Well, It’s been quite a challenge. Then, I started to create my own python tool for those cases. The victim is VSC (Nuage Virtualized Services Controller). The secret weapon of Nuage SDN. It’s a pretty nice piece of software encapsulating the famous … Continue reading #ansible and #python pexpect for unconventional ssh interfaces

Scale out #Kubernetes with #Nuage: Installation notes

Howdy, Kubernetes is the dreamed orchestration tool for any developer. However, it could be a nightmare for security guys (get online images make them cringe). After all, K8s manages containers with apps and databases connected to an overlay network. Containers could have sensible information. They could be exploded and used to attack internal/external assets. Nuage will help to microsegment containers and even put security instances … Continue reading Scale out #Kubernetes with #Nuage: Installation notes

Dockers – Nuage shows off micro-segmentation on containers.

Yes! I could dig into containers finally. My first impression is they are faster and easier to handle. I am seeing a hard future for hypervisors.

Nuage brings a really good microsegmentation to them and help us to bring advanced routing, security and networks settings (i.e. forwarding, QoS) I am not … Continue reading Dockers – Nuage shows off micro-segmentation on containers.
