Tech Round-up for 4/30/13

by on April 30, 2013

Here are some of the technology stories that caught our eye today:

Cisco and its channel partners are teaming up with the White House and First Lady Michelle Obama to help U.S. veterans find jobs in the IT sector. As a part of the Joining Forces program for military families, the goal of the IT Training and Certification Program is to help military veterans train for Cisco’s Certified Network Associate (CCNA) exam. Cisco is joined in the program by the company’s channel partners, as well as other tech companies like Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Oracle, and NetApp.

Security experts have found a new hidden exploit on web sites run on Apache Web Server. The exploit hides most of its code and information in the server’s shared memory, making it much harder for admins to know that their site has been compromised. The attacker can send data through stealth encrypted HTTP commands, hiding its activities from most analysis.

John Moore at Computerworld examines the greater importance of high availability in virtual server design, and looks at some of the ways companies ensure their virtual servers stay online, using hypervisors or clustering.

Brocade showed off new software and hardware offerings today, including the Vyatta vRouter, which virtually sets up and configures networks on AWS, and Virtual ADX, for application delivery and management. Their VCS fabric is also now available as a plug-in for OpenStack. They also unveiled a four-port, 40 GbE card for the MLXe router.
