It seems like blogging is also a trend over at Ictivity. Another colleague of mine just recently started blogging. His blog is not fully functional(RSS) but there are a couple of interesting reads over there. Rene Jorissen is one of the upcoming “Connectivity” Consultant who mainly focuses on Cisco.
Check out his blog.
A couple of short outtakes:
Source: Our VMware consultants always choose Route based on IP hashes as load-balancing algorithm. This means that load-balancing happens on layer 3 of the OSI model (source-destination-IP)
