Into the Wild Network By @MJannery | @CloudExpo [#SDN #Cloud]

It's hard to prepare yourself for any task that is constantly evolving, always growing, and undoubtedly daunting

Imagine you are dropped off in the middle of a jungle, without any familiarity of what to eat, where to drink, or how to build a fire and shelter. Were you ready? Do you survive? In an environment that can, quite literally, eat you alive, it helps to be equipped with the right tools and knowledge for anything that may come your way.

In fact, it's hard to prepare yourself for any task that is constantly evolving, always growing, and undoubtedly daunting. Today's IT professionals have to be on the lookout for any way to prepare and learn about new technological advances as they implement, maintain and grow their networks. Just like the wild, you have to be ready for anything, even when you don't know what you're getting ready for!

Networkcomputing.com's Leon Adato has created an article titled "Networking Survival Guide: 8 Essential Rules". It discusses eight rules to follow in networking that will help you prepare for anything that may come along in the future. These eight rules include:

  • Assess the Network
  • Acknowledge that Wireless is the Way
  • BYO- Everything isn't coming. Its here.
  • Prepare for the Internet of Things
  • Plan for Scalability
  • Just Admit it Already - It's All About Applications
  • Leverage the Right Tools
  • Revisit, Review, Revise

Each rule is broken down and given an explanation as to why the rule is so vital for true IT professionals. I found the article was easy and fun to read, and it elaborates on subjects in a way that anyone can understand. Whether you are creating or maintaining a network, this article can help teach how to survive in the IT jungle.

Just make sure you bring some bug spray, first!
