** Hot Tip **Free Developers Edition of either SAP Sybase ASE or IQ!
The developer's edition has most license options enabled, but only
restricted with a light limit of 25 user connections and may not be used for
production purposes. When you're running ASE on Linux you won't be able to
run it on older versions of Linux such as RedHat 7.x - you really need to run
RH Enterprise Linux (or similar).
The free Developer's Edition for ASE 16.0 can be downloaded here
(available on all supported ASE platforms).
IQ A free Express Edition of IQ 16.0 for Linux/Intel and Windows (all
64-bit only) can be downloaded here. The IQ Express Edition is limited to 5
Gb of data space and most (but not all) IQ options are included.
=> There is no time limit with these versions of ASE or IQ

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
