"Blockchain technology has been called the greatest innovation since the internet. Governments and companies are rushing to implement blockchain technology in a range of areas that could impact every person on the planet within a few years. Is blockchain technology one of the greatest technological revolutions in history or is it just hype? Will blockchain technology cause governments and banking systems to change the way they process information or will it be business as usual? In this book, we’ll look at the answers to these questions along with addressing the different sides of the arguments, for and against, blockchain technology."--Page 4 de la couverture.

An innovative approach to building resilient, modern networks
Author: Russ White
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Master Modern Networking by Understanding and Solving Real Problems Computer Networking Problems and Solutions offers a new approach to understanding networking that not only illuminates current systems but prepares readers for whatever comes next. Its problem-solving approach reveals why modern computer networks and protocols are designed as they are, by explaining the problems any protocol or system must overcome, considering common solutions, and showing how those solutions have been implemented in new and mature protocols. Part I considers data transport (the data plane). Part II covers protocols used to discover and use topology and reachability information (the control plane). Part III considers several common network designs and architectures, including data center fabrics, MPLS cores, and modern Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN). Principles that underlie technologies such as Software Defined Networks (SDNs) are considered throughout, as solutions to problems faced by all networking technologies. This guide is ideal for beginning network engineers, students of computer networking, and experienced engineers seeking a deeper understanding of the technologies they use every day. Whatever your background, this book will help you quickly recognize problems and solutions that constantly recur, and apply this knowledge to new technologies and environments. Coverage Includes · Data and networking transport · Lower- and higher-level transports and interlayer discovery · Packet switching · Quality of Service (QoS) · Virtualized networks and services · Network topology discovery · Unicast loop free routing · Reacting to topology changes · Distance vector control planes, link state, and path vector control · Control plane policies and centralization · Failure domains · Securing networks and transport · Network design patterns · Redundancy and resiliency · Troubleshooting · Network disaggregation · Automating network management · Cloud computing · Networking the Internet of Things (IoT) · Emerging trends and technologies

Move Over, Bitcoin. Ether Is the Digital Currency of the Future. "The momentum has shifted to Ethereum -- there is no doubt about that," -William Mougayar - founder of Virtual Capital Ventures The value of Ether, the cryptocurrency of the Ethereum platform, has risen an eye-popping 4,500 percent since the beginning of the year. Experts predict the value of Ethereum's virtual currency will race past Bitcoin in the coming months should the current trend continue. "There is almost nothing you can do with Bitcoin that you can't do with Ethereum." There is a reason why Ethereum has been backed by over thirty big banks, tech giants, and other organizations--including J.P. Morgan, Chase, Microsoft, and Intel , who are uniting to build business-ready versions of the software. Over the last few months, 100 plus companies have joined the nonprofit Enterprise Ethereum Alliance , including global names like Toyota, Merck and Samsung , to build tools that will make Ethereum useful in corporate settings. Whether you plan to simply invest in Ether as a currency or you want to build a revolutionary application on the Ethereum platform, it is critical to understand the role of both the currency and the larger framework. In this book we will examine Ethereum's ground breaking approach to blockchain technology for building decentralized applications, as well as why Ether will soon overtake Bitcoin in value. Find out exactly what you need to know if you're thinking about investing in Ether, a project built on the Ethereum platform, or even developing your own Ethereum-based application. In this guide you will learn: What is Ethereum? The Ethereum Blockchain The Role of Smart Contracts The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) What are Decentralized Applications? (dApps) Consensus Algorithms: Proof-of-Work vs. Proof-of-Stake Getting Started with Ethereum Criticisms, Risks, & Challenges Concerning Ethereum The Future of Ethereum Today, Ethereum offers one of the most well-established and innovative approaches to making this technology accessible, flexible, and exciting.
