AWS Reinvent Intent-Driven Network Infra: Interesting video about Intent-driven networking in AWS. This is the paper he shows in the presentation. Same note as last year, leaf-spine, pizza boxes, all home made. The development of the SIDR as the control plane for scale. And somehow the talk about UltraCluster for AI (20k+ GPU). Maybe that is related to this collaboration NVIDIA-AWS. Interesting that there is no mention to QoS, he said no oversubscription. In general, everything is high level, and done in-house, and very likely they facing problems that very few companies in the world are facing. Still would be nice to open all those techs (like Google has done – but never for network infra). As well, I think he hits the nail on the head how he defines himself from Network Engineer to Technologist, as at the end of the day, you touch all topics.
AWS backbone: No chassis, all pizza boxes
Graviton4: More ARM chips in cloud-scale
Groq: Didnt know this “GPU” alternative. Interesting numbers. Let’s see if somebody buys it.
Petals: Run LLMs bittorrent style!
Google view after 18 years: Very nice read about the culture shift in the company, from do not evil, to make lots of many at any cost.
GTP-Crawler: Negative thing, you need the pay version of chatgpt. I wonder, If I crawke cisco, juniper and arista, what would be nearly all network knowledge in the planet? If that crawler can get ALL that date.
Linux/VAX porting: Something that I want to keep (ATP).
dmesg -T: How many times (in even more years!!!!) I wondered how to make those timestamp to something I could compare with then debugging.
