The mad dash to connect virtually every noun to the internet or the Internet
of Things is creating a massive M2M network for all the devices, systems,
sensors and actuators to connect & communicate on the Internet.
With that, they need a communications protocol to understand each other. One
of those is Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT). MQTT is a “subscribe
and publish” messaging protocol designed for lightweight machine-to-machine
(or IoT) communications.
In this episode of Lightboard Lessons, I light up how MQTT works.

Last week we talked about how HA Groups work on BIG-IP and this week we’ll
look at how to configure HA Groups on BIG-IP.
To recap, an HA group is a configuration object you create and assign to a
traffic group for devices in a device group. An HA group defines health
criteria for a resource (such as an application server pool) that the traffic
group uses. With an HA group, the BIG-IP system can decide whether to keep a
traffic group active on its current device or fail over the traffic group to
another device when resources such as pool members fall below a certain
The term ‘Proxy’ is a contraction that comes from the middle English word
procuracy, a legal term meaning to act on behalf of another. You may have
heard of a proxy vote. Where you submit your choice and someone else votes
the ballot on your behalf.
In networking and web traffic, a proxy is a device or server that acts on

What is VDI?
Imagine not having to carry around a laptop or be sitting in a cubicle to
access your work desktop applications. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)

these mobile devices and the sheer number of them in the workplace can
overwhelm IT and strain your resources.
