Background At home I run the 4 port USG router on my Unifi’ed network. I have a couple different VLAN’s, Data, Management, Security, IoT, and Guest. Each of these networks already has some policies that prevent some of the VLAN’s talking to each other. For example I have some firewall rules that prevent my security cameras from talking to the IoT network and talking out to the public Internet. For the past couple months I haven’t been running a locked down IoT network.
Background Ever since I have switched over to Ubiquiti’s Unifi setup for my home I have been searching for a way to eliminate AT&T’s residential gateway from my setup. I have AT&T Fiber and I detest AT&T’s residential gateway. I won’t go into the reasons now but just know the list is almost endless. It would be great if AT&T just allowed you not to use that if you have a router of your own.
Most people do not think about backups or want to take the time to set one up or spend the money. Boy is that a mistake… Most people (myself included) are in that boat and they realize they need to backup their data after its too late and they have lost that precious photo of their baby being born.
There are multiple methods for backing up your data, they range from a thumb drive to remote backup.
I haven’t posted in awhile because I have taken a new role at IBM and helped lead the development of the new IBM Bluemix Container Service that allows you to run managed Kubernetes clusters on IBM.
For a little background, IBM has introduced a managed Kubernetes Service, for more information please read the announce post here.
Cabin is a pretty cool mobile app that lets you manage your Kubernetes cluster through your Android or iPhone.
