My dear friend Dinesh Dutt

A pointer to Dinesh's blog and book

My first blog post on this new blog site is a tribute to my dear friend Dinesh Dutt. I regard Dinesh as one of the most excellent experts on networking infrastructure design and practice. He has just started a blog at, which I recommend you to follow. His post on the effect of switch port count in Clos topology is an example of his excellent work.

Dinesh just recently completed for O’Reilly a great book titled “Cloud Native Data Center Networking,” which covers topics like network disaggregation, network operating systems, network virtualization, and EVPN, etc. that I have never seen covered with this authority.

The only thing that I don’t like is the bird on the cover, but Dinesh knows that :-)
