2020 CHRISTMAS CAROL
Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean and miserly old man with no family and even fewer friends, is sitting in his office counting his bitcoins, when suddenly the network goes down. Again.
“Cratchit! The internet has crashed again. Go fix it!” He hollers.
Bob Cratchit, smiles benevolently and shakes his head. The silly old sod has no idea about technology; Scrooge thinks ‘hardware’ is only sold in an ironmongers and that ‘application’ is something to do with haemorrhoid cream.
“The internet hasn’t crashed, sir,” Bob explains. “It’s the old network that you refuse to update. Look, all your businesses are offline.”
“New network, bah humbug! There’ll be no Christmas break for you Cratchit until you get this lot back up and running. I’m losing money hand over fist!”
“Hmmm tight-fist.” Cratchit mutters.
HALLOWEEN HOWLERS 2020
It’s that time of year again where many of our competitors are quaking in the Frankenstein-inspired platform boots – it’s not Halloween they fear, but our annual Halloween Howler blog, where we tell nightmare-inducing horror stories of things that went wrong in the world of SD-WAN and SaSe.

(we say ‘night’ for dramatic effect, but in reality the networks we refer to normally crash at the busiest time of the day). So, who has become a vampire, sucking the life-blood from every business they meet? Who is the giant SD-WANNABE monster that lurks in Mirky Valley? Who is being stalked by the Grim Reaper and who, frankly, may as well kick the Halloween trick or treating bucket and give up the ghost on SD-WAN right now?
