February 20th, 2008
Conference Brings Together Users and Developers of Wireshark, the Leading Open Source Network Packet Analysis Tool
LINDON, Utah – February 20, 2008
Solera Networks, the leader in open platform deep packet capture and stream-to-storage appliances, is co-sponsoring SHARKFEST, the first annual Wireshark community conference. The conference will be held March 31 through April 2 in Los Altos Hills, California. Paal Tveit, VP of Engineering for Solera Networks, will present a session entitled “The Virtues of Deep Packet Capture and Stream-to-Storage.”
Hosted by CACE Technologies and Wireshark University, the SHARKFEST conference goal is to provide an informational, educational and social venue for core Wireshark developers, as well as the widespread and diverse user community. Three tracks will be held over three days of training with discussions on network analysis, troubleshooting, security, Wireshark development, communications dissection and much more. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Gerald Combs (Mr. Ethereal/Wireshark), brain-dump with fellow Wireshark Developers, as well as attend Wireshark University training sessions with Laura Chappell and various networking industry consultants.
“SHARKFEST is a dream come true for me,” said Gerald Combs, Wireshark creator and Director of Open Source Projects at CACE Technologies. “Finally, the global community that has formed around Wireshark over the past 10 years will meet face to face and share their considerable experience with network analysis and management. These core developers are an incredibly diverse and talented group that work together in an extremely efficient manner to move the project forward in relevant and very interesting ways.”
“Wireshark is one of the most powerful open source tools for network traffic analysis,” said Paal Tveit, VP of Engineering for Solera Networks. “Solera Networks products are designed to capture a complete historical record of network traffic, and then allow network administrators to use the tools of their choice to analyze that traffic. When coupled with Solera Networks appliances, Wireshark can analyze a complete record of network traffic, including points of time in the past. We are pleased to be a sponsor of SHARKFEST, as it is a tremendous validation for Wireshark from the IT community.”
