A10 Networks makes pivot to cloud with Appcito acquisition

A10 Networks, with its acquisition this week of startup Appcito, has become the latest Application Delivery Control (ADC) company to make a big push into supporting cloud applications.

Many traditional ADC vendors have focused their platforms on helping customers manage applications in their own data centers. As more and more applications are hosted in the cloud, however, ADC companies have begun evolving their platforms to support cloud-based application management. In doing so, they find themselves competing with new, cloud-native open source ADC tools and offerings directly from cloud vendors.

‘Destiny:’ Bungie Makes It Harder To Get Exotic Weapons With ‘Three Of Coins’

Last weekend, Guardians all over the world had a field day with a new item in Destiny called the Three Of Coins — a consumable purchased from Xur that raised the chances of getting an exotic engram from the next boss you killed. The thing is, it never specified which boss you had to kill, and so people went off to farm one particular low level Kell to reap the rewards. Don’t expect a repeat this weekend. Bungie has addressed the exploit in a hotfix by reducing the effectiveness of the Three of Coins overall. And so it goes as it always goes in Destiny: exploit goes up, exploit goes down.
