I want to share a video about the Cisco 8000 Series routers, cloud-enhanced systems powered by groundbreaking Cisco Silicon One ASICs.  They provide breakthrough density and massive scale, users will build a strong foundation for their network, for the next decade to come.

Example of the “breakthrough density and massive scale,” is the Cisco 8000 Series routers are design with the flexibility to support up to 648 port configurations, that will support 100G or 400G throughput.  Another feature of the Cisco 8000 Series routers it’s a fully featured carrier-grade routing platform delivering superior density, performance, scalability, and buffering.

For this post I am going to talk about Solution Filtering for Visual Studio Code. To improve performance when opening large solutions, Visual Studio 2019 introduced solution filtering.  Solution filtering lets you open a solution with only selective projects loaded. Loading a subset of projects in a solution decreases solution load, build, and test run time, and enables more focused review.

Link below to a video talking about working with Solution Filters, that allow you to selectively choose which subset of projects get loaded in order to improve Visual Studio Code.  Second link is to a blog from Microsoft, with case studies of organizations using Solution Filters.
