How Linux containers can solve a problem for defense virtualization

Thursday 18th of December 2014 08:54:03 PM
As the virtualization of U.S. defense agencies commences, the technology’s many attributes—and drawbacks—are becoming apparent.Virtualization has enabled users to pack more computing power in a smaller space than ever before. It has also created an abstraction layer between the operating system and hardware, which gives users choice, flexibility, vendor competition and best value for their requirements. But there is a price to be paid in the form of expensive and cumbersome equipment, software licensing and acquisition fees, and long install times and patch cycles.read more

What is Ubuntu Snappy?

Thursday 18th of December 2014 02:13:46 PM
If you're anything like me, you've probably heard about this new thing from Canonical called "Snappy" Ubuntu Core, but at the same time trying to understand exactly what it is may leave you cross-eyed, especially with the buzzwords such as "cloud", "containers" and "apps" floating about. Once you get a handle on it, it's obvious that Canonical's new baby isn't terribly useful for those of us who are simply users, but perhaps it provides an interesting preview of what could come to the desktop version of Ubuntu in the future.

Raspi-Sump

Thursday 18th of December 2014 07:33:29 AM
In June 2013, we had the unfortunate luck of a basement flood, caused by a tripped electrical breaker connected to our sump pump. There are so many things that can go wrong with a sump pump. You always are on guard for power outages, blown breakers, sump pump failures, clogged pipes and all manner of issues that can arise, which ultimately can end with a flooded basement. I needed a way to alert me of issues when I was not at home. Audible alarms are fairly cheap and are great when you are physically in the house. They fail miserably when you are ten miles away at work. I had a Raspberry Pi that I had tinkered with periodically but for which I never had a real purpose. I decided to try to put the Pi to work as a dedicated sump pit monitoring device. Hopefully, the Pi could send me SMS alerts if a problem arose while I was away.

Low-power COMs run Linux and Android on Cortex-A5 SoC

Thursday 18th of December 2014 05:39:07 AM
MYIR introduced a pair of Linux- and Android-ready COMs and baseboards featuring Atmel’s low-power, 536MHz SAMA5D3 SoC, with LCD, GbE, and dual CAN ports. MYIR’s MCC-SAMA5D3X-C and MYC-SAMA5D3X computer-on-modules both feature Atmel’s Cortex-A5 based SAMA5D3 system-on-chip, but are implemented on two different form factors, and with different mixes of I/O. The soon-to-ship 82 x 55mm MCC-SAMA5D3X-C plugs into a baseboard via pin-headers on its underside, while the currently-available 68 x 45mm MYC-SAMA5D3X uses edgecard fingers to slot into a 200-pin SODIMM connector. Both COMs are supported by ready-to-use development baseboards.

My life in open source, and the mentors who led the way

Thursday 18th of December 2014 04:41:56 AM
I have been working on the Apache http server for almost 20 years now. I[he]#039[/he]ve written 9 books about httpd, and spoken at more than fifty conferences.

I am responsible for putting on ApacheCon, both in North America and Europe, which is the official conference of the ASF.Each of these things, I do because someone encouraged me to do something that I knew, deep down, I was incapable of doing, and then cheered me on as I did it.

FSF's High Priority Project List Now Has A Committee

The Free Software Foundation has now built up a committee to review their "High Priority Projects" list and they're looking for more feedback from the community. Nearly ten years ago is when the Free Software Foundation began listing what they viewed as the High Priority Free Software Projects in a list. This list has over time contained some definite high-priority projects related to freeing Java and Adobe PDF support and open graphics drivers to some more obscure projects of high priority like a free version of Oracle Forms, a replacement to OpenDWG libraries for CAD files, automatic transcription software, etc. I've personally called out many of the FSF HPP for what they're worth with my thoughts over the years.
