Even seasoned system administrators can overlook Linux workstation backups or do them in a haphazard, unsafe manner. At a minimum, you should ￼￼set up encrypted workstation backups to external storage. But it’s also nice to use zero-knowledge backup tools for off-site/cloud backups for more peace of mind.
Let’s explore each of these methods in more depth. You can also download the entire set of recommendations as a handy guide and checklist.

The Linux Foundation’s open source Zephyr Project received considerable attention at this February’s Embedded Linux Conference (ELC). Although there are still no shipping products running this lightweight real-time operating system (RTOS) for microcontrollers, Fabien Parent and Neil Armstrong of the French embedded firm BayLibre shared their experiences in developing a wearable device that may end up being the first Zephyr-based consumer electronics product.
ApacheCon is just a couple weeks away -- coming up May 16-18 in Miami. We asked Shawn McKinney, Software Architect at Symas Corporation, to share some details about his talk at ApacheCon. His presentation, “The Anatomy of a Secure Web Application Using Java EE, Spring Security, and Apache Fortress” will focus on an end-to-end application security architecture for an Apache Wicket Web app running in Tomcat. McKinney explains more in this interview.
Next month, the world’s leading automotive experts and engineers will gather at Automotive Linux Summit in Japan to discuss the future of connected cars and collaborate on the open source technologies driving innovation in the automotive arena.
In our first three installments in this series, we learned what Kubernetes is, why it's a good choice for your datacenter, and how it was descended from the secret Google Borg project. Now we're going to learn what makes up a Kubernetes cluster.
A Kubernetes cluster is made of a master node and a set of worker nodes. In a production environment these run in a distributed setup on multiple nodes. For testing purposes, all the components can run on the same node (physical or virtual) by using minikube.
