  • Call for nominations to the LoCo Council

    As you may know the LoCo council members are set with a two years term. Due this situation we are facing the difficult task of replacing existing members and a whole set of restaffing. A special thanks to all the existing members for all of the great contributions they have made while serving with us on the LoCo Council.

  • Kubernetes on Ubuntu VMs

    Recently /u/Elezium asked the following question on Reddit: Tools to deploy k8s on-premise on top of Ubuntu. This is a question that a lot of people have answered using a combination of MAAS/VMWare/OpenStack for on premise multi-node Kubernetes. If you’re looking for something with more than a two or three machines, those resources are bountiful.

    However, the question came to “How do I do Kubernetes on an existing Ubuntu VM”. This is different from LXD, which is typically a good solution — though without a bunch of networking modifications it won’t be reachable from outside that VM.

Canonical/Ubuntu: Canonical's Engineering Tech Lead, Field Product Manager, and Designers'/Developers' Updates

  • A Complete Look At Spectre V1/V2/V4 & Meltdown
    Canonical's Engineering Tech Lead, Gavin Guo, has passed along a big slide deck on a presentation he is preparing about the Spectre and Meltdown CPU vulnerabilities.
