Entroware's New Linux Workstation Rocks Ryzen Threadripper And 4x Nvidia RTX GPUs

Hardware

The Entroware Hades also has the distinction of being the company's first AMD system, and includes 5 different Ryzen Threadripper options for those who don't want any compromises when it comes to ripping threads: Ryzen TR 1900X (8 cores, 16 threads) all the way up to the Ryzen TR 2990WX (32 cores, 64 threads).

I don't immediately see any weaknesses here, beyond the sticker shock when scaling up the hardware loadouts. The Hades begins with the Fractal Design FD-CA-DEF-R6C-BK case. Connectivity on the front ports is ample, with 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 and 1 USB 3.0 Type-C port, as well as standard headphone and mic inputs. Moving to the back, you've got a total of eight USB SuperSpeed 3.1 ports (plus two additional ones at 10Gbps), 5x audio jacks, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and a dual-antenna Intel Wireless-AC connection.

The minimum Hades loadout is perhaps too anemic for a workstation with this much capability, and it's admittedly a system you could assemble yourself for less. For the baseline price tag of about 1770 Euros (including tax) you'll get a 3-year warranty, a Ryzen Threadripper 1900X, 16GB of DDR4 RAM at 2933MHz, a 120GB SSD, a GeForce GT 1030 and Ubuntu or Ubuntu MATE 18.04/18.10.

Security: Site SSL, Cynet an Ksplice-based Patching

  • Why You Should Use SSL on Your Website

    With the evolution of the internet, security threats have also risen to a great extent. [...] SSL is the digital certificate known as the “Secure Socket Layer” that provides the foundation for stronger security on a website. It acts as a shield and safeguard when sensitive information travels from one place to another between computers/servers. SSL can be defined as trustworthy files that cryptographically form an encrypted link between a browser and a web server. Any information that is sent or received on a page that is not secure can be hacked and intercepted by cyber-criminals and hackers. Important information, such as bank transaction details and personal details become accessible to hackers. A website that is encrypted with SSL binds a secure connection between the web browser and servers to ensure that no third party has access to your information.

  • Cynet Report Details Increase in Cyber Attacks During Pandemic

    Cynet has released a report detailing changes in cyberattacks observed across North America and Europe since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cynet compared the number of cyberattacks during the COVID-19 outbreak to the previous three months for several industry sectors and saw increases of more than 20 percent in the areas of finance (up 32%), food production (29%), and retail (23%).

  • Security Patching Made Simple for Linux HPC Instances in Oracle Cloud [Ed: Oracle pushing Ksplice as its Linux selling point]

    The explosion of data in today's computing landscape has fueled the need for even greater security to protect the applications and workloads, and is crucial to an organization's success and competitive advantage. This is equally true when running compute intensive high performance computing (HPC) applications that consume large amounts of data, which are critical to an organization’s business or research endeavors. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides a platform that can help keep HPC systems secure and improve the speed and stability of applications. Security patch management is a challenge given the sheer number of instances in HPC clustered environments. Often, HPC environments are left unpatched for long periods of time, leaving systems exposed due to delays caused by complex, time-consuming, and labor-intensive patch management processes. We'll describe three ways in which this is addressed with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. [...] Ksplice, Autonomous Linux, and the OS Management service are provided for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers at no additional cost. Oracle Linux HPC customers on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure enjoy additional benefits including free Oracle Linux Premier Support and price per performance advantages. Additionally, Oracle Linux is 100% application binary compatible with RHEL. This means that RHEL customers on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure can eliminate support fees by easily switching to Oracle Linux. HPC customers who leverage these advanced Linux patching technologies in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure benefit from improved system security, reduced downtime, simplified operations, and cost savings. To learn more about Oracle Cloud patch management options, sign up for an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure account today and take advantage of free cloud credits.

Automation controller builds on Raspberry Pi CM3+

Sfera Labs’ “Iono Pi Max” industrial controller runs Linux on a RPi Compute Module 3+ and offers 10/100 LAN, 3x USB, isolated CAN and serial, relay and analog I/Os, plus RTC, UPS, and more. Sfera Labs has launched an Iono Pi Max edge computing and industrial controller that “combines the high-reliability and bus interfaces of the Strato Pi product line with the I/O capabilities of Iono Pi.” We covered both the Strato Pi CAN and Iono Pi add-on boards for the Raspberry Pi in our 2017 Strato Pi CAN report.Automation controller builds on Raspberry Pi CM3+ Read more

Librem 14 Shipping in December

The Librem 14 is going to be a powerhouse with a six core, twelve thread, 4.70Ghz i7-10710U tenth generation Intel CPU. When we first announced the Librem 14 pre-order, we estimated shipping would begin in early Q4 2020 but unfortunately Intel has industry-wide supply issues with the i7-10th gen CPUs which has moved the ship date for the Librem 14 to December 2020. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the current $100 pre-order sale will continue for a bit longer. We also hope to finish some fresh Librem 14 prototypes in about a week, so we can share new pictures of the design. Read more
