Mandriva's answer to Ubuntu One : Click'n' Backup

Filed under
MDV
Web

Ever since the launch of Ubuntu One there has been a lot of speculation about it.. Unlike other Ubuntu/Canonical offering Ubuntu One didn't received good response from audience..There are many reasons for it..

  1. Ubuntu One / Launchpad is still not fully open..

  2. Ubuntu One is restricted only to Ubuntu to Ubuntu sync, making it inaccessible for other distro and OS users..
  3. Ubuntu One offers high cost for 10Gb ...

Seeing all the response from audience Mandriva SA came with shrewd alternative and hit the nail at the right time.. Mandriva Click'n'Backup has quite a few advantages over Ubuntu One..

  1. Source Code is available for studying therefore its fully Open.

  2. It is available for all Operating system, be it Windows or Mac or whole range of Linux.. no restrictions for any users..
  3. Offers better solution that Ubuntu one at lower price...

Click’n Backup for you and your data

blog.mandriva.com: We are happy to launch a new service, we hope it to be a long time companion for Mandriva Linux:

Click'n Backup

We face two apparently contradictory needs these days. One is that our files are valuable - we work with them, put a lot of our lives in them (photos, emails, movies, songs, memories) - we want, we need them to be safe.

The other need is that, more and more, we want to access, modify our files, wherever we are - not only when we are on our computer or at home - we move and we want our data to move with us. And we want this to be simple.

Click’n Backup is an answer to this. We have:

PayPal Reduces Costs 10x With Open Source CI

The bigger you are, the more small efficiencies add up. Manivannan Selvaraj's talk from LinuxCon North America gives us a detailed inside view of how PayPal cut operating costs by a factor of ten, while greatly increasing performance and user convenience. Everything has to be fast now. We can't have downtimes. No going offline for maintenance, no requesting resources with a days-long ticketing process. Once upon a time virtual machines were the new miracle technology that enabled more efficient resource use. But that was then. Selvaraj describes how PayPal's VMs were operating at low efficiency. They started with a single giant customized Jenkins instance running over 40,000 jobs. It was a single point of failure, not scalable, and inflexible. Read more

Turn Raspberry Pi 3 Into a Powerful Media Player With RasPlex

I have hundreds of movies, TV shows and music that I have bought over the years. They all reside on my Plex Media Server. Just like books, I tend to buy these works and watch them once in awhile, instead of relying on "streaming" services like Netflix where content isn’t always available forever. If you already have Plex Media Server running, then you can build an inexpensive Plex Media Player using Raspberry Pi 3 and RasPlex. Plex Media Server is based on open source Kodi (formerly XBMC), but is not fully open source. Plex Media Center has a friendly interface and it’s very easy to set up a media center (See our previous tutorial on how to install it on a Raspberry Pi 3 or on another dedicated Linux machine).

7 Linux predictions for 2017

Last year I made a set of predictions of events that I thought would happen in the tech world (focused primarily on Linux and free software). I was mostly right. This has emboldened me to make another set of predictions for 2017. I have no inside knowledge on any of these—I am basing this entirely on the twin scientific principles of star maths and wishy thinking. Read more

  • GTK Lands A Big Refactoring Of OpenGL Code
    In addition to Red Hat's Benjamin Otte working on a Vulkan renderer for GTK4's GSK, he's also been working on a big refactoring of the OpenGL code that's now been merged to master. OpenGL is very important for GTK4 as it will play a big role in rendering with GSK. With this "large GL refactoring", a big clean-up was done of the OpenGL GDK code, affecting the X11, Win32, Wayland, and Mir code too. Some of the specific work includes no longer using buffer-age information, passing the actual OpenGL context, and simplifying the code. More details via this Git commit.
  • A Vulkan Renderer For GNOME's GTK+ GSK Is In Development
    A Vulkan back-end is in development for GNOME's GTK's tool-kit new GTK Scene Kit (GSK) code. Benjamin Otte has begun experimenting with a Vulkan back-end for GTK's GSK code with GTK Scene Kit being one of the big additions in development for the major GTK+ 4.0 milestone. GSK implements a scene graph to allow for more complex graphical control of widgets and other improvements to its graphics pipeline. GSK was merged back in October and currently uses OpenGL for rendering while there is now a branched Vulkan renderer.
