Debian Alliance Eyes The Enterprise

Filed under
Linux

The effort to put a Debian GNU/Linux based distribution into the enterprise consciousness may have picked up some steam this week. The DCC Alliance of Debian based GNU/Linux distributions released their DCC 3.0 core as part of an effort to further adoption and standardization and potentially offer an alternative to Red Hat and Novell/SUSE.

The DCC, which originally stood for Debian Common Core, now just stands for DCC Common Core due to trademark issues with the use of the term "Debian."

The DCC Alliance was originally announced in August and includes Linspire, formerly known as Lindows; Sun Wah Linux; Xandros; UserLinux; MEPIS; credativ; LinEX; and Knoppix distributions. It also has its share of detractors who claim the effort won't influence enterprise adoption of Debian.

The DCC 3.0 itself is not a distribution but rather a Linux Standards Base (LSB) 3.0 compliant Debian core.

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers. NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground. VDI works a treat in such spots. Read more
