Zentyal Linux, a usable Linux Server

Filed under
Linux

I've flip flopped over the years between many linux distros for Servers, from CentOS and Ubuntu following the great guides at Howtoforge while learning how different things work. Now however i'm looking for quick and easy solutions to problems.

That is what we have here, a quick and easy solution to MANY different problems..

Zentyal Linux is based on Ubuntu 10.04 and as such pulls in from the Ubuntu repositories, not a bad place to spart from as Ubuntu has a good level of Hardware Support and a huge collection of apps online. However you are no installing Ubuntu or Ubuntu Server as such here. As Zentyal is designed to do as much of the work for setting up your server for you, and keep you away from the command line and Linux interface.

Intel and Clear Linux Project

  • Intel wants containers to be alone again, naturally
    Intel reckons that's harder to do with Linux containers as “underlying kernel still can be attacked from within the container.” That's bad because it means “all containers on the same host can be compromised, regardless of the intended isolation between them,” making multitennacy risky and therefore unlikely.
  • Docker Drives Interest in App Containerization Technologies
    The biggest example is CoreOS, a heavily venture-backed startup based in San Francisco that has already gained some early attention as a potential alternative to Docker. The company’s open source project dubbed Rocket has won backing from powerhouses like Google and Intel and others like Red Hat and VMware.
  • Intel offers hardware-level answer to container security challenges
    Intel has become the latest vendor to throw its weight behind the push to solve the security woes of containers with the launch of a new technology that promises to address the risks currently standing in the way of widespread production use from the hardware level up. It’s the latest fruit of the internal Clear Linux Project.
  • Intel wants data containers alone again
    The downside is that it does not work well with Linux containers as underlying kernel still can be attacked from within the container and all containers on the same host can be compromised.
  • What are containers and why do you need them?
    Containers are a solution to the problem of how to get software to run reliably when moved from one computing environment to another. This could be from a developer's laptop to a test environment, from a staging environment into production and perhaps from a physical machine in a data center to a virtual machine in a private or public cloud.
