Modern IT infrastructure needs to be highly flexible as the strain on servers, sites and databases grows and shrinks throughout the day. Cloud infrastructure is meant to make scaling simple by effectively outsourcing and commoditising your computing capacity so that, in theory, you can turn it on and off like a tap. However, most approaches to provisioning cloud servers are still based around the idea that you have fixed-size server “instances”, offering you infrastructure in large blocks that must each be provisioned and then configured to work together. This means your infrastructure scaling is less like having a handy tap and more like working out how many bottles of water you’ll need.
A recent post by Gil Tene raises the importance of an important, little known patch to Linux kernels that should be reviewed by all users and administrators of Linux systems, especially those who utilize Haswell processors. Tene reports that in particular users of Red Hat-based distributions (including CentOS 6.6 and Scientific Linux 6.6) should apply the patch as soon as possible. Even if your instance of Linux is running in a VM, that VM is most likely hosted on a Haswell machine if is on the popular cloud providers (Azure / Amazon /etc) and would benefit from the patch.
The OpenStack Infrastructure team manages all the services that developers in the OpenStack project interface with on a day-to-day basis, including the code review and continuous integration system, Wiki, IRC bots, and mailing lists.
We are also an open source project in our own right. All of the code and configurations used in our infrastructure is available in a series of public code repositories and all of our documentation is publicly available. This is in contrast to many other open source projects that either rely upon proprietary resources provided by a code hosting service, such as SourceForge or GitHub, or have a company with an IT staff that manages an infrastructure, like the Ubuntu project.
Everyone's slowly preparing for the OTA planned at the end of the month.
The list of issues that have been scheduled for this milestone can be
found on the ww22-2015 LP milestone . There are some connectivity
fixes on the way, but not only that - good stuff in overall. With the
release of OTA-4 the stable branch will officially become vivid based.
There's not too many visual changes coming with this switch, but there
are a few things we didn't back-port to 14.09 before.
Of course, the timing all depends on the state of the candidate images,
so no promises on the release date yet.
What began as an experiment in consumer electronics in the early 1990s celebrates its 20th anniversary as a staple of enterprise computing this week. Java has become a dominant platform, able to run wherever the Java Virtual Machine is supported, forging ahead despite the rise of rival languages and recent tribulations with security.
Two of world’s most wanted hackers had committed suicide and no one still knows why. Aaron Swartz and Jonathan James, both hackers by profession and most wanted by the FBI have committed suicide in face of the federal investigation against their hacking crimes.
Interested thing is both hackers were not connected to each other in any way but were being tried for hacking by the same department and the case was being overseen by the same Assistant United States Attorney Stephen Heymann. Could this have any hand in their suicides.
Software installation is much easier in Makulu Linux. A variety of installed Personal Package Archives are configured to make finding and installing more software much more convenient than it often is with other distros. Steam and PlayonLinux are both included as well. Want more? How about Netflix and Popcorn Time? Both applications are fully supported.
Sony’s Xperia Z4 Tablet is the Japanese firm’s best yet, with small bezels, a bright screen and a waterproof body – but it’s when you add a full keyboard that things start to get interesting.
Sony has a solid heritage in tablets with two excellent entries into the Z series before now. While they have failed to sell particularly well, they have been some of the best Android tablets available. In fact, they have only been let down by the poor amount of tablet-optimised software for Android. That app gap between Android tablets and Apple’s iPad no longer exists.
Mozilla released version 38 of the Firefox web browser last week, and the updated version is available now in the Fedora repositories for Fedora 21, and for users running Fedora 22 pre-release versions. As has been the case since Firefox starting rapidly releasing new versions every 6 weeks or so, there are a handful of new shiny features, and many, many bugfixes.
Red Hat's repackaging and integration effort aims to ease app delivery across all platforms: bare metal, VMs, and containers
The company's new offering provides packaged engineered hardware to enable an organization to deploy and manage an OpenStack cloud, taking on VCE's vBlock.
In terms of OpenStack, Singh said that Walmart did a bunch of proof of concepts and came across OpenStack. Among the reasons why Walmart chose OpenStack is its flexibility and the ability to meet all of Walmart's needs. Perhaps even more important, though, for Walmart was the community surrounding OpenStack.
When Linux first became a serious challenger for enterprise-class infrastructure, traditional IT vendors had to contend and to rationalize just what exactly this open source thing was. The initial response from many vendors was to attempt to stop it, but it only grew.
And as open source grew, many mostly younger businesses learned to leverage it for great commercial success; however, the titans of the previous era have had challenges adapting their business models to embrace open source successfully.
This myth ties back to several of the previously mentioned misconceptions about open-source cloud computing. A perceived lack of security, support and maturity and the idea that open source is in the hands of too many entities gives IT and business executives the sense that open-source cloud can not yet be trusted to support the most vital processes in the enterprise.
On May 17, we announced that Linux kernel 4.0.4 and Linux kernel 3.10.79 LTS were available for download, but another important kernel was published on the same day - Linux kernel 3.14.43 LTS, which is currently used in various GNU/Linux distributions.
Canonical may still be mostly known for its Ubuntu Linux distribution, but the company now also offers a number of (paid) services for enterprises, often with a focus on the OpenStack platform. At the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver, Canada, Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth today introduced his company’s latest offering: Ubuntu Advantage Storage.
