Preparing the ground for the Fedora Workstation

Filed under

Red Hat

Things are moving forward for the Fedora Workstation project. For those of you who don’t know about it, it is part of a broader plan to refocus Fedora around 3 core products with clear and distinctive usecase for each. The goal here is to be able to have a clear definition of what Fedora is and have something that for instance ISVs can clearly identify and target with their products. At the same time it is trying to move away from the traditional distribution model, a model where you primarily take whatever comes your way from upstream, apply a little duct tape to try to keep things together and ship it. That model was good in the early years of Linux existence, but it does not seem a great fit for what people want from an operating system today.

Fedora 21 To Evaluate Remote Journal Logging, 64-bit ARM Emulation

Filed under
Red Hat

- Remote journal logging for systemd's journal. The feature elaborates, "The high-level goal is to have a mechanism where journal logging can be extended to keep a copy of logs on a remote server, without requiring any maintenance, done fairly efficiently and in a secure way." To this remoute journal logging with systemd's journald would be a receiver side systemd-journal-remote process accepting messages in the Journal Export Format and then on the sender side would be a new systemd-journal-upload component. Communication between the server and client daemons would be over HTTPS.

More evidence that the Linux wars have moved to OpenStack

Ubuntu

It’s sort of funny that the press release announcing the new Ubuntu Linux 14.04 LTS release seems as focused on Ubuntu OpenStack as on Linux per se. It’s studded with partner testimonials from Cisco, Mellanox, NTT Software, Brocade lauding Ubuntu OpenStack. But then again, that makes sense given that the vendor battlefield has shifted from core operating system to core cloud infrastructure, where Canonical OpenStack has gained traction with Hewlett Packard and other big cloud providers.
