  • Is Red Hat’s Open Source Software Threatening Enterprise Software? [Ed: No, FOSS is "Enterprise Software", but it's clear the author tries to imply otherwise (proprietary software FUD)]

    Earlier in the series, we discussed Red Hat’s (RHT) better-than-expected fiscal 2Q18 earnings as well as its role in the popularization and adoption of open source software. Leading enterprise software companies who were earlier wary of open source software have jumped on the bandwagon. For example, Microsoft (MSFT) is increasingly turning towards Linux and the open source software movement.

  • Red Hat, Inc. (RHT) Stake Lowered by Fiera Capital Corp
  • Alliancebernstein L.P. Has $36.11 Million Position in Red Hat, Inc. (RHT)
  • Fedora 27 Beta Released

    After being delayed by two weeks due to bugs, the beta of Fedora 27 is shipping this morning.

    Fedora 27 Beta ships with a variety of updates as outlined in this morning's Fedora 27 feature overview ranging from the latest GNOME components to plenty of "under the hood" work.

  • Announcing the release of Fedora 27 Beta

    From the desk of Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller: The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Fedora 27 Beta, the next big step towards our exciting Fedora 27 release in November.

  • Where is the beta for Fedora Server 27?

    The Fedora Project just released the beta version of Fedora 27, including Fedora Workstation and Fedora Atomic Host. Since Fedora ships with three editions, you may be wondering: where’s Fedora 27 Server beta?

  • Stepping down from the Fedora Project

    Joining the Fedora Project is one of the best choices I have ever made. I am glad I discovered the amazing world of free and open-source software. I am grateful for many opportunities provided. I am proud for my contributions to the project and the community.

    The Fedora Project has an amazing community - its contributors, who connect from all parts of the globe, contribute their time, talent and skills for the benefit of millions of users worldwide.

  • ansible retired from epel7
  • Ansible RPMS are no longer in EPEL-7

    Ansible packages are no longer shipped in EPEL-7 as they have been included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extras (and similarly in CentOS-7 and hopefully Scientific Linux 7.4).

  • DHFL Pramerica Tastes Success With Red Hat Mobile App

    Life insurance companies are using open source to address IT challenges, transform and modernizeIT to help accelerate innovation, and achieve greater agility and efficiency.  In one such moves, DHFL Pramerica Life Insurance Company Ltd. (DPLI), a Gurgaon-based life insurance company, implemented Red Hat Mobile Application Platform to strengthen its mobile app presence in capabilities for their sales advisors, and enabling them to innovate faster.

    DPLI was looking for a technology partner to help them realize this by balancing their IT investments. The all-new state-of-the-art AceApp, designed to provide a 24/7 mobile office on-the-go for sales advisors, is equipped with features that can support the entire customer lifecycle journey with DPLI.

    [...]

    He added that Red Hat Mobile Application Platform and JBoss BRMS have enabled DPLI to be more agile and reach a wider variety of customers with specific demands.”

  • Ansible 2.4 available now in Fedora

    Recently, the Ansible Community recently released version 2.4 of their open source automation engine. Ansible 2.4 is available for installation in both Fedora 25, and Fedora 26 — and is also available for pre-release versions of Fedora 27. Ansible is a configuration management and application deployment tool that allows system administrators and software engineers to automate the setting up and deployment of systems and applications.

  • Taking off Red Hat, but not Fedora

    Red Hat, the name means a lot of things to me. Red Hat Linux was the first Linux distribution I ever saw and worked with. Later I moved into Fedora, and it became my defacto distribution from Core 1 days. Started contributing to the project formally from 2006, and joined in Red Hat for the first time back in 2008. People kept asking me why do I wear my Red Fedora everywhere, why do I feel so enthusiastic all the time? For me, it is always the people, the company itself started to provide a healthy relationship with the businesses and Free Software vendors (including itself). It is still standing tall and growing because of the people in the company, who still cares about Freedom. I left Red Hat for 11 months in between, and then came back to work on Fedora itself as Fedora Cloud Engineer in the Fedora Engineering team. Later Sayan also joined the team.

  • Lazy Migration in CRIU’s master branch

    Another interesting change about CRIU is that it started as x86_64 only and now it is also available on aarch64, ppc64le and s390x. The support to run on s390x has just been added with the previous 3.4 release and starting with Fedora 27 the necessary kernel configuration options are also active on s390x in addition to the other supported architectures.

  • Microservices and containers: 5 pitfalls to avoid

    Because microservices and containers are a match made in heaven, it might seem like nothing could go wrong. Let’s get these babies into production as quickly as possible, then kick back and wait for the IT promotions and raises to start flooding in. Right?

    (We’ll pause while the laughter subsides.)

    Yeah, sorry. That’s just not how it works. While the two technologies can be a powerful combination, realizing their potential doesn’t happen without some effort and planning. In previous posts, we’ve tackled what you should know at the start. But what about the most common problems organizations encounter when they run microservices in containers?

  • This Week in Numbers: Container Storage Preferences for Kubernetes

    The types of logical storage structures used in today’s Kubernetes deployments offer some deeper revelations into the nature of workloads being deployed. Block storage is king, having been cited by two-thirds (66 percent) of respondents in our survey for The State of the Kubernetes Ecosystem as being involved with their Kubernetes implementations.

    Few deployments are relegated to only one type of logical storage, so it is telling that just fewer than half of the respondents (46 percent) cited file storage as the type they’re using. Newer, cloud-native applications with microservices architectures and that utilize databases or data structures, typically don’t need a file system because they are not interacting with data through an operating system. A 46 percent figure is quite high, signaling that more integration with older application types is taking place.

    Object storage is used by 29 percent of respondents, which is relatively high compared with adoption rates for object storage that we’ve seen in the past. Since object storage is scalable, developers working on distributed systems likely have experience with it already. In addition, object storage is often used to deliver static content for websites, which is also a common type of workload for Kubernetes.

  • Patch CDK #1: Build & Release

    Happens all the time. You often come across a super cool open source project you would gladly contribute but setting up the development environment and learning to patch and release your fixes puts you off. The Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes (CDK) is not an exception. This set of blog posts will shed some light on the most dark secrets of CDK.

  • Maxta adds Red Hat in plan to help customers dodge ‘VMware tax’

    Hyper-converged infrastructure maker Maxta has announced it now supports the Red Hat Virtualization hypervisor and can allow customers to migrate data from VMware to Red Hat or run VM in both environments.

  • ORock Technologies Named to Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider Program
  • ​SUSE Studio merges with Open Build Service

    When SUSE first introduced SUSE Studio in 2010, it was a radical change. You could build your own Linux distribution without being a Linux expert. Today, we use custom Linux images inside containers, virtual machines (VM), and every cloud worth its name every day. So SUSE is updating SUSE Studio by merging it with its Open Build Service (OBS) to create a better tool for bundling packages with Linux distributions to deliver customized Linux images. The new product's name will be SUSE Studio Express.

  • When Microsoft met SUSE: This Windows-Linux partnership gets stronger every day [Ed: "Linux purists hated that partnership". Not Linux. Not purists. GNU. And people who value freedom.]

    Linux purists hated that partnership. But my, how things have changed! Today, Microsoft has joined The Linux Foundation; all the major Linux distributions, including Debian and Red Hat are available on Microsoft's Azure cloud; and Microsoft recently joined the Open Source Initiative.

  • Smart Card Support in Red Hat Enterprise Linux

    Recent Red Hat Enterprise Linux releases see an expansion in support of the smart card related use cases. However customers usually have a mixed environment and standardize on a specific version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for period of time. It is important to understand the evolution of the smart card related feature to plan your deployment and understand what capabilities are available in what version of the operating system.

  • Why Ansible is the future of Red Hat—and automated devops

    Ansible is the Rodney Dangerfield of Red Hat’s software portfolio: It, too, “don’t get no respect.” Despite the Ansible automated configuration management tool helping to sell Red Hat’s hybrid cloud story, delivering six deals worth more than $1 million and one deal worth over $5 million, not a single analyst in the latest financial call bothered to check on Ansible’s progress. Why? They’re fixated on OpenShift, and perhaps rightly so. OpenShift is Red Hat’s most obvious successor to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) throne.

  • Red Hat launches Linux platform for SAP software environments

    Open source solutions provider Red Hat has announced the launch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP Solutions, an enterprise Linux platform optimised for running SAP software deployments.

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP Solutions aims to provide a smoother path for organisations seeking to integrate or merge their heterogeneous SAP software environments, offering a single, standardised platform for big data analysis and management projects.

  • SAP Cloud Is Embracing the Open Source World [Ed: No, it does not. SAP is wholly proprietary, it just uses GNU/Linux as the underlying platform.]

    SAP is making inroads in the open source world. The software heavyweight announced today at the SAP TechEd 2017 conference that it is joining the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and the Open API Initiative (OAI). SAP CTO Bjoern Goerke will join the CNCF governing board, and the company said it will be a major contributor to the group.

    Both CNCF and OAI are part of the Linux Foundation. CNCF is home to Kubernetes, the open source project that acts as an orchestration layer for containers. OAI is focused on creating, evolving, and promoting a vendor neutral description format for ReST APIs. ReST stands for Representational State Transfer, an architectural style for designing networked applications.

  • An introduction to the Django ORM
    One of the most powerful features of Django is its Object-Relational Mapper (ORM), which enables you to interact with your database, like you would with SQL. In fact, Django's ORM is just a pythonical way to create SQL to query and manipulate your database and get results in a pythonic fashion. Well, I say just a way, but it's actually really clever engineering that takes advantage of some of the more complex parts of Python to make developers' lives easier.
