The industry is excited about containers in application development, and it will yield significant value in the application-centric cloud
IBM has introduced enterprise-class containers to make it easier for clients to deliver production applications across their hybrid environments.
The ecosystem is based on Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux), but it adds role-based access control with a policy for each role, so no one can get to the system root and the root can’t see user data. All access is logged, so any attempts to penetrate the system can be traced. Policies are based on roles such as security admin, audit admin and sysadmin, and each file is tagged with a security level so some users can see it while others can’t.
“Docker is Linux containers for mere mortals,” Boyd Hemphill is fond of saying. The Director of Evangelism at container application management startup StackEngine organizes Docker Austin meetups, DevOps Days Austin and Container Days events. He has recently given a number of Docker 101 workshops around the country aimed at introducing DevOps professionals to the business advantages of embracing containers and the disposable development environments that they enable.
If your Unix/Linux servers are to be involved in an ISO 27001 audit, there are a lot of things you should be doing ahead of time to ensure that they won't end up generating findings. While there are many things you can do to secure the systems you manage, the key to getting a Unix system to pass an ISO 27001 audit is knowing what the auditors are likely to ask and what they will need to see.
The main features at a glance:
Using Sencha ExtJS 5.1.1 framework for the WebGUI
Add a new dashboard and widgets
Many internal improvements and bugfixes
Improved the internal network interface backend
Add Wi-Fi support. Only WPA & WPA2 is supported
Add VLAN support
The network interface configuration page has been modified. Now only the configuration values are displayed. Use the dashboard widget to show the state of all network interfaces.
The public key of the user must now be specified in the RFC 4716 SSH public key file format. It is possible to add multiple keys.
Option to turn off the collection of system performance statistics.
Use the browser local storage to store the WebGUI state (e.g. displayed grid columns, column width, …) instead of cookies.
It’s not really a surprise, but after just over six months since the “forking” of both Node.js and Docker, the two different projects have ended up back in some sort of alignment. For Node.js, it was the reunification with io.js under the Node.js Foundation, which was officially launched under the Linux Foundation’s umbrella. The Node.js and io.js technical development is now driven by a technical committee and hopefully this will all work out well for all.
As the CEO of Docker, Ben Golub is at the forefront of the container revolution. In only two years, Docker has grown into a huge ecosystem that is starting to see widespread adoption across the enterprise market. The company has nearly quadrupled in size, and the statistics for applications are even more impressive.
