Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH -- based in Vienna, Austria -- offers enterprise server virtualization solutions, including the open source project Proxmox Virtual Environment (VE), which combines container-based virtualization and KVM/QEMU on one web-based management interface. The company was founded in 2005 by brothers Martin and Dietmar Maurer. In 2014, the company joined the Linux Foundation to deepen its commitment to virtualization technologies such as KVM.
In this exclusive interview, Dietmar Maurer, CTO of Proxmox, talks about how virtualization is driving the modern IT infrastructure and how high availability (HA) directly affects business operations.
An iTWire article appears to have resulted in Linux Australia seeing the folly of not having proper arrangements in place for hosting its website.
Further, a member of Linux Australia has suggested the office-bearers should resign en masse for not anticipating a breakdown in hosting the organisation's website recently.
Linux Australia secretary, Sae Ra Germaine, posted to the Linux-aus mailing list in April to explain why the organisation experienced server downtime, ultimately because the team charged with managing this task, while recognising a risk of disruption, did not engage with the University hosting the server instead choosing only to liaise with ex-employees, and discontinued searching for a new host between December 2015 and March 2016.
It might bear a passing resemblance to ET, but Mycroft's smart home system is more than a pretty face: it's an attempt to define what it means to be human through technology.
The first seeds of the open source home hardware AI platform that was to become Mycroft came to Joshua Montgomery during a refit of a Kansas maker-and-enterpreneurship space he was setting up. Montgomery wanted the building to have the same abilities as the systems seen on classic sci-fi films and series.
"It was inspired by the Star Trek computers, by Jarvis in Iron Man," Montgomery told ZDNet. He wanted to create the type of artificial intelligence platform that "if you spoke to it when you walked in the room, it could control the music, control the lights, the doors" and more.
Yesterday, we reported on the release of Linux kernel 4.6.2, Linux kernel 4.5.7, Linux kernel 4.4.13 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.14.72 LTS, and it now looks like Linux kernel 4.1.26 LTS has been released into the wild as well.
With all of the negative press surrounding Windows 10, many folks in my private life are asking me about alternatives. Believe it or not, Linux is often the answer. The first thing I ask them is, for what do you use your computer? Almost everyone tells me things like Facebook, email, and word processing. Well, a combination of Google Chrome and LibreOffice on top of an easy-to-use distro meets those needs perfectly.
Last week, Clem Lefebvre took to the Linux Mint blog to announce that the beta releases of the upcoming Linux Mint 18 release were “just around the corner.” Just under a week after that announcement, Lefebvre has made good on his promise, publishing download links to the Mint 18 beta.
The Cinnamon release comes in at 1.6 GB while the MATE release is an even larger 1.7 GB, which is strange considering MATE is supposed to be the more conservative, lighter-weight version of the two. In the Cinnamon edition, the desktop has been upgraded to version 3.0; you can see an overview of its features in the Linux Scoop video below. Meanwhile, MATE was bumped to version 1.14.
Clement Lefebvre today announced the availability of Linux Mint 18 Beta in the Cinnamon and MATE flavors. Jan Kurik announced another delay in Fedora 24 development due to a bug that keeps Windows from booting after GRUB installation. Elsewhere, Jonathan Riddell announced the release of KDE neon for users and, apparently, there's been another Ubuntu "brouhaha" to report. Microsoft's Anthony Doherty was quoted as saying they're not tricking anyone into upgrading to Windows 10 while Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols today said that Microsoft is going "all open source, all the time."
Complementing the significant amount of Intel DRM driver code already vetted and queued up for the Linux 4.8 cycle via DRM-Next, more code was pulled in last night for the various Direct Rendering Manager drivers in preparation for this next kernel cycle later in the summer.
We have recently covered many news stories relating to the Gear Fit 2, but there was also the announcement of another Tizen based fitness wearable that we kinda overlooked, the Gear Icon X. At the time of the release it was not confirmed as a Tizen wearable device, which later our sources close to the situation confirmed, “Houston we have another Tizen device”.
Gumstix and Arrow launched a customizable DragonBoard 410C expansion board for UAV and MAV applications, that adds NimbeLink LTE and camera support.
Gumstix and Arrow Electronics announced the availability of a $149 variant of its AeroCore 2 board called the “AeroCore 2 Expansion Board for DragonBoard 410C.” This more advanced version of the existing Gumstix AeroCore 2 baseboard for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and micro-aerial vehicles (MAVs) uses Arrow’s DragonBoard 410C SBC for its controller brain, rather than usual Gumstix DuoVero COM. The combo not only offers a far more powerful Linux and Android compatible computer, but also a new MIPI-CSI-2 camera connector along with a connector for a NimbeLink LTE radio.
