Before it was a database company, MongoDB was a cloud company. Founded in 2007 and originally known as 10gen, the company originally intended to build a Java cloud platform. After building a database it called MongoDB, the company realized that the infrastructure software it had built to support its product was more popular than the product itself, and the PaaS company pivoted to become a database company – eventually taking the obvious step of renaming itself to reflect its new purpose.
The C++17 standard is taking shape and adding new features to the vintage programming language. This major update aims to make C++ an easier language to work with and brings powerful technical specifications.
Instead of starting a potentially very long, conceptual conversation about what DevOps means, it’s more effective to identify a small but non-trivial project or area of your business that would benefit from being able to develop and deploy software faster, at scale… and more easily.
It's a conundrum: You've got deep learning software, which benefits greatly from GPU acceleration, wrapped up in a Docker container and ready to go across thousands of nodes. But wait -- apps in Docker containers can't access the GPU because they're, well, containerized.
Well, now they can.
Nvidia, developer of the CUDA standard for GPU-accelerated programming, is releasing a plugin for the Docker ecosystem that makes GPU-accelerated computing possible in containers. With the plugin, applications running in a Docker container get controlled access to the GPU on the underlying hardware via Docker's own plug-in system.
Tibbo's latest complement to TBS is a Linux-based Tibbo Project PCB (LTPP). The new LTPP3 board runs Tibbo's own, highly polished and updated distribution of Linux and is based on the powerful Texas Instruments 1GHz Cortex-A8 Sitara CPU. What sets the LTPP3 apart from plain vanilla products, such as Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone, is its mechanical and electrical compatibility with Tibbo's Tibbit blocks and size-3 Tibbo Project Box enclosures. Uses for the LTPP3 include running Embedded AggreGate, Node.js and TiOS applications, not to mention use as a generic Linux board.
Red Hat hosted its annual Red Hat Summit customer event June 28-30 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with a theme of harnessing the power of participation. Once again, the DevNation developer event, which is the successor to JBoss World, was co-located with Red Hat Summit. For JBoss, 2016 is a particularly significant year as it marks 10 years since Red Hat acquired it. At DevNation, Red Hat announced the new JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7 release, providing new cloud-enhanced capabilities for Red Hat's flagship middleware platform. JBoss is now also working to help enable Java for the container era, with the launch of the MicroProfile Project, an effort to optimize enterprise Java for a microservices architecture. Java wasn't the only focus of DevNation this year either, as Microsoft took center stage too, announcing the availability of its .NET Core for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the Red Hat Summit and DevNation 2016 events.
Even though there have been no major changes announced to the OpenStack platform of late, it was still one of the most talked about subjects at this year’s Red Hat Summit. Red Hat plays a significant role in the development of the platform and is very proud of its contribution to the community.
In 2007, when 3scale, Inc. was founded, some people thought it was crazy to be investing so much time and energy into API. But Steven Willmott, CEO of 3scale, Inc., said that even at that time his team knew that the future was API-driven, and they wanted to help that happen.
Today, July 1, 2016, after many months of hard work, the development team behind the SuperTuxKart open-source racing game has been more than happy to inform the Linux community about the availability of the final SuperTuxKart 0.9.2 release.
In mid-June, SuperTuxKart 0.9.2 received a Release Candidate (RC) build, which gave users early access to the numerous goodies coming into the final release. Among these, there's the new AI (Artificial Intelligence) support for the soccer mode, which now offers three arenas under the "Copa Antarctica" Antarctica Cup umbrella.
