  • Red Hat Pushes the Edge Further with Updates to Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes

    Red Hat Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced Red Hat OpenShift 4.9 and Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes 2.4, both designed to drive consistency of the open hybrid cloud to the furthest reaches of the enterprise network. The new capabilities, which include the general availability of single node OpenShift for the small, full featured enterprise Kubernetes cluster, help organizations scale existing development, deployment and management workflows to meet increased interest in information and services.

  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2 Now Generally Available

    Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2, the latest version of its highly-scalable and agile cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform. Designed to help organizations succeed in a hybrid cloud world, Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2 delivers tighter integration with Red Hat OpenShift, so customers can run both new and traditional applications in parallel with improved network capacity, security features, storage, performance and efficiency.

  • Red Hat Enhances Developer Experience on OpenShift with Latest Portfolio Updates

    Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced a series of updates in its portfolio of developer tools and programs aimed at delivering greater productivity, security and scale for developers building applications on Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. With updates to tools like Red Hat OpenShift Pipelines, Red Hat OpenShift GitOps and the Red Hat build of Quarkus — as well as an expanding roster of training resources available on Kube By Example — Kubernetes developers can more easily build, automate and deploy cloud-native applications for hybrid multicloud environments.

  • Red Hat OpenShift, ACM Updates Flex Kubernetes at the Edge

    Red Hat announced updated versions of its Kubernetes-focused OpenShift and Advanced Cluster Management (ACM) platforms, highlighting the vendor’s focus on providing organizations with more flexibility in managing their container-based infrastructure in edge locations.

    OpenShift 4.9 now supports a single-node architecture targeted at edge environments. This option combines worker and control capabilities into one server, which reduces the need to rely on a centralized Kubernetes control plane and addresses the challenge of space-constrained environments with a smaller deployment footprint.

    OpenShift continues to offer support for 3-node clusters and remote worker nodes.

  • My 5 favorite Linux container images | Enable Sysadmin

    When you start using containers in earnest, you quickly realize that there are many container images out there. One of open source's greatest strengths is choice, and with so many images available, you have plenty of options when you need an image to base your work upon. I find myself going back to the same few images pretty frequently. There are five in particular that consistently make me a happy fledgling cloud architect.

  • [Former IBM executive] The Supply Chain Economy - A New Categorization of the US Economy

    A few weeks ago I attended The Supply Chain Economy: Understanding Innovation in Services, a virtual seminar sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations with economists Mercedes Delgado and Karen Mills discussing their recent paper A New Categorization of the U.S. Economy.

    The debate about the drivers of innovation and job creation has long been centered on manufacturing versus services. The predominant view has been that manufacturing drives good wages, economic growth, and innovation as measured by its large share of patents, while services provide lower-wage jobs, less innovation and significantly fewer patents.

    But Delgado and Mills argue that categorizing the economy in terms of manufacturing versus services is no longer meaningful. Instead, they’ve proposed an alternative framework for understanding the drivers of innovation and economic performance that’s focused on the suppliers of both goods and services: the supply chain economy.

    “A long academic and policy debate has focused on the role of the manufacturing capacity of a country in its economic and innovative performance,” wrote the authors. “This question has become even more relevant as the U.S. economy has shown a large decline in manufacturing employment in recent decades, in part due to increased import competition. In this debate, the predominant view is that a country's manufacturing capacity drives innovation because of externalities associated with the production of intermediate goods (e.g., machine tools, automation equipment, and semiconductors) that improve the efficiency of the innovation process. Most prior work on innovation focused on a narrow view of suppliers as producers of intermediate goods. However, in today's economy suppliers increasingly produce services (e.g., enterprise software).”

Fedora and IBM/Red Hat/CentOS Leftovers

  • Fedora Linux 35 Release Party Recordings Available Now! – Fedora Community Blog

    The Fedora community celebrated the release of Fedora Linux 35 in the third installment of our virtual Release Parties on 12–13 November 2021. A big thank you to everyone who helped to build Fedora Linux 35 as well as the organizers, participants, and attendees at the event! The recordings are now available for viewing in a YouTube Playlist. We had 12 info sessions, 3 socials, and the Fedora Museum WorkAdventure for the “Hallway Track”. We also had a session of the virtual team building event “Beat the Bomb“—a collaborative gaming activity that resulted in hilarity and chaos!

  • Fedora 36 Planning To Run Wayland By Default With NVIDIA's Proprietary Driver - Phoronix

    While all of the software components are out there now for being able to run NVIDIA's proprietary driver stack with modern (GBM-based) Wayland compositors by default, including XWayland support, Fedora Workstation currently defaults to using an X.Org based session with the green binary blob. However, for Fedora 36 next spring they are planning on using the Wayland-based desktop here too. Fedora Workstation for a while now has defaulted successfully to using the Wayland-based GNOME Shell desktop but with the NVIDIA proprietary driver they have kept to using the X.Org session. Thanks to the NVIDIA 495 series driver introducing GBM support and other improvements made to accelerated XWayland, etc, running NVIDIA's proprietary driver stack for daily Wayland-based desktop use is becoming viable.

  • Red Hat's CentOS Stream 9 Linux arrives | ZDNet

    Almost a year ago to the day, Red Hat changed CentOS from being a Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) clone to being a developmental rolling Linux distribution, CentOS Stream. Many users weren't happy. As a result, several replacement CentOS/RHEL clones, such as AlmaLinux and Rocky Linux, got their start. But, Red Hat continued with its plans to use CentOS to foreshadow the next edition of RHEL. Now, the new CentOS project is showing off its latest and greatest in its first totally new release: CentOS 9.

EasyOS version 3.1.13 released

Version 3.1.13 does not have SeaMonkey, instead has BlueGriffon HTML editor and Balsa email client. Let me know how they go. If any problems, they can be changed. I am planning to create Claws and Sylpheed email client PETs for comparison, as Balsa spam filtering seems a bit weak. I received an email that samba is still broken in 3.1.11. I didn't get time to check that one. So that is something we need to look at. I tested booting up in RAM (& optionally disable drives). Works fine, there is one error message during bootup about a missing file, but that doesn't matter. Getting closer to the next major release, that will be 3.2. Read more

  • Learn more about distributed databases with ShardingSphere

    Apache ShardingSphere is an open source distributed database, plus an ecosystem users and developers need for their database to provide a customized and cloud-native experience. In the three years since it joined the Apache Foundation, the ShardingSphere core team has worked hard with the community to create an open source, robust, and distributed database and a supporting ecosystem. ShardingSphere doesn't quite fit into the usual industry mold of a simple distributed database middleware solution. ShardingSphere recreates the distributed pluggable system, enabling actual user implementation scenarios to thrive and contributing valuable solutions to the community and the database industry.
