Ubuntu/Canonical: Yahoo! Japan, ROSCon and ZFS/Zsys Improvements

  • Yahoo! Japan builds their IaaS environment with Canonical

    Yahoo! Japan, originally formed as a joint venture between Yahoo! and SoftBank, is one of the most popular internet advertising, search engines and e-commerce sites in the country and employs over 6000 people.

    Due to having such scale and volume of users, Yahoo! Japan required outside help to build their IaaS (infrastructure as a service) solution and OSS distributed storage solution. In 2013, Yahoo! Japan turned to Canonical and the two companies have grown the relationship ever since.

  • ROSCon 2019 – Canonical

    What an exhausting, yet intriguing few days. Huge thanks to Open Robotics et. al. for hosting and setting it up. The fantastic community came in full force with far more people than last year, more people than ROSCon JP and more people than I would have ever guessed. Which is to say, there were more friends to make

    This blog won’t cover everything that happened at ROSCon or cover any of the talks presented. This blog is for recap purposes, for anyone who couldn’t make it or for someone unsure whether or not they should come to the next one. If you were there, you know how it all went, and if you weren’t, then a paragraph wouldn’t do the talks justice anyway. If you want information about the talks or presentations head over to the official ROSCon 2019 site or our announcement post and see what you can find. For now though, let’s discuss.

  • ZFS/Zsys Improvements Are Already Underway For Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    While Ubuntu 19.10 just shipped two weeks ago with its initial desktop install support to a root ZFS file-system option, feature work is already happening of ZFS changes destined for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Ubuntu's Zsys daemon being built around ZFS' advanced feature set.

    With Ubuntu 19.10 in the Ubiquity installer is just the single (experimental) option at install-time for a guided ZFS root file-system setup. For Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, Ubiquity is expected to expand upon that and also offer ZFS options through the advanced partitioning area of the desktop installer.

  • Remove ^M (CTRL-M) Characters from a File in Linux - Putorius

    Operating systems have different ways to handle a newline in their text editors. For example Windows uses a specific carriage return (CR) which is depicted as ^M on Linux, followed by a line feed (LF) to indicate a newline. Linux and UNIX on the other hand use only the line feed to denote the end of a line. This often causes issues when transferring (or even copy and pasting) a file from Windows to Linux. It is hard to spot, and often leaves people scratching their head and wondering why their configuration file is not working.

  • When you need the numbers just right – benchmark and profiling applications in the Snap Store | Ubuntu

    The world of software is a vast and complex one, often too difficult to easily assess by human intuition alone. Which is why detailed and accurate measurements of software behavior are essential in helping us understand and gauge how well our applications perform. The Snap Store has a fair share of productivity tools and utilities, including a wide range of benchmarking and profiling tools. These are designed to help developers, system administrators and hardcore enthusiasts get a precise sense of their software, whether as part of research and design or for troubleshooting ongoing problems in production environments. Let’s have a little tour.

  • Ubuntu Fridge | Ubuntu Technical Board Call For Nominations

    The Ubuntu Technical Board is responsible for the technical direction of Ubuntu. It makes decisions on package selection, packaging policy, installation systems and processes, kernel, X server, display management, library versions, and dependencies. The board works with relevant teams to establish a consensus on the right path to take, especially where diverse elements of Ubuntu cannot find consensus on shared components. The current Technical Board is expiring at the end of the year, and the Community Council would like to confirm a new Technical Board, consisting of five people, who will serve for two years.
