  • Simplifying deployments of accelerated AI workloads on Red Hat OpenShift with NVIDIA GPU Operator

    The new GPU operator enables OpenShift to schedule workloads that require use of GPGPUs as easily as one would schedule CPU or memory for more traditional not accelerated workloads. Start by creating a container that has a GPU workload inside it and request the GPU resource when creating the pod and OpenShift will take care of the rest. This makes deployment of GPU workloads to OpenShift clusters straightforward for users and administrators as it is all managed at the cluster level and not on the host machines. The GPU operator for OpenShift will help to simplify and accelerate the compute-intensive ML/DL modeling tasks for data scientists, as well as help running inferencing tasks across data centers, public clouds, and at the edge. Typical workloads that can benefit from GPU acceleration include image and speech recognition, visual search and several others.

  • OpenShift Commons Briefing: JupyterHub on-demand (and other tools) with Red Hat’s Guillaume Moutier and Landon LaSmith

    Welcome to the first briefing of the “All Things Data” series of OpenShift Commons briefings. We’ll be holding future briefings on Tuesdays at 8:00am PST, so reach out with any topics you’re interested in and remember to bookmark the OpenShift Commons Briefing calendar!

    In this first briefing for the “All Things Data” OpenShift Commons series, Red Hat’s Guillaume Moutier and Landon LaSmith demo’d how to easily integrate Open Data Hub and OpenShift Container Storage to build your own data science platform. When working on data science projects, it’s a guarantee that you will need different kinds of storage for your data: block, file, object.

    Open Data Hub (ODH) is an open source project that provides open source AI tools for running large and distributed AI workloads on OpenShift Container Platform.

    OpenShift Container Storage (OCS) is software-defined storage for containers that provides you with every type of storage you need, from a simple, single source.

  • Awards roll call: November 2019 to February 2020

    Just a few months into 2020 and we are already celebrating our successes over here at Red Hat! In fact, we are pleased to announce that we have been honored with 31 new award wins and honorable mentions. Our latest award roll call includes recognition in categories ranging from Red Hat’s unique workplace culture, our talented individuals who make Red Hat so special, our incredibly talented design and creative teams and the depth and experience of our business portfolio.

  • Ansible DevOps comes to the mainframe

    I cut my teeth on mainframe computers. My first system administration language wasn't -- as you might guess from my Unix/Linux background -- Borrne or C shell, but rather, IBM 360 mainframe Job Control Language (JCL). So, the notion that a DevOps system, such as Red Hat Ansible, could ever control a mainframe is a little mind-blowing. Sure, IBM mainframes have been using Linux for 20 years now, but DevOps on a mainframe? Really?

System76 Thelio Major Proves To Be A Major Player For Linux Workstations

For the past two months we have been testing the System76 Thelio Major and it's been working out extremely well with performance and reliability. The Thelio Major offering with options for Intel Core X-Series or AMD Ryzen Threadripper and resides between their standard Thelio desktop with Ryzen/Core CPUs and the Thelio Massive that sports dual Intel Xeon CPUs. The Thelio Major is the platform we have been using for all of our AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X testing and it's been working out great. The Thelio Major besides having Threadripper and Core X-Series CPU options can be configured with up to 256GB of RAM, up to two GPUs, and up to 46TB of storage for really yielding incredibly powerful Linux workstation performance potential.

Deprecating support for the Linux kernel

Running on the Hurd was always a goal for Guix, and supporting multiple kernels is a huge maintenance burden. As such it is expected that the upcoming Guix 1.1 release will be the last version featuring the Linux-Libre kernel. Future versions of Guix System will run exclusively on the Hurd, and we expect to remove Linux-Libre entirely by Guix 2.0. The Linux kernel will still be supported when using Guix on "foreign" distributions, but it will be on a best-effort basis. We hope that other distributions will follow suit and adopt the Hurd in order to increase security and freedom for their users. Read more Also: Guix deprecating support for the Linux kernel

Essential Guide: How to Upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 (Beta) Right Now

Well, in this guide I show you the steps required to upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 from Ubuntu 18.04 or Ubuntu 19.10 right now, , nice and early, ahead of the final release. You do not need to download an .iso, fuss around with a USB thumb drive, or lose any of your files — you can upgrade directly with a half-way decent internet connection. Just keep in mind that (at the time you read this) the final stable release of the Focal Fossa is not yet available, only a beta quality candidate is. Read more

Plasma Mobile: How to help us!

We often get asked: “how long until the 1.0 release?”. Or: “how far away is Plasma Mobile 1.0?”. The usual answer to both these question is “It’ll be ready when it is ready”. But, really, how do we know that it is ready? Recently some of us prepared a check list of items which we consider necessary before we can declare Plasma Mobile “ready” or at rc1 status. Read more
