  • Red Hat Satellite 6.9.6 has been released

    We are pleased to announce that Red Hat Satellite 6.9.6 is generally available as of September 22, 2021.

    Red Hat Satellite is part of the Red Hat Smart Management subscription that makes it easier for enterprises to manage patching, provisioning, and subscription management of Red Hat Enterprise Linux infrastructure.

  • Red Hat Shares ― DevSecOps

    All organizations are susceptible to information security threats―from cybercrime, which was predicted to cost the world US$6 trillion in 2021, to human error, which accounts for 95% of cybersecurity breaches.

    No matter the type of threat, your organization needs to protect itself by maintaining security controls across its stack. That’s where DevSecOps comes in. Security shouldn’t be an afterthought. DevSecOps means thinking about application and infrastructure security from the start, building it into every phase of the life cycle and stack―especially now that workloads are spread across environments.

    The good news: 74% of organizations that responded to our 2021 "Kubernetes adoption, security, and market trends" survey have a DevSecOps initiative in place, and 25% have an advanced initiative, integrating and automating security throughout the life cycle.

  • Should I migrate my application to the cloud? Here's how to decide

    There comes a time in the life of an application when someone asks: "Should we move this to the cloud?" Public and private clouds often breathe life into existing applications with more flexibility, simpler maintenance, and better performance. However, these lift and shift migrations come with tradeoffs.

    Should the application be migrated? If so, should you take the opportunity to make changes to the application along the way? How do you make a plan and stick to it? This post answers those questions and more.

  • Poettering: Authenticated Boot and Disk Encryption on Linux

    Here's a lengthy missive from Lennart Poettering taking Linux distributors to task for inadequately protecting systems from physical attacks.


  • AI applications optimizing actions based on data and predictions with Palantir for IBM Cloud Pak for Data

    Palantir for IBM Cloud Pak for Data enables building no-/low-code line of business applications using data, machine learning, and optimization from IBM Cloud Pak for Data. Ontology managers can define business-oriented data models integrating data from IBM Cloud Pak for Data. Application builders can use Palantir tools to create applications using these data models. Additionally, applications can integrate machine learning models from IBM Cloud Pak for Data to infuse predictions, as well as decision optimization result data from IBM Cloud Pak for Data to determine optimized actions based on data and predictions.

    This blog post explains how to create AI-infused apps using Palantir ontology and application building tools together with IBM Cloud Pak for Data model deployments and data and AI catalog. It also outlines the underlying integration architecture.

Another awful IBM story

Android Leftovers

Review: Auxtral 3

At the beginning of this review I mentioned Auxtral reminded me of Linux Mint Debian Edition. The theme, the Cinnamon desktop, and general look of the project certainly held that first impression. However, the default applications and tools (apart from the Cinnamon desktop and command line utilities) felt quite a bit different. Linux Mint has been around for several years and has earned a reputation for being beginner friendly, polished, and shipping with a lot of top-notch open source applications. Auxtral appears to have a similar approach - similar base distribution, the same desktop environments, and a similar look. However, Auxtral does have its own personality under the surface. It ships with a quite different collection of applications, sometimes using less popular items (Brave in place of Firefox, SMPlayer instead of VLC, etc.) It has also gone its own way with software updates, preferring classic tools like APT and Synaptic over Mint's update manager. Auxtral is off to a good start. This was my first time trying the distribution and the experience was mostly positive. The operating system is easy to install, offers multiple desktop environments, and walks a pretty good line between hand holding and staying out of the way. The application menu is uncluttered while including enough programs to be useful. Some of those programs are a bit more obscure or less beginner friendly than what you might find in Linux Mint, but otherwise it's a good collection. Virtually everything worked and worked smoothly. I was unpleasantly surprised by this distribution's memory usage, most projects consume about half as much RAM, but otherwise I liked what Auxtral had to offer. I might not recommended it to complete beginners, especially since the project does not appear to have any documentation or support options of its own, but for someone who doesn't mind a little command line work or who likes the idea of an easy to setup distribution that combines Debian with the Cinnamon (or Xfce desktop) this seems like a good option.
