Ubuntu 11.10 Is DevOps Distilled

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu 11.10 is now available for free public download. Word on the street is that this iteration of the open source operating system will feature "management and orchestration tools" that DevOps practitioners need to embrace cloud computing. Ubuntu 11.10 introduces Juju (previously codenamed Ensemble) for service deployment and orchestration across multiple cloud infrastructures, large-scale bare-metal deployments, and workstation-based service prototyping.

This is the final release prior to Ubuntu's next Long Term Support (LTS) release, due in April next year. Commercial Ubuntu services supporter Canonical explains that Juju enables infrastructure and service developers to describe the deployment and scaling requirements of their applications to enhance the dialog between developers and ops teams. "Juju can be referred to as DevOps Distilled because it brings such clarity to the development-deployment dialog and process," says the company.

Security-Minded Qubes OS Will Satisfy Your Yen for Xen

Qubes succeeds in seamless integrating security by isolation into the user experience. However, comparing Qubes to a typical Linux distro is akin to comparing the Linux OS to Unix. Read more

Sad News! ;-)

So, XP is dead, “7” is dying, “8” is a zombie, and “10” is vapourware with nowhere to call home. M$ continues layoffs. POOF! It all falls down. In the meantime Google and the OEMs will crank out many millions of ChromeBooks. Canonical, Linpus, RedHat, Suse… and the OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux PCs. Several OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux thin clients. Android/Linux will reverberate with another billion or so units of small cheap computers(tablets, smartphones). This looks like good news to me. Read more

Android creator Andy Rubin is leaving Google

The move is, perhaps, not a total surprise. Last March, Rubin left the Android group and was replaced by Sundar Pichai. His latest project, as detailed in a lengthy New York Times report in December, was creating robots for a project outside of the company's Google X lab, something that dovetailed with Google's shopping spree of robotics companies. In 2012, there were also rumors abound that Rubin planned to leave for a stealth-mode startup called CloudCar, though they were vehemently denied. Read more
