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.

Open source has never been more important or, ironically, irrelevant. As developers increasingly embrace the cloud to shorten time to market, they're speeding past open source, making it even harder to build an open source business. After all, if open source were largely a way for developers to skirt legal and purchasing departments to get the software they needed when they needed it, the cloud ups that convenience to the nth degree. In Accel's annual business review, the vaunted venture capital firm writes: "'Product' is no longer just the bits of software, it's also how the software is sold, supported, and made successful." The cloud is changing the way all software is consumed, including open source. Read more

Why the operating system matters even more in 2017

Operating systems don't quite date back to the beginning of computing, but they go back far enough. Mainframe customers wrote the first ones in the late 1950s, with operating systems that we'd more clearly recognize as such today—including OS/360 from IBM and Unix from Bell Labs—following over the next couple of decades.
