LinMin, provider of IT automation software LinMin Bare Metal Provisioning™, today unveiled its Server Provisioning Virtual Appliance, aimed at accelerating the automated deployment of systems running Linux, Windows Server, VMware ESXi and other hypervisors in fast-growing or frequently-repurposed data centers.

Simply import the Virtual Appliance, apply operating system and/or hypervisor ISO files, and the Virtual Appliance's templates will guide you in remotely installing Windows Server, Linux, ESXi and hypervisors on servers, blades and Virtual Machines. Using a different technology, the Server Provisioning Virtual Appliance can also can also capture, restore and clone entire systems.

When remotely provisioning Windows and Linux, software agents or even entire application stacks such as Hadoop can also be installed and configured, facilitating the deployment of servers in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) data centers targeting high-growth areas including Big Data.

The Server Provisioning Virtual Appliance's Application Programming Interface (API) enables rapid integration with other IT Automation solutions, such as orchestrators, service catalogs, self-service portals and control panels, and for IT Automation solution providers, OEM-branded versions of the Server Appliance are available.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.

Red Hat Hires a Blind Software Engineer to Improve Accessibility on Linux Desktop

Accessibility on a Linux desktop is not one of the strongest points to highlight. However, GNOME, one of the best desktop environments, has managed to do better comparatively (I think).
