Tesora organizing first conference of the Trove community to expand knowledge and promote usage of open source database as a service platform.

CAMBRIDGE, MASS., August 7, 2014 -- IT and business line managers, developers and anyone interested in learning more about how to contribute to, build and deploy the OpenStack Trove database as a service project can participate in OpenStack Trove Day, August 19, 2014 in Cambridge, Mass.

The day will feature an overview of the Trove project, practical advice on managing both relational and NoSQL databases on Trove platform and real-world discussions of Trove in use at companies including eBay and HP. The day will also touch on other data related topics in OpenStack including the use of Hadoop on OpenStack and a panel discussion of data management in Amazon, OpenStack and traditional IT environments. There will also be a talk on OpenStack from an investor’s perspective.

Trove is the open source, community-developed database as a service (DBaaS) component of the OpenStack cloud platform. DBaaS is a way for IT managers within large enterprises and cloud service providers to offer on-demand, self-service database capabilities to people within their organization. This enables IT workers and business managers to create databases on an OpenStack cloud instance without database management experience.

“After four years, OpenStack is firmly established as the leading enterprise-ready cloud platform and there is now a clear need and desire in the market for offering database as a service on private clouds,” said Ken Rugg, CEO and founder of Tesora. “We’re thrilled to be hosting the very first OpenStack Trove Day as a forum for the community to come together to learn and discuss what is real now and what is possible for DBaaS on OpenStack.”

About Trove and the Tesora Platform
Trove is the database as a service component of OpenStack. It lets administrators and DevOps operate many instances of a variety of different database management systems (DBMS) technologies using common infrastructure in an economical way, where common administrative tasks including provisioning, deployment, configuration, tuning, monitoring and administration are achieved in a simple unified way. The Tesora DBaaS Platform uses OpenStack Trove as the core platform. The Tesora application is presented with an uncomplicated interface that encapsulates the complexities of operating and scaling the underlying infrastructure based on the applications’ needs.

Your Old Computer Can Live Again with Emmabuntüs 2

Emmabuntüs 2 1.09, a distribution created for reconditioning old computers and relying on the robustness of Xubuntu 12.04.5 LTS, has been released and is now ready for download. The Emmabuntüs developers only use LTS editions of Xubuntu, and that means they actually have two distros out right now that are maintained and improved. We had Emmabuntüs 3 1.0 released a few weeks ago, but that one was using Xubuntu 14.04 LTS as the base. Now, the old branch based on Xubuntu 12.04, Emmabuntüs 2, has been improved as well and the devs have made quite a few changes. Read more

11 years developing Krita

Back in 2003 Krita had never been released and the application was only able to do some very crude painting. I think the main reason that I started contributing to Krita back then was that I was much more comfortable with the single window UI and the fact that it used Qt/KDE and C++. In the early days I would never have imagined that I would be still with the project after 10+ years and how big the project is now. Even that the project exists today is a miracle and result of many developers putting in effort without ever knowing how it would develop. For the first few years we had almost no users and the users that we had were die-hard KDE users. At the time that wasn’t a bad thing as it allowed us to do some radical changes and experiments. Many features that were developed during this time still provide the base for the current Krita. Read more
