  • Meizu MX5 Pro Ubuntu edition hands on

    Majority of the phones at Mobile World Congress 2016 used Android and a few had Windows mobile 10. But if you want to be really different, Ubuntu was showing its highest end Meizu MX5 Pro Ubuntu phone.

    The phone physically looks just like the Meizu MX5 Pro which was powered with FlyMe – Android-based operating system. Once you turn it on, you see a clear difference. It took us only seconds to find apps, launch a browser and open up Fudzilla.com.

  • New Music App to Bring Spotify Streaming Support to Ubuntu Phones and Tablets

    David Planella, the Ubuntu Community Team Manager, published recently a summary report of the work done by the Ubuntu community during the last two weeks.

  • Canonical Could Ease NFV Adoption with New Lab

    As this year began, we spotted a lot of action from telecom players and the open source community surrounding Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technology. For example, Red Hat and NEC Corporation said that they formed a partnership to develop NFV features in the OpenStack cloud computing platform, with the goal of delivering carrier-grade solutions based on Red Hat's OpenStack build.

    Now, Canonical is starting a new interoperability lab to allow telecom players to validate the capabilities of virtual network function appliances ahead of deployments in production environments. The lab could help streamline the adoption of virtual network function tech in the telecom industry.

  • MWC: Is there room for Ubuntu OS?

    It's really a two horse race on the mobile front, as Android and iOS duke it out in most markets around the world.

    It's such a duopoly that Windows Phone and BlackBerry's marketshares are measured in single digits in many regions.

    Still, that hasn't stopped more entrants from joining the fray, such as Canonical's Ubuntu OS.

  • A talk about the future of Ubuntu with Mark Shuttleworth

    Hello all,

    this week I joined the Mobile World Congress thanks to Canonical support which invited me. The week itself it has been awesome, but the most awesome thing happened today: thanks to Chimera Revo’s support (a big hug goes to Simone and Luca who supported and endured me all week long) I had a talk with Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical, about Ubuntu and its future.

  • Canonical's distribution of ZFS file systems violates GNU GPL

Server: NASA, Kubernetes at GitHub, and Docker in Mainframes

  • NASA Launches Supercomputer Servers into Space
    During that time, it will run a series of supercomputing benchmarks, including High Performance Linpack, the High Performance Conjugate Gradients (HPCG) suite, and the NASA-derived NAS parallel benchmarks. Its operation will be compared to HPE servers of the same construction back on Earth. The idea is to make sure that the ISS-based system is able to deal with the realities of cosmic radiation, solar flares, unstable electrical power, and wide variations in temperature.
  • Kubernetes at GitHub
    Over the last year, GitHub has gradually evolved the infrastructure that runs the Ruby on Rails application responsible for github.com and api.github.com. We reached a big milestone recently: all web and API requests are served by containers running in Kubernetes clusters deployed on our metal cloud. Moving a critical application to Kubernetes was a fun challenge, and we’re excited to share some of what we’ve learned with you today.
  • Docker Can Now Containerize Legacy Apps Running on Mainframes
    Docker this week announced the first update to its rebranded flagship platform with the release of Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 17.06. Back in March, Docker rolled out the first Docker EE, built on the backs of what had been known as Docker Commercially Supported and Docker Datacenter. The new release comes on the heels of a report last week from Bloomberg that the container company has been raising money, which will result in $75 million dollars being added to its coffers by the end of the month, bringing with it a new valuation of $1.3 billion — up $300 million from its previous valuation.
