MozJPEG 3.0

Filed under
Moz/FF
OSS
Web

Mozilla has done a study of image formats and concluded that WebP and JPEG XR are not a big-enough improvement over well-optimized JPEG. In the study only HEVC (H.265) was significantly better, but it’s a patent-encumbered format, so it can’t be used freely (shhhh!)

It seems that Mozilla has a short-term and a long-term plan for image compression. They’re sponsoring development of the Daala codec, which is technically very interesting, but not production-ready yet.

Why Docker, Containers and systemd Drive a Wedge Through the Concept of Linux Distributions

Filed under
Server
Web

The announcement of Rocket by CoreOS was perceived by many to be a direct challenge to Docker, particularly as it came on the eve of DockerCon Europe and threatened to overshadow news coming out at the event. Docker, Inc. CEO Ben Golub was quick to fire back with his ‘initial thoughts on the Rocket announcement’.

"The reality is that OpenStack is not a product. It is a set of open source tools that rely on many other open source tools to populate function. There is no one thing that you can download and say you have OpenStack up and running," said Jesse Proudman, founder and CTO of Blue Box, and one of the seven panel participants at the summit.

OpenStack is an open source, private cloud alternative to Amazon Web Services and other public cloud platforms. The software controls compute, storage and networking resources throughout a data center. It is managed through a dashboard, command line or via the OpenStack API.
