  • Open Container Initiative reaches ‘great milestone,’ says Red Hat chief technologist

    After two years of work, the Open Container Initiative launched Version 1.0 for container runtime and image specifications in July. OCI’s foundation, formed by a number of container industry leaders, was tasked with the mission to create specifications that would support container portability across different operating systems and platforms. Red Hat Inc.’s chief technologist likes the specifications that he’s seen so far.

    “We had some initial code associated with those specifications as part of the OCI project and expectations that we’d get further adoptions from other parts of the ecosystem, and we’re seeing the evidence of that happening today,” said Chris Wright (pictured), vice president and chief technologist, Office of Technology, at Red Hat. “It’s a great milestone.”

  • University gets Nutanix for self-serve cloud to replace Red Hat

    The Nutanix cluster – which cost between £300,000 and £400,000 – replaces an existing infrastructure made up of numerous storage arrays and based around a Red Hat-supplied GlusterFS file system (covered by ComputerWeekly in 2013) that had become cumbersome and difficult to manage.

  • My experience with Flock 2017

    After attending Flock 2016, I got another chance to be part of Flock conference. This year, it took place in beautiful city Hyannis, Massachusetts, USA from 29th August to 1st September. Schedule of this 4 day conference was designed differently compared to last year. Both workshops and talks were running in parallel for the first three 3 days followed by a wrap-up session on last day.

  • Flock 2017

    wo weeks ago I got to travel to Cape Cod (or as I came to call it, Cape Code), Massachusetts, USA for Flock, the annual Fedora contributor conference. I arrived on Monday, August 28 after flying in from Denver, CO where I had been eclipse-viewing (well that happened in Wyoming) and summitting 6[0-5] fourteeners[6].

    Tuesday began with a keynote from Matthew Miller, where he presented metrics on the various versions of Fedora in the wild, and talked about where Fedora is heading. After that we had a long session where the presenters each got to give a short pitch for their talks. After that was lunch, and one thing I enjoyed about the schedule this year was the choice to make lunch be two hours each day. That gave us plenty of time for "hallway" type discussions throughout the week. After lunch I went to see Mike Bonet present about Factory 2.0 and the various items that team has been working on in Fedora. Several of their objectives have been related to Bodhi so this was a good session for me to attend. After that I held my "Bodhi hack sesh" session which I thought went pretty well. I think we had about 12 people attend, and I was able to help people get started on a variety of patches for Bodhi. Lastly I attended the dinner and game night, which was a lot of fun.

  • The Role of Culture in Defining DevOps

    A big part of adopting DevOps involves changing an organization’s culture. At Open Source Summit in Los Angeles, Matt Micene will host a birds of a feather session discussing how and why culture change occurs and why collaboration is the cornerstone of successfully implementing new practices.

    Micene, a Senior Evangelist at Red Hat, has more than 15 years of experience in information technology, ranging from architecture and system design to data center design. He has a deep understanding of key technologies, such as containers, cloud computing, and virtualization. In this interview, Micene describes some of the challenges of DevOps adoption and the need for culture change.

  • Ansible DevOps program gets upgraded

    When Red Hat bought the DevOps program Ansible, the company did so because it thought Ansible's automation capabilities, together with Red Hat's cloud and managing portfolio, would make a powerful one-two punch. It was right. Now, with several new Ansible innovations, the pair is helping enterprise customers harness the power of automation organization-wide -- from IT operations to development to network administration.

  • Red Hat Extends Ansible Automation Framework to Networking

    At the AnsibleFest 2017 conference, Red Hat for the first time is adding the ability to automate network management to its open source IT automation framework in addition to updating Ansible Tower, the version of the Ansible Engine framework that is designed to allow IT organizations to automate IT functions at enterprise scale.

    Justin Nemmers, general manager of Ansible, says that Ansible Engine, also known as Ansible Core, can now be employed to automate the management of Arista, Cisco and Juniper networking software as well as instances of Open vSwitch and VyOS.

    “This is the first time we’re moving into network automation,” says Nemmers.

    That’s critical, says Nemmers, because many IT organizations are finding themselves trying to manage islands of server, storage and networking automation. Ansible is now providing an opportunity to unify the management of IT infrastructure.

  • Red Hat speed fiends celebrate automation

    While tech luminaries fret about the world-killing potential of self-directed computers amid galas and globetrotting, the industry's worker bees see automation as salvation from soul-killing drudgery.

    So it was at AnsibleFest in San Francisco on Thursday, which proved to be more sysadmin speed evangelism than freewheeling festival – the substructure of the Marriott Marquis hotel, while spacious, fell short of a rave.

    Ansible refers to an instantaneous communications device imagined by author Ursula Le Guin and to, among other things, open source IT automation software acquired by Red Hat in 2015.

    Both companies aim to create a framework for security and privacy compliance automation in the mobile app life cycle as part of the Mobile Application Security project managed by DHS’ science and technology directorate, Red Hat said Wednesday.

    “Mobile devices — including smartphones and tablets — are used across government agencies, but these devices and the mobile apps that run on them require a unique approach to security,” said Paul Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Red Hat’s public sector business.

  • That thing that makes KubeVirt a little different - or the Kubernetes virtualization API.

    And to close the loop: The API is pretty independent of the runtime, and this tells me that in the end it is not that important how the VMs are run - with a runtime in a pod or via a CRI based runtime. The important bit is, that with KubeVirt the user is given the full controll over his VMs.

    Side note - Instead of a dedicated API, there is also the option to extend the pod specification using annotations to cover the virtualization specific properties. The issue is, that this does not scale, and will bloat the pod specification.

    Thus, the next time you are encountering this topic, you might want to think of KubeVirt as the Kubernetes virtualization API.

  • Outreachy 2017: Mentors and ideas needed

    The Fedora Project is participating in the upcoming round of Outreachy as a mentoring organization and is looking for project ideas and mentors. Outreachy provides three-month internships for people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech. Interns could be university students, technical school graduates, people switching careers, or people coming back to tech after starting a family or another long absence. Interns work remotely with mentors on projects ranging from programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science.

  • Fedora 26 to Get Bluetooth Support for Raspberry Pi SBCs with Linux Kernel 4.13

    Principal IoT architect at Red Hat Peter Robinson recently revealed some of the highlights that the Fedora 26 Linux operating system brought for Raspberry Pi single-board computers (SBCs).

    The developer works on Raspberry Pi support for Fedora Linux in his spare time, and, for the Fedora 26 cycle, he managed to add a bunch of goodies that would most certainly please all those who want to run Fedora on their tiny Raspberry Pi SBCs. In fact, support for Raspberry Pi landed since last year's Fedora 25 release.

  • Kernels need updates, no really

    Google has been announcing new details about its next Android release, Oreo. One of the items that came out is a new requirement for a minimum kernel version. SoC manufacturers must now use a kernel that is greater than 4.4, one of the long term stable (LTS) kernels maintained by Greg Kroah-Hartman. Android has long prided itself on differentiation and given device makers a lot of latitude. This has not infrequently led to fragmentation and difficulties with device upgrades. Google has started to work towards fixing this with efforts like project treble.

    During the LibreOffice Conference 2017 event that took place in Rome, Italy, from October 10 to October 13, there were talks about the status the Qt 5 port of LibreOffice's VCL plugin for KDE Plasma. Every year, The Document Foundation plans and organizes a LibreOffice Conference event where developers, contributors, sponsors, users, and other members of the LibreOffice community can gather to talk about the future of the Open Souce office suite. And this year they planned the new features of the next major release of the cross-platform office suite, LibreOffice 6.0, which will arrive in late January 2018 with a new look for the KDE Plasma desktop environment, work that will be sponsored by the LiMux project.
  • KDE still makes Qt

  • Krita 3.3.1 Best Alternative To Photoshop for Ubuntu/Linux Mint
    Krita is a KDE program for sketching and painting, although it has image processing capabilities, offering an end–to–end solution for creating digital painting files from scratch by masters. Fields of painting that Krita explicitly supports are concept art, creation of comics and textures for rendering. Modelled on existing real-world painting materials and workflows, Krita supports creative working by getting out of the way and with a snappy response.
