  • How do tools affect culture?

    Most of the DevOps community talks about how tools don’t matter much. The culture has to change first, the argument goes, which might modify how the tools are used.

    I agree and disagree with that concept. I believe the relationship between tools and culture is more symbiotic and bidirectional than unidirectional. I have discovered this through real-world transformations across several companies now. I admit it’s hard to determine whether the tools changed the culture or whether the culture changed how the tools were used.

  • GPU Accelerated SQL queries with PostgreSQL & PG-Strom in OpenShift-3.10

    In the OpenShift 3.9 GPU blog, we leveraged machine learning frameworks on OpenShift for image recognition. And in the How To Use GPUs with DevicePlugin in OpenShift 3.10 blog, we installed and configured an OpenShift cluster with GPU support. In this installment, we will create a more sophisticated workload on the cluster – accelerating databases using GPUs.

    One of the key parts of any machine learning algorithm is the data (often referred to as the data lake/warehouse, stored as structured, semi-structured or unstructured data).

    A major part of machine learning pipelines is the preparation, cleaning, and exploration of this data. Specifically removing NAs (missing values), transformations, normalization, subsetting, sorting, and a lot of plotting.

  • Reducing the use of non-glibc allocators in Fedora

    Memory allocation for applications is a bit of a balancing act between various factors including CPU performance, memory efficiency, and how the memory is actually being allocated and deallocated by the application. Different programs may have diverse needs, but it is often the kind of workload that the application is expected to handle that determines which memory allocator performs best. That argues for a diversity of memory allocators (and allocation strategies) but, on the other hand, that complicates things for Linux distributions. As a result, Fedora is discussing ways to rein in the spread of allocators used by its packages.

  • Copr has a brand new API

    New Copr version is here and after several months of discussions and development, it finally brings a brand new API. In this article, we are going to see why it was needed, how it is better than previous API versions (i.e. why you should be happy about it) and try some code samples.

  • Red Hat partners have played an important role in our company journey

    As Red Hat celebrates 25 years, I would be remiss not to mention the role Red Hat partners have played in our company's story. Partners have been an important multiplier for Red Hat and building our customer success. They are important to our future.


    In order to continue to scale, Red Hat needed to work with distributors and resellers. The first call I made was to Peter Larocque, from Synnex, who I'd worked with in the channel for more than 20 years. I introduced him to Red Hat's upstream open source model, which at the time probably sounded a lot like asking him to get into the business of selling "free" software. He was a little incredulous, but he said he'd give it a try. We had our first distributor partner on board. Six monthslater, we had our first global reseller. Red Hat was on the map in the channel.

    Not long after, Red Hat began generating interest in the industry and among prospective partners through acquisitions and new technologies. We had a growing base of partners, technologies and customers who realized their IT partners could work with Red Hat to: provide full solutions for their business needs (Global Systems Integrators and Independent Software Vendors); offer consumption or pay-as-you go models (Service Providers); take them to the cloud (Certified Cloudand Service Providers); and provide industry expertise beyond open source (including healthcare, financial andtelecommunications).

  • Cloudification Is Coming, but Service Providers’ Processes and Culture Must Change

    Communications service providers (CSPs) across the world are looking to claim their position at the heart of the digital society, but they first need to become more agile and lean. There are many innovations that can help in this quest: NFV, SDN, the convergence of Networks and IT, cloudification, DevOps, and more. In most cases the required technologies are now available and ready for mission-critical environments. However, the surrounding operational processes and mindset are often in need of a thorough review.

  • Autoscaling the Red Hat Cache Service on OpenShift

    Earlier this year, Red Hat announced the Red Hat Cache Service which is a distributed in-memory caching service that runs on Red Hat OpenShift. Red Hat Data Grid is used as the core of the cache service. The cache service is one of the things you can easily install on OpenShift through the OpenShift Service Catalog. You can find the cache service in the Red Hat OpenShift Online Pro tier.

  • CRI-O now running production workloads in OpenShift Online

    After hitting 1.0 in October of last year and being shipped as generally available (GA) in OpenShift 3.9, CRI-O has reached another important milestone—it’s now being used in production for many workloads running on OpenShift Online Starter accounts using OpenShift 3.10. Using CRI-O in a real-world production environment with diverse Kubernetes workloads is an important part of the development feedback loop for improving and extending CRI-O and OpenShift.

  • Containers are Linux. Products run the enterprise. So why are we swimming in a sea of Kubernetes project-based services? Part 2

    The rush to enable and adopt Kubernetes is evident with nearly weekly announcements of new Kubernetes distributions or services. The CNCF Kubernetes Conformance Program lists, as of this writing, at least 37 conformant software distributions of Kubernetes alone, plus additional hosted services.

    That’s a lot of choice. But many of these vendors and organizations are certifying and delivering just Kubernetes, or Kubernetes plus one or two components that add some extended functionality, not an overall solution or platform in which Kubernetes plays a part. Just like the Linux Foundation is the governing body for the upstream development of Linux, which is also one piece of the much larger operating system platform, so is CNCF the governing body for Kubernetes. Conformance in the upstream development stage does not imply a viable enterprise solution.

  • The time for change is now - channeling the digital transformation opportunity

    IT suppliers of all types live in a time of great opportunity. Organizations across industries have accepted that digital transformation has to be an integral part of their business and the channel must step forward and become a leader that helps companies to modernize infrastructure, exploit hybrid cloud capabilities and develop applications faster than ever before. However joint research we conducted in collaboration with CRN UK shows that channel partners in Europe still have work to do: just 22 percent of IT suppliers feel capable of providing a complete service to cater for digital transformations.

    Red Hat‘s (NYSE: RHT) enterprise-grade products will be available to government agencies and regulated industries on Amazon Web Services‘ GovCloud marketplace via a distribution agreement with DLT Solutions, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.

    DLT will offer Red Hat’s products and managed services as a “Certified Cloud Service Provider” through an agreement that builds on the companies’ strategic partnership that dates back to 2004, DLT said Wednesday.

  • Red Hat's expanding relationships with telcos

    It used to be that operators in the U.S. turned to Red Hat for their IT department needs, but for the past several years Red Hat has been increasingly involved on the network side of their businesses.

    With the emphasis on NFV and open source, Red Hat is becoming an increasingly significant player in the wireless space. “In the past few years, we’ve had interactions with every operator in the U.S.,” in some form or another, said Ian Hood, Red Hat's chief technologist and global service provider, in an interview with Fierce.

    Publicly, of course, the company is limited on which customers it can disclose. In the U.S., Verizon has openly participated in Red Hat’s OpenStack Summits and talked about its NFV deployments, for example.

Red Hat News: Summit Supercomputer, OpenShift and More

Filed under
Red Hat
  • How Red Hat Powers the #1 Summit Supercomputer

    In this video from ISC 2018, Yan Fisher from Red Hat and Buddy Bland from ORNL discuss Summit, the world’s fastest supercomputer. Red Hat teamed with IBM, Mellanox, and NVIDIA to provide users with a new level of performance for HPC and AI workloads.


    The composition of Summit should not come as a surprise, as modern supercomputers are frequently built from a collection of components that each meet specific needs, rather than using the product line of a single vendor. All of these components are commoditized, in that they can be (and often are) deployed into enterprise datacenters. Also like traditional datacenters, running on this hardware are often Linux distributions – according to the most recent (November 2017) Top500 list, the top ten fastest supercomputers in the world all run a variant of Linux.

    The total system design of Summit, consisting of 4,608 IBM compute servers, aims to make it easier to bring research applications to this behemoth. Part of this is the consistent environment provided by Red Hat Enterprise Linux, with which many leading researchers around the world are already familiar. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is also widely deployed in National Labs and research centers around the globe and is a proven platform for large-scale computing across multiple hardware architectures.

  • Promoting container images between registries with skopeo

    OpenShift admins choose different architectures for their installations, but many use two discrete clusters to physically divide development and testing workloads from production deployments.

    We recommend having some Continuous Integration (CI) process in nearly every development scenario, to orchestrate the lifecycle of applications from the initial commit all the way into production. Continuous Integration can imply many different tasks related to application development, testing, and releases. In this article, I won’t directly address whether one should do Continuous Delivery or Continuous Deployment, as that depends on the maturity and complexity of the organization and the application.

  • OKD: Renaming of OpenShift Origin with 3.10 Release

    When we released OpenShift Origin as the open source upstream project for Red Hat OpenShift back in April 2012, we had little inkling of the phenomenal trajectory of cloud-native technology that was to come. With all the work that has gone into the Kubernetes-based core platform (OpenShift 3) from the initial OpenShift Origin 1.0 Release (OpenShift 3) in June 2015, to current release of Red Hat OpenShift 3.10 release last week, we’ve seen the rise of Kubernetes and containers create the basis of the cloud-native landscape. We collaborated in the incubation and maturation of dozens of new cloud-native projects and into a myriad of upstream projects, expanding the universe of tools and platforms in a way we could only have dreamed about just three years ago.

    So it’s time for a new logo, new website and a new name for our open source project. We are changing the name of our open source project to better represent who we are today, and who we’ll be tomorrow – the Origin community distribution of Kubernetes that powers Red Hat OpenShift.

  • How open virtualization can make a difference in people's lives

    Recently a group of Red Hat product managers were discussing the uniqueness of our products. In this case Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization, and that when combined together into a ‘platform’ how they deliver unique opportunities and value for our customers which in turn allows them to further innovate in ways that can drive their businesses to a greater good.

    An example of this is recent work done by Intermountain Healthcare. Intermountain Healthcare drove investments with Red Hat in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization as well as CloudForms and Ansible. Combined, these Red Hat offerings when integrated into Intermountain’s day-to-day business processes resulted in increased service delivery levels—important in the healthcare world.

Automating backups on a Raspberry Pi NAS

In the first part of this three-part series using a Raspberry Pi for network-attached storage (NAS), we covered the fundamentals of the NAS setup, attached two 1TB hard drives (one for data and one for backups), and mounted the data drive on a remote device via the network filesystem (NFS). In part two, we will look at automating backups. Automated backups allow you to continually secure your data and recover from a hardware defect or accidental file removal. Read more

5 open source strategy and simulation games for Linux

Gaming has traditionally been one of Linux's weak points. That has changed somewhat in recent years thanks to Steam, GOG, and other efforts to bring commercial games to multiple operating systems, but those games are often not open source. Sure, the games can be played on an open source operating system, but that is not good enough for an open source purist. So, can someone who only uses free and open source software find games that are polished enough to present a solid gaming experience without compromising their open source ideals? Absolutely. While open source games are unlikely ever to rival some of the AAA commercial games developed with massive budgets, there are plenty of open source games, in many genres, that are fun to play and can be installed from the repositories of most major Linux distributions. Even if a particular game is not packaged for a particular distribution, it is usually easy to download the game from the project's website to install and play it. Read more

Software: Virtlyst 1.2.0, Blender 2.8 Plan, Dropbox Gets Worse and DaVinci Resolve 15 Targets GNU/Linux

  • Virtlyst 1.2.0 released
    Virtlyst – a Web Interface to manage virtual machines build with Cutelyst/Qt/C++ got a new release. This new release includes a bunch of bug fixes, most importantly probably being the ability to warn user before doing important actions to help avoid doing mistakes. Most commits came from new contributor René Linder who is also working on a Bootstrap 4 theme and Lukas Steiner created a dockerfile for it. This is especially cool because Virtlyst repository now has 4 authors while Cutelyst which is way older has only 6.
  • Blender 2.8 Planning Update
    At this point we will not have a feature complete Beta release ready in August as we had hoped. Instead, we invested most of our time improving the features that were already there and catching up with the bug tracker. This includes making the viewport and EEVEE work on more graphics cards and platforms. The Spring open movie team is also using Blender 2.8 in production, which is helping us ensure the new dependency graph and tools can handle complex production scenes.
  • Blender 2.80 Now Coming In Early 2019 With Many Improvements

  • Dropbox will only Support the Ext4 File System In Linux in November
    Dropbox has announced that starting on November 7th 2018, only the ext4 file system will be supported in Linux for synchronizing folders in the Dropbox desktop app. Those Linux users who have synch on other file systems such as XFS, ext2, ext3, ZFS, and many others will no longer have working Dropbox synchronization after this date. This news came out after Linux dropbox users began seeing notifications stating "Dropbox Will Stop Syncing Ext4 File Systems in November." You can see an example of this alert in Swedish below.
  • Dropbox scares users by shrinking synching options
    Dropbox has quietly announced it will soon stop synching files that reside on drives tended by some filesystems. The sync ‘n’ share service’s desktop client has recently produced warnings that the software will stop syncing in November 2018. Those warnings were sufficiently ambiguous that Dropbox took to its support forums to explain exactly what’s going on, namely that as of November 7th, 2018, “we’re ending support for Dropbox syncing to drives with certain uncommon file systems.”

How to display data in a human-friendly way on Linux

Not everyone thinks in binary or wants to mentally insert commas into large numbers to come to grips with the sizes of their files. So, it's not surprising that Linux commands have evolved over several decades to incorporate more human-friendly ways of displaying information to its users. In today’s post, we look at some of the options provided by various commands that make digesting data just a little easier. Read more
