Red Hat Developers Introduce New Tool For Linux Storage Management

Filed under

Red Hat

The lid has been lifted on blivet-gui, a new open-source storage tool designed by Red Hat for configuring disks and file-systems.

Red Hat decided to develop a new GUI-driven utility for storage management on Fedora/RHEL as GParted, one of the popular programs for disk management on Linux, doesn't support all of the technologies found in modern Linux distributions. The utility is named blivet-gui as it uses the Blivet Python library used for storage configuration. Red Hat's Anaconda installer is already using Blivet for its storage configuration during installation so this new tool should integrate well with their stack.

OpenStack 101: Getting started with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform

Filed under
Red Hat

Cloud computing is enjoying a growing presence in businesses today, and according to forecasts from experts such as Gartner, uptake is only set to rise in the future.

As organizations that haven't already latched onto the trend look to do so, investing in the right infrastructure, technology and tools is essential. OpenStack, as a community project, is not yet ready for the enterprise 'as-is'. However, like other popular open source community projects including Linux, there are companies, including Red Hat, that are making the community project into an enterprise Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering, enabling organizations to attain greater agility and scalability with the cloud, with the support lifecycle, vast partner ecosystem, and certified solutions portfolio that enterprise customers require.

Webconverger 26 Is a Secure Kiosk OS That Doesn't Store Any Data

Webconverger is a distribution designed and developed with a single goal in mind, namely to provide the best Kiosk experience possible. This means that people will be able to use that OS as a regular system, although its functionality will be limited and it will be impossible to install any other apps. This is a very helpful solution if this is a public PC, like in a library or a cafe, and it preserves the quality of the installation for a very long time. Because users can't interact with it on a deeper level, the operating system will remain stable and it will be pretty much the same like in the first day that it was used. Read more

5 more killer features Windows 9 should steal from Linux

If the latest Windows 9 leaks are any indication, some of the operating system's coolest new features will look a lot like what Linux users already enjoy: Like the virtual desktops Linux users have had since the 90’s, and a centralized notification center like the one available in GNOME Shell.

Who would have imagined? Windowed applications are a big new feature in Windows. Read more
