  • 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.

  • DHS S&T awards $8.6 Million for five mobile application security R&D projects

    Red Hat, Inc., of Raleigh, North Carolina and Kryptowire, LLC of Fairfax, Virginia jointly were awarded $1,902,750 to integrate security throughout the entire mobile app development lifecycle.

  • Red Hat-Kryptowire Team to Support DHS’ Mobile App Security Project; Paul Smith Comments

    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.

  • New story: Savaged by Systemd

  • 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.

[Test-Announce] Fedora 27 Beta Freeze

Filed under
Red Hat

Today is an important day on the Fedora 27 schedule[1], with two significant cut-offs. Today is the Beta freeze[2]. This means that only packages which fix accepted blocker or freeze exception bugs[3][4] will be marked as 'stable' and included in the Beta composes. Other builds will remain in updates-testing until the Beta release is approved, at which point the Beta freeze is lifted and packages can move to 'stable' as usual until the Final freeze.

  • Temps – A Smart Beautiful Weather App for GNU/Linux
    I’ve written on a couple of weather applications before, including Cumulus and Simple Weather Indicator and today I bring you yet another free and beautiful Linux app with thanks to the open source community. It’s reminiscent of Cumulus weather application and it goes by the name of Temps. Temps is a beautiful cross-platform weather application that lives in the menu bar of any desktop. Being true to the open source spirit, it uses code from several open source projects like Menubar, OpenWeatherMap, Electron, and Chart.js, to mention a few.
