With Snappy Ubuntu being out there for atomic upgrades in the cloud and on servers, Fedora 22 is looking to have RPM-OSTree for providing atomic upgrades and server-side composes.
One of the latest features being proposed for implementing in Fedora 22 is rpm-ostree, which allows composing RPMs on a server in an OSTree repository to provide image-like upgrades with package-like flexibility. The rpm-ostree software was started by Project Atomic, an initiative around deploying and managing Docker containers.
In upgrading to the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Broadwell ultrabook, I'm debating whether to switch back to Fedora after having used Ubuntu for a number of years on my main production system after some falling out with a few less then stellar Fedora Core releases back in the day (of course, on test systems, there's plenty of Fedora around here but this is just about deciding on my next main OS for business tasks). In waiting for the new Broadwell ultrabook, I've been running some fresh Ubuntu and Fedora Linux tests on some other laptops/ultrabooks in the office.
The upcoming OpenShift 3 release will integrate Docker and Google Kubernetes as the basis for Red Hat's cloud platform as a service.
Red Hat is developing a new milestone release of its OpenShift platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technology that will shift the platform to Docker containers and Kubernetes orchestration.
Red Hat achieved its latest successful FIPS 140 validation back in April 2013. Since then, a lot has happened. There have been well publicized attacks on cryptographic protocols, weaknesses in implementations, and changing government requirements. With all of these issues in play, we want to explain what we are doing about it.
The Fedora ARM Team is pleased to announce the release of Fedora 21 for AArch64, ready to run on your next generation servers. Fedora 21 is a game-changer for the Fedora Project, and we think you’re going to be very pleased with the results. The Fedora 21 AArch64 release includes a bootable DVD, net installation media, and an installation tree.
Right now Fedora allows for SSH log-ins as root, which is the default behavior as currently shipped by sshd. However, for Fedora 22 there is a proposal that the packaged sshd will default the option of PermitRootLogin to no so that root log-ins wouldn't be permitted into Fedora SSH servers. This change is being proposed to try to avoid brute-force attacks against root passwords of Fedora servers.
When Fedora 21 finally hit release last month, I was excited and ready to go. By the end of the day, I had every desktop machine I own up and running on the new version, and I was enjoying playing with the latest version of some of my favorite open source software which was packaged inside. But what next?
The desktop edition of Fedora 21 was just one of three “flavors” of Fedora. What do the other two hold, and what do they mean for Fedora outside of the workstation?
Big Switch Networks Inc. capped off a big year in the software-defined networking (SDN) industry by announcing its flagship networking fabric was awarded certification for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5, laying the groundwork for OpenStack cloud computing implementations.
Big Switch is a leader in the "bare-metal" SDN arena, targeting its Big Cloud Fabric for building out new datacenter pods with low-cost networking devices controlled by open source software in a disaggregated approach that moves network "intelligence" from expensive, proprietary equipment to the software management layer.
