  • Red Hat panel: Open source is the future, but only if it can expand beyond developers

    Tim Yeaton, EVP and CMO, Red Hat
    Leigh Day, VP, Corporate Communications, Red Hat
    Nick Hopman, senior director, Emerging Technology Practices in US Sales, Red Hat
    Josh Patterson, director, Field Engineering, Skymind

    These executives discussed the open source movement and how it relates to Red Hat endeavors, producing some interesting insights worth sharing.

    Nick Hopman stated the technological and delivery model for open source technology is an "overnight success that started in the eighties." The concept has roots in the university system where open source licenses promoted sharing. "Over the last ten years we've seen a metamorphosis. Every major technology that enterprises are likely to bet on - cloud, artificial intelligence, mobility - has a lot of its current innovation happening upstream in the open source community," he stated. "The small university-centric collaboration model is now a fountain of innovation."

  • ‘Slow-burn’ growth model proves a successful strategy for Red Hat, analyst says

  • Red Hat’s Women in Open Source Award Winners, 2017

  • Java modularity specification opposed by Red Hat, IBM is voted down

    A Java modularity specification failed to pass in a vote by Java executive committee members, leaving the future of the technology in question. The issue could hold up the planned July 27 release of Java 9, which is slated to include modularity.

    Balloting on Java Specification Request 376 was completed on Monday. The modular plan for Java, intended to make it easier to scale the platform, has been opposed by companies, including Red Hat and IBM. Red Hat, in particular, questioned many parts of the plan, including raising issues about potential application compatibility problems.

  • Java 9 faces another delay, Oracle fires back at IBM and Red Hat

    Oracle’s chief Java architect has criticised Red Hat and IBM for the companies opposition to make Java 9 modular.

    The Java Platform Module System (JPMS) a core component of Project Jigsaw, the most likely candidate for modularity in Java 9, has received opposition from both IBM and Red Hat.

    IBM have hinted that they may vote against the changes whilst Red Hat initially agreed to the coming changes. Since then Oracle Chief Java Architect Mike Reinhold has come out and said that Red Hat worked consistently to undermine any coming changes.

  • The future of middleware lies in orchestrating the architecture, says Red Hat

    Enterprise adoption of containers and microservices continues to grow, driven by increased developer efficiency and support microservices. This type of architecture, however, does not come without challenges. And this week during Red Hat Summit in Boston, Massachusetts, Red Hat Inc. announced OpenShift Application Runtimes to mitigate those obstacles and accelerate a cloud-native environment.

    “One of the things that has continued to be an actual challenge, at least a perceived challenge in the minds of would-be microservices architects, is: ‘How do I manage all the stuff?’” said Mich Piech (pictured, right), vice president and general manager of middleware at Red Hat.

  • Can Red Hat juju sell more OpenStack than OpenStack can?

    OpenStack got some play at last week’s 2017 Red Hat Summit, with keynote speakers giving the open-source infrastructure project nods. But there remains some mystery as to how much OpenStack customers are consuming from Red Hat Inc.’s offerings.

    “OpenStack manages resources — whether its compute, network, storage resources,” said Jim Whitehurst (pictured), president and chief executive officer of Red Hat.

  • ​Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11 released

    How serious is Red Hat about OpenStack? Serious enough that when it announced Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11, the latest version of of its massively scalable and agile Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud, at OpenStack Summit, it based it on February's OpenStack "Ocata" release.

    The Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform furthers its partnership with Amazon Web Services with a new integration that makes it easier for developers to build and deploy apps in containers.

  • Red Hat rolls out the announcements at its annual summit

    Last week open source company Red Hat held its annual summit. I didn't actually attended the event, but I took the opportunity to follow along virtually. Many of my analyst friends were there, and between their missives, some back-channel conversations and interaction with their AR/PR team, I got a pretty good handle on what was up.

    This comes at an interesting time for Red Hat. Its original business, Red Hat Linux in all its flavors, is going well, but newer open-source initiatives (OpenStack, OpenShift, Docker, etc.) have muddied the waters and created a requirement for Red Hat to embrace different areas.

    Historically, I’ve found Red Hat a difficult organization to engage with. They seem to get a little prickly about criticism (whether constructive or not), and defensiveness seems to be something of a core operating model for them. That said, having a view of the event from a distance gives me a chance to tell it like I see it.

Fedora Linux getting native MP3 support, but who really cares?

Filed under
Red Hat

Fedora is a wonderful Linux distribution, as it is both stable and modern. One of the biggest selling points of the operating system is that is relies on truly free open source software. This means it won't have patented or closed-source non-free packages by default. Of course, in-the-know Fedora users often added these needed packages after the fact by using third-party repositories, such as RPM Fusion.

  • Red Hat Is The Gatekeeper For ARM In The Datacenter

    If any new hardware technology is going to get traction in the datacenter, it has to have the software behind it. And as the dominant supplier of commercial Linux, Red Hat’s support of ARM-based servers gives the upstart chip makers like Applied Micro, Cavium, and Qualcomm the leverage to help pry the glasshouse doors open and get a slice of the server and storage business that is so utterly dominated by Intel’s Xeon processors today.

Open source-based business lessons from a seasoned CEO

The default now is to build from open and in the open. So that's a positive. The downside is that by open source being the default, we may be getting a little lazy. If you remember back 5-10 years, open sourcing was a big deal, and it forced a level of rigor that may have led, in some cases, to founders and early investors taking better approaches to building their company—for example, shifting towards SaaS wherever possible, in part because of the ability to demonstrate clear value versus their own open source.

Keeping up with advances in open source database administration

The world of open source databases is rapidly evolving. It seems like every day brings a new release of an open source technology that might make a database administrator's life easier, if only he or she knew about it. Fortunately, there are many ways to stay on top of what's going on with open source database technology. One such way is the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference, taking place next week in Dublin, Ireland. We've covered Percona Live before, and invite you to take a look back at some of our previous stories. From IoT to big data to working with the cloud, there's plenty to keep up with. Here are a look at a couple of the sessions you might enjoy, as described by the speakers. Read more

TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro 13 Review: a Powerful Ultrabook Running TUXEDO Xubuntu

There is no doubt that the TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro 13 is not a powerful ultrabook, providing good value for the money. And having it shipped with a Linux OS pre-installed makes your Linux journey a breeze if you're just getting started with exploring the wonderful world of Open Source software and GNU/Linux technologies. There are a few issues that caught our attention during our testing, and you should be aware of them before buying this laptop. For example, the LCD screen leaks light, which is most visible on a dark background and when watching movies. Also, the display is only be tilted back to about 120 degrees, which might be inconvenient for the owner. The laptop doesn't heat up that much, and we find the backlit keyboard with the Tux logo on the Super key a plus when buying a TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro 13. Of course, if you don't need all this power, you can always buy any other laptop out there and install your favorite Linux OS on it, but it's not guaranteed that everything will work out of the box like on TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro 13.
