Interviews

Even among technology companies, Red Hat has to stand out as one of the geekiest firms in the business.

The enterprise company offers services and support around the Linux open-source operating system, which non-techies can think of as a free equivalent of Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s MacOS. Developers and IT operators, however, regard Linux as more than just a free service: It’s the underpinning of some of the most popular apps and software used today.

For instance, if you’ve ordered a car ride from Uber or bought digital storage from Amazon, it’s likely Linux OS was in a corporate data center somewhere along the line, making sure the appropriate software was chugging along.

Red Hat

The Mad Hatter of Linux is getting Alice in Wonderland style physical space virtualisation with thin provisioning, compression and deduplication courtesy of Permabit.

Building on its June 2016 Linux availability announcement, Permabit and Red Hat have a go-to-market partnership based on the former's Albireo deduplication and HIOPS compression technology being added as a kernel module to Red Hat Linux. Up until now dedupe and compression have largely been storage array features, and then appearing in software-only storage running on servers and direct-attached disks, SSDs or JBODs.

Fedora: The Latest

  • Fedora 25 Final compose 1.3 is considered as GOLD and the status is GO
  • At last I meet you, OLPC XO! [Ed: Fedora-based. Microsoft and Intel conspired to kill it]

    Last Monday, I went with my wife and my 6-year-old daughter, Eimi, to an activity in a school. The idea was to let parents know about this new educational optionl and its advantages for children who are about to start their elementary school life.

    At the beginning, I was not very interested because we had already made arrangements for our daughter to go to an educational institution near home.

    The principal was talking while the parents listened and the children made an effort to stay quiet. I was growing tired, and so were the bunch of kids sitting on the chairs. The principal was highlighting how they incorporate technology in the teaching of the subjects, but I was not convinced...

  • XPS 13 Developer Edition Kaby Lake (9360): working great with Fedora 25

    The new model’s been getting great reviews, and is reported to have good battery life. I think it’s good to send a signal by buying a system with Linux preloaded (even if it’s the wrong one :>). nirik was touting the virtues of the Lenovo Yoga 910, and that sure looks nice too, but I think I’m still happy with this.

    So the new XPS 13 arrived today. It’s a very nice bit of hardware, even smaller than the second-gen thanks to those crazy tiny bezels, and with an overall nice design. Keyboard and trackpad feel a bit better than before.

    Of course, I installed the brand-new, just-signed-off Fedora 25 (Workstation) on it straight away (public release on Tuesday!), and guess what?

Introducing Fedora Hubs

Filed under
Red Hat

The goal of the Fedora Hubs project is to provide a consistent contributor experience across all Fedora teams. Hubs serve as an “intranet” for the Fedora Project. The many different projects in Fedora each have different processes and workflows. Hubs will be a single place where contributors can learn about and contribute to these projects in a consistent way.

Hubs is also a social tool for Fedora contributors. It’s designed to help you keep up with everything and everybody across a big open source project in ways that aren’t currently possible. Hubs solves obstacles so new contributors can get in touch with experienced ones.

Do you want to learn more about the history behind Hubs? Fedora Design team lead Máirín Duffy wrote a few blog posts on the progress of Hubs.

    As reported last week right here, in this space, the highly anticipated Fedora 25 operating system was delayed a second time during the first Fedora 25 Final Go/No-Go Meeting, due to a bug that would not allow the GRUB bootloader to be displayed when installing the Linux-based operating system alongside Mac OS X.

  • Flatpak Reviews - Linux Apps For All Distributions

    So Canonical sought to solve the problem with distributing applications on Linux due to the very many and different Linux distributions around and each with their own packaging formats. So Canonical introduced Snaps. Whew, that would be great. But the again, Canonical isn’t the only ones hoping to crack this problem on Linux. In fact, there are two other frameworks that are seeking to be the one stop app framework for distributing application on Linux. There is Flatpak and the AppImage. So today we take a look at Flatpak and what it means to Linux.

How Red Hat aims to make Kubernetes boring...and successful

Filed under
Red Hat

Many enterprise software companies try to jazz up their wares with fancy buzzwords (Cloud! Machine learning! Augmented reality!). Not Red Hat. Red Hat plays a very different game. Instead of trying to make software exciting, its stated goal is to make software very, very boring, as Red Hat Chief ARM Architect Jon Masters told a crowd at Supercomputing 2016.

By "boring" Masters didn't mean uninteresting. Instead, as he went on to explain, Red Hat "make[s] stuff that just works." This message plays well to risk-averse CIOs.
