RDO is a version of OpenStack designed for use on CentOS, a Linux distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Actually, "based on" is a bit of a stretch, because CentOS is basically the RHEL source code recompiled by third parties—which is totally legal and kosher with Red Hat, of course, since the source is open. The only difference between CentOS and RHEL is that the former comes with no enterprise-class support or ecosystem integration.
Good news, everyone. New version of DNF and DNF-PLUGINS-CORE was built for F22 and F23. The documentation of yum and DNF differences was extended by yum plugin alternatives part and erase command was deprecated in favor of remove command name. DNF is getting more and more stable with 20 bug fixes while DNF-PLUGINS-CORE 0.1.6 newly adds Config manager.
With regard to packaging changes, DNF is running on Python 3 from F23 and dnf-yum compatible subpackage does not conflict with yum anymore. Read more on release notes of DNF and plugins.
In this interview with Red Hat's Alvaro Lopez Ortega, we learn a little bit about RDO, a community distribution of OpenStack which is designed to make it easy to install on operating systems like Fedora and CentOS. Alvaro is presenting at OpenStack Live next week, where he'll share both some technical details on RDO as well as a little bit about the community that makes it happen.
While Fedora developers did a good job getting out the Fedora 22 Alpha on time, the beta release of Fedora 22 will come at least one week late.
At today's Go/No-Go meeting it was decided F22 Beta isn't ready to ship next week but will have to be delayed by one week at least to take care of unresolved blocker bugs. This beta delay pushes back all future F22 milestones -- including the release of F22 final expected to take place in May.
Dell and Red Hat have upgraded their Dell Red Hat Cloud Solution to help enterprise customers meet their demand for more flexible, elastic and agile IT services.
The upgraded enterprise-grade private-cloud solution will help customers build highly scalable clouds that will be powered by OpenStack.
Dell and Red Hat co-engineered the new Cloud Solution with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Dell PowerEdge R630 and R730xd high-density rack servers.
Red Hat senior manager, Colin McCabe, has laid out the opportunities and possibilities businesses should consider when deciding on implementing and open source solutions.
“Open source is a great fit for any organisation that is looking to innovate more rapidly and effectively, and to save costs and increase the bottom line," he said.
“At Red Hat, we’ve been working for over two decades to maintain the open source model. It’s in Red Hat’s DNA to unravel complex technology challenges ranging from Cloud applications to content management using open source solutions. Red Hat is part of different open source communities and works on a variety of projects.
Speaking to ChannelBuzz.ca ahead of the company’s North American Partner Conference here, Mark Enzweiler, senior vice president of global channel sales and alliances at Red Hat, described a shift in the conversation his company and its partners are having with their customers. Gone are the days of convincing customers that open source is “for real” in the enterprise. Now everybody’s got an opinion on open source – not just Linux, but other major projects as well, most notably OpenStack. Now, they want to know more, and that means partners have to know more.
It’s been almost a year since the OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability, a flaw which started a trend of the branded vulnerability, changing the way security vulnerabilities affecting open-source software are being reported and perceived. Vulnerabilities are found and fixed all the time, and just because a vulnerability gets a name and a fancy logo doesn’t mean it is of real risk to users.
DNF is the next-generation Yum and after being available for the past few Fedora releases, with Fedora 22 it's ready for prime-time. Kevin Fenzi last week started a mailing list thread about dnf replacing yum and dnf-yum. DNF is installed by default as part of the "core" group, DNF-Yum is also installed by default, Yum is still installed so if something still depends directly on it or a user manually wants it, and the Yum RPM package now requires dnf-yum.
