  • Red Hat CIO shares 4 tactics to make the most of your first 100 days on the job

    When you start a new CIO role, having a 100-day plan is table stakes. Having that plan-on-a-page is only part of the equation for a successful transition, though.

  • GNOME 3.24, LDC 1.1 & Minimal Container Image Proposed For Fedora 26

    There are more fairly last-minute change/feature proposals for Fedora 26.

    It should come as no surprise at all, but for formalities, there is the change proposal for GNOME 3.24 in Fedora 26. As usual, Fedora sticking to the latest GNOME upstream components for their Fedora Workstation releases. GNOME 3.24 is working on many improvements including better Wayland support, updated GNOME System Settings, ownCloud integration in some components, UI improvements to Epiphany, and a whole lot more as we've been covering in many articles.

  • Helping new users get on IRC

    Hubs uses Freenode IRC for its chat feature. I talked quite a bit about the basics of how we think this could work (see “Fedora Hubs and Meetbot: A Recursive Tale” for all of the details.)

    One case that we have to account for is users who are new Fedora contributors who don’t already have an IRC nick or even experience with IRC. A tricky thing is that we have to get them identified with NickServ, and continue to identify them with Nickserv seamlessly and automatically, after netsplits and other events that would cause them to lose their authentication to Nickserv, without their needing to be necessarily aware that the identification process was going on. Nickserv auth is kind of an implementation detail of IRC that I don’t think users, particularly those new to and unfamiliar with IRC, need to be concerned with.

  • Developing open leaders

    For many people, that requires a profound mindset shift in how to think about leaders. Yet in some ways, it's what we all intuitively know about how organizations really work. As Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst has pointed out, in any organization, you have the thermometers—people who reflect the organizational "temperature" and sentiment and direction—and then you have the thermostats—people who set those things for the organization.

    Monash University has implemented a multi-petabyte deployment at its eResearch Centre, giving the Melbourne-based advanced computing facility the capacity to store and manage massive workloads of data.

    The university implemented a software-defined solution that uses Red Hat Ceph Storage on Dell EMC PowerEdge R630 and R730xd rack servers that it expects will accelerate application performance, simplify systems management, and address the university's growing data storage requirements.

CentOS 7.3 (1611) Linux Distro Now Available for 32-Bit (i386) Architectures

Filed under
Red Hat

CentOS developer and maintainer Johnny Hughes is today, January 30, 2017, announcing the immediate availability of the latest CentOS 7.3 (1611) GNU/Linux operating system for the 32-bit (i386) hardware architecture.

If some of the most popular GNU/Linux distributions have started dropping support for 32-bit (i686/x86) installations or plan to do so in the near future, many are still installable on older computers from 10 years go.

CentOS 7.3 (1611) is the latest addition to the list of 32-bit supported Linux-based operating systems, thanks to a group of hard working people from the CentOS AltArch SIG initiative trying to create alternative architecture support for CentOS Linux.

Containers and OpenStack

  • Stateful containerized applications with Kubernetes
    To date, almost all of the talk about containers and microservices has been about "stateless" applications. This is entirely understandable because stateless applications are simply easier. However, containers and orchestration have matured to the point where we need to take on the interesting workloads: the stateful ones. That's why two of my talks at SCALE 15x are about databases, containers, and Kubernetes, which is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Stateless services are applications like web servers, proxies, and application code, which may handle data, but they don't store it. These are easy to think about in an orchestration context because they are simple to deploy and simple to scale. If traffic goes up, you just add more of them and load-balance. More importantly, they are "immutable"; there is very little difference between the upstream container "image" and the running containers in your infrastructure. This means you can also replace them at any time, with little "switching cost" between one container instance and another.
  • 13 Companies Leading the Way with Containers
    As DevOps has grown in popularity, an increasing number of organizations are looking to containerization technology as a way to simplify and streamline application deployment and management. In fact, the RightScale 2017 State of the Cloud Report found that Docker, the leading containerization tool, was the most popular DevOps tool among the companies it surveyed. Forty percent of the enterprises surveyed said that they use Docker, and 30 percent more said they planned to do so in the future.
