  • New HPE, Red Hat Partnership Looks to Speed up Container Adoption

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Red Hat have partnered, in a bid to help those enterprises struggling to bring containers into production.

    The partnership aims to help customers adopt and deploy containers in production much quicker than before; at a much larger scale.

    The partnership was announced by HPE yesterday. The company said it will optimise the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform on HPE Platforms; aiming to accelerate container application delivery for enterprise customers.

  • Getting to know Victor Tsao, Red Hat vice president and general manager for China

    Though I graduated as a chemical engineer, I was always interested in technology and this started with my early years at IBM, working on mainframe systems. My foray in learning technology continued with my career choices – I worked on supply chain software at i2 and later managed the virtualization business at Citrix, and big-data at SAP. All these companies were recognized for their leadership role in their business segments and so it was interesting to be part of their team and help contribute to their business. And when I look at Red Hat, I feel proud to be part of an organization who also has a leadership position and is singularly focused on collaborating with its customers and partners to address the dynamic business environment where we all compete.

  • Fedora Atomic Workstation: Getting comfortable with GNOME Builder

    I am still going with my attempt to use Fedora Atomic Workstation fulltime as my main  development system. As part of that, I am figuring out how to do GTK+ development on an immutable OS, using GNOME Builder.


    One aspect of GTK+ that I have worked on in this new setup is module loading. I’ve switched GTK+s printing support to use a GIO extension point, and of course, I wanted to test this before pushing it.

    So I was a bit surprised at first that the print dialog in gtk4-demo did not trigger my new module loading code and yet seemed to work just fine. But then I remembered that we are working in a flatpak sandbox now, so GTK+s portal support kicked in and helpfully redirected the print operation to an out-of-process print dialog.

HPE partners with Red Hat to bring containers to production

Filed under
Red Hat

Having trouble bringing containers into production? Red Hat and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) have an answer. They're optimizing Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP), Red Hat's Kubernetes container orchestration platform, on HPE platforms, including HPE Synergy.

Sure, it's easy to deploy containerized applications in development and test environments, but it's not so easy in enterprise-sized production environments. Enterprises often require container scalability, added security features, persistent storage, and manageability to deploy containers in production. To help speed up container application delivery, HPE and Red Hat are collaborating in what HPE calls the industry's "first composable infrastructure".

  • Red Hat CEO: Everyone is freaking out about Amazon — here's how to handle its frightening power

    Amazon has become the poster child for a new kind of business reality: the internet company who partners with you on the one hand, and competes with you on the other, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst tells Business Insider.

    As he talks to his CEO customers, which include 90% of the Fortune 500, "everyone is really freaked that Amazon is going to come into their market. And can they really compete?" he said.

    They have reason to fear. Amazon's business interests include just about everything from books to original TV shows to cloud computing and enterprise IT to groceries and on and on. And with its scale, it can swoop in and be an instant contender in almost any market, as its acquisition of Whole Foods last year proved.

    Whitehurst experienced this phenomenon first-hand about six months ago.

  • Team Silverblue Succeeds Fedora Atomic Workstation, Aims To Be In Great Shape By F30

    Red Hat's Matthias Clasen has announced to the Fedora Council members that the Fedora Atomic Workstation is now known as "Team Silverblue", while the name is a bit awkward and abstract, they do have plans for making Silverblue into great shape for the Fedora 29 and 30 cycles.

    Clasen with the Fedora Atomic Workstation special interest group have penned a whitepaper outlining "Team Silverblue" with their goals for F29/F30 and what this effort is all about.

  • Istio Egress: Exit Through the Gift Shop

    Using Istio with Red Hat OpenShift and Kubernetes makes life with microservices easier. Tucked away inside of Kubernetes pods, using the Istio service mesh, your code can run (mostly) in isolation. Performance, ease-of-changes, tracing, and so on are made available by simply using the Istio sidecar container model. But what if you want your microservice to talk to another service that is outside of your OpenShift/Kubernetes/pods environment?

  • Un-Storage for the modern enterprise

    Until recently, the application development and IT infrastructure worlds were entirely different planets and never the twain were going to meet. The introduction of DevOps started to form a bridge between the two worlds, offering greater integration and automation, but there’s something bigger at work here.

    Fundamentally, developers and infrastructure operators are wired differently. While developers are willing to experiment, focused on speed, and measured on innovativeness, infrastructure folks are risk-averse, focused on stability, and measured on operational efficiency.

    We’re in an age where developer-like thinking has permeated the infrastructure turf and is causing a massive, fundamental shift - especially in the storage landscape.

  • Fedora 28 Released
  • Fedora 28 Comes With New Software Options

    The new system provides alternative versions of the software and updates that come with the default release, according to Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller. It enables users to update specific components at the speed that meets their needs. Modularity gives users more control over their computing environments.

    Fedora Linux is the free community version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or RHEL. Fedora 28 continues the strategy of releasing three versions -- built from a common set of base packages -- that target different user bases. They are Fedora 28 Server, Fedora 26 Workstation and Fedora 28 Atomic Host.

  • Fedora 28: The new developers' Linux arrives

    Is Fedora Linux for everyone? No. I recommend Mint or Ubuntu for most users. But, if you're a Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or CentOS user, or an open-source programmer, it's another story. Then, Fedora should be your first choice.

    The Fedora Project is Red Hat's community-driven open-source Linux. Fedora is also essentially RHEL's test bed. As such, it uses cutting-edge software, such as the 4.16.3 Linux kernel. This latest version, Fedora 28, comes in three distinct editions: Fedora 28 Server, Fedora 26 Workstation, and Fedora 28 Atomic Host.

    All versions are built from a common set of base packages. As with all new Fedora releases, the packages come with numerous bug fixes and performance tweaks as well as new features. The Fedora 28 base package includes updated compilers and languages including the latest version of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 8, Golang 1.10, and Ruby 2.5.

  • Introducing Contributor Stories

    The Fedora Project community is a strong, caring community sharing the same Four Foundations: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First. Becoming friends is a natural consequence of our work as contributors, working together to advance free software. All of us have a good memory about someone or maybe a funny or inspirational moment with another contributor.

    Contributor Stories are just that: the record of our best moments with our Fedora friends. The story can be about our work in Fedora or something personal or unique which you would like to share with the community. Contributor Stories are a part of Fedora Appreciation Week, starting in November 2018.

Kubernetes: Red Hat's Operator Framework Project and Cisco

  • Red Hat Launches Kubernetes Operator Framework Project

    The open-source Kubernetes project is not just a container orchestration system, it can also be a platform for deploying and managing applications. That's the goal of the Kubernetes Operator Framework project, which Red Hat officially announced on May 1 at the Kubecon EU conference here.

    The basic idea behind the Operator Framework comes to Red Hat from CoreOS, which had been working on the preliminary concepts. Red Hat acquired CoreOS on Jan. 30 in a $250 million deal that also brought CoreOS' staff to Red Hat, including former CTO Brandon Philips. In a video interview with eWEEK, Philips explained what the operator framework is all about and also detailed his view on where Kubernetes is headed next.

  • [Podcast] PodCTL #33 – Operators Framework
  • Introducing the Operator Framework: Building Apps on Kubernetes

    To help make it easier to build Kubernetes applications, Red Hat and the Kubernetes open source community today share the Operator Framework -- an open source toolkit designed to manage Kubernetes native applications, called Operators, in a more effective, automated, and scalable way.

  • ​Cisco joins the Kubernetes cloud rush

    On May 1, Cisco announced Kubernetes support for AppDynamics and Cisco CloudCenter. With this integration, Cisco promises enterprises can easily harness the value of Kubernetes to help deliver experiences that exceed their customers' expectations for scale, sophistication, and velocity.

    How? To start with the basics, companies are rapidly adopting containers on the promise of increased application agility. It's containers that power continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD). While Kubernetes is a big help with this, since it enables you to manage multiple containers at once, there are still challenges with unlocking the full value of containers as they move applications from development into production environments in data centers and the cloud.

Thoughts on Flatpak after four months of Epiphany Technology Preview

It’s been four months since I announced Epiphany Technology Preview — which I’ve been using as my main browser ever since — and five months since I announced the availability of a stable channel via Flatpak. For the most part, it’s been a good experience. Having the latest upstream development code for everything is wonderful and makes testing very easy. Any user can painlessly download and install either the latest stable version or the bleeding-edge development version on any Linux system, regardless of host dependencies, either via a couple clicks in GNOME Software or one command in the terminal. GNOME Software keeps it updated, so I always have a recent version. Thanks to this, I’m often noticing problems shortly after they’re introduced, rather than six months later, as was so often the case for me in the past. Plus, other developers can no longer complain that there’s a problem with my local environment when I report a bug they can’t reproduce, because Epiphany Technology Preview is a canonical distribution environment, a ground truth of sorts.

What is a Linux server and why does your business need one?

IT organizations strive to deliver business value by increasing productivity and delivering services faster while remaining flexible enough to incorporate innovations like cloud, containers, and configuration automation. Modern workloads, whether they run on bare metal, virtual machines, containers, or private or public clouds, are expected to be portable and scalable. Supporting all this requires a modern, secure platform. The most direct route to innovation is not always a straight line. With the growing adoption of private and public clouds, multiple architectures, and virtualization, today’s data center is like a globe, with varying infrastructure choices bringing it dimension and depth. And just as a pilot depends on air traffic controllers to provide continuous updates, your digital transformation journey should be guided by a trusted operating system like Linux to provide continuously updated technology and the most efficient and secure access to innovations like cloud, containers, and configuration automation.

5 open source tools for building a map app in a snap

All the attention geographical information systems (GIS) have gotten in recent years may make you think they are something new. In fact, geospatial data helped play a major role more than 160 years ago in identifying the source of the deadly London cholera outbreak of 1854. Dr. John Snow, a local physician, suspected that contaminated drinking water was the source of the disease. During the investigation, he plotted a density map of cholera cases and interviewed residents in the affected neighborhood to learned about their water use habits. His analysis showed a high number of incidents near a communal water pump. Read more
