Red Hat's CEO is dead wrong about the cloud

Filed under
Red Hat
Server

Embedded in Whitehurst’s argument is that while public cloud can work for disparate workloads, nonvarying workloads are best “hard-wired” in a private cloud. If you know the compute/storage requirements, why not run those workloads on dedicated local resources? A modest capital investment ends up being a lot cheaper than long, drawn-out, public cloud operating costs.

Fedora 22: The Latest

  • New blivet-gui for Fedora 22

    The biggest new for Fedora 23 is that blivet-gui will no longer require root privilegies for the GUI part. There are now two separate processes, one for the UI, running as a regular user and second one for the "backend", running as root. But you'll still need to provide your root password to start the backend (it isn't a daemon). This feature is already finished and packaged in rawhide repos.

    [...]

    Other new features for Fedora 23 includes LVM thin-provisioning support and support for creating and managing LVM snapshots.

  • Time to revisit how we’re doing updates?

    Fedora 22 is out and it’s again the most quality release we’ve ever released. Our quality assurance is improving and on the developer side, we’re also trying to do our best heavily using ABRT retrace server to prioritize bugs that affect many users. Unfortunately while the quality of releases itself is improving, the quality of updates that follow the release is not.

  • Bookmarking Hubs

    One of the main points regarding the functionality of the Fedora Hubs site is the idea that each user will have the ability both to become a member of various hubs, and also to subscribe to them. For easy access to these hubs, a list of the hubs each user ‘follows’ is collected sitewide in the header area of Fedora Hubs. The mockups in this post describe the ways that users will be able to customize their personal hub ‘bookmarks’.

  • Joining Hubs & Personal Profiles

    Sorry to spam your feeds today! I’m trying to collect all my thoughts about what I’ve been working on before the Fedora Hubs workshop tomorrow morning. Since my last post was pretty long, I’m combining these two different concepts I’ve been designing over the past week into one post. While both of them are at least as complex as the hub bookmarks, I ran into a lot fewer mental roadblocks when figuring it out, so I have fewer random thought tangents to explain away, so (hopefully!) this post will be a little shorter. (edit: It really wasn’t. Sorry!)

Emergency Security Band-Aids with Systemtap

Filed under
Red Hat
Security

Software security vulnerabilities are a fact of life. So is the subsequent publicity, package updates, and suffering service restarts. Administrators are used to it, and users bear it, and it’s a default and traditional method.

On the other hand, in some circumstances the update & restart methods are unacceptable, leading to the development of online fix facilities like kpatch, where code may be surgically replaced in a running system. There is plenty of potential in these systems, but they are still at an early stage of deployment.

6-Way File-System Comparison On The Linux 4.1 Kernel

With the Linux 4.1 kernel having recently been released, I decided to conduct a fresh round of file-system comparisons on this new kernel using a solid-state drive. The file-systems tested in this article were the in-tree EXT4, Btrfs, XFS, F2FS, ReiserFS, and NILFS2 file-systems while a follow-up article will take a look at the out-of-tree contenders like Reiser4 and ZFS atop Linux 4.1.

  • Fedora For MIPS Is Now Out In Testing, Supports The Creator CI20
    In cooperation with Imagination Technologies, the first Fedora image for the MIPS architecture is now out in testing. This initial Fedora 22 MIPS release supports the low-cost MIPS Creator CI20 development board that packs in two 1.2GHz MIPS32 processor cores and PowerVR graphics.
  • Pinos Is For Linux Video What PulseAudio Is For Audio
    Christian Schaller of Red Hat explained in the new blog post, "One of the original goals of Pinos was to provide the same level of advanced hardware handling for Video that PulseAudio provides for Audio. For those of you who has been around for a while you might remember how you once upon a time could only have one application using the sound card at the same time until PulseAudio properly fixed that. Well Pinos will allow you to share your video camera between multiple applications and also provide an easy to use API to do so."
  • Fedora Is Still Looking For A Diversity Advisor
    Back in March there was the announcement of Fedora looking for a diversity advisor as a volunteer position to help promote diversity within this popular Linux distribution. Unfortunately it looks like their initial search didn't yield any suitable applicants so they're back to looking for more people interested in that position.
