  • Red Hat's Results Underscore its Growing Focus on OpenStack

    Late last week, Red Hat reported earnings per share of 55 cents on revenue of $600 million, beating estimates of 54 cents and $590 million, respectively. One thing that went unsaid across much of the coverage is that the company is in the midst of a major shift in its strategy toward OpenStack-based cloud computing, and it looks like service revenues and positive momentum from that effort are starting to arrive.

    "Our growth was driven in part by expanding our footprint with customers as we closed a record number of deals over $1 million, up approximately 60 percent year-over-year," Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst said during his company's earnings call. Seven of the top 30 deals had OpenStack in there, nine had RHEV," Whitehurst said. "We had three OpenStack deals alone that were over $1 million. So I think we're seeing really, really, really good traction there."

    Open-source technology firm Red Hat Inc, which hit the $2-billion revenue milestone two quarters ago, is looking to achieve $2.4 billion in FY 2017 and $5 billion in the next five years.

    The company is betting on India, its second largest operation outside the US, as one of the key growth engines to help achieve its aspirational revenue goal of $5 billion by 2021.

    “India is a bright spot for Red Hat for three reasons,” Rajesh Rege, Managing Director, Red Hat India, told BusinessLine.

Exactly What Is OpenStack? Red Hat's Rich Bowen Explains

OSS

You've probably heard of OpenStack. It's in the tech news a lot, and it's an important open source project. But what exactly is it, and what is it for? Rich Bowen of Red Hat provided a high-level view of OpenStack as a software project, an open source foundation, and a community of organizations in his talk at LinuxCon North America.

OpenStack is a software stack that went from small to industry darling at warp speed. It has three major components: The compute service runs the virtual machines (VMs), and it has a networking service and a storage service, plus a dashboard to run everything. OpenStack is only six years old, and was born as a solution devised by Rackspace and NASA to solve a specific problem.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Red Hat
Reviews

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right.

You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy.

  • Red Hat relabels OpenShift Enterprise to Container Platform

    Red Hat’s on-premises application serving software has been given a rename from OpenShift Enterprise to OpenShift Container Platform, at the same time adding a slew of enhancements to improve scalability and security.

    OpenShift started out as Red Hat’s platform as a service (PaaS) offering for application development centred on its JBoss enterprise Java platform, but was refocused around Docker and Kubernetes with the rise in popularity of containers for deploying applications.

    Now, OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 offers improved developer features and support for greater scalability, with the ability to handle both cloud-native and traditional applications, according to the big rouge one.

    “The latest updates to the platform enable customers to more fully make use of their container technology investments and better embrace a DevOps methodology. This gives developers their needed automation tools and helps operations teams to better scale to meet customer demand, both with the aim of bringing better applications to market more quickly,” Red Hat’s OpenShift chief Ashesh Badani said in a statement.

  • Red Hat ships out OpenShift container platform, pushes new Docker initiative

    Red Hat Inc. appears to be shaking up the Docker ecosystem with the launch of its OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 along with a new project called the Open Container Initiative Daemon (OCID) that aims to optimize production deployments of containers.

    OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 is Red Hat’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, formerly known as OpenShift Enterprise. The project underwent a major evolution in version 3, with Red Hat making it a container-based system built on top of Kubernetes.

    The latest version is based on Kubernetes 1.3, which was released last July, and integrates Docker Engine 1.10 instead of the latest 1.12 release, as that’s not currently supported by Kubernetes.

  • ​Red Hat Platform-as-a-Service cloud loves containers

    When Red Hat launched its OpenShift Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud in 2013, the focus was on making life easier for developers. OpenShift's theme remains the same but Red Hat has made it crystal clear that developing on the cloud today means using containers. The name says it all: Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.3.

  • Big biz happy to whip out credit cards for pay-as-you-go – Red Hat

    Linux and open-source cloud supremo Red Hat is looking at adapting its licensing to please enterprise customers who want greater flexibility in the way they pay for software and services, including a possible pay-as-you-go model.

    The move was mooted by chief executive Jim Whitehurst during a conference call for Red Hat’s Q2 2017 financial results this week. The firm detailed the progress it has been making in expanding its cloud business based around its OpenStack distribution, OpenShift application platform, JBoss middleware and tools such as its Ceph software-defined storage.

  • Red Hat’s stock price and employee headcount are rising

    Red Hat’s future growth prospects – which the open-source software company has invested in by adding roughly 1,000 new hires over the last six months – helped push the company’s shares 5 percent higher in early trading Thursday.

    The uptick in the stock came after the Raleigh-based company reported a better-than-expected 19 percent jump in revenue in its fiscal second quarter and boosted its revenue guidance for entire fiscal year to a range of $2.415 billion to $2.435 billion, a $15 million bump at the upper end.

  • New Red Hat project looks a lot like a Docker fork

    There have been rumblings about a possible split in the Docker ecosystem. Now Red Hat and the Open Container Initiative have unveiled a project that may not be pitched as a Docker fork, but sure has the makings of one.

    The OCID project uses many Docker pieces to create a runtime for containers that can be embedded directly into the Kubernetes container orchestration system.

pump.io Servers Adoption

  • Adopt a pump.io server
    As most of you know, E14N is no longer my main job, and I've been putting my personal time, energy, and money into keeping the pump network up and running. I haven't always done a good job, and some of the nodes have just fallen off the network. I'd like to ask people in the community to start taking over the maintenance and upkeep of these servers.
  • Prodromou: Adopt a pump.io server
    There are currently around 25 servers in the federated network initially started by Prodromou, which does not count other pump.io instances. He notes that one important exception is the identi.ca site, which is significantly larger than the rest, and which he would like to find a trusted non-profit organization to maintain.

Intel Core i7 6800K Benchmarks On Ubuntu + Linux 4.8

While the Core i7 6800K has been available for a few months now, there hadn't been any review on it since Intel hadn't sent out any Broadwell-E samples for Linux testing this time around. However, I did end up finally buying a Core i7 6800K now that the Turbo Boost Max 3.0 support is finally coming together (at first, Intel PR said it wouldn't even be supported on Linux) so that I can run some benchmarks there plus some other interesting items on the horizon for benchmarking. Here are some benchmarks of the i7-6800K from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the Linux 4.8 kernel. Read more
