Red Hat has announced its Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1, the company’s selection of some of the latest open source C and C++ compilers and complementary development tools. Available through the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Program and related subscriptions, Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 is targeted at application development for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but is also potentially useful for all kinds of developers and administrators depending on Red Hat's cloud tools.
Press release: Red Hat Developer Toolset 3.1 Now Available
Which Red Hat scale-out storage product should you choose: Ceph or Gluster?
Red Hat has brought Ceph – acquired with InkTank in May last year – up to its engineering standards and branded it Red Hat Ceph Storage, and is now touting it alongside its Red Hat Gluster Storage.
Both Ceph and Gluster are open source, scale-out, software-defined storage products running on commodity hardware. Red Hat suggests Ceph is better for OpenStack and Gluster for Big Data analytics, but both could do either job.
Red Hat has introduced a new business resource planner to help enterprises quickly and efficiently address complex scheduling and resource planning challenges.
The new business planner is a part of Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite and Red Hat JBoss BRMS and is included with a subscription to JBoss BRMS at no addional cost.
The planner is based on the open source OptaPlanner JBoss community and is also designed to increase operational adaptability in the face of rapidly changing and unpredictable business environments.
The Cloud Edition of the Fedora 22 Beta Linux operating system was officially unveiled on April 21, along with all of Fedora's Spins, including Fedora 22 Server, Fedora 22 Workstation (GNOME), Fedora 22 KDE Plasma 5, Fedora 22 Xfce, Fedora 22 LXDE, and Fedora 22 MATE/Compiz.
We've announced earlier today the immediate availability for download and testing of the Fedora 22 Beta operating system. Included is the Live Workstation Edition for which we've prepared an in-depth screenshot tour.
Red Hat is looking to improve upon Docker’s software-delivery mechanism with the Atomic command feature of its Atomic Host operating system for Linux containers.
Last month, Red Hat released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL7) Atomic Host, a version of the enterprise operating system expressly designed to run containers. The “Atomic command” feature defines entry points for Project Atomic hosts, delivered via Docker container, with the goal of filling the software-delivery gaps in Linux container implementations.
As a champion of open source software Red Hat (RHT) may be best known for its distribution of Linux, but it turns out that the company’s fastest growing product in terms of adoption is actually its open source business process management (BPM) software.
With the releases today of upgraded Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite and Red Hat JBoss BRMS, Red Hat is trying to capitalize on that momentum by including new planning software in those releases that was developed by the OptaPlanner JBoss open source community project, said Phil Simpson, principal product marketing manager for BPM software at Red Hat.
Anyway, I thought this could be a good opportunity to actually ask the wider community a question, especially if you are using GNOME on another distribution than Fedora, what are we still missing at this point for you to consider making a switch to Fedora Workstation? I know that for some of you the answer might be as simple as ‘worn in shoes fits the best’, but anything you might have beyond that would be great to hear.
I can’t promise that we will be able to implement every suggestion you add to this blog post, but I do promise that we will review and consider every suggestion you provide and try to see how it can fit into development plans going forward.
