The Orange Pi Zero Plus is a quad -A53 version of the Zero that advances to Gigabit Ethernet. You also get WiFi, USB host and OTG, and Linux/Android images.

Shenzhen Xunlong is clearly trying to mess with our minds. The 48 x 46mm Orange Pi Zero that arrived last November with a quad-core Cortex-A7 Allwinner H2 was followed by two similarly sized versions of the Orange Pi Zero Plus 2: a model called the Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 with a quad -A7, 4K-ready Allwinner H3 SoC, and an Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 H5 model with a 64-bit, Cortex-A53 Allwinner H5. So with two Plus 2’s where was the Orange Pi Zero Plus? Here it is at last, now with a 48 x 45mm footprint, a quad -A53 H5 SoC, and a $14.90 price instead of $18.90 and $19.90 for the earlier Plus 2 H3 and H5 models.

  • Module offers 16-core Atom C3000 and four 10GbE ports

    Portwell’s “PCOM-B701” is a COM Express Type 7 with an up to 16-core Atom C3000 plus 4x 10GbE-KR, a GbE port, 20x PCIe lanes, and industrial temp support.

    Like the PCOM-B700G module that Portwell unveiled last month, the PCOM-B701 adopts the 125 x 95mm COM Express 3.0 Type 7 Basic form factor. Instead of supporting Intel’s 5th Gen Xeon or Pentium CPUs, however, it uses Intel’s new, up to 16-core Atom C3000 server-class chip, which we first saw in June on DFI’s similarly Type 7 DV970.

  • Thin Mini-ITX duo serves up Apollo Lake and Skylake-U

    Avalue’s EMX-APLP and EMX-SKLUP are thin Mini-ITX boards that tap Intel’s Apollo Lake and Skylake-U CPUs, respectively, each with triple displays and 4K.

    Avalue has launched a pair of “thin” Mini-ITX boards supporting Intel processors. The company never mentions the vertical dimension on the 170 x 170mm EMX-APLP and EMX-SKLUP motherboards, but the photos suggest they fit the general description. No OS support is listed, but Linux and Windows should run with no problems.

  • Samsung sponsors Tizen TVs for TEKKEN World Tour held in South Korea

    Samsung sponsored the event in South Korea as a potential opportunity to showcase their best display solutions to gamers who would be part of the event. The Electronics giant had sponsored six 65 inch QLED TVs and twenty 27-inch QLED Gaming monitors. With the Steam Link app recently announced, Samsung made use of the service to stream the Tekken 7 at the tournament for the gamers to display the capabilities of the QLED TV and the low latency it offers even in wireless streaming of the game.

  • The LG V30 rumor roundup: OLED, f1.6 camera, fancy “HD” haptics

    LG's next flagship smartphone is the LG V30, and while we've skipped the continuous drip of information that has been coming out about the device, a slow Monday is a perfect time for a rumor roundup! Maybe "rumor" is not the best way to describe a lot of this information—LG has been sending out non-stop press releases about the V30 all month.

  • HTC Promises to Bring Bluetooth 5.0 Support to HTC U11 Phones with Android 8.0

    Android 8.0 "O" is almost here, as Google's latest and greatest mobile operating system for Android smartphones and tablets, and it looks like it could enable Bluetooth 5.0 support on certain devices.

Programming: Programming Skills, Beignet OpenCL Now Supports LLVM 5.0, DRUD Tech Releases DDEV Community

     
  • The Four Layers of Programming Skills
    When learning how to code for the first time, there's a common misconception that learning how to code is primarily about learning the syntax of a programming language. That is, learning how the special symbols, keywords, and characters must be written in the right order for the language to run without errors. However, focusing only on knowledge of syntax is a bit like practicing to write a novel by only studying grammar and spelling. Grammar and spelling are needed to write a novel, but there are many other layers of skills that are needed in order to write an original, creative novel. [...] This is the layer that is most often focused on in the early learning phase. Syntax skills essentially means how to read and write a programming language using the rules for how different characters must be used for the code to actually work.
  • Beignet OpenCL Now Supports LLVM 5.0
    For those making use of Beignet for Intel graphics OpenCL acceleration on Linux, it finally has added support for LLVM 5.0. Beignet doesn't tend to support new LLVM versions early but rather a bit notorious for their tardiness in supporting new LLVM releases. LLVM 5.0 has been out for two weeks, so Beignet Git has moved on to adding support for LLVM 5. There were Beignet changes to libocl and GBE for enabling the LLVM 5.0 support.

  • Canonical Teams Up with Microsoft to Enable New Azure Tailored Ubuntu Kernel
    In a joint collaboration with Microsoft's Azure team, Canonical managed to enable a new Azure tailored Ubuntu kernel in the Ubuntu Cloud Images for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on Azure starting today, September 21, 2017. The Azure tailored Ubuntu kernel is now enabled by default for the Ubuntu Cloud images running the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system on Microsoft's Azure cloud computing platform, and Canonical vows to offer the same level of support as the rest of its Ubuntu kernels until the operating system reaches end of life.

Servers: Kubernetes, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), and Sysadmin 101

  • Kubernetes Snaps: The Quick Version
    When we built the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes (CDK), one of our goals was to provide snap packages for the various Kubernetes clients and services: kubectl, kube-apiserver, kubelet, etc. While we mainly built the snaps for use in CDK, they are freely available to use for other purposes as well. Let’s have a quick look at how to install and configure the Kubernetes snaps directly.
  • Kubernetes is Transforming Operations in the Enterprise
    At many organizations, managing containerized applications at scale is the order of the day (or soon will be). And few open source projects are having the impact in this arena that Kubernetes is. Above all, Kubernetes is ushering in “operations transformation” and helping organizations make the transition to cloud-native computing, says Craig McLuckie co-founder and CEO of Heptio and a co-founder of Kubernetes at Google, in a recent free webinar, ‘Getting to Know Kubernetes.’ Kubernetes was created at Google, which donated the open source project to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
  • Kubernetes gains momentum as big-name vendors flock to Cloud Native Computing Foundation
    Like a train gaining speed as it leaves the station, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation is quickly gathering momentum, attracting some of the biggest names in tech. In the last month and a half alone AWS, Oracle, Microsoft, VMware and Pivotal have all joined. It’s not every day you see this group of companies agree on anything, but as Kubernetes has developed into an essential industry tool, each of these companies sees it as a necessity to join the CNCF and support its mission. This is partly driven by customer demand and partly by the desire to simply have a say in how Kubernetes and other related cloud-native technologies are developed.
  • The Cloud-Native Architecture: One Stack, Many Options
    As the chief technology officer of a company specialized in cloud native storage, I have a first hand view of the massive transformation happening right now in enterprise IT. In short, two things are happening in parallel right now that make it radically simpler to build, deploy and run sophisticated applications. The first is the move to the cloud. This topic has been discussed so much that I won’t try to add anything new. We all know it’s happening, and we all know that its impact is huge.
  • Sysadmin 101: Leveling Up
    I hope this description of levels in systems administration has been helpful as you plan your own career. When it comes to gaining experience, nothing quite beats making your own mistakes and having to recover from them yourself. At the same time, it sure is a lot easier to invite battle-hardened senior sysadmins to beers and learn from their war stories. I hope this series in Sysadmin 101 fundamentals has been helpful for those of you new to the sysadmin trenches, and also I hope it helps save you from having to learn from your own mistakes as you move forward in your career.

Databases: PostgreSQL 10 RC1 and Greenplum

  • PostgreSQL 10 RC1 Released
    The PostgreSQL Global Development Group announces today that the first release candidate of version 10 is available for download. As a release candidate, 10 RC 1 should be identical to the final release of the new version. It contains fixes for all known issues found during testing, so users should test and report any issues that they find.
  • PostgreSQL 10 Release Candidate 1 Arrives
    PostgreSQL 10 has been queuing up improvements to declarative partitioning, logical replication support, an improved parallel query system, SCRAM authentication, performance speed-ups, hash indexes are now WAL, extended statistics, new integrity checking tools, smart connection handling, and many other promising improvements. Our earlier performance tests of Postgre 10 during its beta phase showed some speed-ups over PostgreSQL 9.
  • Pivotal Greenplum Analytic Database Adds Multicloud Support
    Pivotal’s latest release of its Greenplum analytic database includes multicloud support and, for the first time, is based entirely on open source code. In 2015, the company open sourced the core of Pivotal Greenplum as the Greenplum Database project. “This is the first commercially available release that we are shipping with the open source project truly at its core,” said Elisabeth Hendrickson, VP of data research and development at Pivotal.
