Linux containers are definitely attracting a lot of attention as cloud-native alternatives to virtual machines for application isolation and deployment, but where does your company sit on the adoption spectrum?
As organizations grapple with how best to make business decisions in the face of challenges from limited resources, both human and capital, and find the speed of competition rapidly advancing, they must look to not just new technologies but new paradigms in order to stay afloat. Many organizations are looking to Linux containers as a part of this solution.
Highly secure trusted cloud platform provider Apcera, Inc. today announced the release of its own approach to securely managing Docker containers in production at scale. The product is an enterprise-ready orchestration framework called the Apcera Trusted Cloud Platform and it is designed to address today’s gaps in container deployment, management and scalability with an eye for trust and security.
DevOps couldn’t be hotter. To cope with modern customer demands, applications need to be developed, tested and put into production swiftly. Industry experts have been preaching about DevOps for faster, more reliable software development. Gartner expects this development approach will go mainstream by the end of 2016.
Christine Hall penned an opt-ed today saying that she remembers Microsoft's dirty tactics, tactics they still employ while professing love for Linux. The media can fawn all they want, but Hall will never trust them. Elsewhere, Jack Germain said LinDoz is a "smooth Windows-Cinnamon blend" and Jamie Watson had nice things to say about KaOS 2016.06. Mint 18 Cinnamon and MATE editions are planned for this week and Red Hat said "RHEL is getting in the way."
Crush Your Enemies from Vile Monarch and Gambitious Digital Entertainment looks like a pretty fun little RTS game and it's coming to Linux on July 13th.
You can pre-order it right now on Games Republic (this supports us a little), or directly from Steam if you prefer. Which will give you a Steam key at release.
I love XCOM 2, it's probably my favourite strategy game right now. The problem is, it's still a bit of a buggy mess, a lovable mess mind you.
I've played 47 49 hours of the game, and I do feel like certain aspects of it are lacking. I will keep searching for you, but here's some quick picks. There's thousands of modifications available for XCOM 2, so even these took a while of sifting through junk.
I'm never one to shy away from patting my fellow Linux users on the back, so here it is *pats*. Thanks to the Linux gaming community and our own contributor BTRE, ZED by Eagre Games has passed the funding goal on Kickstarter.
They now need less than $2,000 to hit their first stretch-goal, so hopefully they will hit that as it sounds like it will be a very nice thing to have.
I shot off a message to Nightdive Studios about their Linux plans for System Shock since Linux is a stretch goal. The reply doesn't fill me with confidence to pledge right now.
My question: "About the Linux stretch goal, is that for a Linux version after the initial Windows release or for a same-day Linux release?"
