HPE backs off from OpenStack development

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

HPE still supports OpenStack in its Helion cloud program, but it’s cutting way back on how much it’s spending on helping create OpenStack.

HPE has had a… curious cloud history. It’s tried the public cloud, that failed. It’s supported several different cloud platforms, and now, having been a major OpenStack cloud developer, it’s backing off devoting major programming resources to OpenStack. Mind you, OpenStack is still offering and supporting the OpenStack cloud under the Helion brand. Indeed, HPE just released the latest version of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud, Helion OpenStack 4.0.

Tool That Lets You Install Ubuntu Touch on Your Mobile Device Now Supports Maru

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

It’s been a little over a week since we told you all about Marius Quabeck’s awesome new tool that lets you easily install the Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system on your device, and it looks like the developer was quite busy adding new functionality.

First and foremost, the magic-device-tool now has a cool new logo that we think it looks really great, so congrats to the artist (Michael Kisiel). And now for the hardcore stuff implemented since the first release, as users will now be able to install the Maru operating system on their Nexus 5 devices. „I’m happy about the small community that has built around the project so far and we are constantly adding ideas to the todo,“ says Marius Quabeck exclusively for Softpedia. „Just recently someone suggested to add snappy to magic device tool so it gets easier to flash the required snappy image for your specific device onto an SD card.“

Can Enterprise Data Privacy be Addressed by Open Source Software?

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Data privacy is defined by an organization’s ability to determine what data in a computer system can be shared by third parties.

IT leaders are increasingly concerned with enterprise data privacy and protection, and they need ways to maintain control of what data is being accessed. What kinds of data are subject to privacy concerns in an enterprise context?

  • Regulated data, such as patient’s health records, customer information, or accounting records; often industry-specific and protected by laws and treaties such as HIPAA, ECPA, or the EU-US Privacy Shield
  • Employee data, such as Social Security numbers, payroll information, or personal details, such as phone numbers and home addresses
  • Unregulated data, such as the email conversations, presentations, and reports that are constantly produced by employees
  • Competitor-sensitive data, such as intellectual property documents, business metrics, planning and strategy documents, and financial documents
  • Credentials, such as user passwords, encryption keys, and access tokens

Ubuntu 16.10: The Linux for the cloud and containers arrives

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Ubuntu is still a popular desktop Linux, but it’s clear that what Canonical really wants is to consolidate Ubuntu’s position as the Linux for the cloud.

Once upon a time Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux was known as the desktop Linux. It’s desktop is still very popular and the company is still investing in improving it. But, you don’t need to look hard at the latest release, Ubuntu 16.10, to see Canonical believes its future is as the enterprise Linux for containers and the cloud. Ubuntu was already the most popular Linux in clouds. Now, with its Canonical distribution of Kubernetes, Canonical wants Ubuntu to be the most popular Linux for containers.

Fedora 25 beta released: Community Linux for containers arrives

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Fedora used to be just for cutting-edge desktop users and programmers. Today, it’s still for them, with the long, long delayed release of the Wayland display server, but it’s also for cloud builders.

Many Linux programmers use Fedora, Red Hat’s community Linux distribution for development. But Fedora has been far more than that lately. It’s also become the testing ground for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). That means it comes in three different editions: Workstation, Server and Cloud

Linux 5.0 Kernel is Coming in 2017

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

It’s very likely that the Linux 5.0 kernel will debut at some point in 2017. Linux creator Linus Torvald´s hasn’t yet officially set a date, but that’s not quite how he works or how the Linux development process pushes releases.

In a Google Plus post Torvald´s noted that after the Linux 4.8 release, we’re now half-way between Linux 4.0 and 5.0. Torvald´s isn’t just counting the release number here either. Linux 3.20 was renumbered as Linux 4.0 during it’s development cycle in early 2015.Linux 3.0 debuted in 2011, following the Linux 2.6.39 kernel. So doing the simple math progression here, Linux 2.6.40 became Linux 3.0 and then Linux 3.20 (just under half of 40) became Linux 4.0.
