Why bother having a process for proposing changes to your open source project? Why not just let people do what they're doing and merge the features when they're ready? Well, you can certainly do that if you're the only person on the project. Or maybe if it's just you and a few friends.
Kubernetes, microservices and the advent of cloud native deployments have created a Renaissance-era in computing. As developers write and deploy code as part of continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) production processes, an explosion of tools has emerged for CI/CD processes, often targeted for cloud native deployments.
Shannon Nelson from the Oracle Linux Kernel Development team offers these tips and tricks to help make host network diagnostics easier. He also includes a recommended playlist for accompanying your debugging!
Unikernels are single-purpose virtual machines (VM). They only run one application—which is interesting when you think about it, because that’s precisely how a lot of DevOps practitioners provision their applications today. There is way too much software to provision nowadays—pools of app servers, clusters of databases, etc. Unikernels are fast to boot, fast to run, small in size, way more secure than Linux or containers and, if you have access to your own bare metal—either in your data center or through a provider—you can run thousands of them per box.
The Linux Foundation has announced datapractices.org, a vendor-neutral community working on the first-ever template for modern data teamwork, has joined as an official Linux Foundation project.
In Linux, your PATH is a list of directories that the shell will look in for executable files when you issue a command without a path. The PATH variable is usually populated with some default directories, but you can set the PATH variable to anything you like.
Notes on BPF (1) - A Tour of Progam Types
Oracle Linux kernel developer Alan Maguire presents this six-part series on BPF, wherein he presents an in depth look at the kernel's "Berkeley Packet Filter" -- a useful and extensible kernel function for much more than packet filtering.
It is now widely assumed that making the shift to microservices and cloud native environments will only lead to great things — and yet. As the rush to the cloud builds in momentum, many organizations are rudely waking up to more than a few difficulties along the way, such as how Kubernetes and serverless platforms on offer often remain a work in progress.
A little more than one year since LF Networking (LFN) came together, the project continues to demonstrate strategic growth, with Telstra coming on in November, and the umbrella project representing ~70% of the world’s mobile subscribers. Working side by side with service providers in the technical projects has been critical to ensure that work coming out of LFN is relevant and useful for meeting their requirements.
DevOps and the cloud are not only two of today’s biggest tech trends, but are inextricably linked. Research from DORA’s 2018 Accelerate State of DevOps Report and Redgate’s 2019 State of Database DevOps Report outline a clear correlation between cloud and DevOps adoption, with the two working together to contribute to greater business success.
After teasing fans for several months with the 3.9999 ISO refresh, the team at Solus has delivered "Fortitude," a new release of the independent Linux desktop OS. And like elementary OS did with Juno, it seems to earn that major version number.
In this article, and hopefully more to come, I will share interesting examples of hardware that has been certified by the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA).
As an introduction to this series, I'll start with a little background.
Throughout the evolution of software tools there exists a tension between generalization and partial specialization. A tool’s broader adoption is a form of natural selection, where its evolution is predicated on filling a given need, or role, better than its competition. This premise is imbued in the central tenets of Unix philosophy:
