Linux.com: Why are so many organizations embracing DevOps?
Security of the boot chain is a vital component of any other security solution, said Matthew Garrett of CoreOS in his presentation at Linux Security Summit. If someone is able to tamper with your boot chain then any other security functionality can be subverted. And, if someone can interfere with your kernel, any amount of self-protection the kernel might have doesn’t really matter.
When it comes to OpenStack cloud computing distributions, now offered by a variety of vendors, we are at a tipping point. As businesses and organizations demand flexible solutions for deploying cloud solutions based on OpenStack, competition is fierce. With so many vendors competing in this arena, market consolidation was bound to arrive, and it is here. What will the key differentiator be going forward? That would be support.
Managing log files is becoming increasingly harder with growing amounts of data and differing file formats. Giovanni Bechis, in his upcoming talk at LinuxCon Europe, describes a solution using the ELK stack (ElasticSearch, Logstash, Kibana), which he says let's you easily collect, parse, and manage log files from different sources.
As an open source Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution, Cloud Foundry makes it extremely easy to focus on delivering services and apps without having to worry about the platform. However, it’s not always so easy for developers and administrators new to Cloud Foundry to quickly get up to speed on the technology.
The Internet of Things market is fragmented, amorphous, and continually changing, and its very nature requires more than the usual attention to interoperability. It’s not surprising then, that open source has done quite well here -- customers are hesitant to bet their IoT future on a proprietary platform that may fade or become difficult to customize and interconnect.
In the first and second articles in this series, I introduced the powerful dig utility and its uses in performing DNS lookups along with a few time-saving examples of to put it into practice. In this part, I’ll look at my favorite dig utility feature -- which is definitely the “trace” option. For those unfamiliar with this process, let’s slowly run through it.
So there you are, you and your ace tech team, all excited about DevOps. You know that DevOps is the methodology that will move you past "yak shaving" and into building an IT infrastructure that will streamline and move your company forward. But how do you sell this to your bosses, and especially your non-technical bosses? Victoria Blessing, Operations Engineer for the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University, described the basics in her LinuxCon North America 2016 presentation.
Almost exactly one year ago Node.js released version 4, the first release after the re-unification of the io.js and Node.js codebases, Mikeal Rogers, Node.js Community Manager, reminded attendees at the Node.js Interactive conference in Amsterdam on Thursday.
