  • Ben Cotton: What does it mean for a Linux distribution to be “fresh”?

    I recently had a discussion with Luboš Kocman of openSUSE about how distros can monitor their “freshness”. In other words: how close is a distro to upstream? From our perspectives, it’s helpful to know which packages are significantly behind their upstreams. These packages represent areas that might need attention, whether that be a gentle nudge to the maintainer or recruiting additional volunteers from the community.

    The challenge is that freshness can mean different things. The Repology project monitors a large number of distributions and upstreams to report on the status. But simply comparing the upstream version number to the packaged version number ignores a lot of very important context.

  • Kogito: Laying the foundation for the next generation of cloud-native business automation

    Earlier this year, Red Hat Process Automation subscribers gained access to Kogito-based capabilities. This release was the first version of Red Hat Process Automation to introduce components of Kogito, an open source community project that seeks to create the next generation of business automation technology. Red Hat Process Automation has continued to expand its Kogito offerings per the platform’s latest update.

    As a Kubernetes-native business automation tool, Kogito is designed to deliver powerful capabilities for building process- and rules-based applications natively in the cloud on a modern container platform.

    While Kogito draws on capabilities of traditional business process management (BPM) and business rules management (BRM) systems, there are significant differences in how Kogito implements them compared to earlier generations of business automation software.

  • Bringing your favorite runtimes to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4 | Red Hat Developer

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.4 is generally available, and developing your applications on RHEL has never been easier. When we ask developers why they choose Red Hat Enterprise Linux for development over other operating systems, consistency and reliability rank at the top of the list.

    A big part of that reliability comes from using curated runtimes for your programming language. These are available through application streams on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which bring the same reliability promise, but on a closer parity to the pace of languages and frameworks that developers love to use. As with every RHEL release, we are excited to bring you newer versions of popular language runtimes in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4. In this article, we will take a closer look at the newly added runtimes and discuss why they matter for your applications.

  • Modern Fortune Teller: Using GitOps to automate application deployment on Red Hat OpenShift | Red Hat Developer

    Our team recently created an application called Beer Horoscope, which we used to illustrate the extensive possibilities for modern software development and deployment with Red Hat OpenShift and community-built free software tools. The application's front end collects user preferences and makes beer recommendations. The back end performs machine learning on users and products (beers) to make appropriate recommendations. Figure 1 shows how we combined an event-driven architecture with machine learning models that are applicable to numerous real-world scenarios.

  • How to explain GitOps in plain English

    First, DevOps took the IT world by storm. Now, GitOps is garnering similar interest and adoption. There’s a relationship between the two: The latter can be thought of as a more specific version of the former.

    “If DevOps is a way of life, GitOps is prescriptive about how you practice it,” says E.G. Nadhan, chief architect and strategist, Red Hat North America. “GitOps advocates a cloud-native or microservices-centric vision from the get-go.”

Samsung, Red Hat to Work on Linux Drivers for Future Tech

The metaverse is expected to uproot system design as we know it, and Samsung is one of many hardware vendors re-imagining data center infrastructure in preparation for a parallel 3D world. Samsung is working on new memory technologies that provide faster bandwidth inside hardware for data to travel between CPUs, storage and other computing resources. The company also announced it was partnering with Red Hat to ensure these technologies have Linux compatibility. Read more

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
