    IBM has splashed yet more cash on cloud after confirming it plans to acquire BoxBoat Technologies – the Maryland-based DevOps consultancy and enterprise Kubernetes certified service provider.

    Financial details about the deal were not disclosed.

    According to a statement, the acquisition will "extend IBM's container strategy and implementation services portfolio to further advance IBM's hybrid cloud strategy and accelerate Red Hat OpenShift adoption globally."

    IBM has said OpenShift, which Big Blue bought along with Red Hat for $34bn in 2018, is an important part of its plan to increase revenue growth and profitability. Red Hat introduced new managed cloud services and expanded the OpenShift Kubernetes platform with new features including Edge deployment at its recent summit in April.

  • You asked, we acted: How Red Hat has acted on customer feedback [Ed: But Red Hat, you still killed CentOS (as it was) in spite of popular demand]

    At Red Hat, we take customer feedback seriously. At the end of projects with our clients, formal training, purchases of software or solutions, and even technical support, we regularly hold feedback sessions. In doing so, this feedback loop can help identify points of improvement in various aspects and areas of the company to provide an improved customer experience.

    In our Customer Portal, you will find a page dedicated to showing the actions we’ve implemented based on feedback we’ve received called "You Asked. We Acted."

    This is one of the ways that we show how Red Hat is taking action to implement changes based on feedback we’ve received.

  • 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.
