  • What Customers Are Saying About Oracle Linux on Gartner Peer Insights [Ed: This does not say Oracle and Larry Ellison bribe Gartner for their corrupt "opinions".]

    Peer review platforms are becoming increasingly important to buyers when making IT purchasing decisions. This blog will cover the reviews customers have been giving Oracle Linux on the Gartner Peer Insights.

    Almost everyone is familiar with Gartner. Gartner is a world leading research and advisory company, trusted industry-wide to provide fair vendor evaluations through their published research and advisory services.

    Additionally, a few years back, Gartner began to offer Gartner Peer Insights. This online forum allows verified customers to write anonymous and candid reviews about their product experiences. Available online, reviews can be easily accessed and read, facilitating the customer-to-customer reference vetting component commonplace for most major IT purchases.

    Oracle Linux is one of the many products a customer can evaluate on Gartner Peer Insights. Our team is excited to share that Oracle Linux has received largely positive reviews!*

    One recent reviewer described it as “The Ultimate platform.” They go on to share: “The best things I like about it are performance and stability. I can get maximum performance with the least amount of effort and stability wise, I have never had a crash, I am yet to have one. Even when you have situations that may cause problems with other OS or other variants, Oracle enterprise Linux seems to do a better job of catching and handling those exceptions.”

  • Deploy integration components easily with the Red Hat Integration Operator

    Any developer knows that when we talk about integration, we can mean many different concepts and architecture components. Integration can start with the API gateway and extend to events, data transfer, data transformation, and so on. It is easy to lose sight of what technologies are available to help you solve various business problems. Red Hat Integration‘s Q1 release introduces a new feature that targets this challenge: the Red Hat Integration Operator.

    The Red Hat Integration Operator helps developers easily explore and discover components available in Red Hat OpenShift. One single Operator is now the entry point for getting the latest Red Hat Integration components. The Operator declaratively manages the components we want to enable, the namespaces to which we want to deploy, and their scope in the Red Hat OpenShift cluster using a Kubernetes custom resource.

  • 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.
