Subject: Achtung Penguin! SUSE tunes up Linux for SAP

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

It seems natural enough that SUSE Linux and SAP would be technical allies; both hail from Germany and both try to peddle business-grade software to enterprises. SAP, which has a huge installed base of Windows customers and a considerable number of Unix customers, cannot be seen to be playing favorites with its OS suppliers just because of nationalism. But it cannot stop – and would not stop – SUSE Linux, the commercial Linux distributor now owned by Attachmate, from making optimizations to its OS stack that make SAP apps run better.

Subject: NVIDIA Responds To Linus Torvalds' Critique

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

NVIDIA addressed the situation by saying "supporting Linux is important," and that it understands people's frustrations. So, it doesn't look like anything is going to change at Nvidia. Nvidia's support for Linux is interesting as the company joined the Linux Foundation in March this year.

Subject: Researcher: CIA, NSA may have infiltrated Microsoft to write malware

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

A leading security researcher has suggested Microsoft's core Windows and application development programming teams have been infiltrated by covert programmer/operatives from U.S. intelligence agencies. If it were true it would be another exciting twist to the stories of international espionage, sabotage and murder that surround Stuxnet, Duqu and Flame, the most successful cyberwar weapons deployed so far, with the possible exception of Windows itself. Nevertheless, according to Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer of antivirus and security software vendor F-Secure, the scenario that would make it simplest for programmers employed by U.S. intelligence agencies to create the Stuxnet, Duqu and Flame viruses and compromise Microsoft protocols to the extent they could disguise downloads to Flame as patches through Windows Update is that Microsoft has been infiltrated by members of the U.S. intelligence community.

Subject: Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) to a distributed replicated storage with GlusterFS. Nodes 1 and 2 (replication1) as well as 3 and 4 (replication2) will mirror each other, and replication1 and replication2 will be combined to one larger storage server (distribution). Basically, this is RAID10 over network. If you lose one server from replication1 and one from replication2, the distributed volume continues to work. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem.
