The new course uses a hands-on lab atmosphere to provide IT professionals with the skill-sets they need to implement and maintain OpenStack deployments. Aimed at helping enterprises build their teams’ readiness to adopt and use Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, the course takes an in depth look at the technology and how organizations can fully reap the benefits. The OpenStack Networking (Neutron) training course is available via traditional and virtual classrooms and on-site private team training. In the coming weeks, the new course will be available via self-paced online learning for added flexibility and convenience.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers can now shift their licenses from on-premise gear up into Google’s cloud as well as Amazon’s.
Google can’t build its public cloud into a behemoth by itself.
Today, key enterprise software company Red Hat unveiled Google’s latest partnership initiative, to let Red Hat customers move certain subscriptions to the growing Google Compute Engine.
Fedora Web Site
Although she posted it on April 1st, Fedora designer Máirín Duffy’s proposal for Fedora’s website (considering Fedora.next) is no joke. I mentioned this effort last month, but there’s a lot more detail here, with sections on the brochure site, a user support site, and the “community hub”. Worth a read — and we’d love your input, especially on how we might make this idea succeed now when somewhat similar efforts have faltered in the past.
The Fedora Playground Repository would effectively be a staging area for new packages before they are up to the standards of being added to the main Fedora repository. Fedora Playground packages would be packages destined for inclusion into the main archive along with other packages that are never going to make it there. Stability wouldn’t be guaranteed by this archive and it would continue to meet Fedora’s strict requirements for packages needing to be free software and cannot contain proprietary or patented software.
Fedora Linux, the open source operating system associated with Red Hat (RHT), has major changes on the horizon. That’s the plan, at least, as open source developers discuss revamping the platform through the initiative they’re calling Fedora.next.
