Boycott Linux, Fedora Beta a Go, and Drupal Yikes

fedoraThe top story tonight is a highly critical flaw in Drupal 7 that may have allowed a lot of compromised websites. At tonight’s Go/No-Go meeting, Fedora 21 Beta was approved for next week. The folks at ROSA have released an LXDE version and LibreOffices 4.3.3 and 4.2.7 were released. Red Hat Software Collections 1.2 was released and Jack Wallen looks at the "science behind Ubuntu Unity’s popularity."

Many websites today picked up on a "highly critical" public service announcement from the Drupal Security Team. The Register is calling it a "Drupalocalypse." An SQL injection flaw was announced October 15 and within hours crackers were doing their worst. The announcement from Drupal today said if you didn’t patch your Drupal 7 website by October 15 11:00 PM UTC, then you should consider it compromised. See the announcement for instructions how to fix it now.

ROSA‘s default desktop offering is a highly customized KDE that a number of reviewers don’t appreciate. Well, grab your boot straps because the ROSA project today announced an LXDE version. They say this unexpected move is due to many requests from the community for a lighter weight option. ROSA R4 LXDE needs 256 MB RAM, six gigabyte partition, and a Pentium IV/Celeron class processor. is reporting on a new boycott initiative, this time against our beloved Linux kernel. The philosophical "Rundown" sounds familiar: against Unix philosophy, device tree is a forced dependency, and the kernel is single point of failure. It suggests using Minix instead. said, "This will not have any visible or real impact on the Linux kernel. The project is too big and too important."

Canonical’s OpenStack Offerings to Change the Company’s Direction

Canonical is drawing a lot of attention after unveiling its own Ubuntu OpenStack distribution, and part of the reason is that Ubuntu is already the most popular platform of all for building OpenStack deployments on. That fact was reported in the OpenStack Foundation’s survey findings and has been bolstered elsewhere.

As I noted all the way back in May, Canonical is increasingly going to be competing with players like Red Hat and Mirantis in the OpenStack arena.  The Canonical Distribution for Ubuntu OpenStack is billed as offering "the widest range of commercially supported vendor options for storage, software-defined networking and hypervisor from Canonical and its OpenStack partners."

The OpenStack Foundation has reported that its survey results show OpenStack deployments being built on Ubuntu more than half of the time. Canonical is wise to build on that success with its own distribution, but questions still loom about whether the company has the experience supporting enterprise users to craft a well-rounded OpenStack business.

The company does have some advantages. As The VAR Guy notes

"The company is emphasizing the automation and simplified deployment features of its OpenStack distribution, which are the fruit of its investment in homegrown cloud orchestration and management tools, such as Juju, which it has been developing for years, and the Ubuntu OpenStack Interoperability Lab, another longstanding initiative."

"Packaging [offerings] together allows the company to make its integrated OpenStack offering official, while also, perhaps, playing a more direct role in deciding just how organizations deploy OpenStack on Ubuntu."

Canonical has already added private cloud hosting to its business model. Through a private cloud offering called Your Cloud, for $15 per day per host, "Ubuntu offers all the software infrastructure, tools, and services you need to have your own cloud at your fingertips."

That offering includes 24/7 support from OpenStack experts. Additionally, Canonical is offering Ubuntu OpenStack training through a program called Jumpstart.

Clearly, Mark Shuttleworth and the gang foresee big growth for open cloud computing. With its OpenStack distribution, training and services, Canonical’s line of products has never been so diversified. Let’s see if the company can keep all of the balls in the air as enterprises turn to it to build out their cloud infrastructure.

DreamHost Takes its OpenStack IaaS Platform Out of Beta Tests

DreamHost has now taken its DreamCompute infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) OpenStack cloud platorm out of private beta testing. The company, with a platform that comes from the creators of Ceph, is set to compete with Amazon and other players in the cloud game.

"DreamCompute is a perfect solution for software developers looking to create development and test environments, full production deployments, and everything in-between," according to the company.

"Users can create unmanaged virtual servers on-demand with DreamCompute. All virtual servers benefit from full tenant isolation, support for IPv4 and IPv6, and users are given full administrator privileges," the announcement adds. "Each DreamCompute tenant receives a virtual OSI Layer 2 switch and is completely isolated at L2 from every other DreamCompute user."

DreamCompute was shown a couple of years ago at OpenStack Summit, where it was positioned as easily scalable and affordable. The beta testing of the platform has taken some time, but many observers will be interested in DreamCompute’s focus on working with the open Ceph storage framework. 

As noted by the company:

"User data is stored in a redundant Ceph cluster to deliver excellent performance, reliability, and scalability. OS images are also stored on Ceph and leverage copy-on-write technology for lightning fast boot times. Virtual machines on DreamCompute can be created and operational in as little as 40 seconds."

"We believe your cloud infrastructure shouldn’t exist in a ‘black box,’" said DreamCompute project lead, Justin Lund, "particularly in the world of open source. We made a conscious decision to provide users access to the OpenStack Compute, Networking, Image Service, Identity, and Block Storage APIs so that developers can use existing deployment tools to get their apps out there. We’ve gone to great lengths to document the very architecture of DreamCompute to be as transparent as possible with our users. We believe that when the cloud is open, everybody wins."
