Troy Hunt put together a piece outlining some more subdued thoughts on the Cloudflare security bug. It certainly doesn’t underplay the severity, but also avoids sensationalism. It’s a great piece to put the security concerns into perspective, and actually looks at the risk it truly poses.
This very long article over at Tom’s Hardware is the most in-depth look at the new Intel/Micron storage media that I’ve seen. Well worth reading! Memory and storage collide with Intel and Micron’s new, much-anticipated 3D XPoint technology, but the road has been long and winding. This is a comprehensive guide to its history, its performance, […]
Tim Miller isn’t a “storage guy” but he wrote a pair of “Linux Interlude” posts focusing on filesystem layouts, LVM, and Docker that are well worth reading. He starts with this bit about making a future-proof Linux filesystem layout in A Brief Linux Interlude – Partitions, Logical Volumes, and Layouts: To avoid those calamities with the default filesystem […]
Tom and I were briefed by Aporeto about Trireme as well. It’s a great approach to transient networking, which is exactly what happens in active container environments. Here’s Drew’s take on the announcement… A new open source project called Trireme aims to simplify security for containers and Kubernetes. The software, developed by the startup Aporeto, […]
The Raspberry Pi is truly a wondrous little SoC. Even with its limited CPU power, single USB port for I/O, and arguably unappetizing namesake, it’s inspired a rash of creativity that continues four years after its initial debut. They’ve been used to make photogrammetry-based 3D scanners, inefficient Beowulf clusters, and old school arcades. So why not make some custom […]
One of my “power tools” for Linux is screen, a do-it-all terminal interface. I use it constantly, keeping my session open as I log in and out and travel from place to place. So I was glad to see Eric Wright’s tutorial on the capabilities of this Swiss Army Command! For fans of RDP on […]
