With the variety of Music creation tools out there, it feels like you need something to bridge that gap... a launchpad for all your things of music. Enter the Minim #freaking   #amazing   #iwant

Reminder to all customers and users of Ubuntu: As of yesterday, Ubuntu 14.10 is EOL, and will no longer receive security updates.

Any customers still running 14.10 should strongly be urged to upgrade to 15.04 (Vivid). Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at:

Real, reproducible benchmarks of real workloads on public clouds... check.

With public infrastructure services now mainstream, the real question isn't if you should be using the cloud, it's which cloud, and for which workloads. A lot of that is policy - contracts, security, jurisdictions. But a lot of it is pure engineering economics - how much bang are you going to get for your buck on each cloud.

cloud-benchmarking.org is a public repository of reproducible benchmarks for popular workloads. It's unusual in that the workloads are defined as usable juju charms; that means you can spin them up from scratch at scale yourself, you can trust that the results will reflect your actual usage, and there are no little gotchas encoded in special images that are hand-tuned and unrealistic. You genuinely can spin up the same topology of services at scale on any cloud you might care about, and verify the results yourself. Then you can share your results and add to the pool of public knowledge about real workload performance across the public infrastructure services.

Awesome, useful work.

Impressive display of workload benchmarking by the devx team in Juju. Drawing comparisons between workload performance can help you make better decisions about your IAAS provider.

I'll be keeping my eye on cloud benchmarks as things progress. #cloudbenchmarks   #benchmarks   #workloads   #juju  
 
See how Cassandra stacks up on GCE and AWS. All this possible by using Juju! Bringing repeatable benchmarking to cloud platforms.

Kubernetes 1.0 launch is today! If you're curious about how to get started, we've bundled everything up for your deployment pleasure.

juju deploy happiness
 
The +Kubernetes project is celebrating version 1.0 release today.  You can deploy a Kubernetes cluster with +juju today and try it out.
A big congratulations to the Kubernetes project and community on releasing version 1.0 to the public! Kubernetes (a.k.a. k8s) is an open source system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts called a cluster.  Over the past six months we’ve had a small team of “container people” working to make sure that we could deliver [...]

Thanks for the repost and endorsement +Guido Stepken 

I'm unsure of how to load the FS modules at present, but i'll be in #snappy  asking around on how to load kern mods if i require them :) I imagine its just a snappy install away with the correct sec profile.

So far I've gotten the Swarm setup going in full tilt leveraging the existing awesome work by hypriot and mattw. I've got some open dialogue with the LXD team about getting that up and running. 

Cheers!
 
Build your own UBUNTU elastic cloud!

Canonical® is doing an excellent job building up huge clouds for enterprises around the globe, offering 24/7/365,25 service, maintenance, updates, "hands on" contracts, building new software, e.g. LXD, JUJU, ...

And they, indeed, did document everything, so that you are able to build your own cloud from cheap $35 Raspberry Pi 2 bricks: Quad core, 1 GByte RAM, 100 MBit. Everything is there and - "ultra cheap"!

My recommendation: Use SanDisk SDSDQXL-032G-GA4A MicroSD exclusively. Fast, reliable, 10 years warranty. With F2FS filesystem on work partition!!! Much faster at sequential writes. Use IPFS, CSYNC2, XtreemFS or SeaweedFS as clustering filesystem. Cloud software: FREEHOLD: https://youtu.be/gXYrb3ChSLs

With NginX or OpenRESTY, you can easily serve 6500 dynamic web pages per second: https://www.jeremymorgan.com/blog/programming/raspberry-pi-web-server-comparison/

Have fun!
The name "Clementine Box" is a bit of a namegrab. Let me lead with that. This is in no way affiliated with an official Canonical project, just something I'm doing in my spare time to experiment with mixing LXD and Docker services to prove that building a container based cloud in something that ...

Who's ready for the #kubernetes 1.0 launch? I know #juju is - Here's a breakdown as a consumer and a contributor. Deploy to any public or private cloud: GCE, AWS, Joyent, HP Public Cloud - if you're using Ubuntu MAAS you can even deploy directly to metal.

Deploy happy

Ubuntu, the operating system at scale in the cloud, on super computers, in your  phone and tablet, the desktop and laptops we work on every day, and on embedded devices from drones to credit card sized embedded systems.

Sure sounds like we're getting mighty close to a Convergent world. #oneworld   #oneubuntu   #weexistthereforeweare

According to Wikipedia, Tianhe-2 runs Kylin Linux, which is different from Ubuntu Kylin. Whether the information in the article is actually true or not, I can't say. Just thought it was worth mentioning.
