Getting started with GNOME Boxes virtualization

lun, 05/20/2019 - 09:00

I've been a fan of virtualization technology for many years, using many different products along the way. Virtualization has advantages for both the data center and the desktop: data centers use it to increase server hardware utilization, while desktop users use it for modeling, testing, and development work. One operating system running on top of a different one on the same hardware, all thanks to the concept of a virtual machine (VM).

Announcing Enarx for running sensitive workloads

ven, 05/17/2019 - 09:01

Running software is something that most of us do without thinking about it.  We run in "on premises"—our own machines—or we run it in the cloud - on somebody else's machines.  We don't always think about what those differences mean, or about what assumptions we're making about the securtiy of the data that's being processed, or even of the software that's doing that processing.  Specifically, when you run software (a "workload") on a system (a "host") on the cloud or on your own premises, there are lots and lots of layers. You often don't see those layers, but they're there.

Let's be real: Diversity and inclusion is a business issue

mar, 05/14/2019 - 09:00

Having spent most of my career in the technology industry, I've observed one fairly common approach to addressing issues: Identify a problem, isolate that problem's causes, develop a solution, implement that solution, then gather data to determine whether the solution has in fact solved the problem. If it hasn't, then rinse and repeat the process with updated data. If it has, then check that problem off the list and consider the problem "solved."

Don't test in production? Test in production!

lun, 05/13/2019 - 09:00

If you last updated your IT security standards five or more years ago, chances are they don't line up well with the realities of today's DevOps and site reliability engineering (SRE) practices. One particularly sticky topic is testing in production—and, thus, testing with production data—because DevOps and SRE blur the line between what is production and what is not; what is a test and what is not.

To clear up some of the confusion, we'll dig into these questions:

Suppose you wake up one day and decide to finally use that recipe video you keep watching all over social media. You get the ingredients, organize the necessary utensils, and start to follow the recipe steps. You cut this, cut that, then start heating the oven at the same time you put butter and onions in a pan. Then, your phone reminds you: you have a dinner appointment with your boss, and you're already late! You turn off everything and leave immediately, stopping the cooking process somewhere near the end.
