Linux Kernel 4.10 Released -- Happy Anniversary!

Feb 21 12:42pm
Kernel 4.10 has the honor of being christened the Anniversary Edition by Linus Torvalds. I'm guessing this is because of the recent 25th anniversary of the release of Linux 0.01. Admittedly, it is a bit late for that (the anniversary was back in September); however, Linus had not named any of the recent releases for the occasion, opting instead for naming them after several deranged animals.

Open Source Networking: Disruptive Innovation Ready for Prime Time

Feb 21 10:42am
Innovations are much more interesting than inventions.  The “laser” is a classic invention and “FedEx” is a classic innovation.  Successful innovation disrupts entire industries and ecosystems as we’ve seen with Uber, AirBnB, and Amazon to name just a few.   The entire global telecommunication industry is at the dawn of a new era of innovation.  Innovations should be the rising tide in which everybody wins except what’s referred to as “laggards.”   Who are the laggards going to be in this new era of open communications?  You don’t want to be one.

Mesos Is to the Datacenter as the Kernel Is to Linux

Feb 21 10:32am
Necessity is the mother of invention. We needed our datacenters to be more automated, so we invented tools like Puppet and Chef. We needed easier application deployment, so we invented Docker. Of course it didn't stop there. Ben Hindman, the founder and chief architect of Mesosphere, co-created Apache Mesos. In his keynote at MesosCon Asia 2016, Hindman relates how failures and elasticity led to the development of Mesos.
