This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series LJDT - Linux Just Does That

Have you ever wanted to resize a disk in a VM and wondered how insanely painful that would be? After all, from the old days of platter-based spinning drives in computers (sorry to those of you still living in those days), before SANs with resizable LUNs, file-backed VMs, and other marvels of recent times, disks didn’t magically resize themselves unless it was to get smaller because they were breaking/broken.

I must say that I respectfully disagree with VMware’s CEO, Pat Gelsinger on whether OpenStack will catch on in the enterprise. While he believes it won’t get traction in the near future, I believe quite the contrary and I’ll try to outline a few of the reasons. First and foremost, OpenStack is moving rapidly to …

Reads: 454

When one thinks of market leaders in a space, it often comes down to economics or units shipped. While important, it does not always tell the full story. Market leadership can (and in my opinion should) be defined in terms of thought leadership and actions.  This definitely should be the case in the Linux space …

Reads: 1086

When it comes to change, most IT shops and OEMs would prefer not to make a jump to a recent OS update until they absolutely must. I understand, I’ve been there and done that. Understanding the aversion, I am still encouraging every partner (end user, IHV or OEM) to make the jump to SLES 11 SP3. Why? …

As I look around and observe everyday life, it is amazing just how prevalent SUSE Linux is in the background fabric of critical infrastructure.  Whether it is something as simple as going to the store, visiting your doctor, flying on a plane or making a transaction in your 401k, it is extremely likely that SUSE  …
