You may know that Docker is a lightweight virtualization solution for running multiple virtual units (containers) simultaneously on a single control host. Containers are isolated with kernel control groups (cgroups) and kernel namespaces. We have had Docker as an integral part of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for some time already, so let me share some …

Lightweight virtualization is a hot topic these days. Also called “operating system-level virtualization,” it allows you to run multiple applications or systems on one host without a hypervisor. The advantages are obvious: not having a hypervisor, the layer between the host hardware and the operating system and its applications, is eliminated, allowing a much more …

This entry is part 10 of 11 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. As a result, OS’s have learned to handle bad sectors by avoiding them, but growing the current, running disk just seems eerie to me every time I want to do it. Apparently I’m old.

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? …

There’s a new breakthrough technology available as a Technology Preview in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack3 (SP3). It’s called “virtio-blk-data-plane”—and you’ve probably never heard of it. But it deserves a fanfare because it gives KVM the ability to handle unprecedented storage I/O rates more than 50% higher than its competition. This is important …

Linux is the undisputed operating system of choice for traditional HPC workloads or “number crunching”. This is again proven by the most current list of the top500 supercomputers, which has just been published yesterday during the Supercomputing Conference 2012 in Salt Lake City. An impressive 93,8% of all supercomputers listed here is running Linux. But …
