Keeping pace with multiple architectures (Part 1)

The open source community and the IT industry as a whole continue to discuss how they can use different hardware architectures to solve hard computational problems and address specific workloads. Customers value choice in their technology implementations, and choice is a key benefit of open source solutions. To best meet these needs, the software ecosystem has to

We’re changing up our marketing approach. And it involves comic books.

We’re adopting a new marketing mantra for Red Hat Enterprise Linux: Listen. Learn. Build. Which probably doesn’t seem all that revolutionary. That’s pretty much the mantra of open source. But compare that to how tech marketing usually happens.

There’s a lot of building–assets and advertisements and the whole nine yards. But the listening and learning parts usually happen afterwards, if at all.

So we’re making a conscious effort to explicitly apply the principles of open source to the way that we market our flagship open source technology. We’re starting with the listening part.

And who exactly are we listening to? You.

And what exactly are we listening to you talk about? Your OS adventures.

And what exactly do we mean by “OS adventures”?–

–Actually, here’s a better idea. Instead of telling you what we’re doing and why, let’s show you…

MiFID ii, RTS 25 and time synchronisation in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization

While there is a lot more than just the “Regulatory Technical Standard 25”, abbreviated to RTS 25 from now on, in the EU’s MiFID II regulations, the focus of this blog is all around RTS 25 and achieving compliance with the time synchronisation requirements this entails.

At a high level, the goal of MiFID ii is

Discovery and Affinity

Questions related to DNS and service discovery regularly come up during deployments of Identity Management (IdM) in Red Hat Enterprise Linux in a trust configuration with Active Directory. This blog article will shed some light of this aspect of the integration.

We will start with a description of the environment. Let us say that the Active Directory  environment consist of
