We’re also celebrating 10 years of Ubuntu, looking at alternatives to the Raspberry Pi and coding in GIMP. We look at OwnCloud 7, start with Docker v1.0 and continue to advance our Nginx server.

Linux Foundation Announces Major Network Functions Virtualization Project

Linux Slashdot - Tue, 30/09/2014 - 19:35
Andy Updegrove writes: The Linux Foundation this morning announced the latest addition to its family of major hosted open source initiatives: the Open Platform for NFV Project (OPNFV). Its mission is to develop and maintain a carrier-grade, integrated, open source reference platform for the telecom industry. Importantly, the thirty-eight founding members include not only cloud and service infrastructure vendors, but telecom service providers, developers and end users as well. The announcement of OPNFV highlights three of the most significant trends in IT: virtualization (the NFV part of the name refers to network function virtualization), moving software and services to the cloud, and collaboratively developing complex open source platforms in order to accelerate deployment of new business models while enabling interoperability across a wide range of products and services. The project is also significant for reflecting a growing recognition that open source projects need to incorporate open standards planning into their work programs from the beginning, rather than as an afterthought.
