SIDUS (Single-Instance Distributing Universal System) was developed at
Centre Blaise Pascal (Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon,
Lyon, France), where one administrator alone is in charge of 180 stations.
Emmanuel Quemener started SIDUS in February 2010, and he significantly
cut his workload for administering this park of stations.
SIDUS is now in use at the supercomputing centre PSM more>>
In a previous article, I discussed Apache Tomcat, which is the ideal way to run
Java applications from your server. I explained that you can run those
apps from Tomcat’s default 8080 port, or you can configure Tomcat to use
port 80. But, what if you want to run a traditional Web server
Java apps on port 80? The answer is to run a reverse proxy.
Although many people are excited about the hardware-hacking possibilities
with the Raspberry Pi, one of the things that interests me most is
the fact that it is essentially a small low-power Linux server I can
use to replace other Linux servers I already have around the house. more>>
This year’s Reader’s Choice issue was truly fun to put together. No,
not just because you do all the work (voting), but because it’s great
to get a feel for what our community is buzzing about. Based on your
feedback, we’ve given you all the data again this
year, with percentages and rankings, plus we tried to include as many
of your less-popular responses as possible. more>>
With the introduction of the solid-state Flash drive, performance
came to the forefront for data storage technologies. Prior to that,
software developers and server administrators needed to devise methods
for which they could increase I/O throughput to storage, most of which
resulted in low capacity caching to random access memory (RAM)
or a RAM drive. more>>
If you’re anything like me (and don’t you want to be?), you probably have more
than one Linux or UNIX machine that you use on a regular basis. Perhaps
you’ve got a laptop and a desktop. Or, maybe you’ve got a few servers on which
shell accounts. more>>
Here at Linux Journal, we love system administrators.
because many of us are system administrators, but more than that, we all
realize just how important sys more>>
