Olimex is a Bulgarian company known for its innovative hobbyist
products. It has a wide array of microcontroller-based products, ranging
from the small Arduino clones to the very able system that has the Allwinner
A13 microcontroller as its brain. In this article, I describe
how you can create a working Linux system for the Olinuxino A13 and Olinuxino
A13Micro from scratch.
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.
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>>

Rather than installing a server, such as a web server, directly onto your main computer, why not install it in a VM? This sort of setup has a few advantages of security and convenience. These days, spreading resources out into the cloud is the in-thing, but consolidation is often underexploited. Hosting a server in a virtualizer such as VirtualBox is often a good approach for casual or occasional server needs on a home network.
I’m a big fan of the Nagios network monitoring system and rely on it to tell me if something goes wrong with the systems for which I am responsible. I have made a large investment in time configuring Nagios to monitor exactly what I am interested in, and this effort would be wasted if Nagios detected a problem, but failed to communicate that problem to me. more>>
As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
