Most IoT devices run on Arm-based processors. 71.8% of these processors use Linux as their operating system (OS).
The Linux Kernel 5.4 is nearly complete! It is expected to debut as stable by the end of November. It will mark the last major stable kernel release of 2019.
During the second quarter of 2019, KernelCare became officially validated and available for customers of VMware Cloud™ on Amazon Web Services (AWS). VMware Cloud is VMware’s enterprise virtualization suite, built especially for Amazon’s AWS cloud infrastructure. VMware Cloud on AWS is the natural choice for mission-critical, always-on application services, offering distributed load balancing, dynamic resource allocation, and easy management. Organizations use services like VMware Cloud on AWS to deploy hybrid cloud service stacks and data centres. Its familiar vSphere operating environment makes it easy to migrate mission-critical services and applications.
Calling all Europe-based Embedded Linux users! On October 28–30, at the Convention Center in Lyon, France will host the Embedded Linux Conference (ELC) Europe 2019. ELC is a premier vendor-neutral tech conference, where experts and developers working on embedded Linux and industrial IoT products gather for education and collaboration. This is a packed, innovation-focussed event. If you’re attending, we figured you might need some guidance. Here are five tips and tricks:
The first half of 2019 has been a very exciting time at KernelCare. We’ve picked up some major enterprise customers, including Dell and Endurance. Along the way, there have been a multitude of other milestones.
The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has ushered in a whole new era of cybersecurity fears. In 2018, there were an estimated 10-billion IoT devices. By 2025, this will have increased by more than sixfold. The IoT has already suffered a slew of attacks, and attacks have increased up to 300% in 2019. Many of these were Linux Kernel-focussed: Mirai, SegmentSmack, SACK Panic, SACK Slowness, and more.
Electrical engineering is a field packed with acronyms. “Advanced RISC Machine” is an older name for the modern-day ARM processor, which represents the leading form of RISC architecture. “RISC” stands for reduced instruction set computer, and refers to a type of microprocessor architecture that optimizes performance by limiting the number of cycles per instruction within its CPU programs.
