Microsoft is developing an iteration of its collaboration tool, Teams, for Linux systems after high demand from users, but hasn’t provided a release date.
The company confirmed on a user feedback forum last week that it’s actively working on a Teams client, and that more information would be divulged soon. Users have previously been forced to use an in-browser version of Teams on Linux systems, which suffers from limitations in functionality and user experience (UX).
Last year, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) began the process of performing and open sourcing third-party security audits for its projects in order to improve the overall security of our ecosystem. The idea was to start with a handful of projects and gather feedback from the CNCF community as to whether or not this pilot program was useful. The first projects to undergo this process were CoreDNS, Envoy and Prometheus. These first public audits identified security issues from general weaknesses to critical vulnerabilities. With these results, project maintainers for CoreDNS, Envoy and Prometheus have been able to address the identified vulnerabilities and add documentation to help users.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 14, 2019 – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, announced today that enrollment is now open for the new DevOps and SRE Fundamentals – Implementing Continuous Delivery eLearning course. The course will help an organization be more agile, deliver features rapidly, while at the same time being able to achieve non-functional requirements such as availability, reliability, scalability, security, etc.
According to Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, “The rise of cloud native computing and site reliability engineering are changing the way applications are built, tested, and deployed. The past few years have seen a shift towards having Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) on staff instead of just plain old sysadmins; building familiarity with SRE principles and continuous delivery open source projects are an excellent career investment.”
Academy Software Foundation Announces Amazon Web Services as a New Premier Member

SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 1 further refines the world’s first multimodal OS enabling enterprises to continually innovate, compete and grow
SHANGHAI, China (Open Source Summit 2019)
As businesses are transforming their IT landscapes to support present and future demands, SUSE® is providing the foundation for both their traditional and growing containerized workloads with the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 1.
Enterprises need the capability to design, deploy and run cloud-native, microservices-based applications as part of a DevOps approach. They must be able to deliver modern containerized applications with orchestration tools such as Kubernetes that enable secure and agile development and deployment from the edge to on-premise to hybrid to multi-cloud environments. At the same time, traditional systems are widely used to host mission-critical workloads like databases and ERP systems. Today’s enterprises have multimodal IT infrastructures that run multimodal workloads, and SUSE Linux Enterprise is a bridge between traditional and cloud – the world’s first multimodal operating system that enables enterprises to continually innovate, compete and grow.
On June 10, 2014, the official Google Cloud Platform blog had a post from Eric Brewer, VP Infrastructure and Google Fellow. This unassuming post talked about Google’s investment in containers such as support for Docker in Compute Engine VMs and the release of a container resource monitoring tool called cVisor.
