Using KVM virtualization – Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) virtualization has largely replaced Xen as the default open source mechanism for creating and supporting virtual machines (VMs) on most Linux systems. Though the motivation for this change is primarily build and support related rather than technical, the reality is that many enterprise IT groups that are interested in virtualization will need to learn the administrative command-and-control tools that KVM uses. Similarly, IT shops with an existing investment in Xen virtualization that are moving to KVM will probably want to convert existing VMs to the formats that KVM supports whenever possible, rather than having to re-create them.
Create Linux and Windows images for OpenStack private clouds – This article proposes a new way to construct Linux® and Windows® images for private clouds built with the OpenStack cloud operating system. Current image-creation methods for OpenStack environments are cumbersome and time-consuming. The authors present an online, self-service method that makes image construction faster and easier for operators and end users of private clouds.

» Linuxaria – Everything about GNU/Linux and Open source SSH in 2 steps on Linux with Google Authenticator – Many security policies require you to change the port number of the SSH service to ensure greater security in a Linux system. Situation now used throughout the IT world and used mostly by users who have their own private server. Today I want to show you how to add another security layer without having to change the SSH port. To do this we’ll incorporate the famous Google Authenticator to our ssh service, in this way we’ll have a safe, two steps security, by entering our password and the combination given from the GA application. Let’s see how to do this…

Largest small system emulator – This entry weighs in at a magical 4043 bytes (8086 nibbles, 28,301 bits). It manages to implement most of the hardware in a 1980’s era IBM-PC using a few hundred fewer bits than the total number of transistors used to implement the original 8086 CPU. If you are using OS X, the included sc-ioccc.terminal configuration file will correctly display console applications that use ANSI graphics. [ via http://braindead.tumblr.com/post/72245783959 ]
