As research publications increasingly become digital, it's essential to create a findable and unchanging electronic scholarly record. Researchers are probably familiar with the digital object identifier (DOI), which in URL form provides a persistent link to articles (and more). In addition, many libraries and publishers provide redundant archiving to ensure scholarship is preserved over the long term; however, making sure other types of links in articles work and that a linked webpage represents what the author saw when it was cited is also important. read more

If you're connected to a VPN, you need a killswitch. No, it's not as metal as it sounds. It's just a mechanism that stops your Internet connection when you're disconnected from the VPN. It protects you from inadvertently leaking sensitive information onto the Internet when the VPN connection drops.
We continue our series with a look at chapters 4 and 5, which provide a comprehensive description of the various open source NFV projects integrated by OPNFV and the carrier grade features contributed back to these upstream projects by the community.
Canonical recently partnered with Samsung to bring its Ubuntu Linux operating system to the Samsung ARTIK 5 and 7 family of smart IoT (Internet of Things) modules used in a wide-range of appliances.
SUSE and Microsoft have the longest running partnership between Linux and Windows. Since those early days, SUSE continued to work with Microsoft to run Linux on Windows Server with Microsoft's Hyper-V virtual machine (VM). That work would lead directly to Azure's ability to run Linux distributions. Currently, Linux VMs make up more than a third of the images running on Azure.

When our intrepid user research team goes into the field and observes Firefox users in the wild, they find that users have all sorts of creative solutions to do things...
SUSE makes creating customized operating system images easier than ever with SUSE Studio Express. When SUSE first introduced SUSE Studio in 2010, it was a radical change. You could build your own Linux distribution without being a Linux expert. Today, we use custom Linux images inside containers, virtual machines (VM), and every cloud worth its name every day.
It's also in rapid development. Since the fork that gave it birth, Nextcloud has evolved beyond being merely a Dropbox drop in. "In a way, it's like the first true Office 365 killer," is how Karlitschek put it.
In my last few articles, I've looked at a number of ways machine learning can help make predictions. The basic idea is that you create a model using existing data and then ask that model to predict an outcome based on new data.
In a perfect world, all of the data you need would be cleanly presented in an open and well-documented format that you could easily download and use for whatever purpose you need. In the real world, data is messy, rarely packaged how you need it, and often out-of-date. ? read more
