Getting started with Linux-VServer

  •; By Sukrit Dhandhania (Posted by dcparris on Jun 23, 2006 3:32 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
BSD users can improve system security with that operating system's jail mechanism, which creates a partition of resources, thereby creating a logical barrier between services running inside different such jails. Under Linux, an application called Linux-VServer implements pretty much the same functionality. It partitions a system's resources -- namely CPU, memory, hard disk, and network -- so that processes inside of the partitions are limited to their context, which makes denial of service attacks less likely to succeed. This is one reason why many hosting companies use virtual servers.

Microsoft: We'll Support Our Product, Because IBM Won't. What?

  • Email Battles; By BJ Gillette (Posted by zanek on Jun 22, 2006 7:23 PM EDT)
If you were IBM what would you do? Microsoft programmers built a piece of code to allow Microsoft email software to interoperate with IBM's Domino/Lotus combo. When the code doesn't work, IBM advises users to talk to the folks who wrote the broken code, because, after all, it's Microsoft's code. Microsoft triumphantly proclaims that, unlike IBM, it will minister to people who can't make its code work, and by the way, this proves the value of its product. Huh? Most of us would take advantage of the silliness of Microsoft's position. IBM, however, hit the mattresses.
