LINBIT Joins the Open Source OpenSDS Project



  • With 1.7 million downloads, LINBIT Represents the Largest Community of Open Source Mission Critical Workloads

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2018), May 1, 2018 – The OpenSDS Project, an open source community addressing software-defined storage integration challenges with the goal of driving enterprise adoption of open standards, today announced that LINBIT, a longtime leader of open source technologies, has joined OpenSDS. OpenSDS is a Linux Foundation hosted project.

    The OpenSDS Project is comprised of storage users and vendors, including Dell EMC, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Huawei, IBM, Western Digital, Vodafone, NTT Communications, Toyota ITC, Yahoo! Japan, and Oregon State University. The project seeks to collaborate with other upstream open source communities such as Cloud Native Computing Foundation and OpenStack, as well as industry organizations such as Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). LINBIT’s contributions to OpenSDS will offer seamless integration of DRBD remote data replication in OpenSDS.

    “Being responsible for mission critical applications, the LINBIT community has always defined the frontline of the open source momentum in the enterprise,” said Steven Tan, chair of the OpenSDS Technical Steering Committee and VP and CTO Cloud Storage Solutions at Huawei. “We welcome LINBIT to the OpenSDS Project, and look forward to offering its trusted Linux technologies to the OpenSDS community”

    “Cloud and container technologies present new challenges for efficient storage management, as do digital transformation and the increasing value of data assets,” said Philipp Reisner, CEO of LINBIT. “LINBIT is ideally positioned to address these challenges, building on its decades of experience with always-on, always-available technologies and leveraging the advanced development work that we are doing with erasure coding, highly available message queuing (HA-MQ), and geo-clustering via highly available network address lookup (HA-DNS).”

    In a related announcement, LINBIT launched the public beta release of LINSTOR, a major new addition to its SDS product portfolio for the growing containerized applications space. With container-native block storage, LINSTOR fills a significant gap in the market to provide data persistence for elastic applications with support for Kubernetes and OpenShift environments.

    The OpenSDS technical community hosts discussions on a dedicated mailing list: tech-discuss@opensds.io. For more information about OpenSDS, please email info@opensds.io.

Tmux Commands

screen and tmux

A comparison of the features (or more-so just a table of notes for accessing some of those features) for GNU screen and BSD-licensed tmux.

The formatting here is simple enough to understand (I would hope). ^ means ctrl+, so ^x is ctrl+x. M- means meta (generally left-alt or escape)+, so M-x is left-alt+x

It should be noted that this is no where near a full feature-set of either group. This - being a cheat-sheet - is just to point out the most very basic features to get you on the road.

Trust the developers and manpage writers more than me. This document is originally from 2009 when tmux was still new - since then both of these programs have had many updates and features added (not all of which have been dutifully noted here).
