What’s New in OpenShift 3.5 – Cluster Management

What’s New in OpenShift 3.5 – Cluster Management

One of the things I hear while visiting customers is how much they love the fact we continue to release new software features in OpenShift at the pace of one release every quarter. OpenShift Container Platform 3.5 is now our 6th “minor” release of OpenShift with countless errata releases (on average about every 3 weeks) since 2015. What you might have not noticed, is the fact all our OpenShift and RHEL engineers are pulling double duty during releases. While we were late up at night getting OpenShift 3.5 ready to release, they were also finishing up Kubernetes 1.6. That pace of innovation and passion is only possible by working in an open community.

Jupyter on OpenShift Part 2: Using Jupyter Project Images

The quickest way to run a Jupyter Notebook instance in a containerised environment such as OpenShift, is to use the Docker-formatted images provided by the Jupyter Project developers. Unfortunately the Jupyter Project images do not run out of the box with the typical default configuration of an OpenShift cluster.

In this second post of this series about running Jupyter Notebooks on OpenShift, I am going to detail the steps required in order to run the Jupyter Notebook software on OpenShift.

Jupyter on OpenShift: Using OpenShift for Data Analytics

Jupyter on OpenShift: Using OpenShift for Data Analytics

It is a commonly used catch phrase to say how ‘Software is Eating The World’ and how all companies are now software companies. It isn’t just the software that is important though, it is the data which is being generated by these systems. At the extreme end of the spectrum, companies can generate or collect quite massive data sets, and this is often referred to as the realm of ‘Big Data’.

No matter how much data you have, it is of no value if you don’t have a way to analyse the data and visualise the results in a meaningful way that you can act upon.

Using Clojure on OpenShift

Using Clojure on OpenShift

I’ve been a Lisp guy since undergraduate days, and in the JVM phase of my career that has meant Clojure. Though it’s been many years since I coded as a day job, Clojure is my go-to for playing around to see how things work. This often makes for an extra bit of fun since there isn’t always a previously-blazed path for Clojure.
