Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Benchmarks

Phoronix - Thu, 2018-03-22 15:10
Last week on Pi Day marked the release of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with a slightly higher clocked Cortex-A53 processors, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi, faster Ethernet, and other minor enhancements over its predecessor. I've been spending the past few days putting the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ through its paces the past few days with an array of benchmarks while comparing the performance to other ARM SBCs as well as a few lower-end Intel x86 systems too. Here is all you need to know about the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ performance.

Corporate manuals rule

Reddit - Thu, 2018-03-22 14:22

I will just say it here, ALL HAIL THE USER MANUAL. Nothing beats corporate manuals Hence my preference for Oracle Linux. Say what you want, I call a proper manual a feature. Since I haven't had time to go through many distributions and releases (15 years with linux, never cared about testing distros, used only 4 in my life so far), which distribution has the best downloadable clean readable instruction book? My favorite is still a paper manual I had for my Suse 5.× or so, from 2000 or something?

Server for RedHat

Reddit - Thu, 2018-03-22 14:06

Hey, I'm looking at buying RedHat and putting it on a server to run locally at home. Is there any build like a PowerEdge that anyone can recommend? I ideally want it to be small and powerful enough not to be noticeably slow. Any ideas, cheap buying options?

Cloud.gov Open-Source Platform Speeds Development, Requirements Process

TuxMachines - Thu, 2018-03-22 13:45

IT development in the federal government has earned its reputation for being a painfully slow process but Cloud.gov, the government’s cloud application platform, is helping to change that by standardizing the application lifecycle and helping to document it every step of the way.

The need to document the entire stack of an IT solution in the federal government can run up to 1,000 pages, and that process requires in depth knowledge of thousands of pages of regulations, laws and risk management policies.

Typically, federal agencies have compliance experts who must review this documentation and grant approval or request changes. This can take six to 14 months to get authority to operate (ATO), and then you still need to deploy the application.
