Is CentOS or Ubuntu a more secure OS for hosting virtual machines on the cloud?

Reddit - Wed, 2016-10-12 13:59

I'm almost done finishing an app for a side-project, and soon be deploying it in cloud. I want to know that if I get myself a virtual private server (VPS), what OS should ideally be more secure?

I'm presently running Ubuntu Desktop, so I'm more aware with the apt packaging system. However, I'm not much aware of the server/admin side of things. There was a time earlier when the RHEL based system was a standard, but of late, Ubuntu has also started taking off.

The only lacking I see in Ubuntu is lack of selinux, but again, is it more of a help or hindrance in live production environments? All in all, do you see Ubuntu as secure an OS on servers as the CentOS/RHEL line?

Installing NVIDIA Drivers All Major Linux Distributions

LXer - Wed, 2016-10-12 13:34
NVIDA supports Linux with its proprietary drivers nearly as well as it does Windows. That said, it's no secret that NVIDIA has long been the go-to choice for gaming on Linux. Unfortunately, even though the drivers support Linux well, installing them can become more complicated when dealing with different distributions. In many cases, the process is very simple but not well documented. In others, it's a bit tougher, but there is no reason that you can't get the latest NVIDIA drivers for your graphics card working on most major distributions.
