Leveraging Kernel Module Management Operator for hardware accelerator enablement

Tue, 05/07/2024 - 08:00
Being a cluster administrator can come with its own challenges, especially with environments that carry out-of-tree (OOT) cluster modules. Upgrading device plug-ins or different kernel versions can be prone to errors when doing so one-by-one. This is where the Kernel Module Management Operator (KMM) comes in, allowing admins to build, sign, and deploy multiple kernel versions for any kernel module.KMM is designed to accommodate multiple kernel versions at once for any kernel module. Using this operator can also leverage the hardware acceleration capabilities of Intel Center GPU Flex, allowing

Improving the Developer Experience with Testcontainers and OpenShift

Tue, 03/19/2024 - 08:00
Reducing developers' cognitive load is key to increasing their productivity. Even still, 76% of organizations say cognitive load on developers is so high that it is a source of low productivity. In response, organizations are establishing platform engineering teams to improve the developer experience while ensuring governance, security and control, with Gartner anticipating 80% of companies forming these groups by 2026. Developers' quest for shorter-feedback cycles drives the adoption of solutions that allow them to get a fast feedback cycle, in the inner loop of development, often even before

How the telco ecosystem can make a more meaningful, measurable impact on sustainability

Mon, 02/26/2024 - 08:00
It would be great if we could flip a switch on the networks that currently consume about 3% of the world's power and emit roughly 2% of the world's greenhouse gasses to make them more sustainable. And I’m sure any telecommunications service provider would want to reduce their network operating costs by being more energy efficient. But achieving sustainability goals is a complex and layered problem, and one that requires an entire ecosystem to work together to reduce the telecommunication industry’s carbon dioxide footprint. Many service providers are looking to advanced data analytics powe

How private 5G can unlock the promise of industrial AI

Mon, 02/26/2024 - 08:00
The industrial ecosystem is advancing at an incredible pace – rapid technology development and adoption cycles present massive opportunities for greater operational efficiency and productivity. But to pull this off, manufacturers need advanced connectivity that neither on-site cabling or ethernet can provide. Enter private 5G. Private 5G systems offer unified network function and application connectivity closer to end users, thanks to virtualized and cloud-native radio access networks (RAN) and 5G core (5GC) implementations linked by open standards-based interfaces. Private 5G can deliver th
