Linux Wife, Happy Life. | LINUX Unplugged 92

Plus hints on how Debian PPAs might work, the world’s first $9 Linux rig & much more!

Ubuntu jumps into Internet of Things with Acer, GE, and Microsoft

That wasn’t a typo. Canonical and Microsoft, which were already working together on bringing Canonical’s Juju DevOps tools to Windows and bringing Windows Server to OpenStack, are working with DataArt on an IoT industrial predictive maintenance solution. It will combine the three companies’ IoT, cloud, big data, machine learning, and Docker efforts. To integrate all of this they’ll be using “Snappy” Ubuntu apps, DeviceHive, and Juju Charms. Microsoft will also use an Azure service to manage and capture machine data.
