Monthly Snap June


June kept everyone busy with and excited about the Open Source Data Conference in Berlin. Eleven days before OSDC Keya started the „OSDC 2018 Countdown“. Second week of June the NETWAYS headquarter in Nuremberg was quite quiet. Everyone flew off to Berlin. Everyone? Well, not entirely… One small group of NETWAY-ers kept the NETWAYS flag flying in Nuremberg. Thankfully they had sent a great conference reporter out: Every evening Dirk summed up what had happened in „The Future of Open Source Data Center Solutions – OSDC 2018 – Day 1“ and „… 2“. He also wrote about the „Open Source Camp Issue #1“ . OSCamp will give Open Source projects a platform to present themselves to the Community. This year it started with Foreman and Graylog.
Berlin Events are over for this year, but other great events cast their shadows ahead: „Now is the time to register“ for the upcoming Open Source Monitoring Conference. OSMC takes place in Nuremberg, November 5 to 8.
There is this German saying: „Alles neu macht der Mai“ – for NETWAYS it was June: For OSMC we have created new presentations formats, learn more in „OSMC 2018: Choose what suits you!” And: Julia is new. She just started this month as Marketing Manager and introduced herself in our blogseries „NETWAYS stellt sich vor“. Also new: We have published a „Ceph Training “, as Tim is happy to announce.
At times of DSVGO for Christoph it’s time to reconsider data protection of monitoring servers. In „Einfaches verschlüsseltes Backup“ he explains how one can use GPG to encrypt an icinga2 backup. Nicole shared her thoughts on the „Microsoft and GitHub – merge conflict?“ and recommends to get your own GitLab instance, whereas Michael explains „Continuous Integration with Golang and GitLab“. „Wie überwache ich eine Cluster-Applikation in Icinga 2?“, asked Daniel being at a customer – solving the problem with a little help from his friends. Eric explains „Filter for Multiple Group Memberships in SQL“, that will become even more powerful with the upcoming Icinga Web 2 release. In „Fresh from the shelfDavid reports about command-lines with Ranger, Progress and fzf, and Dirk inspired the Open Source Community about „Contributing as a Non-Developer“. One month, so much going on… Stay tuned!

OSBConf 2017 – It´s been great!

Bereits zum 9. fand in diesem Jahr die Open Source Backup Conference in Köln statt. Die rund 50 Teilnehmer scheuten keine Mühen und reisten aus Dänemark, Deutschland, Polen, Österreich, Schweiz, Spanien und den USA an, um sich über alles Neue zum Thema Open Source Backup zu informieren.
Mit dabei waren z. B. Vorträge renommierter Referenten zu verschiedenen Softwaretools im Bereich Open Source Backup Lösungen geben. Unter anderem sind dieses Jahr Didac Oliveira (Brain Updaters, SSL), Dr. Stefan Vollmar (Max Planck Institut) und Josef Weingand (IBM) dabei. Außerdem gab es traditionsgemäß Informationen zum Bareos Release, diesmal 17.2. Neben den Talks bot sich den Teilnehmern außerdem die Möglichkeit, einen von drei Intensiv Workshops zu den Themen Puppet for Bareos, Bareos Introduction und Scripting Bareos zu besuchen.
Für die rauchenden Köpfe nach dem ersten anstrengenden Workshoptag kam die wohltuende Entspannung in Form der Abendveranstaltung im Belgischen Viertel, genauer gesagt im Belgischen Hof ganz gelegen! Hier wurde bis nach Mitternacht geschlemmt und gequasselt, was das Zeug hält. Und wer sich das alles nicht vorstellen kann, der kann in Kürze die komplette Konferenz unter www.osbconf.org noch einmal Revue passieren lassen.
