Ubuntu OpenStack released statistics last week which positioned the Linux software distribution as #1 overall in market share for cloud data center management built using OpenStack for network administration. Ubuntu claimed 55% of the total business investment in this sector in 2017 over rival enterprise Linux platform distributions from Red Hat OpenShift and SUSE Cloud 7 with MicroOS. In India, the software development outsourcing firm Tata Communications announced new support for a cloud Container-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform developed by their programming teams as a solution for:

Enterprise companies like telecoms, banking/finance, manufacturing, or ecommerce to adopt quickly in database modernization;
The production of custom-coded web/mobile apps with high performance cloud hosting support at the highest levels of user traffic;
Managing public/private/hybrid cloud network hardware for web publishing, mobile application, & SaaS product requirements.

Tata Communications continues a trend launched by Infosys and Wipro in building proprietary private cloud software solutions that can be used by outsourcing teams in supporting many enterprise corporations in operations simultaneously. Integrator companies can install Red Hat OpenShift, Ubuntu OpenStack, SUSE Cloud 7, CoreOS, or RancherOS with Docker virtualization to manage complex solutions for enterprise clients using open source software tools. Other major announcements this week included new VMware, IBM, & AWS collaboration in cloud platform solutions; Microsoft establishing new SSD/BMC standards for hardware manufacturers & data centers (Project Denali/Project Cerberus); and continued fall-out from insiders over Google's acquisition of the data science company Kaggle, including their expert programming staff, archives of research data, & millions of AI/ML/DL platform customers. Apache Hadoop adoption is still growing quickly as a solution for "big data" requirements, including IoT, ecommerce, self-driving cars, cloud network analytics, & search technology.

Varnish Cache: Accelerated HTTP(S) Cache Control with Hitch TLS & VMSE Data Services

Varnish Cache: Accelerated HTTP(S) Cache Control with Hitch TLS & VMSE Data Services

Varnish HTTP Cache Control with Improved SSL/TLS Management for Web Servers

Varnish Cache is used by over 2.5 million websites in production in 2018, including by some of the largest IT & media corporations like Twitter, NYT, Wikipedia, Guardian.uk, Facebook, & Vimeo. Varnish Cache is a reverse-proxy HTTP cloud load balancing software that can speed up website content delivery to browsers through page load request processing on the same hardware by 300 to 1000 times. Varnish Cache accomplishes these web server performance improvements through better repeat request file caching on network I/O transfers, where Hitch can be used for more efficient encryption connection management & control at scale for web servers running under https with SSL/TLS certificates. Varnish Cache supports Apache & NGINX web servers and installs on either Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, RHEL, & CentOS) or FreeBSD to operate. Drupal, WordPress, Magento, and other CMS website publishers can directly integrate Varnish Cache with their web page content management system and secure better performance with support for web traffic on hardware in the ongoing maintenance of cloud apps for business, government, or media organizations. Varnish Cache has open source versions, cloud licensed, and enterprise licensed products available depending on the web hosting traffic volume or data center size.
