Canonical’s recipe for High Performance Computing

HPC HPC

In essence, High Performance Computing (HPC) is quite simple. Speed and scale. In practice, the concept is quite complex and hard to achieve. It is not dissimilar to what happens when you go from a regular car to a supercar or a hypercar – the challenges and problems you encounter at 100 km/h are vastly ...

High Performance Computing – It’s all about the bottleneck

HPC Article

The term High Performance Computing, HPC, evokes a lot of powerful emotions whenever mentioned. Even people who do not necessarily have vocational knowledge of hardware and software will have an inkling of understanding of what it’s all about; HPC solves problems at speed and scale that cannot be achieved with standard, traditional comput ...

We wish you RISC-V holidays!

HPC Article

There are three types of computer users: the end user, the system administrator, and the involuntary system administrator. As it happens, everyone has found themselves in the last group at some point or another; you sit down to perform a task relevant to your needs or duties, but suddenly the machine does not work as ...

The winter is coming, and so is the Ubuntu Summit

Ubuntu Community

What do drones, elementary particles, air hockey, and the film industry have in common? At first glance, not much. But after giving it some thought, you may realize that, in fact, they do share a rather similar theme. Two words: Ubuntu Summit. The second installment in the reboot series of the Ubuntu Summit will take ...

What happens in the Craft team stays in the Craft team … until today

Ubuntu Article

Snapcraft, Charmcraft, Rockcraft … you may have heard of these tools, but have you ever wondered how – and by who – they are developed? These tools are the intellectual and keyboard-driven product of Canonical’s Craft team. Officially, the team’s name is *Craft, and the asterisk symbol can easily be seen as a “star” (The ...

Jammin’ with Jami – Freedom, privacy, snaps

Hold your horses, I mean snaps! New feature lets you stop snap updates, for as long as you need

Desktop Article

One of the core aspects of the snap ecosystem is the built-in, robust auto-update mechanism. Whenever there is a snap update available in the Snap Store, the snapd service will apply it, keeping your software patched and up to date. Most of the time, this works great. In some scenarios, though, this may not be ...

Snaps & better refresh notifications

Desktop Article

Automatic updates grant snap users an ability to receive timely patches to their software, both in aspects of security and functionality. This can be rather useful and convenient, especially for applications that have online access. On the other hand, automatic updates can potentially disrupt users’ workflows if they happen to coincide. B ...

The long ARM of KDE

Desktop Article

With over 100 applications available in the Snap Store, KDE is by far the biggest publisher of snaps around. What unifies this impressive portfolio is the fact that all of these snaps are made for the x86 platform. Not anymore. Now, don’t panic! The x86 snaps are not going anywhere. But ARM-supported KDE snaps are ...
