Als test voor de nieuwe versie van Ubuntu, 20.04 LTS, hebben we een nieuwe loginserver beschikbaar, onder de naam <tt>lilo7.science.ru.nl</tt>. Over enige tijd zal deze de vier jaar oude loginserver <tt>lilo5</tt> vervangen. De naam <tt>lilo</tt>, die altijd naar de nieuwste/snelste loginserver wijst, zal pas dan omgezet worden van de tweeënhalf jaar oude <tt>lilo6</tt> naar de nieuwe <tt>lilo7</tt>. De nieuwe <tt>lilo7</tt> is een Dell PowerEdge R7515 met 1 AMD 7502P 2.5GHz 32-core processor en 64GB RAM. Met hyperthreading aan lijkt dit dus een 64-processor machine. Voor wie de identiteit van deze server wil controleren alvorens het Science wachtwoord aan de nieuwe server te geven, zie [https://wiki.science.ru.nl/cncz/index.php?title=Hardware_servers&setlang=nl#Linux_.5Bloginservers.5D.5Blogin_servers.5D de sectie over onze loginservers].

As a test of the new version of Ubuntu, 20.04 LTS, we have installed a new login server <tt>lilo7.science.ru.nl</tt>. In a few months it will replace the four year old login server <tt>lilo5</tt>. The name <tt>lilo</tt>, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the more than two year old <tt>lilo6</tt> to the new <tt>lilo7</tt>. The new <tt>lilo7</tt> is a Dell PowerEdge R7515 with 1 AMD 7502P 2.5GHz 32-core processor and 64GB RAM.  Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 64 processors.

<itemTags>medewerkers,studenten</itemTags>

Sinds kort heeft C&amp;CZ een extra keus voor de opslag van data, naast de traditionele RAID-opslag op individuele fileservers: [https://wiki.cncz.science.ru.nl/index.php?title=Diskruimte&setlang=nl#Ceph_Storage Ceph]. De voornaamste voordelen van [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceph_(software) Ceph] zijn dat het vrijwel onbeperkt schaalbaar is en geen single-point-of-failure heeft, maar juist "self-healing" en "self-managing" is. Binnen de Ceph-storage zijn nog verschillende keuzes mogelijk, de duurdere zijn zelfs bestand tegen de uitval van een heel datacenter. De Ceph-opslag kan ook aangeboden worden als [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_S3 S3-storage]. Vanwege de cluster-opzet kan de performance van Ceph-storage verrassend zijn: schrijven is i.h.a. sneller dan lezen, vooral bij veel kleine bestanden kan Ceph veel trager zijn dan de traditionele storage. Wie wil proberen of Ceph voordelen heeft. kan [[Contact|contact opnemen met C&CZ]].

Recently C&amp;CZ presented an extra choice for data storage, next to the traditional RAID storage on individual fileservers: [https://wiki.cncz.science.ru.nl/index.php?title=Diskruimte&setlang=en#Ceph_Storage Ceph]. The main advantages of [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceph_(software) Ceph] are, that is scales almost without limits and does not have a single point of failure, but instead is "self-healing" and "self-managing". Within Ceph storage, choices can be made, the more expensive ones have no problem when a complete datacenter goes down. The Ceph storage can also be used as [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_S3 S3-storage]. Because of the cluster setup, performance of Ceph storage can be surprising: writing is in general faster than reading, especially with many small files, Ceph can be much slower than traditional storage. If you want to try whether Ceph suits you, please [[Contact|contact C&CZ]].

Sinds enkele dagen is macOS Catalina beschikbaar. Het is **geen** goed idee om als een van de eersten te upgraden, dat zal problemen opleveren. Tot nu toe is aan ons gemeld: Adobe software werkt niet, F-Secure Client Security werkt niet, MestreNova werkt niet, EndNote heeft een upgrade nodig naar 9.3.1 of hoger, Science VPNsec werkt pas na herinstallatie VPN. Voor meer informatie over wat mis kan gaan, zie [https://www.zdnet.com/article/macos-catalina-hold-off-for-a-couple-of-weeks/ Hold Off Catalina] en [https://cdm.link/2019/10/wait-on-catalina/ Wait on Catalina].

Test of Ubuntu 20.04 on Linux login server lilo7

As a test of the new version of Ubuntu, 20.04 LTS, we have installed a new login server lilo7.science.ru.nl. In a few months it will replace the four year old login server lilo5. The name lilo, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the more than two year old lilo6 to the new lilo7. The new lilo7 is a Dell PowerEdge R7515 with 1 AMD 7502P 2.5GHz 32-core processor and 64GB RAM. Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 64 processors. For users who want to check the identity of this new server before supplying their Science-password to the new server, see the section about our loginservers. Please report all problems with this new version of Ubuntu Linux.

New data storage: Ceph

Recently C&CZ presented an extra choice for data storage, next to the traditional RAID storage on individual fileservers: Ceph. The main advantages of Ceph are, that is scales almost without limits and does not have a single point of failure, but instead is "self-healing" and "self-managing". Within Ceph storage, choices can be made, the more expensive ones have no problem when a complete datacenter goes down. The Ceph storage can also be used as S3-storage. Because of the cluster setup, performance of Ceph storage can be surprising: writing is in general faster than reading, especially with many small files, Ceph can be much slower than traditional storage. If you want to try whether Ceph suits you, please contact C&CZ.
