Building My Odroid-C2 Docker Cloud Part 1 – In Search of a Stable Linux

Introduction

I’ve just taken delivery of 5 Odroid-C2 single board computers (SBCs) from Hardkernel. In case you don’t know, ODROID-C2 is a 64-bit quad-core SBC with specifications above and beyond those of Raspberry Pi 3. For example Odroid-C2 runs the quad-core 64-bit A53 processors at 2GHz (vs Raspberry Pi 3’s 1.2 GHz), Gigabit ethernet (vs 10/100 Mbps Ethernet), 2Gbytes of memory (vs 1Gbytes), supports 4K display (vs HD), etc.

I am planning to set up my 5 Odroid-C2 SBCs as a Docker cluster to form an experimental private cloud. But before I can do that, I must choose a stable Operating System (OS) for the SBCs to run on. Here is what I went through in selecting my OS. Continue reading Building My Odroid-C2 Docker Cloud Part 1 – In Search of a Stable Linux

Making JBoss Fuse, Data Virtualisation and BPMS Work Together – Part 1

Introduction

Red Hat has been using the phrase “Accelerate, Integrate and Automate”, for sometime now, to explain its comprehensive middleware portfolio to its customers. Red Hat middleware does not work in isolation. It is imperative that these different middleware products can work together to achieve a business outcome.

In this article, I am going to show you how to make the 2 “Integrate” products: JBoss Fuse (Fuse), JBoss Data Virtualisation (JDV) and the “Automate” products: JBoss Business Process Management Suite (BPMS)/JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS) work together. Since BPMS/BRMS and JDV run on JBoss Application Server (EAP), I can even claim that this example involves middleware products of all 3 categories ie, Accelerate, Integrate and Automate.
