2011 may not have been either “the year of desktop Linux”, but since then has been a year full of interesting news in our little world. Not only that, the past few months have also helped shape some of the most promising open source projects , which may “explode” in 2012.
count, where they performed a review of five of these projects could be given a lot of talk in 2012 . The list consists of the following characters:
Nginx : This web server is already used in 10% of all websites in the world and has earned the confidence of giants like Facebook, Dropbox or WordPress.com, service of this famous self-hosted blogging platform. The passage of Nginx to private enterprise-but the software remains open source, and the recent investment in the company make it clear that Nginx has an interesting future.
OpenStack : the project to Cloud Computing solutions is another major commitment to the future, and is already being implemented by market giants like HP. Scalability is the key factor of this project, which may represent a real alternative to proprietary solutions that impose Cloud Computing and undesirable that famous lock-in binding to these companies to service providers in the cloud.
Stig : I confess I did not know this project, but also comes in a segment increasingly important: that of the non-relational databases (NoSQL), which have had the players so far Cassandra, CouchDB and MongoDB or which now joins Stig. This “database distributed graph” is aimed at providing highly interactive web applications and social. Linux Mint
: despite the criticisms and reservations of some, as our good Metalbyte, it is clear that Linux Mint is moving their chips nicely, especially taking advantage of the criticism of Unity in the latest versions Ubuntu. His “mime” to the classic desktop interface, which wants to implement using as a base 3 and GNOME GNOME Shell is increasingly valued by traditional users, and 2012 could be the year of consolidation.
Gluster : another technology that I just met and is very focused, as you might guess from its name-clusters and, in particular, the storage systems used in these solutions . Red Hat, which bought the company Gluster-is the main guarantee of a project that uses SAS disks and NAS storage systems to create scalable.
holds an interesting 2012 , do not you think PHP 5.x ?
