News from the Web Stack: Update Center install and Django
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Jeff's blog entry on installing Web Stack using IPS (a new feature in 1.5) now has a screencast version (4 min. ogg format, use Firefox 3.5 or VLC 1.0), courtesy of Brian. The GlassFish Web Stack (see recent 1.5 release) uses the same packaging technology as the GlassFish App Server and as OpenSolaris (where the technology initially came from).

IPS, also known as pkg(5), offers a packaging system and tools (both

More good news around the WebStack team: Kai 'Oswald' Seidler, of Apache Friends and XAMPP fame, has joined the team - see Kai's post (German, mock-english). XAMPP is one of the (the?) most popular WAMP Distros (see

GlassFish WebStack... Helping With MySQL.com Outage
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -5Vote Down

I see that Kaj mentioned the (GlassFish) WebStack when telling the story of the MySQL.Com Outage.

One of the main benefits of the WebStack is that all the pieces work very well together, so that was one less thing to worry about; the electrical woes were stressful enough...

WebStack 1.5 - Your (L)AMP Stack
Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Sun's LAMP support is assembled from two pieces: the L is from our Linux/GNU Support (see SunSolve entry), while the AMP comes from the GlassFish WebStack, which, in its latest incarnation includes Apache HTTP Server, lighttpd, memcached, MySQL, PHP, Python, Ruby, Squid, Tomcat, GlassFish (v2.1) and Hudson (features).

The inclusion of Hudson is a bit of an opportunistic move (more on that in a bit), the rest comprises a well tested, integrated, optimized, and extended component

Scaling Olio on Sun's Nehalem Systems and Amber Road
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I introduced Olio a little while ago as a toolkit to help web developers and deployers as well as performance/operations engineers. Olio includes a web2.0 application as well as the necessary software required to drive load against it. Today, we are showcasing the first major deployment of Olio on Sun's newest Intel Nehalem based systems - the SunFire X2270 and the SunFire X4270. We tested 10,000 concurrent users (with a database of 1 million users) using over 1TB of storage in the unstructured object store.

The diagram below shows the configuration we tested.

FreeImage and ImageScience on OpenSolaris
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Although rails is a great development environment for web applications, for a newbie the deployment of a rails application can be challenging due to the myriad dependencies on various gems, native libraries etc.

image_science is one such ruby library that provides an easy way to generate thumbnails. It is therefore quite popular in web2.0 type applications (there isn't a site today that doesn't let you upload photographs of yourself, your pets, gadgets, whatever).  It is a very simple implementation and available as a ruby gem and so easy to install. However, the real work is done by a native library called FreeImage and installing this on OpenSolaris is a little bit of work. Although, I use OpenSolaris here, the instructions apply to Solaris 10 as well if you are using ruby from

Sun's Cloud Computing Portfolio
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Update: Sun has expanded its Cloud Computing portfolio with the recent acquisition of Qlayer, a cloud computing company that automates the deployment and management of both public and private clouds.  The Q-layer organization, based in Belgium, is now part of Sun's Cloud Computing business unit which develops and integrates cloud computing technologies, architectures and services.

Cloud computing is about managing petascale data. Sun's server and storage systems can radically improve the data-intensive computing emerging in the cloud. Some clouds are closed platforms that lock you in. Sun's open source philosophy and Java principles form the core of a strategy that provides

Cool Stack 1.3 is here

It's finally here. Before you download the release, please do read the documentation. It's over a month late, but hopefully the features will compensate for the delay.

You can read about the full list of changes in the Changelog.

Significant changes have been made to the ruby package. In addition to the upgrade to ruby1.8.6p114, we include a number of gems, notably mysql, postgres and mongrel. It should also be easy to install any

Where is 1.3?
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I know many of you may be wondering why Cool Stack 1.3 isn't out yet, so I thought I'd post an update on where we are with the release. When I first started talking about this, I was hoping to get the release out in early May. But several things have colluded to cause a delay.

  • We took on a lot for this release. Although just looking at the proposal, it may seem like a simple matter to just update the versions of the various components, underneath the hood, we decided to do a lot more streamlining of the build and packaging process.  Since so many version updates were involved, that also meant more legal approvals.
  • We have a more formal QA process for this release (and for future releases). The good news is that this means we will have a more quality release, but the bad news is that it now takes more time as

    Cool Stack 1.2 Released
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Finally, it's here. We missed our October 31 deadline, but hopefully that won't matter when you see the contents of the release.

    Short summary of changes in the 1.2 release.

    You can download the new packages from the Sun Download Center.

    Some caveats to be aware of :

    • These packages will over-write Cool Stack 1.1 packages that you may already have installed. All packages continue to install in /opt/coolstack but some of the package names have been changed. Thus, pkgadd(1M) will not know that the new CSKapache2 package will install in /opt/coolstack/apache2 and over-write the contents from a previous Cool Stack 1.1 installation of CSKamp. So, please do save your current installation.
