Apptainer 1.1.0 Is Here, with Improved Security and User Experience Here at CIQ, we’re excited to highlight an important announcement from the Apptainer community. Apptainer (formerly Singularity), a Linux Foundation project, announced version 1.1.0 of […]
This article describes two things: (1) How to create an OpenRadioss Apptainer container image from a daily released repository and (2) How to run the 2012 Toyota Camry Detailed Finite Element Model Toyota Camry Impact Model in LS-DYNA® format using the OpenRadioss Apptainer container.
A key motivation to be part of CIQ is the overarching vision and desire to elevate technical computing to a totally new plane of usability. We don’t just believe we can do this; we believe we are doing this.
We conducted a short informal survey of typical things that Rocky Linux power users do to personalize their systems right after a fresh install and we’ve collected the list here.
Rocky Linux 9 was recently released with a host of exciting features and support for new architectures. The most buzzworthy tool is Peridot, a completely cloud-native build system for managing and updating Rocky Linux. What […]
Image-generating AI models are currently taking the internet by storm, with some of the most popular and well-known of these being part of the DALL·E series of models created by OpenAI. The most advanced of these, DALL·E 2, can generate extremely realistic (or surrealistic) images from simple prompts written in natural language – including, for example, art in the style of many famous artists.
Rocky Linux 8.6 features major changes listed in the following sections in the Security, Programming, Identity Management, Infrastructure and Development tools categories.
In the first post of this series, we showed how to create a Rocky Linux 8.5 virtual machine from CIQ’s Rocky Linux 8.5 image using Microsoft Azure’s web portal. This is the quickest way to get a running virtual machine since no software need be installed locally and the portal can be used to create (or name) key material, e.g. a .pem file. You get convenience and speed to an outcome, but you sacrifice repeatability and customization. In the second post of this series, we addressed repeatability not by creating new virtual machines from the portal, but – wait for it! – from the command line. This required installing some client side software, specifically the Azure CLI toolkit, but the installation and configuration can be done in less than an hour and is done once and for all as was shown in the previous article.
A previous article covered how to quickly launch a Rocky Linux instance using the web interface on the Azure portal. In this article, I summarize how to do a similar thing using the Azure CLI tools. A follow-on post will spin up virtual machines and immediately customize them with cloud-init, an interesting and rich topic in its own right.
In this blog post, I’ll show you how to spin up a Rocky Linux virtual machine in Azure. Subsequent posts will explain how to do similar actions in code starting with the bash command line. Future posts will explain the journey Rocky Linux takes from the Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation’s build service to generalized cloud images to cloud specific and vendor specialized images that you can spin up at a moment’s notice online with a web browser or via the vendor’s command line interface.
