As a cloud computing platform from Microsoft, Azure provides a growing collection of integrated services for analysis, computing, database, mobile devices, networking, storage, and web.
The free Linux distribution Debian will also be available on the Azure platform in the future.
In conjunction with Microsoft, credativ is currently preparing corresponding Debian images for Debian 8 (Jessie) and Debian before 7 (Wheezy), which are specially designed to run on Azure and can be easily managed via the platform. credativ will also support the long term maintenance and updating of the Debian images for Azure through its Open Source Support Centres.

[Howto] LDAP scheme for Postfix queries
Mentioned within the official Postfix documentation is the requirement for LDAP verification of address types that are not offered by default. To help you get started, we have uploaded a corresponding scheme on our credativ-Github account.
This Postfix LDAP 'howto' document describes an example of how Postfix can access LDAP to look up addresses or their aliases. Here, the 'howto' assumes that two attributes are defined in the LDAP scheme: mailacceptinggeneralid and maildrop. Postfix calls as mailacceptinggeneralid in src / global / dict_ldap.c on:

credativ has been working on the OpenERP charm for the new Juju platform, a tool from Ubuntu that helps you define, configure and deploy services to any cloud quickly and easily. In this Howto we explain the best way to run Juju on Debian.
Over the past few years, the useful life of desktop PCs has increased to the point where a machine built in 2008 still feels fast enough for most needs, especially when you run Linux on it. However, trying to run Juju the most recommended way (vagrant) on Debian recently hasn't been the best experience so far. The VM eats most of my RAM (the few bits not taken up by Iceweasel already) and takes ages to do the simplest of things.

The end of last month saw the first stable release of CoreOS; a contemporary Linux operating system geared towards efficient distributed computation. The design focuses on high availability and responsiveness of machine clusters in order to deliver a high-performance interface to an optimised cloud system. It achieves this through a highly compartmentalised architecture whose modular nature allows processes within the cluster to be dealt out to nodes based on their immediate availability. This paradigm maximises reliability in the eventuality that a node fails, in that the downed node's workload can be offloaded to the rest of the cloud. In this way, CoreOS streamlines operations in a robust and maintainable manner.

During a recent STEMNET event, 'career speed-dating' at my former stomping ground, Rugby High School for Girls, I was crushed by the lack of enthusiasm for IT. It's a grammar school boasting a strong emphasis on scientific disciplines, yet despite acknowledging that technology is relevant to today's world, the girls just don't associate that with the drudgery of their IT lessons. Whether this is a reflection of the curriculum, the way courses are structured, lack of connection to real-world scenarios, misconceptions about the IT industry - or a combination of all of these... the girls aren't interested.
