FTP is a very insecure protocol because all passwords and all data are transferred in clear text. By using TLS, the whole communication can be encrypted, thus making FTP much more secure. This article explains how to set up vsftpd with TLS on a Debian Squeeze server.

New "Wheezy"-based Debian version available for the Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi has announced a new public beta test based on the "wheezy" version of Debian's upcoming OS release.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized, single-board computer running an ARM11 CPU. The $35 Raspberry Pi is aimed at providing schoolchildren with a cheap computer to play around on and learn with, but giving those to kids seems like an awful waste to me. Smile

Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) to a distributed replicated storage with GlusterFS. Nodes 1 and 2 (replication1) as well as 3 and 4 (replication2) will mirror each other, and replication1 and replication2 will be combined to one larger storage server (distribution). Basically, this is RAID10 over network. If you lose one server from replication1 and one from replication2, the distributed volume continues to work. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem.
