Linux on Z and LinuxONE Open Source Software Report: November 2020

Reporting the November 2020 open-source software updates for s390x

Linux on IBM Z and IBM LinuxONE use the s390x hardware architecture, so for some applications a little work sometimes has to be done so they compile and run as expected. This work is often done as a collaboration between the open source projects themselves and a team at IBM that helps with the porting and then validation that the software is working as expected. This effort is an on going collaboration with every release of the software needing to be validated.

For the month of November 2020, the teams worked to also validate the latest versions of the following:

Apache Geode
Apache Solr
Apache Tomcat
Apache ZooKeeper
Consul
CouchDB
Falco
Fluentd
GlusterFS
Go
Kubernetes Minikube
MariaDB
MongoDB Driver - C
MongoDB Driver - Java
MongoDB Driver - PHP
MongoDB Driver - Ruby
Mule
MySQL
Tensorflow Serving 
Tensorflow Transform
PM2
Python
R
RabbitMQ
Rails
Terraform
WildFly

The full list of validated software to date is available here: https://www.ibm.com/community/z/open-source-software/

Are you a developer for an open source project interested in seeing your application made available to users on Linux on IBM Z and IBM LinuxONE? Your first stop should be the LinuxONE Community Cloud where you can sign up for a free virtual machine for 120 days where you can see how your application runs, and discover for yourself what you may need to change to get it to run well on Linux on IBM Z and IBM LinuxONE.

If you want to take the next step, contact Bruce Gilkes at bgilkes@us.ibm.com to talk about getting a longer-lived virtual machine for your project (even ones you can add to your CI system!) and other ways we can support your project.
