Would you like to improve the performace of your GNU Linux distro? Thanks to its flexibility we can maximize it. There are a lot of ways to do it, such as using Swappines configurations, removing unnecesary kernel modules, setting up the kernel more cleanly...

One of these options is Cache Pressure, which enables maximizing RAM memory to change the way the kernel introduces data blocks in the core memory. Making a few changes, our device's performance will be improved in every respect: when you run programs, play or any multimedia content...

The default value setup in Cache Pressure is 100, but we can setup it as we prefer, choosing a value between 0 and 100. In this way, the kernel moves more data (which are not being used at that moment) from the hard drive’s RAM to the SWAP.

If you don’t have much RAM, for example less than 4 GB, it is recommended to choose a value around 50; and if you have over 16, you can setup a value around 100.

Learn how to do it step by step reading the following article:

VDI: The most secure environment for hybrid working

Today is Data Privacy Day. The purpose of this date is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. It was initiated by the European Commission, the Council of Europe, and the Data Protection authorities of the European Union’s member states. Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.

Let’s get started.
