    AWS Launches its Bottlerocket Container Operating System into General Availability

    Amazon Web Services Inc. today announced the general availability of Bottlerocket, an open-source Linux distribution it has developed specifically for running software containers. Popular Linux distributions are designed to run not only containers, which enable applications to be run in multiple computing environments, but also a range of other workloads. Because they support a large number of use cases, they have a large number of components that can be difficult to manage. When developing Bottlerocket, AWS left out many standard Linux components and kept only the ones necessary to run container-based workloads, creating an operating system that it says is both easier…

    Attention AWS Customers: You Might be Running a Malicious Crypto Miner

    You Can Do Everything in Pandas With SQL

If you were to download a complete, massive dataset — perhaps store it as a .csv file — you would need to spend at least several minutes waiting for the file to complete download and be converted into a DataFrame by Pandas.
