Mozilla Launches VPN Service, Makes Available on Windows and Android in 6 Countries

Mozilla | July 16, 2020

Mozilla’s VPN service has officially launched and is now available for Windows and Android in six countries worldwide, including the US, Canada, and the UK, the company announced today. The service is available for $4.99 a month, and, like other VPNs, it’s designed to make your web-browsing more private and secure. As part of the move, the service is being rebranded from Firefox Private Network to Mozilla VPN, a change that was announced last month. Mozilla argues that its VPN service has a couple of advantages over its many competitors. It says it should offer a faster browsing experience in many cases because it’s based on a protocol with less than a third of the lines of code of an average VPN service provider. The company is also banking on the reputation it’s built up with its privacy-focused browser, and it adds that it only collects the information it needs to run a service and doesn’t keep user data logs.

IBM to Cease Support to Cloud Virtual Servers for VPC on Power in 80 Days

IBM | June 05, 2020

IBM is ending support for IBM Cloud Virtual Servers for VPC on Power in 80 days. As of June 2, new instances of VPC on Power will no longer be able to be provisioned, but existing ones will still exist - until August 22, 2020. IBM Cloud Power offerings have struggled, launching later than planned, and not expanding beyond a single Dallas data center for years. The company suggested users shift from the virtual private cloud service to IBM Power Systems Virtual Servers, but the alternative will not support Linux until an unidentified date later this year. Instead, it supports the less popular and proprietary AIX and IBM i operating systems. As of June 2, new instances of VPC on Power will no longer be able to be provisioned, but existing ones will still exist - until August 22, 2020, when all instances will be deleted. "Please extract data that is still desired as soon as possible, IBM. The Power Systems Virtual Servers offering also does not support GPUs like VPC does. IBM suggests using on-premises Power and GPU combinations, or shifting to using IBM's x86-based cloud service that supports some Nvidia GPUs - although that won't be very helpful for code built for the Power architecture.
