As the open-source community completed a decade of existence, GitHub released a report which reveals the top open source project trends for 2018, on the basis of contributors, visitors, and star activity data. Today, GitHub is used by millions of developers to share code and build business. It isn’t just about the code (like all things in life), it’s the people that keep the project moving forward and alive along with the community of users. TensorFlow/TensorFlow (24k) and Microsoft/vscode (15k) had the most number of active repositories in 2017. While Kubernetes/Kubernetes was the most discussed repository in the year. GitHub is home to open source projects written in 337 unique programming languages, especially JavaScript. Java, the second most popular language on GitHub in 2016, has been replaced by Python in 2017. Below are the top open-source project trends to look out for in the year ahead. Cross-platform development GitHub revealed that cross-platform/web development showed the highest activity growth in 2017. It was the most contributed, most visited, and most starred project. The cross-platform development leads to easier development process and enables deployment across desktop and mobile platforms in lesser time. As per the data, Angular/angular-cli repository saw the highest growth, with a 2.2 time increase in contributors in 2017, as compared to a year ago. Deep learning & Machine learning Artificial intelligence, especially its deep learning category, drove the interest of a number of users. The deep learning projects like Keras-team/Keras and Mozilla/DeepSpeech were the most contributed projects in 2017. The visitors for TensorFlow/TensorFlow in 2017 grew 2.2 times from 2016, while TensowFlow/models visitors grew 5.5 times. The popularity of image and speech recognition, and other such technologies among enterprises, is contributing towards the implementation of deep learning. Machine learning, the practice of teaching a computer to learn, attracted users to the repositories, including scikit-learn/scikit-learn and keras-team/keras. While Tensorflow repository provides scalable machine learning using data flow graphs, scikit-learn offers machine learning in Python language. New skills The repositories which were designed to teach new coding skills ranked third in the list. Users starred a lot of projects related to getting coding jobs, learning to code, and coding best practices. Like, Chalarangelo/30-seconds-of-code and norvig/pytudes helped users with code examples in JavaScript and Python, respectively and helped users gain fluency in them. There were more coding skills which guided users with ways to pass software engineering interviews, and in picking up or brushing existing skills.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS – Leaseweb announced today the launch of its innovative multi-Content Delivery Network (CDN) and private CDN, based on true next generation CDN technology. The cloud infrastructure service provider has significantly expanded its worldwide CDN services, reaching new markets in South America, Asia Pacific, and Russia. Leaseweb has also added multiple innovative features for its customers in the entertainment and e-commerce industries.

Within the surging CDN market, multi-CDNs are a relatively new phenomenon. They are built to form a federation of several content networks, allowing publishers to scale up their overall capacity or expand their global reach by adding POPs to the network where a single CDN may not have coverage. By offering a single control panel, the Leaseweb multi-CDN solution helps internet companies overcome the management and cost issues of running multiple CDNs simultaneously. Most current multi-CDNs on the market have a limited feature set and require manual configuration. This led Leaseweb to expand its global service offering with a next generation multi-CDN platform.


In addition to the multi-CDN offering, Leaseweb is also offering the possibility of integrating a managed private CDN. A private CDN is a dedicated network and therefore ideal for customers with specific requirements. This new service is in line with the hybrid strategy of Leaseweb, giving customers the power to combine a public and a private CDN via one self-service customer portal. Leaseweb now offers best-in-class performance through personalized configuration, unified reporting and extensive security functionality.

Julien Lehmann, Managing Director at Leaseweb CDN, says about the next generation multi-CDN: “For many of our customers in the field of entertainment and e-commerce the user experience is key and CDNs are crucial in achieving this. As the use of multiple CDNs gains broader adoption by the market, we decided to make a strategic move from offering our CDN platform to giving direct access to our CDN expertise. This way we can act as a trusted partner and propose the best multi or hybrid CDN solution to our customers in a transparent manner.”

About Leaseweb
Leaseweb is a leading Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider serving a worldwide portfolio of 17,500 customers ranging from SMBs to Enterprises. Services include Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Colocation, Dedicated Servers, Content Delivery Network, and Cyber Security Services supported by exceptional customer service and technical support. With more than 80,000 servers under management, Leaseweb has provided infrastructure for mission-critical websites, Internet applications, email servers, security, and storage services since 1997. The company operates 17 data centers in locations across Europe, Asia and North America, all of which are backed by a superior worldwide network with a total capacity of more than 5.5 Tbps.

MONTRÉAL – ROOT Data Center announces today the availability of a new whitepaper titled, Power, Real Estate and Capability: Evaluating Your Data Center’s Expansion Capacity. Global creation of data is increasing at a massive rate and the ability to store and manage this data is crucial for the IT operator. As enterprises through small businesses move to the cloud, cloud operators must be able to respond to increasing demands for more capacity quickly and reliably. Data center choice is paramount. In this whitepaper, ROOT Data Center explores the factors that create success for hyperscalers and enterprises in supporting fast and reliable expansion and scalability.

According to the white paper, as demand for data storage space increases at its rampant pace, three of the most important considerations for global enterprises and hyperscale providers seeking effective data center hosting solutions are available power, available space and deployment capabilities. As enterprise IT infrastructures grow and mature, they require higher power densities as well as increased cabinet space. Additionally, as data center real estate is quickly depleting, it has become necessary to work with a provider capable of building out infrastructure within a geographic location that offers available space. Finally, an effective data center provider should be able to ensure the installation of infrastructure in short time frames.


“It has become essential for companies seeking data center solutions to ensure their provider is capable of effectively expanding infrastructure, power and space to future-proof requirements,” says AJ Byers, President and CEO of ROOT Data Center. “Historically, it was acceptable for a data center to have deployment timelines of a year and a half, which now needs to be closer to three months for a multi-megawatt project. In fact, most data center operators are still working at that pace, so the ability to accelerate that timeline to 90 days or less is a key differentiator.”

ROOT Data Center delivers multi-MW implementations in less than 120 days, and offers a PUE of 1.17, combined with 100% sustainable power and densities of up to 40kW per rack. Companies benefit from ROOT’s unmatched deployment speeds and low-cost renewable hydro-electric power from Hydro Quebec. Coupling these benefits with scalable high-performance services, customers are able to achieve effective colocation solutions designed to suit businesses of any size.
