Rather cool little firewall -- Mark Shuttleworth

Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu founder, labelled Zorp GPL as “rather cool little firewall” when talked about its JuJu integration on IoT World Conference.

Ubuntu Core runs Zorp on IoT World

There were lots of interesting Snappy Apps running on various machines, e.g. Zabbix monitoring, Microsoft real-time performance monitoring integration into Azure, Forgerock’s access and identity management solutions for IoT, Balabit’s Zorp firewall, F5’s Linerate loadbalancer, Freedomotic, Eclipse MQTT via Mosquito, M2MLabs, IP camera security solutions, WebRTC conference solutions, etc.

Snappy switches with Zorp GPL by Ubuntu

“Enterprises now have a single platform to manage for a very wide range of devices – from switches to access points to robotics to bare metal container hosts. Snappy Ubuntu Core unifies ‘all the things’ and provides management with a universal firmware and app store.” said Mark Shuttleworth on IoT World 2015.

Penguin Computing is the first to qualify and offer switches based on snappy Ubuntu Core and their Arctica network control software. Initial offerings will be top of rack 10GE and aggregation 40GE models. Apps include Zorp GPL as firewall.
