Ganeti is a robust cluster virtualization management software tool. It’s built on top of existing virtualization technologies such as Xen and KVM and other Open Source software. Its integration with various technologies such as DRBD and LVM results in a cheaper High Availability infrastructure and linear scaling.
This hands-on tutorial will cover a basic overview of Ganeti, the step-by-step install & setup of a single-node and multi-node Ganeti cluster, operating the cluster, and some best practices of Ganeti. Finally, deploying and using a web-based management tool called Ganeti Web Manager.
If attendees want to participate in the optional hands-on portions of the tutorial, there will be virtual machine images available online and at the tutorial itself. It’s recommended you download the image prior to the tutorial to save on setup time. We’ll be using VirtualBox to deploy Ganeti on two to three Debian nodes.
This tutorial will cover the following:
