Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On CentOS 6.3

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On CentOS 6.3

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on CentOs 6.3. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On CentOS 6.3 (Initiator And Target)

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On CentOS 6.3 (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running CentOS 6.3. AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI). To the AoE initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On CentOS 6.3

This guide explains how to set up an NFS server and an NFS client on CentOS 6.3. NFS stands for Network File System; through NFS, a client can access (read, write) a remote share on an NFS server as if it was on the local hard disk.

Creating Virtual RedHat/CentOS/Scientific Linux/Fedora Appliances For KVM With BoxGrinder (Fedora 17)

BoxGrinder is a tool that allows you to build virtual machines (with RedHat, CentOS, Scientific Linux or Fedora as the OS) for multiple virtualization techniques. Currently it supports KVM, VMware, Amazon EC2, VirtualBox, and VirtualPC. This tutorial shows how to use BoxGrinder to create a CentOS 6 KVM guest on Fedora 17 and also how to deploy it to a remote KVM host.

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On CentOS 6.3

Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On CentOS 6.3

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on CentOS 6.3. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this. I will outline two solutions: the first is to proxy requests for CGI scripts to Thttpd, a small web server that has CGI support, while the second solution uses a CGI wrapper to serve CGI scripts.

Virtualization With KVM On A CentOS 6.3 Server

Virtualization With KVM On A CentOS 6.3 Server

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on a CentOS 6.3 server. I will show how to create image-based virtual machines and also virtual machines that use a logical volume (LVM). KVM is short for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and makes use of hardware virtualization, i.e., you need a CPU that supports hardware virtualization, e.g. Intel VT or AMD-V.
