Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.04

Using mod_spdy With Apache2 On Ubuntu 12.04

SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY") is a new networking protocol whose goal is to speed up the web. It is Google's alternative to the HTTP protocol and a candidate for HTTP/2.0. SPDY augments HTTP with several speed-related features such as stream multiplexing and header compression. To use SPDY, you need a web server and a browser (like Google Chrome and upcoming versions of Firefox) that both support SPDY. mod_spdy is an open-source Apache module that adds support for the SPDY protocol to the Apache HTTPD server. This tutorial explains how to use mod_spdy with Apache2 on Ubuntu 12.04.

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) 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.

Ubuntu 12.04 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Ubuntu 12.04 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Ubuntu 12.04 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.1 On A Headless Ubuntu 12.04 Server

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.1 On A Headless Ubuntu 12.04 Server

This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.1 on a headless Ubuntu 12.04 server. Normally you use the VirtualBox GUI to manage your virtual machines, but a server does not have a desktop environment. Fortunately, VirtualBox comes with a tool called VBoxHeadless that allows you to connect to the virtual machines over a remote desktop connection, so there's no need for the VirtualBox GUI.

Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

Distributed Replicated Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) to a distributed replicated storage with GlusterFS. Nodes 1 and 2 (replication1) as well as 3 and 4 (replication2) will mirror each other, and replication1 and replication2 will be combined to one larger storage server (distribution). Basically, this is RAID10 over network. If you lose one server from replication1 and one from replication2, the distributed volume continues to work. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem.

Streaming Your Desktop With Audio And Webcam Overlay In A Browser Using ffmpeg, crtmpserver And Flowplayer

Streaming Your Desktop With Audio And Webcam Overlay In A Browser Using ffmpeg, crtmpserver And Flowplayer

This tutorial is based on Ubuntu Lucid, but will work on later releases as well with small changes. I will show how I stream my desktop with audio from pulse and webcam from video4linux2. I will also show how to configure crtmpserver and flowplayer so you can watch the live stream from a web browser. In this scenario I use separate host for the tools. Flowplayer is installed on a server running Apache, crtmp server is on a separate server and ffmpeg is installed on the streaming desktop.

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04 - Automatic File Replication Across Two Storage Servers

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Ubuntu 12.04 - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Ubuntu 12.04) that use GlusterFS. Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) 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.

Install Compiz On The Unity Desktop On Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)

Install Compiz On The Unity Desktop On Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)

This tutorial shows how you can configure Compiz on an Ubuntu Linux 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) Unity desktop (the system must have a 3D-capable graphics card - I'm using an NVIDIA GeForce 8200 here). With Compiz you can use beautiful 3D effects like wobbly windows or a desktop cube on your desktop. Ubuntu (Unity 3D) must be selected as your desktop environment.
