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

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

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Debian Wheezy) 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 (Debian Wheezy 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.

Searching For Files And Folders With The find Command

In this tutorial we'll look at the find command and how you can quickly use it to locate files in your filesystem. Find is a powerful utility capable of locating files anywhere on your system including mounted drives and removable storage, processing regular expressions, and even running other commands on those files. Fortunately only a few simple options are needed to provide most users with all the capability they need.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Debian Wheezy. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here.

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.

How To Forward Ports To Your Ubuntu 12.04 LTS LAMP Server

How To Forward Ports To Your Ubuntu 12.04 LTS LAMP Server

This how-to is a wrapper for the fantastic portforwarding help site www.portforward.com
To support, and make it very easy for, those who want to set up a home server on an ubuntu 12.04 LTS server running LAMP. I will assume you have installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS with LAMP and are trying to setup a webserver and need to do a port forward for port 80. While we're at it we'll choose a setup to do port 443 as well so we could potentially host websites on https later.

How To Install No-ip2 On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS In Order To Host Servers On A Dynamic IP Address

How To Install No-ip2 On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS In Order To Host Servers On A Dynamic IP Address

Hosting your own servers at home is great, you can host your own website from home, share family photos, and stream your media to anywhere in the world. However all of this requires that you have a location on the internet which people can find such as http://www.mywebsitedomain.com. This is normally done by purchasing a domain name and pointing it to a static IP address which isn't free. In this how-to I will show you how to achieve the same web address result on a dynamic IP address by installing the free No-IP service into Ubuntu 12.04 LTS which is also the perfect host for your own websites and streaming services.
