Debian Wheezy Local Git Server With Git Lite Workflow

Debian Wheezy Local Git Server With Git Lite Workflow

This howto describes a shared local git [1] server setup for a small team. This is a repository layout that is familiar to anyone used to working with a traditional version control system. One of the tutorial objectives is to show detailed steps to prepare the server and publish the code on a public service like Github, Gitorius et. al. A second objective is to introduce the Git Lite Workflow in team development. This serves as an introduction to gits powerful branch and merge features. Your personal favorite workflow may be different compared to this model.

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On CentOS 6.3

Distributed Storage Across Four Storage Nodes With GlusterFS 3.2.x On CentOS 6.3

This tutorial shows how to combine four single storage servers (running CentOS 6.3) to one large storage server (distributed storage) with GlusterFS. The client system (CentOS 6.3 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.

How To Back Up MySQL Databases With mylvmbackup On Ubuntu 12.10

mylvmbackup is a Perl script for quickly creating MySQL backups. It uses LVM's snapshot feature to do so. To perform a backup, mylvmbackup obtains a read lock on all tables and flushes all server caches to disk, creates a snapshot of the volume containing the MySQL data directory, and unlocks the tables again. This article shows how to use it on an Ubuntu 12.10 server.
