Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Debian Lenny

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Debian Lenny

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Debian Lenny. 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 Fedora 10 (Initiator And Target)

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Fedora 10 (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Fedora 10. 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.

Fedora 10 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Fedora 10 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Fedora 10 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.

Using iSCSI On Fedora 10 (Initiator And Target)

This guide explains how you can set up an iSCSI target and an iSCSI initiator (client), both running Fedora 10. The iSCSI protocol is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows iSCSI initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) iSCSI target using normal ethernet cabling. To the iSCSI initiator, the remote storage looks like a normal, locally-attached hard drive.

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On Debian Lenny

Setting Up An NFS Server And Client On Debian Lenny

This guide explains how to set up an NFS server and an NFS client on Debian Lenny. 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.

Xen Live Migration Of An LVM-Based Virtual Machine With iSCSI On Debian Lenny

Xen Live Migration Of An LVM-Based Virtual Machine With iSCSI On Debian Lenny

This guide explains how you can do a live migration of an LVM-based virtual machine (domU) from one Xen host to the other. I will use iSCSI to provide shared storage for the virtual machines in this tutorial. Both Xen hosts and the iSCSI target are running on Debian Lenny in this article.

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Ubuntu 8.10 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.
