Virtualization With KVM On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Virtualization With KVM On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

This guide explains how you can install and use KVM for creating and running virtual machines on an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 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.

Virtual Multiserver Environment With Dedicated Web & MySQL, Email & DNS Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3

Virtual Multiserver Environment With Dedicated Web & MySQL, Email & DNS Servers On Debian Squeeze With ISPConfig 3

This tutorial describes how you can set up a single dedicated server as a virtual multiserver environment using OpenVZ with dedicated Web & MySQL, Email and DNS servers on Debian Squeeze. Also, you will learn how to maintain all these servers. As an addition, you will learn how to install some very useful packages on all of them, how to protect them and how to monitor them. At the end you will have a fully functional virtual multiserver environment, ready for shared hosting.

Proxmox VE 2.x With Software Raid

Proxmox VE 2.x With Software Raid

Proxmox Virtual Environment is an easy to use Open Source virtualization platform for running Virtual Appliances and Virtual Machines. Proxmox does not officially support software raid but I have found software raid to be very stable and in some cases have had better luck with it than hardware raid.

How To Install KVM And libvirt On CentOS 6.2 With Bridged Networking

How To Install KVM And libvirt On CentOS 6.2 With Bridged Networking

This tutorial describes how to install the KVM hypervisor and libvirt virtualization library on Linux CentOS 6.2. At the end of this guide you will have a CentOS box (name it host) with the following capabilities: virtualization capacity: chance for multiple guests (Linux/Windows) running and sharing the host's hardware; bridge network configuration: you'll be able to directly access to the guests as if they were physical machines on the same LAN and viceversa; visual management: using virt-manager (I use Ubuntu 11.10 in this howto) you will be able to remotely admin the virtual machines on the CentOS host.

Virtualization With Xen On CentOS 6.2 (x86_64) (Paravirtualization & Hardware Virtualization)

Virtualization With Xen On CentOS 6.2 (x86_64) (Paravirtualization & Hardware Virtualization)

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen (version 4.1.2) on a CentOS 6.2 (x86_64) system. Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other, but still use the same hardware.

Converting A VMware Image To A Physical Machine

Converting A VMware Image To A Physical Machine

This tutorial shows how to convert an existing CentOS VM to a Physical machine. This tutorial covers the cloning of the VM to an unpartitioned HDD and troubleshoot some of the possible errors that you may have booting the OS on your new hardware. To illustrate this procedure I will use VMware Workstation 7 as the handler to transfer the VM installation to a physical HDD.

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.1 On A Headless Ubuntu 11.10 Server

VBoxHeadless - Running Virtual Machines With VirtualBox 4.1 On A Headless Ubuntu 11.10 Server

This guide explains how you can run virtual machines with VirtualBox 4.1 on a headless Ubuntu 11.10 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.

Installing OpenVZ + Management Of VMs Through ISPConfig 3 (Debian 6.0)

Installing OpenVZ + Management Of VMs Through ISPConfig 3 (Debian 6.0)

This tutorial describes the installation of an OpenVZ host server to manage virtual machines from within the ISPConfig 3 hosting control panel. OpenVZ is a lightweight virtualization technology for Linux servers, similar to jails on *BSD systems. ISPConfig 3 contains a module to manage OpenVZ virtual machines on the local server and on remote servers that run ISPConfig.
