Virtualisation talk

So this coming Monday will be the 2 year anniversary of the Rossendale Linux User Group, not too shabby really. Not marking the occasion or anything but I’m going to be running a talk/demo on virtualisation under Linux. Seems to be the pet project I’ve worked on the most so have a fairly polished setup to talk about.
But why make it easy on myself? I normally use CentOS for server builds but just for a change, as it seems to be the way I’m heading, I decided to give Ubuntu a shot.

Turned out quite well and seem to have the same polished end product.

Monday will be the part one of the talk, as i’m sure to come up with a part 3 – I’ve already decided that part 2 will be on openstack, but may change that to part 3 as the natural progression of virtualisation would have something in between. Such as heartbeat monitoring for high availability or better clustering techniques etc etc.

I guess its to see how well part 1 goes first!

Oh and if you are wondering, part 1 contains, building a server, creating vm’s, bringing online a second server, using shared storage, migrating vm’s between hosts, clustering the storage.

I guess another element to the middle part would be to automate the migrations etc…

see here http://rosslug.org.uk/doku.php?id=meetings:12_november_2012 for a fairly comprehensive run through of the talk.

If anyone reading this is from the Rossendale or East Lancs area and fancies coming along to said talk, then please do all are welcome!!!
