Using CentOS Cloud Images with Virsh and Nuage Metadata

The following tools will help you to create virsh domains from CentOS Cloud images (those images can be downloaded from http://cloud.centos.org/centos/7/images). The script was based on Giovanni’s Post: Create a Linux Lab on KVM Using Cloud Images. I am adding Nuage metadata into the XML to connect this domain to our VRS. After this process you may manage connectivity, ACLs, forwarding from the Nuage VSD console. … Continue reading Using CentOS Cloud Images with Virsh and Nuage Metadata

Public “Infrastructure as a Service” has got commodity (revisited)

After revisiting one of my first post: “IaaS has got commodity“, I must to say that I was so damn RIGHT! – excuse my incredible lack of modesty -. Weeks ago my boss has told to the KIO’s board that I have two daemons – or maybe angels, I don’t see the difference… Ups! I will burn in hell – over my shoulders fighting about who will bring me the best advice: … Continue reading Public “Infrastructure as a Service” has got commodity (revisited)

Would Bitcoin break the foreseen cloud’s adoption paradigm?

Now let’s go for some future-logistic (or maybe some tech-apocalypses) Based on the note “These Are the Hottest New Open Source Projects Right Now” and specifically in the section “Beyond Bitcoin”, I have to say projects like Storj, IPFS and OpenBazaar make my mind rolls. Bitcoin is a beautiful concept – some kind of altruist-  and I can think there millions, including myself, expecting what will … Continue reading Would Bitcoin break the foreseen cloud’s adoption paradigm?

Putting pieces together between innovation and exponential growth

Beyond a datacenter and hardware fault tolerant strategy (part 3/3)

Finally, we are in the last part. My previous note has almost finished with the sentence: “Most of the customers defines their application instances based on this non-redundant logical architecture”. The next picture illustrate the exact meaning of this. All the redundancy at the facility/hardware means nothing when you lose a virtual instance cause to a human mistake. You will have to recover it from the last … Continue reading Beyond a datacenter and hardware fault tolerant strategy (part 3/3)
