Is Scalability A Million Dollar Question for You?

scalability

No wonder those well-known to cloud, might be knowing that scaling is the distinctiveness of the cloud. Basically scaling is of two types – vertical and horizontal scaling. But most of you aren’t quite aware about what do they really mean? In a dynamic environment, business applications can succeed only with scalability.

Introduction to the Eleven Key Components of OpenStack – Part 1

openstack_havana_conceptual_arch

What is this OpenStack? Does that mean opening the stack of applications? No no…that’s a set of software tools in order to build and manage cloud computing platforms for both public as well as private clouds. OpenStack basically, helps in managing the pool of resources in any datacenter by turning all the set of these software tools into a pool of resources that can be managed from a single place.

Understanding the Terms in OpenStack –

Since OpenStack is a set of software tools for constructing and managing cloud computing platforms for all three types of clouds, it’s made of several parts that are moving. Being an open source, there’s freedom to add additional components to OpenStack to meet the needs of the users. According to its community, there are nine key components that are a part of the “core” of it, distributed as a part of any OpenStack system and officially maintained by the community. Two more have been added to the list in the last Icehouse release, improving the figure to eleven from nine.

ownCloud Installation with Linux Distribution

Logo_OwnCloud

  1. What is ownCloud?
  2. How to prepare web server for installation?
  3. Installation of ownCloud
  4. Completion of the establishment

First, we’ll see what exactly ownCloud is!

It is an open source application for cloud storage and online file management. Basically it is similar to the famous DropBox, because it can store and synchronize files between one or more work stations or servers and ownCloud server. It is also fulfilling the role of backup server for safekeeping files and server synchronization. To implement this service you must have a web server running PHP and MySQL or SQLite.

Among all these features, there is obviously the possibility to share files; also you can play music directly online with the integrated player, can manage calendar, contact management, viewing and editing documents online, the visualization and filing photos in galleries, etc…. Moreover, many plugins are available in order to insert new functionality to ownCloud.

Here, we took Debian server and we are going to see together how to install ownCloud with Apache on web server that coupled with PHP and SQLite.

But, before we proceed, it is important to know how to prepare web server for the installation!!!

Before installing ownCloud application, ensure that your web server is equipped with essentials. If you haven’t, then first install Apache and PHP libraries for ownCloud’s different needs. We will enter the following commands:

apt-get update
apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-common php5-gd
apt-get install php5-sqlite curl libcurl3 libcurl3-dev php5-curl

For information, we install apache2, php5 and SQLite and several PHP modules. However, MySQL installs automatically with ownCloud during the installation via apt-get.

Installation of ownCloud

Now we continue with the installation of ownCloud. Following are the commands that we would type:

echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/isv:/ownCloud:/community/Debian_7.0/ /' >>
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/owncloud.list 
apt-get update
apt-get install owncloud 

Here, we just insert a new row to the repository containing ownCloud Addons to our sources.list and then we updated our deposits and installed ownCloud. When installing ownCloud, MySQL database service is also installed, it will then have to indicate a password twice for the “root” or MySQL.

Note: PHP5 packages allowing PHP to communicate with MySQL, 
which is also installed automatically during installation of ownCloud.
So it makes our work easier.

We will then set the “group www-data”, containing the user of the same name used by Apache as a group owner on useful directories in the operation of ownCloud. We will seize it for the following commands:

cd /var/www/
chown www-data:www-data -R owncloud/

SQL Database Mirroring –Introduction to Operating Modes

In the last part of SQL database mirroring, you have learnt about database mirroring and why it’s called as SQL database mirroring. Now, let’s take a look at the operating modes of SQL database mirroring. SQL database mirroring can prove beneficial in terms of high availability and disaster recovery by setting it up to different operating modes. A DBA can choose among the three modes as below, depending on their requirements –

Mirroring itself gives you an idea that it is related to database cloning or duplication. It is actually creating and maintaining redundant copies of a database. This is to confirm continuous data availability and avoid or minimize downtime that might be a result of fault in network operation when it is partially compromised or data corruption and loss. When there is redundancy, it is ensured that there is at least one viable copy of a database available and accessible during system upgrades.

Creating multiple instances with OpenVPN

In this tutorial we will see how to create multiple instances on dedicated server with OpenVPN!

Depending on where you are, it happens that some ports are blocked or filtered. Rather than having each time to redo your configuration to adapt to the new port, it is easier to create a specific configuration port.

It should be noted that since the recent version of OpenVPN, the application will default launch all configurations found in the file “/ etc / openvpn” that is to say, all the files in “.conf “.
