Is Your Website Capable of Balancing the Load During High Traffic?

Benifits of load balancing web servers

You might have heard the word “load balancing” several times but what do you think is that? The term defines the idea of dividing the work load equally among others when one person is unable to handle it. Similarly when we talk about web hosting it refers to distributing the load on single server to other server when a single server can’t handle it. When you click or type a web address you are routed through a host server to view the page. This means a load balancer spreads the “work” of running a website across multiple servers in order to ensure that the servers hosting the site aren’t overloaded.

E5-1620 v3 vs E5-2620 v3

Presentation:

You might have noticed that bodHOST offers two special servers based on these two processors at very competitive price range along with a complete management solution that you will hardly find elsewhere. Anyway, this is not the primary point of today’s our discussion. What we are going to see is, head to head comparison between these two members in the same family, as many still get confused when it comes to the selection, as both are popular and unique features.

So let’s start the comparison!

Advantages of E5-1620 v3

  1. With this series you get a higher operating frequency that helps to achieve better performance for mission critical applications.
  2. The best part is its CPU that supports faster memory with 2133 MHz data rate. That means you get more memory bandwidth which is advantageous for your memory bound programs.
  3. You will also notice performance gains for your applications, which are not memory bound.
  4. In addition, the price of the processor is comparatively less than the price of E5-2620 v3 Microprocessor.

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/

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['relation'] = 'pma__relation';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_info'] = 'pma__table_info';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['table_coords'] = 'pma__table_coords';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['pdf_pages'] = 'pma__pdf_pages';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['column_info'] = 'pma__column_info';
