High-Availability Linux Clustering
Thurgood Marshall East Ballroom
We are evolving from a single service running on a single server, complete with multiple points of hardware and software failure... but to what? With services and platforms that need to be restored before our pagers or Bat Phones ring, the system administrators of today have a need for high availability. Starting with the current realities of modern data centers, this half-day tutorial will explore practical uses of Linux clusters.
Linux administrators who are planning on implementing a multi-service fail-over cluster implementation in a production environment. Course attendees should be familiar with the basics of system administration in a Linux environment. At no point will the word "cloud" be used, although novice administrators and gurus alike should leave the tutorial having learned something.
The knowledge and ability to create and administer highly available services and filesystems on a Linux cluster.
