About This Book
Who This Book Is For
This book is for OpenStack administrator, cloud administrator, cloud engineer, or cloud developer with some real time understanding of cloud computing, OpenStack and familiarity with Linux command is essential to start with this book.
What You Will Learn
OpenStack is one of the most popular open source cloud computing platforms, and it is used most of all for deploying Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions. Enabling high availability in OpenStack is a required skill for cloud administrators and cloud engineers in today’s world.
This book helps you to achieve high availability and resiliency to OpenStack. This means clustering, fencing, load-balancing, distributed networking, leveraging shared storage, automatic failover, and replication. We start with a basic understanding of what a highly available design is meant to achieve in OpenStack and various ways to achieve high availability in OpenStack through simple step-by-step procedures.
Through hands-on examples, you will develop a solid knowledge of horizontally-scalable, fault-resistant, and highly-available OpenStack clusters and will be able to apply the techniques from this book in your day-to-day projects. This book also sheds light on the principles of application design for high availability, and monitoring for high availability, with examples.
Style and approach
This is a step-by-step guide that uses clustering and high-availability solutions available in the market and provides a comprehensive plan to connect them with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform to make you a competent OpenStack administrator.
