OpenStack Private Cloud, What IT Developers Should Learn

An example of OpenStack UsageThe second largest car manufacturer in the world, Volkswagen Group, will use the open-source cloud computing platform OpenStack to build a private cloud that will host websites for its brands VW, Audi and Porsche, and will be a platform for innovating automotive technology, the company announced Wednesday. For the past two years, VW officials at the company’s Wolfsburg, Germany, headquarters debated what platform to use. VW decided to first build out a private cloud based on OpenStack that will eventually span thousands of physical nodes across multiple data centers in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Eventually VW hopes to incorporate public cloud resources to create a hybrid cloud, said officials with VW’s consultant, Mirantis.
When fully built out, VW’s private cloud could be one of the top five or 10 largest OpenStack-based clouds in production, said Mirantis co-founder and chief marketing officer Boris Renski. According to the OpenStack Foundation’s user survey in October 2015, only 7% of OpenStack production deployments surpassed 1,000 nodes. Only 2% of OpenStack deployments were in the industrial/manufacturing industry.
“The Group IT Cloud is a new way to deliver Volkswagen applications at any scale, in a single global network, consistent across VW brands,” wrote Mario Mueller, Corporate Director IT Operational Services & Infrastructure Technologies, Volkswagen Group in an email interview. “Over time, all net new applications will run on this cloud which will naturally replace most of the legacy systems.” It will not replace legacy systems, but instead will host most of the company’s newly developed applications.

What is All About OpenStack
It’s built entirely atop x86 hardware, using a Red Hat operating system and the Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor (95% of OpenStack production clouds use KVM, OpenStack’s user survey shows) with Mirantis’ licensed OpenStack distribution provisioning the virtual machines.

 VW officials said they’re using OpenStack’s Nuetron/OVS/VXLan technology for networking and Ceph for storage, with others likely to be added. Renski said VW is in the final stages of choosing a platform as a service (PaaS) layer to act as an application development and hosting environment that would run on top of the OpenStack IaaS.

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…
