Use Case: Creating a Solution for Xen/KVM High Availability

  • Sander van Vugt


In previous chapters, you read how virtual machines were used as cluster nodes, to ensure that availability of vital resources is maximized. But what happens if the virtual machine itself goes down? Chances are that you’re using VMware and, within VMware, have configured high availability (HA), which ensures that the virtual machines themselves are restarted, if they go down. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to create an alternative, using open source software.
