In this post we will walk through the definitions, Properties and patterns for building Microservices. What are Microservices? A microservice is really just a service that adheres to a slightly looser definition of the Single Responsibility Principle (SRP) that arose from patterns for object-oriented design. It is a service that does one thing. Properties of Microservices Small, and Focused on Doing One Thing Well AutonomusTo do decoupling well, you’ll need to model your services right and get the APIs right.
Okay, so I am going to try and make this brief and to the point for you to get going. You need a Kubernetes cluster working with Kubeadm? good you are in the right place. First, lets get over the problems first. What you need to see at the end is the following: kube-system dummy-2088944543-1x359 1/1 Running 1 1d kube-system etcd-master 1/1 Running 1 1d kube-system kube-apiserver-master 1/1 Running 0 1d kube-system kube-controller-manager-master 1/1 Running 1 1d kube-system kube-discovery-1769846148-1khb9 1/1 Running 1 1d kube-system kube-dns-2924299975-pg660 4/4 Running 4 1d kube-system kube-flannel-ds-25l4t 2/2 Running 2 1d kube-system kube-flannel-ds-9jtd5 2/2 Running 2 1d kube-system kube-flannel-ds-lvskl 2/2 Running 8 1d kube-system kube-proxy-l1hn5 1/1 Running 1 1d kube-system kube-proxy-p1kbt 1/1 Running 1 1d kube-system kube-proxy-x2b1m 1/1 Running 1 1d kube-system kube-scheduler-master 1/1 Running 1 1d Not this …
In today’s virtual network architecture, NFV is paving the way to become to defacto standard for providing network services in the cloud. NFV relies on Service Function Chaining (SFC), to stitch services together to provide a service-path for packets to traverse. OpenStack, one of the more successful open cloud platforms is considered a good base to start building services for NFV related functions. In this post, we will be having a sneak-peak over the components exposed by neutron-sfc, the service chaining API exposed by OpenStack.
In this post, we are going take a quick look at how OpenStack does networking, along the process we are going to mention the important agents involved.
So having problems using SSH to log into your servers? don’t fret, I am writing this to make your life easier.
There are two ways to use SSH, one using “PasswordAuthentication” and one using ssh-generated public and private Keys. The keyed methods is the one you will end up using most of the time. Now. here is how to go about it:
Welcome to the Software-Define Stack Series, this will be an extensive series, exploring the software-defined aspects behind OpenStack and digging deeper into the structure of OpenStack and its internal anatomy. Before I start to talk about OpenStack specifically, let me explain why this series is called the “Software-Defined” series. The term Software-Defined was first used to describe networks which follow these following patterns: Has decoupled control and data-planes (i.e., the brain is not in the body) Abstracts the underlying functions of the network components (i.
The formal definition for CloudArray is:
“EMC-Cloud Array is a data storage software technology that easily integrates cloud (object) storage into traditional enterprise IT environments”
I am not sure if the definition really reflects what CloudArray does, CloudArray can be considered as a Cloud-Gateway, the reason I think of it this way is because it acts as a middle-man between Applications that talk standard SAN/NAS protocols (iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, and SMB) and public or private cloud providers (e.g., Amazon EC2, OpenStack, ECS, Atmos, Google Cloud, etc.) where most of them are Object-storage based. CloudArray presents Object storage as local-disks to your hosts and applications.
Okay, so recently I have had the chance to play around with vRealize Automation (vRA). Therefore, I am using this chance to share with you the outcomes of this interesting endeavor of mine. I have formulated this article to be in the form of questions and answers, so feel free to jump around to any question you feel like you want an answer to. The questions are: What are the core components of vRA?
I have recently had the chance to do some reading on VMware NSX. I come from a networking background Intertwined with software, previously I have had a chance to research on some of the underpinnings of NSX but never had the time to look at the big picture, so in this writing, I am going to briefly describe the NSX architecture. What is NSX? NSX is VMWare virtual networking on steroids.
IT Manager, Ops, and network administrators suffer today from the complex approaches being followed towards network operations which gives no space for innovation. Additionally, the current box-by-box approaches for configuration and provision can be cumbersome and lack agility to turn up new services quickly to meet demands and Service-Level Agreements (SLA) of internal customers. Adopting a new approach towards network automation is key to addressing these challenges, by automating network operation not only do we reduce operational and management expenses but we also provide investment protection as we adopt the application economy (a software approach that grows much faster).
