In Detail

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.
