Nowadays, Docker has support for plugins; for LINBIT, volume plugins are certainly the most interesting feature. Volume plugins open the way for storing content residing in usual Docker volumes on DRBD backed storage.
In this blog post we show a simple example of using our new Docker volume plugin to create a WordPress powered blog with a MariaDB database, where both the content of the blog and the database is replicated among two cluster nodes. Continue reading →
Recently we’ve upgraded one of our virtualization clusters (more RAM), and in the course of this did an upgrade of the virtualization hosts from Ubuntu Lucid to RHEL 6.3 — without any service interruption. Continue reading →
Deutsche Wolke (“German Cloud”) was founded to establish Federal Cloud Infrastructure in Germany.
This infrastructure will provide additional legal and security protections for hosted data. No longer will small businesses be exposed to the legal risk of losing their website presence without a trial (an unfortunate reality when doing business on transatlantic clouds).
The natural partner for backend storage infrastructure is LINBIT; as authors and maintainers of DRBD, we are best suited to provide the technical expertise to achieve High Availability. Also, DRBD Proxy is the obvious choice for off-site or disaster recovery replication (from the office into the cloud).
We at LINBIT look forward to seeing this project grow and prosper!
