Zentific - Multiply your computing. Divide your costs.

by camel
Zentific is a browser-based management interface for clusters of virtual machines running on the open-source Xen® hypervisor. In the spirit of the open-source projects which have made Zentific possible, the application will be released to the community. To ensure that Zentific maintains a high level of reliability, security, and ease of use, we will also be offering a supported version for commercial use.

OpenNebula :: about

by camel
OpenNebula transforms a physical cluster into a flexible virtual infrastructure which dynamically adapts to the changing demands of a service workload. OpenNebula leverages existing virtualization platforms to create a new virtualization layer between the service and the physical infrastructure. This new layer supports the execution of the services on a physical cluster, extending the benefits of VMMs (Virtual Machine Monitors) from a single physical resource to a cluster of resources. OpenNebula effectively decouples a server (deployed as a pre-configured VM) not only from the physical infrastructure but also from its physical location.

Openfiler — Openfiler Community

by camel
Openfiler is a powerful, intuitive browser-based network storage software distribution. Openfiler ScreenshotsOpenfiler delivers file-based Network Attached Storage and block-based Storage Area Networking in a single framework. Openfiler is built on the rPath Linux metadistribution and is distributed as a stand-alone Linux distribution. The entire software stack interfaces with third-party software that is all open source. File-based networking protocols supported by Openfiler include: NFS, SMB/CIFS, HTTP/WebDAV and FTP. Network directories supported by Openfiler include NIS, LDAP (with support for SMB/CIFS encrypted passwords), Active Directory (in native and mixed modes) and Hesiod. Authentication protocols include Kerberos 5. Openfiler includes support for volume-based partitioning, iSCSI (target and initiator), scheduled snapshots, resource quota, and a single unified interface for share management which makes allocating shares for various network file-system protocols a breeze.

Automating deployment and activation of virtual images

by camel
Virtualization offers advantages that include server consolidation, isolation, rapid provisioning, and improved change management processes. Since virtualization breaks the hardware dependency and isolates virtual machines from details about the physical servers on which they are hosted, virtual images can be moved from one hosting platform to another. They can also be cloned to create more virtual machines, as desired. One of the challenges with cloning virtual images is handling operating system, network, and application specific customization. This article provides a sample framework for automating virtual image activation on new host platforms. This article, along with a previous article on Using virtual image templates to deploy WebSphere Application Server, demonstrates an automated approach for quickly and easily provisioning new WebSphere Application Server environments. The sample deployment and activation code included with this article is independent of WebSphere Application Server and can be used in conjunction with other software inside a virtual image. The specific example provided here is for WebSphere Application Server V6 in VMware or XEN virtual images, using SUSE V10 as the guest operating system. The activation techniques described in this article can be used in conjunction with IBM Tivoli® Provisioning Manager as described in Using Tivoli Provisioning Manager to deploy composite virtual appliances.

ganeti - Google Code

by camel & 1 other
Ganeti is a virtual server management software tool built on top of Xen virtual machine monitor and other Open Source software. However, Ganeti requires pre-installed virtualization software on your servers in order to function. Once installed, the tool will take over the management part of the virtual instances (Xen DomU), e.g. disk creation management, operating system installation for these instances (in co-operation with OS-specific install scripts), and startup, shutdown, failover between physical systems. It has been designed to facilitate cluster management of virtual servers and to provide fast and simple recovery after physical failures using commodity hardware.

Xen Cluster Management With Ganeti On Debian Etch | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

by camel & 1 other
Ganeti is a cluster virtualization management system based on Xen. In this tutorial I will explain how to create one virtual Xen machine (called an instance) on a cluster of two physical nodes, and how to manage and failover this instance between the two physical nodes.

Enomalism : XEN Virtualized Server Management Console: Home

by camel
The Enomalism Virtualized Management Dashboard (VMD) is a powerful web-based virtual server manager. Designed to answer the complexity of managing globally disperse virtual server environments. Enomalism helps to ease the transition to a virtualized environment by reducing an IT organizations overall workload. The easy to use dashboard can help with issues including deployment planning, load balancing, automatic VM migration, configuration management, and capacity diagnosis.

XenMan - Open Source Virtualization Management

by camel
XenMan is an intuitive, graphical management tool aimed at operational lifecycle management for the Xen virtualization platform. XenMan is built on the firm design philosophy that ease-of-use and sophistication can, and should, co-exist in a single management tool. So, XenMan should hopefully prove valuable to both seasoned Xen Administrators as well as those just seeking an introduction to Xen Virtualization.

virtualization.info: Release: XenSource XenServer and XenExpress

by camel
Today XenSource adds to its commercial offering two new solutions: XenServer and XenExpress. Both are based on the Xen open source hypervisor, and both features the management tools already powering the XenEnteprise solution.

VMWare and Xen Management with BixData | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

by camel
BixData is a system, application, and network monitoring tool which allows you to easily monitor nearly every aspect of your servers. The newly released version 2.6 is the only application that has the ability to control both Xen and VMWare virtual machines. You can control both VM Hosts (the computer that's running the VM software) and VM Guests (the virtual machines running on the hosts).

XenMan - Open Source Virtualization Management

by camel
XenMan is an intuitive, graphical management tool aimed at operational lifecycle management for the Xen virtualization platform. XenMan is built on the firm design philosophy that ease-of-use and sophistication can, and should, co-exist in a single management tool. So, XenMan should hopefully prove valuable to both seasoned Xen Administrators as well as those just seeking an introduction to Xen Virtualization. With XenMan's secure, multi-node capabilities, administrators can safely manage their entire environment from a single, centralized console. Most common administrative tasks like starting/stopping/provisioning virtual machines (Guest OS's) typically involve just a few mouse clicks with XenMan; as do server management operations like scanning OS configurations or acquiescing individual servers for maintainance.

Enomalism : XEN Virtualized Server Management Console: Home

by camel (via)
The Enomalism Virtualized Management Console (VMC) is a powerful web-based systems administrator management tool for the XEN hypervisor. Geared toward hosted environments, Enomalism provides an easy to use interface to provision hundreds of concurrent isolated Virtual Private Servers (VPS). Multiple physical servers can be managed as a single server using a specialized tool set which include a centralized user provisioning system, virtualized server creation wizard and templates which facilitate virtual server configuration, application deployment mechanism, and integration into 3rd party applications via web services API as well as centralized software patch management.
