Database Backup Solutions in Virtualization Platforms, Especially VMware vSphere

Virtualization platforms such as VMware vSphere or Linux KVM supporting large scale of virtual machines now. Even, virtualization platforms can host monster virtual machines as database server. At this post, we’ll review database backup solutions in virtualization platforms about advantages and disadvantages.

FC Port Aggregation (Trunking) 0

Fibre Channel (FC) Trunking (Port Aggregation) on Servers, How It’s Possible?

We are all knowing LACP on ethernet network but Fibre Channel and SAN network providing multipathing I/O by using logical and physical paths as single device on operating system and also using path selecting policies for using I/O paths optimized. But if server using 16Gb/s FC HBA, so there is no bandwidth aggregation. Server can generate bandwidth for each port up to maximum speed of port and also path selecting has performance impact of server when large paths are presented to server. Months before, I was thinking about FC port aggregation and did many searches but I didn’t find anything until now.

What’s MicroVM And Firecracker?

During virtualization revolution, physical servers replaced with virtual machines to run multiple different workloads on a single server hardware but virtual machines were still large and needs some resources to run as isolated servers. Virtual machines needs to have their own operating system and applications. Also they needs to manage and configure separately. MicroVM or Micro Virtual Machine offering benefits of two different technologies and Firecracker will help you to implementing MicroVM.
