In this article I will mention the steps to mount an ISCSI target on two ubuntu machines and then cluster it using oracle clustered file system.

OCFS2 + ISCSI Centralized storage in Ubuntu 10.10

The newly mounted partition can be used as a centralized storage location in High availability, Failover or load-balancing setup. The step by step howto is provided below, 1) Setup an ISCSI Server using Openfiler and create SAN LUN, and assign the IP to it. For setting up openfiler based ISCI target, you can refer steps 1 to 8 mentioned in the url pasted below. 2) Setup two servers with Ubuntu 10.10 in it.

Using OCFS2, A Clustering File System

Traditionally in Linux, if you wanted to access a file system from more than one machine you would mount it on one machine, and then export it to the others via NFS, CIFS or something similar. This is a stable, mature and well documented procedure, but it does have its downsides. Performance is not great, there can be locking issues, there are potential security implications and worst of all you have a single point of failure. If your NFS server goes down, all clients immediately lose access.

Luckily, there is another way to accomplish this task. Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Ubuntu 12.04 (Initiator And Target) Version 1.0 Author: Falko Timme Follow me on Twitter Last edited 10/01/2012 This guide explains how you can set up an AoE target and an AoE initiator (client), both running Ubuntu 12.04.

Using ATA Over Ethernet (AoE) On Ubuntu 12.04 (Initiator And Target)

AoE stands for "ATA over Ethernet" and is a storage area network (SAN) protocol which allows AoE initiators to use storage devices on the (remote) AoE target using normal ethernet cabling. "Remote" in this case means "inside the same LAN" because AoE is not routable outside a LAN (this is a major difference compared to iSCSI).

How To Build A Low Cost SAN. Krishna KumarApril 9, 2009 In today's world there is a obvious need of information sharing in every department and network storage can help us to achieve this most growing challenge.

How To Build A Low Cost SAN

Here in this article we are focusing our concentration to make a San which has following features: Low cost and easily affordableEnsured ScalabilityHigh ReliabilityEasily ManageableHigh PerformanceEnsured SecurityHigh availability. Use AoE to Build Your Own SAN. When I first heard of the ATA over Ethernet (AoE) protocol, I got excited about the possibilities.

Use AoE to Build Your Own SAN

Sending ATA commands directly over an Ethernet physical layer offers tremendous simplicity, flexibility and low overhead that potentially could result in astonishing performance. As the rumors of official acceptance into the Linux kernel grew louder, I waited with bated breath. I believed this would be game-changing for the storage market. When it made its way into the official kernel tree and 2.6.11 was released in early 2005 with built-in AoE support, it was all I could do not to stand up and cheer.

AoE: L’alternative SAN crédible Horoa – La voie est libre

Les acteurs sont nombreux sur ce marché mais les technologies, elles, se comptent sur les doigts d’une main. Je vous propose de nous intéresser à une technologie de plus en plus appréciée, hier encore considérée en marge: ATA over Ethernet. L’augmentation générale de la capacité des machines et d’internet, les besoins changeants, la virtualisation des systèmes x86… tout ça n’est pas fait pour aider les admins à construire, déployer et maintenir une architecture de stockage en toute sérénité. Il existe une multitude de solutions, proposées par des acteurs du marché plus ou moins convaincants, mais quasiment toutes sont basées sur les deux mêmes technologies: Le Fiber ChannelLe iSCSI Ces technologies ont longtemps été considérées par beacoup, comme LE chemin à suivre, parfois de façon aveugle.

A l’évidence, aucune de ces solutions n’apporte de réponse à l’ensemble des besoins. AoE, wide open. Simple is beautiful. Construire un SAN LowCost avec le protocole AoE (ATA Over Ethernet)
