Debian Managing Xen With Xen-Tools, Xen-Shell, And Argo
Post date: November 5, 2006, 15:11 Category: System Views: 1758 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This guide describes how to install and use xen-tools, xen-shell, and Argo on a Debian system. All three packages provide useful tools for the administration of virtual Xen machines. Xen-tools is a collection of Perl scripts that allow you to easily create, update, and delete Xen guest domains. The xen-shell provides a command-line interface to owners of Xen domains so that they can manage their Xen domains without the help of the server administrator. And with Argo, you can control Xen domains through a web interface or through a menu on the command line.
Debian Virtualization With Xen On Debian Lenny (AMD64)
Post date: February 8, 2009, 07:02 Category: Installing Views: 993 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen on a Debian Lenny (5.0) system (AMD64). Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other (e.g. a virtual machine for a mail server, a virtual machine for a high-traffic web site, another virtual machine that serves your customers' web sites, a virtual machine for DNS, etc.), but still use the same hardware. This saves money, and what is even more important, it's more secure. If the virtual machine of your DNS server gets hacked, it has no effect on your other virtual machines. Plus, you can move virtual machines from one Xen server to the next one.
Debian Creating A Fully Encrypted Para-Virtualised Xen Guest System Using Debian Lenny
Post date: May 3, 2009, 05:05 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 635 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This document explains how to set up a fully encrypted para-virtualized XEN instance. In this howto, the host system is running Debian Etch, while the guest system to be installed will be using Debian Lenny. If you are concerned about your privacy, you might want to consider using hard disk encryption to protect your valuable private data from spying eyes. Usually, the easiest way would be to use your distribution's installer to set up a fully encrypted system; I think most recent Linux distributions support this. However, when you are using XEN to provide virtualization, there are situations where you might not want to encrypt your whole computer with all guest instances, but instead only encrypt one OS instance. This howto will deal with exactly this situation. It assumes that the XEN host system is already up and running.
OpenSUSE HowTo: Install configure KVM Virtualization & run Guest OSes in openSUSE
Post date: September 30, 2008, 16:09 Category: Emulation Views: 1566 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is a Linux kernel virtualization infrastructure. KVM is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions Intel VT (vmx) or AMD-V (svm). It consists of a loadable kernel module, kvm.ko, that provides the core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module, kvm-intel.ko or kvm-amd.ko. KVM also requires a modified QEMU although work is underway to get the required changes upstream.
OpenSUSE Install and Configure VMWare Server virtualization in openSUSE

Tutorial quote: VMware Server is a free virtualization product for Windows and Linux servers. VMware Server is a robust yet easy to use server virtualization product and is based on proven virtualization technology. Learn how to install configure and use VMware server in openSUSE
Ubuntu Creating Virtual Machines With vmbuilder On Ubuntu 8.10
Post date: December 16, 2008, 06:12 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 1196 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: vmbuilder is a tool (introduced on Ubuntu 8.10) that allows you to build virtual machines (with Ubuntu as the OS) for multiple virtualization techniques. Currently it supports Xen, KVM, VMware Workstation 6, and VMware Server. You can afterwards copy the virtual machines to another system (a Xen, KVM, VMware Workstation 6, or VMware Server host) and run them there.
Debian The Perfect Xen 3.0.3 Setup For Debian Sarge
Post date: October 22, 2006, 14:10 Category: Emulation Views: 2091 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions about how to install Xen (version 3.0.3) on a Debian Sarge (3.1) system. It shows how to compile Xen, dom0 and domU kernels from the sources as well as how to install Xen from precompiled binaries. Creating guest domains from images is also covered by this article.
Debian OpenVZ On Debian Etch For Webservers
Post date: December 26, 2006, 15:12 Category: System Views: 998 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Virtualization is a good practice for servers, since it makes things more secure, scalable, replacable, and replicable, all this at the cost of little added complexity. This guide was written during an install of a Supermicro machine with two dual-core opterons (64-bit), two identical disks (for RAID) and a load of memory. Why OpenVZ and not XEN or the recent KVM kernel module? Well, XEN is not very stable for 64-bit architectures (yet), and it comes with quite a bit of overhead (every VM runs its own kernel) due to its complexity. KVM is very simple but restricts you to run a kernel as one process, so the VM cannot benefit from multi core systems.

CentOS Managing OpenVZ With HyperVM On CentOS 5.2
Post date: February 5, 2009, 06:02 Category: Installing Views: 1563 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: HyperVM is a multi-platform, multi-tiered, multi-server, multi-virtualization web based application that will allow you to create and manage different virtual machines each based on different technologies across machines and platforms. Currently it supports OpenVZ and Xen virtualization and is available for RHEL 4/5 as well as CentOS 4 and CentOS 5. This tutorial shows how to install it on a CentOS 5.2 server to control OpenVZ containers. I will also explain how to manage OpenVZ containers with HyperVM on a remote CentOS 5.2 server ("slave").
