  • 10. Architecture
  • 11. NodesPhysical machineFault tolerance not requiredAdded/removed at will from clusterNo data loss with loss of node
  • 12. InstancesVirtual machine that runs on theclusterfault tolerant/HA entity within cluster
  • 13. Instance ParametersHypervisor (called hvparams)General (called beparams)Networking (called nicparams)Modified via instance or clusterdefaults
  • 14. Disk templatedrbd : LVM + DRBD between 2 nodesplain : LVM w/ no redundancyfile : Plain files, no redundancydiskless : Special purposes
  • 15. IAllocatorAutomatic placement of instancesEliminates manual node specificationhtoolsExternal scripts used to compute
  • 16. ComponentsAutomatic allocationhbal : Cluster rebalancerhail : IAllocator scripthspace : Cluster capacity estimator
  • 17. Primary & Secondary conceptsInstances always runs on primaryUses secondary node for diskreplicationDepends on disk template (i.e. drbd)
