Building Virtual Machine Clusters


In this chapter, you looked at an abundance of cluster configurations inside VMs. While we covered configurations that are either available with their respective operating systems or free on the Internet, remember that many organizations use third-party clustering applications. With this in mind, to learn and practice clustering, a good practice is to install your organization’s specific products inside the cluster VMs. Of course, if you’re just looking to learn and play, we’ve provided plenty to keep you busy in this chapter.

Clusters and storage resources have much more potential when they’re attached to storage networks. You’ll look at how you can achieve this potential in Chapter 12.
