With all the buzz around Docker, I wanted to learn more about running Docker in Eucalyptus as an instance. In this video series, we will look at various ways to run containers inside Eucalyptus. We will also explore some good practices.
In the next series of posts and videos we will take a look at the journey of one our community members. He started with a single machine running Eucalyptus 4.0, then added a few canned images. From there he started to build his own images using Packer.io from ISO and then customized these images with additional software packages. With the usage increasing of the single Cloud-in-a-Box (CiaB) machine, it was time to increase the capacity by adding more compute power or Node Controllers (NC).
Note: Most of what is here is not original thinking by me but a collaboration and I wanted to capture this journey as this would be a great path for anyone to follow.
I’ve tried to capture the basic steps in this video. There is a lot more to explore but after viewing the video you should have a good sense of how to use Packer.io to add additional software packages to your cloud images.
In this video we will show how to build a Eucalyptus Cloud Image (emi) from the Linux distributions ISO file. In particular we will be using Packker.io to build a CentOS 6.5 emi. The same instructions can be used for CentOS 6 & 7, Debian 7, Fedora 20, OpenSUSE 13 and Ubuntu 12.04 as they stand.
What I’ve tried to do is capture these instructions on video to show how all of this comes together and show another part of our journey to running a Eucalyptus Cloud using the FastStart installer and providing instructions for what’s next once you have a running cloud.
In the previous videos, we installed Eucalyptus 4.0 using the one line installer “FastStart”. Now we need some images to use. In this video we will demonstrate how to quickly add prebuilt images to the Eucalyptus 4.0 FastStart Cloud.
As the usage of our cloud increases, we need to add additional compute capacity or node controllers (NC). From of single machine Cloud-in-a-Box Eucalyptus 4.0 FastStart we will increase the capacity by adding 5 additional machines.
In this video, we will install Eucalyptus 4.0 FastStart on the machine we prepared in Part I. We will also introduce a few command line tools, launch a couple of instances and take a quick look at the new “Management Console”.
