A friend of mine sent me a link to a new project that aim to provide a HTML5 client for the Spice protocol (http://www.spice-space.org/page/Html5). He asked me to check if I can access my VMs under RHEV with my iPad.
I took the snowy weekend to play with the new release of RHEV 3.1. This new release come with an impressive set of new features, including the removal of the requisite of Internet Explorer! Also included (and to be reviewed in a future post) is the possibility to use a Gluster based storage with RHEV!
I just run into a weird problem today when I was in the process of migrating a bunch of servers from an old HP SAN to a shiny new EMC VMAX.
The client have chosen to use Powerpath for the multipathing software on RHEL 5. The servers in question run multiple Oracle databases into a grid configuration. We had no problem with the old SAN and we had no problem with the new EMC VMAX using dm-multipath.
Red Hat has released the first public beta for RHEV 3 in the last week or so. I didn’t have time to play with it since yesterday, waiting for the rest of Irene to strike my city.
So, I grabbed the documentation, go through it rapidly and start the installation on a spare server I have at home. The first thing to notice is how wonderful it is to just “yum install rhevm”! Seriously, compare that to the need to install Windows 2k8, Active Directory, .Net, etc, etc… This is a major step up for RHEV.
Drôle de titre pour un blogue qui est censé parler d'informatique, j'espère juste que je ne serais pas référencé sur le site http://www.oilq.org/. Faut dire que j'ai rédigé plusieurs billets ces derniers temps que je n'ai jamais publié.
