Several Aspects of Virtual Network Creation

Rick Ramsey has gathered five posts on virtual networks by various hands with the intent of making it easier for users to decide which type of virtual network to create. The posts are:

  • "How Networking Works in Virtual Box" by the Fat Bloke

  • "Evaluating Oracle Solaris 11 from Inside Oracle VM Virtual Box" by Yuli Vasiliev

  • "Looking Under the Hood at Networking in Oracle VM Server for x86" by Greg King and Suzanne Zorn

14 Feb 2013 Network Virtualization and Network Resource Management [29780]
Part 5 of Virtualization Series by Detlef Drewanz

Detlef Drewanz has posted part 5 of his series on virtualization, defining and discussing the features of internal and external network virtualization and network resource management in this segment. Drewanz explains the features that are part of virtualization products, calling them the "glue" that binds all the VMs, zones, and containers together and enables them to communicate among themselves and with the outside world. He then recommends the employment of several types of network resource management tools, including constraints, scheduling, and partitioning.

06 Feb 2013 Solaris 11: Basic Tool for Building Your Developer Cloud [29684]
Behind the Scenes in Designing the Developer Cloud for OPN Gold Members

Oracle Solaris 11 is the foundation for the developer cloud designed for OPN Gold members who use it to qualify their applications on Solaris 11, Orgad Kimchi posts. This cloud platform provides an intuitive user interface for VM provisioning by selecting VM images pre-installed with Oracle Database 11g Release 2 or Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, he continues, noting the inclusion of simple file upload and file download mechanisms. Several Solaris 11 cloud technologies were employed in the building of this platform, such as Oracle Solaris 11 Network Virtualization, Oracle Solaris Zones, ZFS encryption and cloning capability, and NFS server inside Solaris 11 zone.

26 Jan 2013 How to Set Up a Hadoop Cluster Using Oracle Solaris Zones [29495]
OTN Article by Orgad Kimchi

This "article"] starts with a brief overview of Hadoop and follows with an example of setting up a Hadoop cluster with a NameNode, a secondary NameNode, and three DataNodes using Oracle Solaris Zones.

The following are benefits of using Oracle Solaris Zones for a Hadoop cluster:

  • Fast provision of new cluster members using the zone cloning feature
  • Very high network throughput between the zones for data node replication
  • Optimized disk I/O utilization for better I/O performance with ZFS built-in compression
  • Secure data at rest using ZFS encryption

24 Jan 2013 Improvements in Image Packaging System for Oracle Solaris 11 a Welcome Change [29487]
Tightly Integrated, Single-tier Packaging/ Patching Architecture Eases Administrative Tasks

The Image Packaging System (IPS) for Oracle Solaris 11 is a single tier packaging architecture that replaces the previous SVR4-based dual tier packaging and patching architecture. Gerry Haskins sees it as a stellar element of the OS, leveraging ZFS Root (/), Boot Environments, SMF, Zones, and other Solaris technologies. Monthly consolidated bug fix Support Repository Updates (SRUs) now provide a regular predictable cadence of bug fix release baselines, greatly simplifying patch management. In his overview of the IPS Haskins identifies a number of the more common Solaris 11 / IPS issues that he, as a novice user, has encountered in since the release.
