How To Modify Your Gnu/Linux Box To Serve As A USB Over IP Server

Filed under

There was a long time that I was looking for a way to put away my old CRM server! But why? Because I had installed a virtualization environment with Xen and all my servers are turned to small VPS on a nice pretty infrastructure. The base point was that the CRM had a USB/Lock and there was no way to take the lock under a virtualized VPS. This tutorial shows how you can set up a USB-over-IP server.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS On Ubuntu 9.10

Filed under

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Ubuntu 9.10. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

He was due to be sentenced Friday afternoon. Read more
