IBM eServer BladeCenter, Linux, and Open Source: Blueprint for e-business on demand

Every construction project relies on a few critical components. When building a house, the critical components include the foundation, plumbing, and electrical wiring. When building a computing environment, the critical components include a robust operating system, file, and network services.

This IBM Redbook takes a modular approach to building an e-business on demand infrastructure. It covers many topics including Linux installation on IBM eServer BladeCenter and IBM Fibre Array Storage Technology (FAStT) storage area network (SAN) storage. This redbook explains:




How to implement failover for core Internet services

How to use a single LDAP directory for Linux system accounts, Apache, Samba, Postfix, Sendmail, and Jetspeed

An implementation of load balanced services using Linux Virtual Server (LVS), and failover with Linux Heartbeat

How to install and configure critical file services using Linux, Network File System (NFS), Samba, and IBM FAStT storage

Practices for security, systems management, configuration, and performance



If you are looking to reduce the cost of your computing infrastructure, provide critical IT services, install Linux on BladeCenter blades, and install and configure SAN storage with Linux and BladeCenter, this redbook is for you.
