All IT People from around the world on March 31 of each year marks the International Day of Backup.

The backup day was established on the initiative of users of the social news site Reddit and was not randomly appointed on March 31. In the computer environment, there are known cases of information loss on April 1 (these are such “jokes”) – and there is even a whole group of viruses that are activated on that day. The result of their merciless action is a malfunction in the operation of the system or loss of information.

Cloud Storages and AcloudA

In recent years, more and more popular use of cloud technology. They are used in business processes, web hosting, telecommunications services, in software development and testing, for private use and much more. The main advantage of using cloud technologies and the reason for their ubiquitous distribution is the lack of the need to have a powerful computing system for the end user, which unambiguously leads to a significant cost reduction for business or ordinary end users. In addition, the cloud services provider takes care of the work of the system and applications, provides technical support to users, installs updates on its own and upgrades the computing servers and storage servers. Thus, the user is less concerned with technical issues related to the operation of the system and he can focus on his goals.

As part of the cloud infrastructure, cloud storages can be distinguished.

Building a Cluster based on VMware (part I)

To build a cluster, VMware uses from 2x to 32x ESXi servers that are managed using vCenter. To build a cluster, you also need a shared store. It can be implemented with VMware vSAN or with storage support providing access via Fiber Channel, iSCSI or NFS. The storage stores the virtual machine files that are available to all the cluster hosts at the same time. It is due to the overall storage and independence of the virtual machine from the physical platform that rapid migration/recovery of virtual machines is achieved.
