Hi folks, if you missed Red Hat Summit 2017 last week, it was great time in Boston. As promised, I’m uploading my presentation on HA for RHV-M 4.1 – hosted engine. Although, I’m doing it a little differently this time. I took the time this week to actually re-record it including the demos! This way you get a flavor of how I actually presented it last week.It turned out a little shorter in the re-recording, as it only clocked out at about 30 minutes and my session was about 10 minutes longer. But it’s all good. I walk through what hosted engine is, how it compares to standard deployment, why you would care if RHV-M goes down, and how to actually deploy hosted engine.
The embedded demos walk through the deployment of RHVH, the deployment of hosted engine via Cockpit, then a forced failover courtesy of a guest Velociraptor. Ok, not really, I just yanked the power on the underlying host.. but watch the demo anyway..
(best viewed in full screen, give it a moment to get in focus..)
One of the things that I really tried to emphasize in both the original presentation and the re-recording is that while hosted engine is a great solution, your end use case should determine whether or not it’s the best layout for your particular environment.
As always, your comments and questions are welcome!
hope this helps,
