Version 1.0

lecture: Ganeti


Ganeti is a system for managing clusters of virtual machines. The talk
will introduce Ganeti, its usage, and its architecture. The main focus
will be on changes and new development in the last year.

Ganeti is a management software for clusters of virtual machines based
on Xen, KVM or LXC. It is an open source project funded by Google
which has been around 7 years now. It has grown to the size of about
100,000 lines of Python and about 40,000 lines of Haskell code. Besides
being used in Google’s internal infrastructure, the project has a
lively open source community. Among our biggest users and contributors
are OSUOSL and GRNet.

In our talk, we will recall, in a self-contained way, the steps to set
up and maintain a Ganeti cluster, to monitor it, and to deal with
failures. We will also recall the architecture and the interfaces to
the utilized open-source components. The main focus of the talk will
be on changes and new features of Ganeti, predominantly those that
happened in the last year.
