Playing with Open vStorage and Docker - Open vStorage BlogOpen vStorage Blog:
Very interesting article on how to get vStorage up and running under Docker within VirtualBox. I managed to get a single node up easily but there were a few errors on adding the second node. vStorage seems to be a virtual storage solution that's able to replicate across disks, servers and locations while supporting compression, dedupe and encryption.
The line 'gzip -dc ovshc_unstable_img.tar.gz | docker load' should read 'gzip -dc ovshc_unstable_img.tar.gz | sudo docker load' and the URL to access the GUI should read https://IP_Address_of_VM.
Starting the second node seems to hang on the command 'sudo ./ovscluster.sh join ovshc2 10.250.0.2/16' hung with the status 'Status: Downloaded newer image for docker.openvstorage.org/ovshc/unstable:latest4417288f5ad21f5577e3fb4fe6ba25f4af0e71c277ab4d2cf554521c517469e6' and nothing else seems to happen after this.
I'd really like to see a tutorial to set this up on a physical Ubuntu server with RDMA but I can't seem to leave a comment on the blog. :(
Good article though, and thanks!
