Sheepdog is a distributed storage system for KVM. It provides highly available block level storage volumes that can be attached to KVM virtual machines. Sheepdog supports advanced volume management features such as snapshot, cloning, and thin provisioning. The architecture of Sheepdog is fully symmetric; there is no central node such as a meta-data server. This design enables linear scalability in performance and capacity, no single point of failure, and easy administration. Sheepdog is distributed as an open-source software under the terms of the GPL.
This talk will show you how to setup a cluster of MySQL servers that use the MMM software to create the ability to have Master-Master Active-Passive failover. An explanation of the software involved and the structure needed, as well as an in-dept overview of what is needed will be given.
