    Linux and Open Source Cloud Price 0.99  |  0.99 Rewards Points

    The Linux kernel abstracts all hardware into a consistent virtual interface. In addition Linux supports multi-tasking execution in a manner that is transparent to user processes. Each process can act as though it is the only process on the computer, with exclusive use of main memory and other hardware resources. The kernel actually runs several processes concurrently and is responsible for mediating access to hardware resources so that each process has fair access while inter-process security is maintained.

    Case Studies Price 0.99  |  0.99 Rewards Points

    One of the major requirements of cloud installation is the high speed internet without any blockage of firewalls. We start the cloud installation by the following steps:
    • To install OpenStack cloud first select the Linux OS. Devstack method supports only Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise), Fedora 20 and CentOS/RHEL 6.5. OpenStack also runs and is packaged on other flavors of Linux such as OpenSUSE and Debian.
    Install the respective operating system. We use Ubuntu 12.04 in this case study.
    • In the first step update the Ubuntu operating system by this command. It downloads all the required packages.
