Utility Operating System
azad client needed a utility operating system to provision storage resources for virtual machine hypervisors in a high-density managed server environment. Requirements expanded through the course of the project, eventually including several capabilities not originally anticipated.
azad Approach & Solution:
The azad consultant created following high-level requirements for the project:
azad Consultant worked with internal and external team members and contributors distributed in different locations and countries to meet the above high-level requirements and to define the types and extents of the low-level capabilities needed for the project, including disk partitioning, file system creation, a Linux clustering stack and clustered LVM. Also, the azad consultant brought the necessary software components into the project's build environment and integrated them together, adapting the project as low-level requirements evolved.
The azad client now has a Linux-based utility operating system in an ISO image smaller than 30MB that successfully accomplishes the task at hand and can be enhanced to perform additional tasks that may be defined in the future. Also, because the new project is coherent with the pre-existing “Linux From Scratch” infrastructure, components of this project could be ported back to the original infrastructure if that is needed.
