Install Architecture for a Distributed Bare-Metal Networking Hardware
Submitted by Thejdeep (@tejdeepg) on Sunday, 14 February 2016
Sharing all the bits and pieces of learnings gained while I interned at Cisco in the summer of 2015 where I worked on building an open-source install architecture for distributed bare-metal hardware that would be generic enough to be used by other big players.
Things I would like to talk on while I outline the steps to create such an architecture :
1. Why an open install architecture
4. RPM : Handling all the pitfalls
5. Choosing the right filesystem
6. More on BTRFS
7. Snapshots and Rollbacks
9. Using the above concepts and building the tool
My name is Thejdeep. I am a final year Computer Science undergrad at National Institute of Technology Karnataka Surathkal. I have had the chance to work with Flipkart and Cisco previously as an intern. At Flipkart, I was part of the web performance team where I worked on optimizing the load times of the website. At Cisco, I was more into building a generic network preloader. Other than these, I have previously contributed to open-source organisations such as Mozilla and Duck Duck Go. All code I write is up on GitHub. I believe that code belongs to everyone. Cheers !
