Hughes Systique Corp. > Research & Innovation > Newsletter > Issue 2 > mySQL – A typical MySQL cluster requires at least 4 nodes for deploying a High Available MySQL database cluster. The typical configuration of any enterprise application is a 2 Node solution (Active-Standby mode or Active-Active Mode). This is where the real challenge lies: in fitting the MySQL Cluster Nodes in the 2 Nodes offering the application services and then making it work in the configuration without a single point of failure.
Corosync / Pacemaker – Execute script on failover – Raymii.org – With Corosync/Pacemaker there is no easy way to simply run a script on failover. There are good reasons for this, but sometimes you want to do something simple. This tutorial describes how to change the Dummy OCF resource to execute a script on failover. In this example it is a script which triggers a few SNMP traps, sends an alert to Nagios and sends some data to Graphite. SNMP alone could be done with the ocf:heartbeat:ClusterMon resource, but the other stuff not.
UrBackup – Client/Server Open Source Network Backup for Windows and Linux – UrBackup is an easy to setup open source client/server backup system, that through a combination of image and file backups accomplishes both data safety and a fast restoration time. File and image backups are made while the system is running without interrupting current processes. UrBackup also continuously watches folders you want backed up in order to quickly find differences to previous backups. Because of that incremental file backups are really fast. Your files can be restored through the web interface or the Windows Explorer while the backups of drive volumes can be restored with a bootable CD or USB-Stick (bare metal restore). A web interface makes setting up your own backup server really easy.

Passwordless – A node.js/express module for token-based logins – Token-based authentication middleware for Express & Node.js [...] Passwords are broken.

Mounty for NTFS – A tiny tool to re-mount write-protected NTFS volumes under Mac OS X Mavericks in read-write mode.
tinc wiki – tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that uses tunnelling and encryption to create a secure private network between hosts on the Internet. tinc is Free Software and licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2 or later. Because the VPN appears to the IP level network code as a normal network device, there is no need to adapt any existing software. This allows VPN sites to share information with each other over the Internet without exposing any information to others.
AIXchange: More Resources for AIX Newbies – As I've noted previously, there are more newcomers to the AIX platform than you might imagine. A company may acquire an AIX system through a merger or replace an old Solaris or HP-UX box with a current IBM Power Systems model. As a result, one of their IT pros suddenly becomes the AIX guy. So, now what? How does an AIX newbie get up to speed with virtualization and AIX?

Spark | Open source IoT toolkit – You want your connected product to be smart, right? Give it an operating system designed for the Internet of Things. Spark OS is a distributed operating system, where servers in the Cloud do the heavy lifting. That way your product can handle complex, intelligent behaviors when it's online, even with only kilobytes of memory.
Atraci/Atraci · GitHub – Atraci is an application for Windows, Mac and Linux that lets you listen instantly to more than 60 million songs (way more than iTunes's 26 million). It requires no sign up, displays no ads and is 100% safe.
dalen/puppet-puppetdbquery – This module implements command line tools and Puppet functions that can be used to query puppetdb. There's also a hiera backend that can be used to return query results from puppetdb.
nedap/puppetboard – Puppetboard is a web interface to PuppetDB aiming to replace the reporting functionality of Puppet Dashboard.
spotify/puppetexplorer – Puppet Explorer is a web application for PuppetDB that lets you explore your Puppet data. It is made using AngularJS and CoffeeScript and runs entirely on the client side, so the only backend that is needed is PuppetDB itself and a web server to share the static resources.
tmux for MobaXterm | techslaves.org – An old friend meets a new friend: tmux for MobaXterm! In a previous sysadmin life, I used tmux to good effect. Today, I’m using a Windows 8.1 system as my primary work desktop and recently got into MobaXterm for my Linux/terminal/X11 needs. While my most common usage scenario for tmux is invoking it on a remote server/VM instead of directly on my local machine, I thought it would be a good exercise to install tmux for local usage on MobaXterm and sharing that work by creating a plugin.
