Your OpenStack / CEPH experience?

Alex's company is re-designing their cloud solution, and would like to utilize OpenStack + CEPH (Storage) / KVM (VM) / OVS (Networking). He's wondering if anyone has experience with these stacks, and any suggestions on how to find / engage relevant communities to help them navigate tricky technical issues? They are aiming to develop extended cloud solutions (beyond VM), targetting Cloud Phone, VM, Secure Container, DBaaS etc., hence the desire to work with the big/complex frameworks like OpenStack. Alex dismisses several comments about OpenStack being too complicated, and suggestions for simpler solutions, because of the need to develop a full-blown public cloud provider setup. Are you experienced in such a setup? Share your knowledge in the thread.

SEO: Guest Blogging

Paul asks if guest blogging on other websites for backlinks is a good idea? Does he need to look at possible sites that have a higher DR than his own to increase his DR? His concern is that once he posts the guest blog it will be removed after a short time and his DR will drop back as a result. Back in the day, guest blogging was a one of the most important methods of inccreasing a site's visibility and search ranking, with some going to the extent of creating PBNs (Private Blog Networks), spread across providers and networks to avoid detection, where they would create an array of sites linking back to the sites they wished to promote. PBNs still exist and offer backlinks at a price. Is this still a good idea or are search engines now discounting this type of networking? Voice your opinions in the thread.

News from around the hosting industry

Our Industry News section is the place to find current headlines from around the world of hosting and infrastructure, but other general interest threads pop up in other sections of the forum, especially The Lounge. Here we we highlight just some of the interesting news items from around the forum:

  • Cogent now owns former Sprint long-haul fiber network - Cogent has completed the acquisition of T-Mobile's Wireline Business, including the non-U.S. extensions. The price of the deal was not disclosed. They said it expected the T-Mobile wireline business to "complement and eventually replace Cogent's current leased network" as well as enable Cogent to "expand its product set, including the sales of optical wave transport services to new and existing customers." Sprint was one of the first companies to provide long-distance service and over the years expanded and upgraded its fiber network and branched into other wholesale and enterprise services.
  • Microsoft and Oracle consider sharing AI servers - The server shortage affecting AI software companies has led to the cloud rivals discussing an unusual agreement. The two firms recently discussed renting servers from each other if either company runs out of computing power for cloud customers that use large-scale artificial intelligence. Oracle Cloud can apparently run complex machine-learning models more economically than Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud. The prospective deal would expand upon a previous agreement from 2019 allowing customers to run computing jobs across both Microsoft’s and Oracle’s clouds. The two firms built optical cables connecting their data centers so customers could transfer data between them.
  • VIRTUS expands to Europe via Berlin - The UK data center firm has announced expansion to continental Europe constructing its first data center outside of the United Kingdom. VIRTUS BERLIN1 will consist of four buildings with a total of at least 90 MVA of incoming power and is set to go online in 2026. The data centers will be designed to serve hyperscale, government and enterprise customers and will provide a range of hosting and cloud services. VIRTUS is part of the ST Telemedia Global Data Centres Group.
  • Skybox and Prologis to build Austin data center campus - They plan to build a 600MW data center campus near Austin, which has become a destination for hyperscale data centers and cloud platforms. The massive new campus will offer up to four million square feet of data center space and is adjacent to a 345 kV transmission corridor. It will offer two private 300MW dedicated substations, making it one of the most scalable data center campuses in the country. The new data center campus is scheduled for service next year.
