This is what I want:
vms and other host-level machines (win, lin) access virtual fileserver
manage files with alfresco (can serve nfs, smb, ftp…)
just me for poking around, development on microservices sharing files and everything that’s currently on my laptop. and learning how to do it right should I actually need to build something like that.
This is what I have:
centos7 dual xeon quad 16g server as frontend and kvm host and lxc host
kvm vms and lxc
ext4 data partition on a raid0
scalability, transferability, performance wise, should I
a) setup my frontend as an nfs host, alfresco in an lxc using that nfs and gatewaying smb, ftp…
//but I want to have all the work done in the monitored space of sunstone
b) setup the new partition as an image datastore with TM shared, create a huge datablock device inside, mount that in alfresco in an lxc
//but doesn’t the image still get copied to the system datastore? this would seem such superfluous copying to and fro
c) somthing I haven’t come across yet (I’m new here)
//like persistently mount a host’s partition in an lxc? what context would I need to add to my template using lxcone?
any advice beyond the docs much appreciated!
