First Non-Sun Bug Fix for Open HA Cluster

I'd like to thank Abhilash, a student at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus in India for working on the first bug fix contributed to Open HA Cluster by someone not employed by Sun!

Some other university students in India have shown some interest in OHAC as well, and written about it here, here, and here. It's nice to see the slides I wrote getting used!

Hi,

I would like to do more in clustering, I am working on another one.I am also trying to rope in some juniors to work on it. I would like to have a road map for bringing more people to work on it in our campus. The problem is students feel it is a very difficult topic. Is there any way to train them in the basics of clustering? ie there has to be some hands on sessions. I am planning to give a talk on clustering for the FOSS event that is going to be conducted at our campus. Can you please give me some suggestions as to how to make it look easy ie how can I explain to them in plain simple words about the different aspects of clustering? I have prepared some slides and I am working on it. Please do mail me you suggestions.

I would also like to know whether I can get to do an internship at Sun in the Sun cluster group.

Sincerely,
Abhilash

Hi Abhilash,

Thanks for your continued interest in Open HA Cluster!

HA Clustering can be a difficult topic, but the basic concepts are pretty simple. Here are some slides from a presentation I did last year: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/ie-osug/meetings/13/OpenHACluster.pdf

I guess you've talked to some folks in Sun India about contributions and internships. If you'd like me to put you in touch with anyone directly, contact me offline (nicholas dot solter at sun dot com)
