Microsoft + Open Source “How To”: Load Balancing Highly Available Linux Services on Microsoft Azure with OpenLDAP and MySQL

Posted by Jose Miguel Parrella

Continuing our “how to” series of demos, I’m sharing another example of how you can deploy a full range of open and community-driven OS and software solutions on Microsoft Azure.

In the below video, I’ll use connected Linux virtual machines and Microsoft Azure load balanced sets to show you how you can clusterize services like OpenLDAP and MySQL. I’ll also show how to use readily available open source tools like DRBD, Corosync and Pacemaker to create a shared-nothing highly available architecture and Azure CLI as a STONITH resource.

Any other interoperability scenarios you'd like to see? Please let us know in the comments!
