Often clients ask us about a p99-metrics (the 99th pertsentil).
It is definitely reasonable request and we are going to add similar functionality to VividCortex (I will tell about it later). But at the same time, when clients ask about it, they mean something absolutely certain — something that can be a problem. They ask not the 99th pertsentil on some metrics, they ask a metrics on the 99th pertsentilyu. This commonplace for such systems as Graphite, but all this yields not that result which from such systems is expected. It is a post will tell you that, perhaps, you have incorrect representations about pertsentil, about exact degree of your delusions and about what all of you can make correctly in this case.

When you work in a hosting company most of friends and acquaintances, all the issues concerning a hosting are resolved through you. It allows to be in a trend of the last innovations, and also not only to increase the skills, but also to keep them in a tone. As soon as special problems of children became difficult to be solved on a hosting server, as a rule due to the lack of an opportunity to set necessary software for work of this or that script, I thought of the inexpensive virtual server at once, especially they at us appeared. Also we understood that it will be simpler to work with the server via the convenient web interface, and the good control bar will be as-@-as, by the way. And if it is also free, then we will be only in plus. Without hesitation, opened the browser and began to google free control bars a hosting.
Understanding that studying of everyone will demand time, I decided to ask also council our experienced administrator on what I received the short answer:
But the head of technical department allowed expect the answer enough:
These are not really popular in our circles.
Here so there was my first acquaintance to one of the most popular free control bars a hosting in a RuNet — Vesta CP. I would like to tell you as the solution of objectives leads not only to writing of tutorials, but also allows to get acquainted with interesting people who put the heart and soul in that business which are really brought to them by pleasure.

Among three previous configurations of Small/Medium/Large in architecture of FlexPod Express one more appeared under the name Cisco UCS-Managed. In this article the speech about this new configuration will go. FlexPod Express and FlexPod Datacenter are divided into two main types of connection: direct connection of SHD to servers (between SHD and servers there is no switch) or via the switch (between SHD and servers there is a switch), I will remind that Fabric Interconnect is not the switch, but part of the UCS domain of servers.
It should be noted several important differences of a new configuration from previous three.
First in architecture there were Fabric Interconnect, let also performed by the internal devices installed in the UCS Mini chassis with blades.
Secondly in architecture the possibility of direct connection of SHD to Fabric Interconnect appeared, earlier between servers and SHD there shall be a switch. At the same time the switch had to be only Nexus (3048/3500/9300).
In the third if we have a configuration of FlexPod Express Cisco UCS-Managed with direct connection, the switch for connection of ultimate users shall not be Nexus. Now it can be any standard switch maintaining fault tolerance on similarity of Multi Chassis Etherchannel. But if between UCS and FAS the switch is necessary, then the switch is obliged to be Nexus.

Today almost in each company which is actively using IT for business support there is the data processing center (DPC). Increase of requirements to reliability of DPC – one of tendencies of the market.

At the beginning of December in London at the European Discover conference the HPE company provided the first results of the Synergy project on creation of solutions for creation of "Arranged" (composable) of IT infrastructure in which it is possible quickly (in several minutes) to unroll as traditional server applications (ERP systems, databases, servers of e-mail MS Exchange, etc.), and the new applications which are specially written for work in the cloudy environment. The Synergy project is the following stage of evolution of convergent infrastructure which department of corporate products of HP used several years in the integrated systems. The arranged infrastructure of HPE is based on three key elements:
— Flexible pools of resources: computing, data storage and network — providing uniform infrastructure for expansion of different operational loads: physical, virtual and containers;
— The program defined logic on the basis of use of templates;
— The unified API interfaces providing simple and convenient integration of the Arranged Infrastructure of HPE with any platforms of management and providing cloud services.
The concept of the arranged infrastructure is implemented in the HPE Synergy system which beginning of deliveries is planned for the second quarter of the next year. Beta testing of Synergy will take place in the first quarter 2016, and participants of the London Discover could see this system in a forum demo zone.
