Linodes in Xen

Es ist offiziell - Xen ist jetzt live bei Linode. Es war ein langer Weg, tatsächlich fast vier Jahre, aber mit Hilfe unserer Community hat das jüngste Beta-Programm endlich bewiesen, dass Xen einsatzbereit ist.

Was bedeutet Xen für Sie? Xen hat weniger Overhead im Vergleich zu UML. Xen Linodes haben 4 Prozessoren. Sie unterstützen Kernel-Module. Sie unterstützen 32- und 64-Bit-Kernel. Wir laufen mit der neuesten Xen Version (3.2.1), was bedeutet, dass wir paravirt_ops Kernel (pv_ops) unterstützen können, was bedeutet, dass wir Kernel neuer als 2.6.18 haben können (die viele unserer Konkurrenten Sie zwingen, zu verwenden). Kurz gesagt, Linodes werden unter Xen viel, viel schneller sein.

Von hier an wird alle neue Host-Hardware mit Xen bereitgestellt. Neue Accounts sollten auf diesen Maschinen landen, aber es besteht immer noch die Möglichkeit, dass eine neue Linode auf einem UML-Host landet. Wenn das passiert, oder Sie bereits auf einem UML-Host sind und umziehen wollen, reichen Sie einfach ein Ticket ein. Wie auch immer, es ist nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis alle unsere Maschinen auf Xen laufen - wir werden den Upgrade-Zeitplan in den nächsten Wochen bekannt geben.

    […] (which was painless, but required about an hour of down time). It turns out that all of linode is now going to Xen. Based on very simple latecy tests, the box feels much snappier on serving up wiki […]

    As someone who has been running in the test environment, let me just say it’s fantastic. Of course, the couple times I’ve needed Linode support, it’s been great as well. Thanks for all the hard work, guys!

    Will my ip addresses change if/when I move from UML to Xen? What about the private backend ip; will that one change?

  4. Tom Asaro

    @Harmone Your IPs remain the same as long as you stay within the same data center.

    This is great news. Looking forward to faster Linodes under Xen and the upgrade schedule. Thanks for all the hard work guys!

    @tasaro:

    That sounds lovely. Thanks for everything!

    Will beta Xen users be migrated to the “production” deployments in the future?

  9. Tom Asaro

    Xen beta hosts will be at the top of the upgrade schedule (which is simply a reboot of the host).

    tasaro:

    Weren’t different plan sizes mixes on the beta hosts (ie, host56)? If so, do any migrations need to be made?

    What kernel should we use after we have migrated to a Xen host? There are a few named “dev ..”. Are they “beta” kernels?

  12. Christopher Aker

    @Harmone You should use “Latest 2.6” unless you have a good reason not to.

    @Jacob On the Xen beta boxes, we’ll eventually move the Linodes of different plans onto their respective host server types. If you want to move off sooner submit a ticket. You shouldn’t notice that much of a difference, since we’re using the cpu scheduling to prioritize the larger Linodes. Again, this is only for the participants of the beta test. New accounts are still segmented onto a host that matches their plan.

    I moved my Linode from UML in Atlanta to a Xen node in Fremont this past week (after having physically relocated myself to the west coast). My new DNS records were propagated by the time all of my data was transferred (~5hrs).

    Big thumbs up to the folks at Linode for a very smooth transition!

    So if I can run a 64-bit kernel, how would I upgrade my Debian system to 64-bit? Didn’t realise it was a 64-bit capable environment!

  15. Christopher Aker

    @Simon Rumble: I’m still hacking on 64 bit Xen guest kernels, but it shouldn’t be too much longer. But yes, our environment will support both.

    It’s been mentioned elsewhere that custom kernels may be supported at some point.

    Is it possible that at some point native kernels would also be supported, where the host machine has hardware virtualization? This would be very cool in that it would allow standard installs of Linux distros, and would avoid some of the weirdness when Linode’s kernels aren’t quite the in sync with vendors’s kernels/modules/userspace tools.

    I’ve been on Xen for two months, and understand why the beta is now concluded. I’ve only had one issue, a hard crash on Dallas52, and not only was it caught and recovered…

    But Linode’s staff quickly submitted enough data to get a patch from upstream.

    Hi ,

    I want to move my Linode from UML to XEN. Is there any risk of data loss or corruption during this migration. How much down time should I expect? Is it possible to time the move during night times when website is less busy?

    I also want to keep the same IP address. If possible do not erase the linode on UML for one or two hours after migration so that I can copy and replace any corrupted files or data. It will also allow some time to test the application.

    I will submit a ticket for the same. But I hope replies to these queries here will help others as well.

    Webmaster,

    I migrated my linode today and must say “WOW”. Simply amazing, without any problem. I see huge improvement in performance. Thanks Linode so much!

    How can I check whether I am on UML or Xen?

    When I’m logged into the Dashboard I can see a Xen icon on the top banner when on a Xen profile, this doesn’t show when for a UML one.

    […] couple things changed in the last year. Linode went from UML to Xen, which definitely makes each linode more powerful. My shared hosting company stopped being helpful. […]
