Master the skills you need to build a rock-solid virtualization environment with the all new Proxmox 4 About This Book Formulate Proxmox-based solutions and set up virtual machines of any size while gaining expertise even on the most complex multi-cluster setups Master the skills needed to analyze, monitor, and troubleshoot real-world virtual environments This is the most up-to-date title on mastering Proxmox, with examples based on the new Linux Kernel 4.2 and Debian Jessie (8.x) Who This Book Is For The book targets Linux and system administrators and professionals working in IT teams who would like to design and implement an enterprise-quality virtualized environment using Proxmox.Knowledge of networking and virtualization concepts is assumed. What You Will Learn Install the basic Proxmox VE nodes Get to know the Proxmox Graphical User Interface (GUI) See and understand Proxmox's internal structure and mechanics Create and manage KVM- or LXC-based virtual machines Understand advanced virtual networks Leverage the power of the built-in Proxmox firewall to provide protection at any level Configure high availability Proxmox nodes Learn different backup strategies and to restore a VM in the event of a disaster to ensure data safety Monitor a Proxmox cluster and all of its components using Zabbix Plan large virtual environments for mission critical virtual environments Work through real-world scenarios to troubleshoot Proxmox In Detail Proxmox is an open source server virtualization solution that has enterprise-class features to manage virtual machines, to be used for storage, and to virtualize both Linux and Windows application workloads. You begin with refresher on the advanced installation features and the Proxmox GUI to familiarize yourself with the Proxmox VE hypervisor. You then move on to explore Proxmox under the hood, focusing on the storage systems used with Proxmox. Moving on, you will learn to manage KVM Virtual Machines and Linux Containers and see how networking is handled in Proxmox. You will then learn how to protect a cluster or a VM with a firewall and explore the new HA features introduced in Proxmox VE 4 along with the brand new HA simulator. Next, you will dive deeper into the backup/restore strategy followed by learning how to properly update and upgrade a Proxmox node. Later, you will learn how to monitor a Proxmox cluster and all of its components using Zabbix. By the end of the book, you will become an expert at making Proxmox environments work in production environments with minimum downtime. Style and approach This book walks you through every aspect of virtualization using Proxmox using a practical, scenario-based approach that features best practices and all the weaponry you need to succeed when building virtual environments with Proxmox 4.

Install and configure a pfSense router/firewall, and become a pfSense expert in the process. Key Features You can always do more to secure your software – so extend and customize your pfSense firewall Build a high availability security system that’s fault-tolerant – and capable of blocking potential threats Put the principles of better security into practice by implementing examples provided in the text Book Description pfSense has the same reliability and stability as even the most popular commercial firewall offerings on the market – but, like the very best open-source software, it doesn’t limit you. You’re in control – you can exploit and customize pfSense around your security needs. Mastering pfSense - Second Edition, covers features that have long been part of pfSense such as captive portal, VLANs, traffic shaping, VPNs, load balancing, Common Address Redundancy Protocol (CARP), multi-WAN, and routing. It also covers features that have been added with the release of 2.4, such as support for ZFS partitions and OpenVPN 2.4. This book takes into account the fact that, in order to support increased cryptographic loads, pfSense version 2.5 will require a CPU that supports AES-NI. The second edition of this book places more of an emphasis on the practical side of utilizing pfSense than the previous edition, and, as a result, more examples are provided which show in step-by-step fashion how to implement many features. What you will learn Configure pfSense services such as DHCP, Dynamic DNS, captive portal, DNS, NTP and SNMP Set up a managed switch to work with VLANs Use pfSense to allow, block and deny traffic, and to implement Network Address Translation (NAT) Make use of the traffic shaper to lower and raise the priority of certain types of traffic Set up and connect to a VPN tunnel with pfSense Incorporate redundancy and high availability by utilizing load balancing and the Common Address Redundancy Protocol (CARP) Explore diagnostic tools in pfSense to solve network problems Who this book is for This book is for those with at least an intermediate understanding of networking. Prior knowledge of pfSense would be helpful but is not required. Those who have the resources to set up a pfSense firewall, either in a real or virtual environment, will especially benefit, as they will be able to follow along with the examples in the book.
