This tutorial will have two parts. The first part will give some theoretical background, an introduction to the architecture of cloud management systems (Project FiFo), a quick look into each component, what they do, how they communicate, and the tradeoffs chosen.
In the second part we’ll build a small “cloud”. We’ll walk through a setup of Project FiFo until every participant has a running installation on their system. If time permits, we can join those to create a larger system and experiment with failover characteristics by disabling and destroying components.
