I'd like to setup a fresh root server and install a linux based virtualization on it.
My thoughts are on:
- Intel VTs Hardware
- Ubuntu 9.10
- KVM based virt.
The access to the root server will only be SSH for Administration. Has anybody done this before, what was your glues discovered in the daily use?
My requirements are:
very secure, so the root server only has ssh to the dom-0 and minimalistic ports for the guest (e.g. http/s).
good monitoring of host/guest (my idea is to using zabbix for it)
- easy and fast administration (how are the command line tools working for you? cryptiv? high learning curve?)
I'm pleased to learn from your suggestions.
