Modern service providers use virtualization in order
to feasibly scale their applications. Their approaches exploit
virtual machines to master the quality of service requirements,
primarily redundancy, reliability and security. Accordingly, the
services provided are hosted in data centers that fulfill the customers’
needs. The standards of entry burden small enterprises
by requiring them to establish their own distributed service delivery
cloud. Therefore, we developed an energy-efficient solution,
Hypriot Cluster Lab (HCL), that adapts Docker technologies
in order to run on ARM powered single board computers.
Herein, we demonstrate how HCL works with redundancy and
replication between several hosts on different locations via wide
area networks. Accordingly, we use a mesh network based on
virtual private LANs to enable encrypted communication over
the Internet between distributed hosts. Our result presents a
fault tolerant, reliable and secure extension to connect several
independent hosts with HCL to achieve the QoS-requirements.
