Abstract: Modern service providers use virtualization for a feasible scalability
of their applications.
Their approaches mainly exploit virtual machines to stem the quality of
service requirements, especially redundancy, reliability and security.
Accordingly, provided services are hosted in data centers, which are
able to fulfill the needs.
The standards of entry burden small enterprises to establish their own
distributed service delivery cloud.
Hence, we already developed an energy-efficient solution, called Hypriot
Cluster Lab (HCL).
It adapts Docker technologies in a way that it runs on ARM powered
single board computers.
Forthwith, we demonstrate how it works with redundancy and replication
betwixt several hosts on different locations via wide area networks.
Accordingly, we use a mesh network based on virtual private LANs to
communicate encrypted over the Internet between the distributed hosts.
In our demonstration we present a fault tolerant, reliable and secure
extension to interconnect several independent host with HCL to achieve
