The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) is celebrating 15 years serving
the greater Sacramento area!

  January 20, 2014
  7:00pm - 9:00pm


  presented by John Mark Walker, GlusterFS Community Leader, Red Hat

  GlusterFS is an open source, distributed file system capable of scaling
  to several petabytes (actually, 72 brontobytes!) and handling thousands
  of clients.  GlusterFS clusters together storage building blocks over
  Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect, aggregating disk and memory
  resources and managing data in a single global namespace.

  GlusterFS is based on a stackable user space design and can deliver
  exceptional performance for diverse workloads.

About the speaker:

  John Mark Walker has travelled extensively to build local technology
  communities, establish relationships with partners and customers,
  and develop global communities that scale.  Specializing in grass roots
  marketing, he has developed an eye for identifying and nurturing community
  contributors into becoming leaders and evangelists in their own right,
  allowing communities to benefit from the network effect and a larger
  center of gravity.

Anniversary celebration:

  This meeting marks the 15th anniversary of LUGOD's formation, in
  January 1999.  We shall celebrate with free pizza, snacks and cakes,
  and free give-away prizes!

This meeting will be held at a special location:

  Veterans' Memorial Center
  Club Room
  203 East 14th Street
  Davis, CA 95616
