We're pleased to announce the next meeting of the Silicon Valley Linux
Users Group!  This month's speaker is a very special guest.  


WHAT:

  openMosix: Kernel-Level Linux Clusters

WHEN:

  Wednesday, 5 February, 7pm-9pm or so.

WHO:

  Moshe Bar
    Tel Aviv University, United Nations ICTP, Qlusters Inc. Palo Alto,
    Italian National Physics of Matter Institute Lab for Atomic Research


BACKGROUND:

As clusters are expanding from their traditional HPC (High Performance
Computing) domain into business applications, single-system-image
clusters are gaining fast in importance.  openMosix has in a very short
time gained thousands of installations around the world and enjoys an
enthusiastic and strong developer community.  In this talk Moshe Bar will
explore the internals of openMosix, the technology's application fields
and sample uses.


ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Moshe Bar is the former co-project manager of MOSIX and the current 
project manager of openMosix.  He has authored several books on the 
Linux kernel and clustering and is co-author with Karl Fogel in the 
classic CVS book "OpenSource Development with CVS".  Moshe has been a 
senior monthly columnist at BYTE for the last four years and wrote 
regular kernel columns in the past for Linux Journal and other 
publications.  In 2001 Moshe Bar became CTO of Linux clustering 
start-up Qlusters, Inc.

Moshe has a M.Sc and Ph.D. in computer science and teaches advanced 
operating systems topics at Tel Aviv University and at the United 
Nations Atomic Agency research institute ICTP in Triest, Italy.  He is 
furthermore a permanent researcher at the Italian National Institute of 
Particle Physics.


WHERE:

Cisco Building 9.  The land of NUMBERS.  The VINEYARDS conference
center.  The side we are on is the Silver Oak/Jordan conference rooms,
where a large Cisco fountain is usually not turned on.  Directions on
how to get there are listed at:

        http://www.svlug.org/directions/cisco-9.shtml

We've tried our very best for these directions to be accurate.  If you
have any improvements to make, please let our Web Team know!
web-team at svlug.org

NOTES:

It's best if you arrive close to on time, as otherwise there may not
be someone posted at the door to let you in.  After the speakers end
their presentation there is usually a Q&A session, time for job
seekers and employers to meet, and often a few door prizes.  When the
meeting is over people are encouraged to chat a bit, but also to exit
the building so Cisco can lock up.  Don't worry, a lot of us go to
dinner afterward so there's plenty of time to chat outdoors or
offsite.

We look forward to seeing you there!
