Oracle Linux Engineering Update
Todd Trichler, Oracle Technology Network
With the recent focus on Linux Storage & File Systems, I thought it
would be interesting to examine some of the work being done by
Oracle's Linux Engineering Team, in the areas of: clustering, data
integrity, virtualization and Linux stability and performance. For
each area we will try and answer the following questions: Why are
these improvements important? What is being done? Where to next?
We will also give a short demo of Oracle VM Server, a GPL'd Xen-based
server virtualization environment.
This will be followed by an post presentation pizza party, courtesy of
Oracle Technology Network (OTN) (at 'a place of your choosing').
About the Speaker:
Todd Trichler is an Oracle veteran of eight years, having worked
in alliances, product management, and marketing. As Senior Principal
Product Manager for OTN, he has been working closely with development
to drive Oracle's engagements with JUGs, LUGs, PUGs and other members
of the Java, Linux, and PHP technical communities.

New Venue Needed (Starting June)
Beginning in June, LUGOD will not be able to meet at the
Public Library for at least 12 months. (The library will be relocated
while the current facility undergoes renovation, so the meeting room
is unavailable.) If you can help provide a new location for us to meet
for the interim, please let us know! Contact Bill Kendrick, root at lugod.org.
The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)7 non-profit organization
