The February 2007 meeting of Washington DC Linux user group will take
place on Wednesday, February 21, 2007 at 7pm.
Andy Fenselau from the Symantec Data Center Management Group (formerly
Veritas) will discuss evolving Linux workloads in the data center and
their needs for storage virtualization. Topics will include different
architectural approaches, use cases and deployment best practices,
performance optimization, dynamic storage tiering, and some sneak
previews of Symantec's coming integration of its volume manger, file
system, and multipathing technologies into Xen-based workloads.
The meeting location is our usual 2025 M street, NW in downtown DC.
There will be signs in front of the building. The location is within 3
nearby Metro stops, both on the red (Dupont, Farragut North) and
blue/orange (Farragut West, Foggy Bottom [a bit of a hike]) lines.
Parking in the area is available for approximately $5; there's even
parking in the building itself. Street parking is free after 6:30pm,
but scarce. There's a parking lot at 23rd St. between M and L that is
not enforced after 7pm (people have successfully parked there for
years---no one we know was ticketed or towed yet, but it could happen).
The meeting dates for the rest of the year 2007 are: Mar 21, Apr 18,
May 16, Jun 20, Jul 18, Aug 15, Sep 19, Oct 17, Nov 21 and Dec 19.
