Cardiff System Administration Mash up
By user12625760 on Jan 28, 2009
Big thank you Clive for arranging and Cardiff University for hosting the System Admin Mash up today. I was paritcularly pleased to have 100% of the Cardiff OpenSolaris User group present and to hear of people exploring COMSTAR on Thumpers to produce high performance OpenStorage at a very affordable price.
Lewis gave an excellent overview of the VSCAN & CIFS server with some brave demostrations using VirtualBox to host servers and clients. If you can persuade him to repeat it then do so.
However good though that was, for me, that was not the highlight of the day. That goes to Gwent Police Crime Forensics Unit who gave a excellent and and informative presentation about the challenges and successes of investigating issues around computer forensics. As storage devices get bigger the problems can only increase.
