Tim has been busy organising the next Irish OpenSolaris users group meeting -
To: [ug-ieosug] 13th Irish OpenSolaris User Group Meeting From: Tim Foster Tim.Foster at Sun.COM Date: Wed Aug 1 08:42:29 PDT 2007 Hi all, I'm happy to announce the 13th Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting: Topic Discovering Open High Availability Cluster Date Tuesday August 14th Time 7:00pm onwards Location TBD This month, we're lucky to have Nick Solter, from the Open HA Cluster community visiting Dublin who will give us a talk about Open HA Cluster, which forms the basis of one of the newer communities on opensolaris.org. Solaris Cluster, Sun's high-availability cluster software, is going open-source! This presentation will first give an overview of High Availability software and Solaris Cluster, and demonstrate how Open HA Cluster can be used with OpenSolaris and the Apache webserver to provide higher availability for web services. Nick's talk will next describe the open-source roadmap, give an overview of the source code, and walk through the steps to download, compile, install, and play with Open HA Cluster and Cluster Express. The talk will conclude with a description of the contribution process and some sample projects for community participation. As usual we'll also be doing the roundup of news since our last talk, and will be adding audio from this meeting to our podcast feed. More info at: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/ie-osug We \*don't\* yet have a venue for this meeting, so if you'd like to host it, please drop a mail to this list [ I'm actually out on vacation from Monday for 2 weeks, but will of course be at the meeting on the 14th and will try to monitor this list in the meantime: so please could someone finalise the venue for the group - otherwise, I'll assume we're at meeting at the Sun offices in East Point as per last month. ] I'd also like to take this opportunity to poll for talks or speakers for our September meeting - if you'd like to talk about anything OpenSolaris-related on Sep 25th, we want to hear from you. If you're looking for an excuse to visit Ireland, here's your chance - we'd love to have you present a talk to the user group, and will do our best to show some Irish hospitality! See you all then!
