Linux user group meeting Tuesday, August 11

Compute Clusters—Building Blocks of the Public Cloud,

This presentation and discussion will cover the architecture of compute clusters, long used to aggregate power of two to thousands of computers together. He will discuss what compute clusters are used for, cluster fabrics, cluster storage, management, handling node and fabric failures, the impact of virtual machines and containers (Docker, etc.), and their use in the public cloud will be covered. Examples of clusters in private and public use will be presented. Views of live scientific, engineering, and general purpose clusters will be shown.



Jeff Marraccini has been with Altair Engineering for 18 years in various IT roles. He manages a world-wide team taking care of computing, network, and related services for 2,200 staff across more than 40 sites. His team manages many computing clusters based on Linux distributions and Windows Server along with several storage back-ends.
Jeff resides in Troy, Michigan and his LinkedIn site is http://jeffmarraccini.com/. His e-mail is marraccini@acm.org.

Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and much more! We'll also be meeting for dinner at Red Lobster in Novi after the meeting.

Regular MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.

Our May Meeting's Topics Include:
DNS in the Enterprise
It's often been said that DNS is the phonebook of the Internet, but it's muuch more than that.  David Wood will explain how to setup Bind 9 as a master DNS server to host multiple zones and reverse zones. Slave server configuration will also be explained as well as cache-only and forwarders. David will also detail how to configure Bind for each case and how to secure the configuration. 
  
Bio: 
David is a Technical Account Manager at Red Hat. He spent years as a Red Hat Consultant and worked in the defense industry. He maintained infrastructure servers including DNS, Web, Proxy, and LDAP for over 5 years with a focus on Linux/Unix security.

Tarsnap
Tarsnap (www.tarsnap.com) bills itself as "online backup for the truly paranoid." Tarsnap's deduplication lets you compress your backups by a factor of hundreds or thousands to one, and the client-side encryption means that the service cannot leak your data even if they want to. All this gets wrapped up in a familiar tar(1) interface, in a service priced in picodollars per gigabyte. 
Bio: Michael W. Lucas is a critically-acclaimed author from Detroit, Michigan. He’s the “writes books” sort of author, not the “hire him to write your stuff” author. His non-fiction books include Networking for Systems Administrators, FreeBSD Mastery: Storage Essentials, Sudo Mastery, and Absolute OpenBSD, 2nd Edition. His latest book is "Tarsnap Mastery."

When
May 12th, 2015 6:30 PM   through   8:45 PM
Location
32737 W 12 Mile Rd
Farmington Hills, MI 48334

Optional Dinner Afterwards.
