Now that we are growing strong as a community, I figured that it was time to update the introductory post.

WELCOME to the Linux Data Storage community my fellow Linux (and open source) aficionados!

We have built up this community to encourage both novice and experts alike, in the field of data storage and how it relates to open source technologies. While this community is geared primarily toward Linux, you are still invited to post related non-Linux open source topics.

If your interests are filesystems, data backup / recovery, portable & LAN based storage, there is a section for you....and plenty more. There is also a section for more advanced topics ranging from RAID, Logical Volume Management, etc.

Our only guidelines to posting topics and or comments are as follow:

* Please post topics under their appropriate category.
* No spamming allowed.
* Please be respectful of others when posting topics / comments.
* Racially offensive, abusive, obscene, profane or otherwise socially unacceptable language, literal or implied, and pejorative name-calling (expressed or implied) are prohibited at all times.

Canonical and Juniper Networks are partnering up to mix the OpenStack cloud with Contrail to make an open-source cloud-based software-defined network stack. Interesting times ahead for telecomm and datacomm data-centers!
Summary:Can a Linux company and a networking power join forces to make an open-source cloud and software defined network that's good enough for telecommunications data-centers? Canonical and Juniper think so.

High-Availability Storage with HA-LVM - In recent years, there has been a trend in which data centers have been opting for commodity hardware and software over proprietary solutions. Why shouldn't they? It offers extremely low costs and the flexibility to build an ecosystem the way it is preferred. The only limitation is the extent of the administrator's imagination. more>> http://ow.ly/2Vdk4M

Microsoft Adopts International Cloud Privacy Standards

Although it has had its fair share of bad headlines in the past concerning #privacy  - Microsoft recently announced it will become the fist major #cloud  provider to adopt the International Standards Ogranization's (or ISO) cloud privacy standards.

According to the #microsoft  blog post that announced the news, this means that: Users are in control of their data: users will know what’s happening with their data; Microsoft will provide strong #security  protection for your data; users data will not be used for advertising; and that they will inform users about government access to data.

And as +Engadget notes:

The pledge is partly symbolic -- Microsoft already follows a lot of these principles. However, the standard puts that promise into writing, and gives other companies (not to mention governments) a privacy model they can follow. There's no certainty that your cloud data will be much more secure as a result, but wide adoption of the standard could eliminate a lot of the uncertainty surrounding privacy when your files change hands or cross borders.

Microsoft knows that you probably don't trust it completely with your sensitive info, especially if you live outside the US. What assurances will you ge
