Subject: [svlug-announce] SVLUG General Meeting on Wednesday,
	July 11th: Drobo, the World's First Data Robot

Join the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group (SVLUG) this coming Wednesday
to learn about Drobo, the World's First Data Robot.

WHEN:
 Wednesday, July 11th, 2007
  7pm-9pm

MAIN PRESENTATION:

  TOPIC:
Richard Sharpe will introduce Data Robotics's Drobo, the world's first data 
robot. Drobo is a USB storage device that allows users to mix and match up to 
four SATA drives of different sizes, and allows for easy upgrading, all while 
protecting the user's storage. After a demonstration of its capabilities, he 
will then talk about how a Drobo can be used with open source operating 
systems like Linux and FreeBSD. The management protocol that allows a host to 
interact with Drobo will be explained, plus strategies for dealing with the 
fact that Drobo changes size will be suggested in the context of Linux.

PRESENTED BY:
Richard Sharpe,
Data Robotics, Inc.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Richard Sharpe is a software engineer at Data Robotics, Inc. Prior to Data 
Robotics, he worked at Mu Security and Panasas. He has also been active in
