Subject: [svlug-announce] SVLUG July 1st meeting (tomorrow): "Xen: A View
	from the Trenches"

WHEN:

  Wednesday, July 1st, 2009 (tomorrow)
  7pm-9pm

MAIN PRESENTATION:

  TOPIC:
    Xen: A View from the Trenches 

  PRESENTED BY:
    Luke S. Crawford, Prgmr.com

  TOPIC SUMMARY:
    This talk is a light overview of virtualization technologies with
    a more in-depth look at Xen, given by and targeted towards the hands-on
    system administrator. Topics will include:

    * Virtualization and consolidation: Buzz aside, what are my choices
      for consolidation, and what are the trade offs between the
      different virtualization technologies, and consolidating without
      virtualization?
    * Virtualization and server management: What tools does
      virtualization enable that can make the sysadmin's job easier?
    * What about virtualization can make the sysadmin's job harder? How
      many of these benefits can I get without shared storage? If I do
      have shared storage, what added benefits can virtualization give
      me?
    * Overview of the Xen hypervisor and device architecture: What does
      the sysadmin need to know, and how to get good I/O performance out
      of a virtualized system?
    * Protecting and fairly allocating resources: How to give people
      what they are paying for? We will go over the sysadmin-level
      details of fairly allocating RAM, CPU time, network bandwidth, and
      disk bandwidth, in environments where users are not always
      cooperative, and where some virtual servers should be allocated
      more resources than others. 

  ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
      Luke S. Crawford (http://prgmr.com/~lsc/) has been working with 
      Xen in a production environment since late '05, renting virtual 
      private servers to people from all over the Internet at Prgmr.com
      (http://prgmr.com/).

      He has also spent significant time with larger corporations, 
      helping to virtualize the corporate environment. Luke and Chris 
      Takemura are nearing completion of The Book of Xen
      (http://nostarch.com/xen.htm), to be published by No Starch
      Press in September 2009. 

LOCATION:

  Symantec
  VCAFE Facility
  350 Ellis Street (near E. Middlefield Road)
  Mountain View, CA 94043

POST-MEETING GATHERING:

  selection at the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you there!
