The August 2011 meeting of Washington DC Linux user group will take
place on Wednesday, August 17 at 7pm.
Przemek Klosowski will talk about setting up an enterprise class storage
server on residential class budget. It turns out that it is surprisingly
hard, which is probably why the big guys can charge the prices that they
do. Przemek will talk about putting large numbers of disk in limited
space,connecting them to the computer and to the network, and setting up
a SAN or NAS server.
The meeting location is our usual 2025 M street, NW in downtown DC.
There will be signs in front of the building. The location is within 3
nearby Metro stops, both on the red (Dupont, Farragut North) and
blue/orange (Farragut West, Foggy Bottom [a bit of a hike]) lines.
Parking in the area is available for approximately $5; there's even
parking in the building itself. Street parking requires feeding the
meters until late in the evening. There's a parking lot at 23rd St.
between M and L that is not enforced after 7pm (people have
successfully parked there for years---no one we know was ticketed or
towed yet, but it could happen).
