October 8 meeting - Linux High-Availability

Linux is a very popular choice for server applications, but many businesses require extremely high availability. For example, phone companies require "five nines" of availability. That's 99.999% uptime.

Sure, my desktop PC might go a month or two between reboots. But how do you ensure that your Linux-based application is available ALL the time?

"Linux HA" is a set of tools that allows you to cluster several Linux systems together to provide a very high level of availability. When one system is not responding, the next one takes over.

SImon Karpen and Eric Blau will show us how all of this Linux HA magic works. Eric develops databases that are used by cellular telephone companies to route telephone calls, so he knows first-hand that Linux HA works well.

We would also like to thank Tekelec for sponsoring this month's meeting.

December Podcast

The December Podcast, audio from Daniel Chen's June talk on Ubuntu Dapper Drake, is now available via the feed http://www.trilug.org/podcastogg.

In the interest of simplifying the production of the TriLUG Podcast, the m4a format podcast is no longer available. However, the podcast is now available in the equally patent-encumbered format mp3. That feed is available at http://www.trilug.org/podcastmp3. The m4a feed will continue to be updated until the mp3 feed shows up in iTMS. Given some technical limitations of converting and encoding the podcast, patent-encumbered versions maybe a short-lived phenomenon. I'm looking for feedback on this.

A few additional notes about the podcast...

This is the first podcast featuring our new intro and "outro" featuring the voices of past meetings, specifically Paul Unbehagen (Web 2.0), Daniel Chen (Ubuntu), Tanner Lovelace (CA Cert), and Jason Faulkner (Nagios).

The program is produced with open source software, particularly Audacity.

The intro and outro music is "Good Thoughts" by the Sim Redmond Band. Used with permission.

Questions, comments, and high praise can be sent to mfrye @ trilug dot org. Enjoy!
