Darmstadt Workshop on Storage Management in Linux

Aug 15, 1999, 21:04 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Matthew O'Keefe for this announcement. ]

The University of Minnesota GFS Group and T-Nova (formerly Deutsche Telekom) are jointly holding a workshop in Darmstadt, Germany on September 6-7, 1999.

A key enabler for Linux in the enterprise is storage management software (SMS), including journaled file systems, logical volume managers, RAID software, backup and recovery utilities, and storage networking infrastructure. The energetic Linux hacker community has been very active in this area, and has recently been joined by large OEMs like SGI and HP and storage management software specialists like Veritas.

In this 2-day workshop we propose to review the current state-of-the-art in SMS software. We have attracted the leading developers from the Linux hacker community as well as these leading OEMs. In particular, the first technical details regarding SGI's port of XFS to Linux will be revealed at this meeting. We believe that SMS in Linux is evolving very rapidly, and that Linux limitations in this area are being addressed. Leading users are exploiting Linux for managing large storage systems, and their experience will help lead the way to future improvements.
