Our presentation for September 14th will be
“How to Cheat and Win with
Clustering for Fun and Profit”
Linux is the current king of the high performance clustering market.
We’ll give a short history of clustering with Linux and talk about ways
to build an enterprise class cluster on a shoestring budget.
Bio: Vernard Martin is a founding member of ALE and a Senior Problem
Wrangler for the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University

Linux longer than any sane human being would admit to and recently
retired from being a graduate student at GA Tech. He lives in Atlanta,
GA with with his cat Lietenant and of course, his own baby cluster.
Some general background on Linux clustering may be found at
the Linux Clustering Information Center:
Meeting time is 7:30pm to ~9:30pm

We will be shooting from the hip this month doing some playing around with Cacti and network monitoring tools. Very loose and informal as always.
