Reduction in a Land of
VMs and Small Devices

presented by
Brian MacLeod

Synopsis:
– Files everywhere, multiple computers in rooms, and a network that keeps
falling behind the times. Sounds like your workplace, right? For many
of us, this also describes our home.
– This maddening mix led to a reformulation of my digital home life that
scraps old servers and desktops for Virtual Machines and network “appliance”
devices to restore sanity, reduce power consumption, and improve reliability.
Armed with a little common sense and tools from the Linux sysadmin world,
engineering a better solution comes into reach.
:: Tools mentioned: NFS, Ansible, CFengine, SSH, OpenVPN
:: Tech level: beginner, overview

Bio:
– Brian MacLeod is a Systems Engineer with PACE at Georgia Tech, working
on OS management, storage, and backup infrastructure for researchers
to use in their computing needs.
