“Virtualization Management For The PHB
Using Pretty Screens With Pointy Clicky Interfaces”
with Jim Kinney

Synopsis:

and cloudmin, and demonstrate how they can be used for
both simple and enterprise-scale virtualization management.
Short-failings of each will also be moaned over.

Bio:
–- James (Jim) Kinney became a zealous fan of Linux and
Liberated Open Source Software the first time he saw a
discarded Next Cube running Slackware in 1992. In the
20 years since his introduction to Linux & FLOSS goodness,
James transformed his obsession into a career. First at Emory
University where he taught physics, converted their computer
lab to Linux and helped co-found LUGE, the Linux Users Group
of Emory. Next followed a 10+ year stint as an entrepreneur
Linux & Open Source consultant. Notable projects included
the installation of 40+ Linux servers running 2000+ student
stations in Atlanta public schools, server upgrade work at
Google, systems integration for a travel booking company,
and consulting for Cox Communications
– Currently Jim works with the Internet Security Systems
group of IBM along side some [other] really bright people
who are actively involved in protecting all aspects of
critical path communications (despite any MicroSoft
products in the pavement).
