    Xen: A View from the Trenches 

    Luke S. Crawford, Prgmr.com

    This talk is a light overview of virtualization technologies with
    a more in-depth look at Xen, given by and targeted towards the hands-on
    system administrator. Topics will include:

    * Virtualization and consolidation: Buzz aside, what are my choices
      for consolidation, and what are the trade offs between the
      different virtualization technologies, and consolidating without
    * Virtualization and server management: What tools does
      virtualization enable that can make the sysadmin's job easier?
    * What about virtualization can make the sysadmin's job harder? How
      many of these benefits can I get without shared storage? If I do
      have shared storage, what added benefits can virtualization give
    * Overview of the Xen hypervisor and device architecture: What does
      the sysadmin need to know, and how to get good I/O performance out
      of a virtualized system?
    * Protecting and fairly allocating resources: How to give people
      what they are paying for? We will go over the sysadmin-level
      details of fairly allocating RAM, CPU time, network bandwidth, and
      disk bandwidth, in environments where users are not always
      cooperative, and where some virtual servers should be allocated
      more resources than others. 

      Luke S. Crawford (http://prgmr.com/~lsc/) has been working with 
      Xen in a production environment since late '05, renting virtual 
      private servers to people from all over the Internet at Prgmr.com

      He has also spent significant time with larger corporations, 
      helping to virtualize the corporate environment. Luke and Chris 
      Takemura are nearing completion of The Book of Xen
      (http://nostarch.com/xen.htm), to be published by No Starch
      Press in September 2009.

  We've tried our very best for these directions to be accurate.

  If you just can't get enough, a smaller group usually goes to a local
  restaurant/diner after the meeting.  We'll announce the restaurant
  selection at the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you there!
