Greetings All,

The next exciting meeting of CALUG will be Wednesday November 13th from
6:30 until 9PMish. Our guest speaker will be Eric Sproul giving us an
introduction to the ZFS file system. 

ZFS combines the features of a filesystem, volume manager and RAID
subsystem into a single storage system that provides pooled storage
with immense capacity, provable end-to-end data integrity, snapshots,
transparent compression/decompression, and much more.  This talk will
be primarily a high-level overview of ZFS features and concepts to
help users and administrators understand the many benefits that ZFS
provides over traditional storage stacks.

Eric Sproul is an engineer at OmniTI, where he works on OmniOS (a
distribution of illumos) and is responsible for release engineering
and deployment automation for Circonus, a SaaS platform for
monitoring, visualizing and alerting on IT and business data.

The meeting will take place at OmniTI, located in Fulton, MD. The
address is 11830 West Market Place Fulton, MD 20759. The building is
near the Harris Teeter, easily seen from the road. When you approach the
HT head on, the OmniTI office building is to its right.

We'll be using the back entrance which is surrounded by plants which
will lead directly to the meeting room.

Be sure to show up from 6:30 until 7 for pizza provided by Praxis
Engineering and socializing. We'll start the meeting about 7pm.
