July 13th: Matthew Bloch on virtualisation with KVM

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Everything you always wanted to know about virtualisation but were afraid to ask”. It’ll be a brief tour through the systems and networking concepts that a jobbing sysadmin ought to know before thinking about using virtualisation for the first time, and the software options available (though focussing on KVM).

Matthew Bloch is the Managing Director of Bytemark Hosting, a geeky UK hosting company specializing in Linux and virtualisation. His commercial software experience previous to Bytemark was in PC emulation and Java VM implementations, and he continues to work on systems-level code within the company, as well as supervising its day-to-day operations. As yet he has not achieved his ambition of becoming a rock-star games programmer.

The meeting officially starts at 7:00pm, but the room will be open for coffee, tea and chat from 6:30pm. Afterwards, we usually go to The Fenton pub, across the road from OBH, for more geeky chatter.
