February 8th 2010: ZFS / btrfs / Petabytes on a budget

The next WYLUG meeting is on Monday the 8th of February 2010 at Old Broadcasting House.

This month we have a talk from Tom Hall.

Tom will be giving an update to his ZFS talk of 2 years ago, recapping
that talk and introducing shiny new features that have appeared since. He will also look at btrfs and discuss why though the feature list is similar, underneath it is quite a different beast.

He will be announcing a new project to build the Storage Pods from a design released by Backblaze mid last year and a brief survey of clustered filesystems/high availability solutions to try and get robust file and block level storage on commodity hardware.

The talk will start 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.

Old Broadcasting House
148 Woodhouse Lane

  1. Jack says:

    Will there be slides/video available of this talk?

  2. Hi Jack,

    I have put the talk at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2039069/ZFS_WYLUG.odp , sorry, only just saw your request.

    I bit off more than I could sensibly chew in the talk I think and dont put all the info in the slides which is better for those there but makes the slides less of a resource (IMHO)

    I did not talk about sheepdog at the end either…
