Kevan Benson
Details

Unison is a file synchronization utility for UNIX and Windows that allows very easy file synchronization between two hosts (or with a slightly more complex config, more) over socket, IP, or tunneled over SSH. Supporting two way replication, Unison is ideal for situations where changes are often made to both systems that need to be synchronized.

This talk will cover general features and use cases of Unison, including a case study for using Unison as the core architecture for the files in a multi-server web cluster.

Jason Cook
Details

Ganglia is a scalable distributed monitoring system for high-performance computing systems such as clusters and Grids. It is based on a hierarchical design targeted at federations of clusters. It leverages widely used technologies such as XML for data representation, XDR for compact, portable data transport, and RRDtool for data storage and visualization. It uses carefully engineered data structures and algorithms to achieve very low per-node overheads and high concurrency. The implementation is robust, has been ported to an extensive set of operating systems and processor architectures, and is currently in use on thousands of clusters around the world. It has been used to link clusters across university campuses and around the world and can scale to handle clusters with 2000 nodes.

In addition to Mike’s talk outlined below, we will be holding elections for SoCoSA board members. There are 5 seats and the board elects offices (like president) from amongst those elected to the board, so if you want to help out with the group, you should send an email to discuss@socosa.org nominating yourself for the board.

Mike will be mainly talking about Citrix Presentation Server (now named XenApp.)

Approximate outline:

  • Citrix and its Technology
  • The “Farm” Concept
  • Servers
  • Applications
  • Connecting

Citrix XenApp is a Windows application virtualization and delivery system that manages applications in the datacenter and delivers them as an on-demand service to users anywhere using any device.
