Recap of Gluster Community Day at USENIX LISA

Gluster
November 5, 2013

orange-ant-250px Yesterday we had the opportunity to run a Gluster Community Day at USENIX LISA in Washington D.C. Turns out it was well worth the time, as we had a fantastic group turn up for some really excellent talks.

The crowd wasn’t large, but it was clearly a group that was interested in GlusterFS and associated projects, like puppet-gluster. Having the right crowd is almost always better than having a big, but disinterested, crowd.

Planned to write up a post to summarize the event, but it looks like James Shubin has beaten me to the punch with a fantastic post on The Technical Blog of James. Be sure to check out James’ post, and if you’re interested in Gluster, Puppet, and other technical goodness, put his blog’s feed in your favorite reader. (He’s also on Twitter as @purpleidea.)

Many thanks to the attendees for turning up, and to Wesley Duffee-Braun, Eco Willson, and James for giving some fantastic talks and Gluster wisdom.

Don’t forget, we also have a Gluster Birds of a Feather (BoF) here at LISA on Thursday. Join us at 8:00 p.m. in the “Hoover” room.
