1. Introduction to Free Software

We start of with our regular discussion on the concepts and philosophy of the Free Software Movement and related topics.

2. Agenda : Gluster (High availability)

The Gluster architecture aggregates compute, storage, and I/O resources into a global namespace. Each server plus attached commodity storage (configured as DAS, JBOD, or SAN) is considered to be a node. Capacity is scaled by adding additional nodes or adding additional storage to each node. Performance is increased by deploying storage among more nodes. High availability is achieved by replicating data n-way between nodes.

3. Technical Presentation : Miniature computing device installation

Miniature Computing device configuration and installation based on the latest popular product on which GNU/Linux can be successfully installed and used as a complete computing device.

4. Q&A Session

This would be used to answer doubts that users have concerning Free Software.

We look forward to your participation for this exciting meeting. Hope to meet you all on Sunday.

Thank You

Indian Libre User Group, Cochin
