Upcoming LinuxLA meetups!

We're hoping to see everyone at this Thursday's meetup - Data backup, disaster recovery, and server redundancy by Louie Sadd and Ara Adjamian, Co-Founders of Datastream:

Data backup, disaster recovery, and server redundancy are all part of a successful business continuity strategy. The FailSafe™ Appliance by Datastream provides local full system image backups every 5 minutes, sends the images offsite to bicoastal datacenters, and provides instant on-site and off-site virtualization for true business continuity. The FailSafe™ appliance means downed servers are a thing of the past, with downtime virtually eliminated


On December 6, we'll be hosting Greg Farnum of InkTank, who has been working on the Ceph Project ( since it was at DreamHost . An official announcement with more details will be released soon, so save the date!


Also, we don't have a date set yet, but early next year plan to learn more about Deployment Objects - the brainchild of Dave Thomas, DevOps Specialist. He spoke at the DevOps meetup a couple weeks ago (the video can be found at and he will be giving an update on his project once it is ready to go.

Introducing Deployment Objects
Deployment Objects is a tool that employs grammars, events, orchestration, and a rich domain model to solve distributed deployment and maintenance problems.

Did you bring collection of scripts with you when you started your last job?  I took the last few months off to start a project ( to bring together everything I learned about DevOps in the last 5 years, and although pre-alpha, the project is ready to see the inside it's first real company.  In this brief talk I share some creative ideas on how to fill the gaps and achieve the goal of automating everything.  I hope to provoke a lively discussion on what methods people are using to solve these problems and interest potential contributors.


Please let me know if you have more ideas for topics or if you'd like to speak at an upcoming LinuxLA meetup. Hope to see you all soon!
