What we're about

BayLISA is the premiere system administration user group in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in the very early 90s after the fourth Large Installation System Administration (LISA) conference, BayLISA has supported and educated systems, network, storage, virtualization, and other technology professionals in the Bay Area for over 20 years.

We use Meetup to coordinate meeting attendance, announcements, and reminders. We have our official organizational presence on the web, including links to membership, sponsorship, and mailing lists, at www.baylisa.org (http://www.baylisa.org/).

Our legacy description:

One way to put it is that there are many user groups, but we are the sysadmins group. BayLISA includes system and network administrators across a range of skill levels. BayLISA meets monthly to discuss topics of interest to administrators and managers of sites supporting more than 100 users and/or computers. The meetings are free and open to the public.

BayLISA grew out of an after-hours discussion among attendees of the USENIX LISA IV conference. The idea was to provide a forum for Sysadmin professionals in the San Francisco Bay area to get together and exchange ideas, hear speakers address topics of interest and most importantly, socialize.

BayLISA stands for: Bay Area Large Installation System Administrators

See you at the meetup!

Intro to Fluvio, a programmable data streaming platform for modern orgs

Fluvio is a cloud-native data stream processing platform written in Rust. No more garbage collection, multiple specialized clusters, Java-centric coding, awkward Kubernetes connectors, and reliance on Zookeeper. Fluvio’s performance, scalability, deployment flexibility, and programmability create a new baseline for the data streaming infrastructure of the future.

This talk will describe the building blocks of the Fluvio architecture and demonstrate how custom (WASM) programmability to apply filters, maps, or compute aggregates is a game-changer. The ability to program the data as it moves between services gives SREs and DevOps the ability to perform clean data sets, perform root cause analysis, and correct problems in real-time.

Speaker Bio:
A.J. Hunyady is a co-founder of InfinyOn, the company behind the Fluvio open-source project. Fluvio is a blazing-fast programmable streaming platform for data-in-motion. A.J. has over 20 years of industry experience working on networking, distributed systems, microservices, service mesh, and data streaming products. Before InfinyOn, A.J. was responsible for the microservices strategy at NGINX, where he spearheaded nginMesh, an NGINX compatibility layer for Istio.

This event will be held virtually. Links to the virtual conference will be sent the day of the meeting to those who have RSVPed. A view only link will be shared then too.
