I apologize for getting this out so late! Be sure to come. This is going to be
a great presentation. Dan manages over 15,000 Linux servers. You may not have
that many, but the lessons learned can help anyone who is using Linux as a
server (from few to many). From Dan:
"During the last 10 years of system administration I have been involved in a
number of data center migrations and build-outs. As these projects came and
went I began to see patterns emerge in the set of services and software
required to run a successful operations infrastructure. This presentation will
describe these patterns, and provide an overview of the Open Source software
available to implement them."
Dan Hanks has been involved with Linux System administration since 1998, when
he worked for EagleNet Online, a small ISP in Provo, which, in a sense, was
the birthplace of PLUG. After EagleNet he worked as a systems and database
administrator for Nothsky/About.com/Primedia/United Online and is currently a
system administrator for Omniture. He has varied interests, ranging from
computers and technology to astronomy, geology, music, art, and family history
research. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from BYU, and is
the father of 4 adventuresome children. He (occasionally) blogs at
http://brainshed.com, and tweets as @danhanks.
See you all there!
