[PLUG] PLUG West, Mon, Jul 18, 2011 - "GT.M" presented by Roger Partridge (7pm at FIS in Malvern)

The Philadelphia Area Linux Users Group (PLUG) cordially invites
you to a PLUG West meeting on Monday, July 18 at FIS in
Malvern, PA from 7-9 pm.  See below for directions to the meeting

This month PLUG West welcomes Roger Partridge, who will be giving a 
talk on GT.M.

FIS GT.M ( is a NoSQL (key-value) database
available on Linux as free / open source software (AGPL v3).  The code
base is mature, and it is used around the world in banking and health
care with the largest production databases extending to a few TB.  The
GT.M data store can model all four of the common use cases of NoSQL
databases.  Given the limitations of the CAP Theorem for distributed
applications, GT.M implements Eventual Path Consistency rather than
the Eventual State Consistency provided by other database engines.
Eventual Path Consistency is a stronger form of consistency than
Eventual State Consistency.

Interested in Linux, BSD, and Free Software?  Whether you're
already an enthusiast or want to learn more, come and join us!
PLUG meetings are free and open to everyone, and anyone who is
curious is invited to attend.

The meeting will be at the FIS office in Malvern, PA:

   2 West Liberty Blvd, Suite 300
   Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355

meeting location) or TJ's in Paoli.
