This month PLUG welcomes Dustin Hoffman, Senior Technical Account
Manager at RedHat, who will be giving a talk entitled "GlusterFS
for SysAdmins".

  GlusterFS represents a dramatic departure from traditional backend
  storage solutions. In this talk, attendees will get a technical dive
  into GlusterFS from the SysAdmin perspective, including a study of
  implementation scenarios. We'll explore such topics as enterprise
  storage strategy, data access methods, the elegant simplicity of
  scaling both out and up, the strength of redundancy and fault
  tolerance, and ways to boost performance.
