[PLUG] [plug-announce] REMINDER: Tonight, Mon, Oct 16, 2017: PLUG West - "Object Storage 101" by Andy Wojnarek

The Philadelphia Area Linux Users Group (PLUG) cordially invites you
to a PLUG West meeting on Monday, October 16 at ATS in Malvern, PA
from 7-9 pm.

This month, PLUG West site host Andy Wojnarek will be giving a talk 
on Object Storage 101.

  Object storage (also known as object-based storage) is a
  computer data storage architecture that manages data as
  objects, as opposed to other storage architectures like file
  systems which manage data as a file hierarchy and block storage
  which manages data as blocks within sectors and tracks.

  Object storage typically runs on top of Linux and allows you to
  avoid vendor lock-in.

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

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

  ATS Group & IBM Innovation Center
  1200 Atwater Drive, Suite 170
  Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355
