This week I did another presentation outside my city. This time it was at Maracanau in the Comsolid, a open source and digital inclusion event.
My first presentation was about ZFS filesystem and how you can take benefits from it like pooling storage and self healing. I used as base for examples my last post on it, Trying to corrupt data in a ZFS mirror.
My next talk was about OpenSolaris. We had a lot of questions and interesting about this. We burned some cds with OpenSolaris 2008.5 and also distributed others versions of OpenSolaris like Solaris 10.
And my last presentation was a quick talk about high performance computing, a short version on that I already did before.
Was a interesting event mainly because the public was composed primarily by young students with few background on TI. It was a challenge to present some new concepts like pooling storage for those who aren’t familiar with filesystems management. I tried to keep my talk as simpler as I could and focus on daily problems and showing that you can avoid them with some open source technologies.
