PLUG Presentation Slides: The Open Source Data Center
14 May 2009 01:04

Tonight I presented at the Provo Linux Users Group. My presentation was entitled: "The Open Source Data Center: Plugging Open Source Software into Patterns of Data Center Operations". The presentation was about patterns in data center operations, and Open Source software to fill those patterns. Slides are available below:

I used SlideRocket to put together the slide deck. Their app is very nice. Also used Inkscape and Google Docs (Presentations) to create some of the graphics. The slides are too bullet heavy at this point, I'd like to liven them up with some more images and such.

Audio is available here:

Turnout tonight was decent, and I got some good feedback. I hope to submit this for the Utah Open Source Conference later this year. Omniture graciously provided pizza and drinks. Thanks to all who attended!

This image is a bit hard on the eyes, lets try again, again, last try. Very interesting presentation. On the performance and monitoring side of things you REALLY should look at PCP from SGI, it's AWESOME what is can do. Far to much to go over in this short space. pmchart is a great tool for visualizing the data from it. pmie for alerting etc etc etc, it's a very compete setup.

@Rodney McKee: Thanks for pointing me to this tool. I'll add it to future incarnations of this presentation.
