openMosix's Moshe Bar to speak at SVLUG
Moshe Bar, the project manager of openMosix, is scheduled to speak at the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group meeting on Wednesday, February 5, 2002. The meeting will be held at Cisco Systems in San Jose, California, at 7PM.
As clusters are expanding from high performance computing into business applications, single-system-image clusters quickly are gaining importance. In a short time period, openMosix has gained thousands of installations around the world and enjoys an enthusiastic and strong developer community. In this talk Moshe Bar will explore the internals of openMosix, the technology's application fields and sample uses.
openMosix is a kernel patch and does not require changes to user space applications. Once you have installed openMosix, the nodes in the cluster talk to one another, and the cluster adapts itself to the workload. Processes originating from any one node, if that node is too busy compared to others, can migrate to any other node. openMosix continuously attempts to optimize the resource allocation.
Because all openMosix extensions are inside the kernel, every Linux application automatically and transparently benefits from the distributed computing concept of openMosix. The cluster behaves much as does a symmetric multiprocessor, but this solution scales to well over a thousand nodes, which can themselves be SMPs.
Moshe Bar is the former co-project manager of MOSIX and the current project manager of openMosix. He has authored several books on the Linux kernel and clustering and is co-author with Karl Fogel in the classic CVS book OpenSource Development with CVS. Moshe has been a senior monthly columnist at BYTE for the last four years and wrote regular kernel columns in the past for Linux Journal and other publications. In 2001 Moshe Bar became CTO of Linux clustering start-up Qlusters, Inc. Moshe has a M.Sc and Ph.D. in computer science and teaches advanced operating systems topics at Tel Aviv University and at the United Nations Atomic Agency research institute ICTP in Triest, Italy. He also is a permanent researcher at the Italian National Institute of Particle Physics.
SVLUG meetings are free and open to the public.
SVLUG also organizes monthly installfests on the third Saturday of every month.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
