2nd International Linux Audio Conference

Conference set for end of April in Germany.

From April 29th to May 2nd, 2004, the ZKM (Centre for Arts and Media Technology) in Karlsruhe, Germany, will host the second International Linux Audio Conference.

Notable developers from around the world will present free/libre and open-source software from diverse areas, including hard-disk recording, software sound synthesis, sampling and score editing. Several concerts and a sound installation will demonstrate how this software can be used for composition and production.

In order to help visitors set up their own computer-based audio systems, experts will be available to give advice and useful hints. Among the speakers will be the team leaders of two great Linux audio distributions, Planet CCRMA and AGNULA. Also, a CD-bootable Live Linux audio system is being developed that will help newcomers to evaluate what Linux can do for them.

The end of the conference will be marked by a panel discussion about the future of libre audio software under Linux. During the conference the brand-new Lionstracs Mediastation will be demonstrated. This keyboard, targeted at music production, is based almost completely on libre Linux software.

The programme and further information is available at www.zkm.de/lad.

For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
