Second Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation

Cynthia Deno, the Exhibition and Publicity Coordinator for USENIX at The UNIX and Advanced Computing Systems Technical and Professional Association, writes us that there has been a change in the dates of the symposium from those given in the September 1995 issue of LJ.

The Program Committee is currently seeking papers describing original work concerning the design, implementation and use of modern operating systems. Besides mature work, we encourage submissions describing exceptionally promising, well-grounded speculative work, or enlightening negative results. For submission guidelines, please contact the program chairs at osdi@cs.rice.edu.

First Conference on Freely Redistributable Software

The First Conference on Freely Redistributable Software (sponsored by the Free Software Foundation) will take place Friday to Monday, February 2-5, 1996 at the Cambridge Center Marriott in Cambridge, MA. Keynote speakers will be Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman.

Peter Salus will give seminars entitled ''Linux: An Open System For Everyone'' and “Installing and Running Linux.” The first seminar will look at Linux from its beginnings through its current capabilities, including a look at what some companies are currently doing with Linux. The seminar will conclude with a look at the future of Linux. Peter's second seminar will consist of a ''Look Under the Hood'' covering what makes up a Linux system, what you need, how to install it and what to do when something goes wrong. Interconnectivity options will also be addressed. Requests for registration materials and full programs may be made by e-mail conf96@gnu.ai.mit.edu), phone (617-542-5942) or fax (617-542-2652).


One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
