Linux Conference Australia

January 6, 2014 - January 10, 2014
Perth
Western Australia

linux.conf.au draws attendees and speakers  worldwide from all spheres of open source, geeks, hackers, professionals, hobbyists and business partners. 

The conference is held over five days, in 2014 from the 6th to 10th January, and will comprise five tracks of presentation and tutorial sessions. Additionally every day starts with a keynote presentation. We've yet to confirm the list of keynote speakers for linux.conf.au 2014, but for a taster of the caliber of speakers we attract here's a selection of past keynoters:

2013 Canberra: Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Radia Perlman

2012 Ballarat: Jacob Appelbaum, Bruce Perens

2011 Brisbane: Vint Cerf


The linux.conf.au open source conference is unique among technical conferences in that it is not a trade show, nor is it a geekfest. The conference is a special blend of both business and private individuals that come together under a common umbrella of open source technologies.

Big business is always in attendance - many of the main sponsors are drawn from the corporate world. Much of the worlds top technologies and technology companies are underpinned by the Linux operating system and this conference is an obvious choice for their key IT staff. Both to present and to network and learn from others.

The use of open source technologies and the Linux operating system is not just confined to business though, and you will find many hobbyists who use Linux to make music, develop graphic art, study astronomy, design electronics, hack and just generally play (yes, even computer games).

This blend gives the conference a special feeling of a close community yet manages to cater to a very wide audience and avoids the uncomfortable schmooze factor that accompanies many corporate trade shows.In January 2014, Perth, Western Australia will be playing host to the continents premier open source conference – linux.conf.au.

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.

Webinar
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.
