CentOS Dojo Cincinnati, OH, 4 June 2014 @ University of Cincinnati

A one day sysadmin centric learning and sharing experience

The CentOS Dojos are one day events, held around the world to bring together people from the CentOS Communities to talk about systems administration, best practices in Linux-centric activities and emerging technologies of note. The emphasis is to find local speakers and tutors to come together and talk about things that they care about most, and to share stories from their experiences working with CentOS in various scenarios.

The Cincinnati Dojo is hosted at the University of Cincinnati's School of Information Technology

Speakers

Rich Bowen

Measuring your OpenStack Cloud with Ceilometer: Bring up Ceilometer on your OpenStack cloud to get metering across all the various components of your private cloud. Rich will show you how to install and configure Ceilometer, and get useful stats out of it.

Joe Brockmeier

Software Collections on CentOS: The power to build, install and use multiple versions of software on the same system, without affecting system-wide installed packages. Welcome to software collections. In this talk Joe will cover some of the background on software collections, how to implement them and highlight some of the scl's being shipped today in CentOS Linux.

Matt Hyclak

Open Compute Platform for Hadoop: Abstract: Open Compute Hardware allows for inexpensive scaling on a rack-sized scale. Hadoop takes advantage of scaling at that level. We are moving toward using Foreman to deploy Hadoop onto the OCP hardware for ourselves and our customers.

Shaun McCance

Open Source Documentation for Admins: Where would we be without documentation? More importantly, where will your users (or co-workers) be without understanding how your systems are run, and how to restore them when something goes wrong? We'll look at the tools for creating, and managing, documentation on CentOS.

Scott Merrill

Stupid Puppet Tricks: Mirroring Yum Repos with Puppet: Mirroring yum repos isn't a particularly hard thing to do, but Scott decided to do it with Puppet. Join him on his journey to automate all the things, and see what worked and what didn't.

Russ Pavlicek

Using and Understanding Xen4CentOS: Xen Project Evangelist Russ Pavlicek will discuss how to use the Xen Project hypervisor on top of CentOS.

Jim Perrin

Growing CentOS as a Platform for Infrastructure Development: The data center is changing, and the role of server operating systems is evolving along with it. CentOS is taking on the challenge of becoming a platform for innovation that enables next-generation services to meet the needs of the data center today and tomorrow. We'll look at how CentOS is embracing special interest groups (SIGs) and variants, in addition to its standard offerings, to meet those needs. We'll also take time for Q&A and let the audience introduce themselves so that attendees can make the most of the "hallway" track.

Eric Sarakaitis

Open Compute Platform for Hadoop: Open Compute Hardware allows for inexpensive scaling on a rack-sized scale. Hadoop takes advantage of scaling at that level. We are moving toward using Foreman to deploy Hadoop onto the OCP hardware for ourselves and our customers.
