This month, for our 2018-06-19 (3rd Tuesday) BALUG meeting,
we are proud to present: Elizabeth K. Joseph: DC/OS

Elizabeth K. Joseph[1]: DC/OS (the datacenter operating system)[2]

Elizabeth K. Joseph joins us to give an introduction to DC/OS.

Tooling around container orchestration has gained a lot of attention
recently with various open source tools promising to deliver the
framework to manage a highly available container infrastructure. This
talk will explore DC/OS (the datacenter operating system) an
open-source, distributed operating system based on the
Apache Mesos[3] distributed systems kernel. DC/OS manages multiple
machines in the cloud or on-premises from a single interface; deploys
containers, distributed services, and legacy applications into those
machines; and provides networking, service discovery and resource
management to keep the services running and communicating with each other.

A demo using real streaming will also be given to show how DC/OS can
easily use various popular open source big data tools to process data
coming in and present it to the user.

Bio: Elizabeth K. Joseph spent much of the past decade working as a
Linux systems administrator, and today works as a Developer Advocate at
Mesosphere[4]. She is the author of Common OpenStack Deployments[5]
and The Official Ubuntu Book[6].

Meeting Details...

     The meetings are always free, but dinner is not (unless you are our
     guest speaker, in which case we also treat you to dinner).  For
     Henry's Hunan Restaurant, if folks are agreeable, we'll share and
     dine "family" style, and split up the costs, and typical cost per
     person including tax and tip (but not including beverages beyond
     complementary tea) would be in the $13.00 to $20.00 range, and
     commonly around $15.00 to $17.00.  Cash may be preferred to ease
     splitting up the check.  One can also specifically order the
     dish(es) one needs/prefers (e.g. for dietary considerations) - and
     we also commonly order some dish(es) that may meet various dietary
     considerations) (e.g. vegetarian, non-pork, ...).  Please arrive by
     7:00 P.M., we expect to order entrees at that time, and may order
     appetizer(s) and/or soup(s) anytime after 6:30 P.M.
