Introduction

All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.

TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.

As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of the month and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 4th Friday, every month. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.

"Linux Storage - an introduction to FCoE/DCB" by Jack Morgan

Linux storage options are growing with each release of the Linux kernel. I will introduce Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and it's adjacent technology Data Canter Bridging (DCB) for 10Gbe adapters. I will cover some of the technical details of these two technologies, discuss how to get them installed/configured on your system and provide a demonstration, assuming we have Internet access. Here are a few links:

Details

This event is open to all Linux users and friends, and is to promote casual Linux (and non-Linux) related discussions over a few cold ones. Even if you're not a Linux user or a LUG member, but want to hang out with Linux people, please come.

Even if you want to come at the last minute it's okay - we may have to squeeze a bit, but please come!
