Arthur Tyde (Levanta)
MapFS is an open source project by Levanta (www.levanta.com) that
implements a Linux filesystem, and utilizes copy-on-write
functionality and existing Linux filesystems to allow component
filesystems (or portions thereof) to be combined into a single
virtual filesystem that appears to be fully writable. This
functionality significantly eases data sharing between multiple
machines connected to a shared storage medium (SAN/NAS/Mainframe
DASD) as data can be optimistically shared between all of the
machines in a way which is completely transparent to the
applications running on them.
Arthur Tyde will speak about why the Linux community is excited
about MapFS in the greater context of Linux systems management, and
will highlight specific usage scenarios for which anyone can start
working with MapFS today.
As a Linux kernel-loadable module, MapFS has been developed under
the GPL since its incarnation in early 2004. MapFS is now being
made widely available to the Open Source community via SourceForge,
at <http://sourceforge.net/projects/mapfs>. It is written in C,
uses the standard Linux kernel VFS and loadable module interfaces
for defining new filesystem types to the kernel,and supports (at
least) kernel versions 2.4.7 to 2.6.13.
Levanta shall be raffling an Ipod Nano!
Swag (Give Away) - During the meeting... unusually terrific swag of
non-predetermined origin will be given out to all attendees at the

After the meeting ... Join us around 8:30pm or so at TGI Friday's,
