XtreemOS at Poslovna Linux Konferenca

Poslovna Linux konferenca (Business Linux Conference) is an annual event in Slovenia, focussing on the use of Linux and other open-source software in business environments.  This year  the conference took place in Portorož on the 28th and 29th of September.



XtreemOS was presented by Marjan Šterk and Matej Artač (both from XLAB) as a platform for collaboration both within companies and across company borders. A potential use case in an architectural bureau was used to enumerate the most important features of XtreemOS in businesses: sharing files with XtreemFS, exploiting grid resources for automatic compilation of project documentation, marketing material, animations etc, and use of applications installed on remote computers without the need for local user accounts. A simplified live demonstration of these features was also shown.


XtreemOS at Linux Symposium

The Linux Symposium was held at Montreal, Canada, from July 13th to July 17th.


John Mehnert-Spahn (UDUS) gave a technical presentation of 45 minutes on his work "Incremental Checkpointing for Grids" on July 15th. John explained the motivation behind incremental checkpoint and its implementation in Linux SSI as well as its integration in XtreemOS. There was much interest in the implementation of incremental checkpoint.

On 17th July Surbhi Chitre (INRIA) held a BOFs session for XtreemOS. She explained why XtreemOS is attractive and how it is a complete solution for grids. She also explained her work of integrating OpenVZ in XtreemOS, why it was chosen and the challenges in doing so. In her talk, she also gave a brief introduction to XtreemFS features. This was followed by a presentation by Louis Rilling of Kerlabs of Kerrighed Clusters which is supported by XtreemOS.
