I thought some of you might be interested in this. Sorry for the late notice.
There is a map that came with this but since it was a bit large I didn't forward 
it. Let me know if you need the map.


REMINDER: this is tomorrow night. Don't forget to RSVP!

If you would like to call in we have audio and video conferencing planned:

There is a slight possibility that we will have phone access only. It depends on 
how many people show up for the meeting. If we need to move from the currently

This month we are holding our meeting at a new location. Netsource, Inc.
has offered to host the FROSUG meeting. They are located down south, so
this will give folks who haven't wanted to make the trek to Broomfield a
chance to attend. Of course, we hope all of you that come to our
meetings on the Sun Campus join us too.

This month Lisa Week is presenting pNFS. pNFS is a new protocol
extention to NFSv4 which is being standardized in the NFSv4 Working
Group of the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force).  The pNFS protocol
allows us to separate a NFS file system's data and metadata paths.  With
a separate data path we are free to lay file data out in interesting
ways like striping it across multiple different file servers.  The talk
will go into how this is different from traditional NFS and the benefits
and goals of this technology.

Lisa Week is a Software Engineer at Sun Microsystems.  She started at
Sun in June of 2001 after graduating from the South Dakota School of
Mines and Technology with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer
Engineering.  When she first started at Sun she was in the Data Resource
Management Group working on GUIs and APIs for things like file system
mounts and shares.  Then she went on to develop a CIM/WBEM provider for
management of NFS.  This what got her interested in and introduced her
to NFS and she now works in the NFS group.  Lisa has worked on multiple
different NFSv4 related projects including NFSv4 ACLs (Access Control
Lists) and she currently is a member of the pNFS (parallel NFS) project
