Austin Linux Meetup: KVM as Hypervisor and GNU Parallel
April 11, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Hey all, mark your calendars for next Thursday, 4/11 as we have two in-depth tech talks served with drinks and Pizza! A big thanks to the generous folks at Linux Academy, esp. Chad Crowell ( https://linuxacademy.com/blog/author/chad-crowell ) who will introduce the latest courses from the leader in worldwide Linux-based training that’s based right here in Texas.
After that, we’ll have two scheduled talks. Darren will talk about:
1. Using KVM as a hypervisor including a walk-through for setting up a VM to run on a laptop.
Also a talk on:
2. GNU parallel ( https://www.gnu.org/software/parallel ). Familiarity with using long-time CLI tool, xargs will help in following along examples.
Darren Carpenter has been using Linux qemu/KVM as a hypervisor both for personal and professional production uses for several years and is currently administering a few of these hypervisors to provide production and developer build VMs at Cray. This has largely been done using various common Linux distributions including RHEL/CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint, and SLES, and supporting guest VMs including these Linux platforms and more as well as various Windows versions, x86 Android and x86 Solaris. Darren can demonstrate some typical server configuration scenarios, guest installations, and common scenarios that are seen in production as well as more casual home use scenarios. He can also talk about some of the lessons learned and will do his best to field your questions.
