Google is poised to give their first public insight into the management of their clustered architecture at the annual AUUG conference.
Despite recent calls to disband the Australian Unix Users Group (AUUG), the organisation is pushing ahead with its annual conference scheduled to start in Melbourne next week.
Michael Still, an Australian working at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California will give conference attendees the first public glimpse of how Google uses an open source tool called Slack, which is used to deploy software configurations to large clusters of machines.
According to the Unix user group the AUUG 2006 conference is aimed at UNIX, Linux, BSD and Open Source users with a focus on providing practical problem solving strategies to managers and implementers of a broad range of technologies.
The 3 day conference programme is preceded by a 1 day tutorial programme featuring: MySQL, Web application development, security and risk management. For more information visit the AUUG Web site.
