my company is sponsoring a FreeBSD cluster presentation given by Brooks
Davis and some boys from Intel next month in Fremont, CA. details below.
High Performance Computing Blade Cluster Presentation Using FreeBSD
Come join us while Brooks Davis demonstrates a FreeBSD cluster running
on cutting edge Intel Blade hardware. Brooks will show us how to build a
High Performance Cluster on FreeBSD using popular open-source software.
Intel representatives will demonstrate the cool new Intel Blade hardware
and systems management software. A question and answer session will
follow after the presentations.
Rumor has it that Beastie, the FreeBSD mascot, may also make an
appearance with numerous FreeBSD giveaways. OffMyServer will provide
food and beverages and FreeBSD Mall will be on-hand with FreeBSD books
