General Meeting on Wednesday - 12 August 2015
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session; which may include either simple tutorials, displays of newly discovered web sites, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, amazing graphical packages, major resolution of long standing anomalies, blinking lights, or quantum shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event.

Our main event will be Linux on Power by John Hodge (of Graybar)

Overview from follows:

PowerLinux is the combination of a Linux-based operating system (OS) running on IBM Power Architecture technology. It is often used in reference, along with Linux on Power, to Linux running on POWER-based systems from IBM and it is the name of several Linux-only Power Systems.

PowerLinux is the result of uniting high-performing Power Architecture with the open-source Linux OS. The combination produces a customizable system capable of handling large quantities of data more efficiently without the need for additional hardware. IBM POWER processor-based systems offer reliability, availability and serviceability characteristics that are not commonly found in server families running the Linux OS and provide mission-critical applications a higher level of support than other 32- or 64-bit Linux environments. PowerLinux systems include PowerVM virtualization built into the system. PowerVM is designed to pool resources and optimize their use across multiple application environments and operating system instances. This increases server efficiency by creating higher utilization per core and more throughput per server.
