USENIX Education on the Road

USENIX is excited to announce a new program that will bring USENIX-quality tutorials for free to a city near you.

In 2007 USENIX began to partner with leading universities, research institutions, and corporations to bring some of our most popular technical tutorials to a city near you—for free! Our purpose is to give back to long-standing USENIX members, while exposing those who are not familiar with USENIX to the quality of our conferences and educational services. What better way to do that then to send out a free sample of cutting-edge tutorial programs?

This program is offered free-of-charge to qualified IT professionals, researchers, and students.

We began this new program by offering two of our most popular tutorial titles, "Disk-to-Disk Backup and Eliminating Backup System Bottlenecks" and "Next Generation Storage Networking." On occasion, we may offer a condensed version of these two tutorials that combines the topics or areas of most interest to attendees into one event. We can be flexible in terms of exact tutorial content and will prioritize based on the issues that are of most interest to your group. Storage and backup are hot fields, rife with both innovation and confusion, so we anticipate that these topics will be relevant to a wide audience. Similarly, at past conferences these topics have appealed to people within a broad spectrum of technical experience, ranging from those who manage storage and design backup systems for a living to those who simply have curiosity.

Latest Trends in Storage Networking


Duration: The program runs from 9:00 a.m. to roughly 2:30 p.m., but it is broken down into 4 separate lectures with a lunch break in the middle. Feel free to leave early or arrive late. You will still get a lot out of your time investment.

Who should attend: The lecture materials are intended for a hands-on technical audience: system admins, storage admins, disaster recovery planners, data center managers, etc. We expect that you have a working knowledge of storage, backup system principles, networks, and servers. The course content is particularly useful to those who are responsible for system architecture and for general IT strategy.

Overview: This one-day event consists of four lectures addressing the latest trends in storage networking. The four lectures are derived from the program for Storage Day at the 24th Large Installation System Administration Conference (LISA '10), which was held in San Jose, CA, November 7–12, 2010. It is the premier conference for hands-on system administrators. At LISA the presentations are delivered by industry experts (you know, the people who write the technical books and articles), not by product manufacturers. The program is offered for FREE to IT end users. There is a nominal fee to attend for those who do not work as an end user of information technology.
