------------------------------------------------------------------------

This year's DebConf in Managua took Debian to a new part of the world which is too little visited by major Free Software events, allowing the project to reach out to new contributors and learn new perspectives, as well as to continue its hard work towards the next stable release of Debian.

The conference brought together around 200 attendees from 32 countries, and helped many people make their first steps in contributing to Debian, including a large number of enthusiastic new volunteers from countries in Central America.

98 talks were given, with highlights including:

* EFI boot methodology [1]
* XCP, OpenStack, Debian and the Cloud [2]
* FreedomBox Update [3]
* Beginners Spanish [4]

falko's picture

This tutorial shows how to do data striping across four single storage servers (running Ubuntu 12.04) with GlusterFS. The client system (Ubuntu 12.04 as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.
