February 21st to February 23rd, 2014
SCaLE 12X – the 12th annual Southern California Linux Expo – takes place on Feb. 21-23, 2014, at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport hotel. As the first-of-the-year Linux/Open Source software expo in North America, SCaLE 12X expects to host more than 100 exhibitors this year, along with nearly 80 sessions, tutorials and special events.
Brendan Gregg has unique insight into the performance features and analysis capabilities of both Linux- and Solaris-based systems, which he covers in depth in his new book, “Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud.” He works at a high performance cloud provider, where OS performance is core to the business, and frequently debugs head to head performance comparisons.
The keynote will address in depth how Linux system performance compares to other operating systems, particularly the performance-focused Solaris family of operating systems, and will address what features inspired by these Solaris-based systems could be added to Linux.
