AppArmor

Tim Laurence will tell us about AppArmor. He writes:

AppArmor promises to provide easy to use application security.

What does it do? How do you bend it to your will? Why should you care?

Tim thinks AppArmor is pretty neat. He will explain what is all about and show just how easy it can be to use.

Open Source High-Availability Clusters with KVM

This presentation was originally scheduled for January 2014, but then snow happened. Then it was rescheduled again. The third time might be the charm?

Madison Kelly will walk us through building a two-node high-availability virtual server cluster. The cluster component is built using Red Hat's High-Availability Add-On, DRBD for replicated storage and KVM as the hypervisor. This talk will be a good precursor for her complete tutorial.
