June 21 - Commodity Priced Computing and the Apache Web Server

The Apache Web Server is another product of the open source community and
it has  achieved phenomonal success. It is an example of commodity priced
computing and entrepreneurial opportunity and it is the gateway to server
based applications. As such, PPC is very interested in hearing about its
history and how it compares (contrasts?) with other web servers (IIS,
Netscape). And we want to understand its future model ... what problems
remain to be solved? Does it scale well?

On June 21st Cliff Skolnick of Steam Tunnel Operations will discuss these
issues and more. He'll address OS and configuration considerations and the
relevance of multiprocessing to Apache. Cliff was and still is a central
figure in the Apache development community. This will be a fun and
informative meeting.

The main meeting starts promptly at 7:30PM at Sun Microsystems at 901 San
Antonio Road in Palo Alto.  This is just off the southbound San Antonio
exit of 101.  Northbound travelers also exit at San Antonio and take the
overpass to the other side of 101.  A discussion of member projects
currently underway and other issues of interest to entrepreneurs follows
immediately thereafter at 9:15PM.

Please be prompt; as usual, we expect a large attendance; don't be left
out or left standing.  There is a $12 fee for non-members and members will
be admitted free.  Yearly membership fee is $65.

1. The PARALLEL Processing Connection-July 16th meeting notice

July 16, 1997 - The rapid advance of mass market commodity computing
hardware and software combined with the continued decline of high-end
computing vendors has created new opportunities for low cost scalable
computing systems and application platforms.  Beowulf is a class of PC
based distributed computing systems employing the Linux operating
system and industry standard message passing programming libraries.  It is
a NASA sponsored research program and has been a pathfinder project in
applying mass market technologies to scientific and engineering
applications.

This month's talk/workshop by Dr. Tom Sterling of CalTech will present
findings from experiences with Beowulf as they apply to near term
directions in mid-level system development.  Sources and methodologies
proven to be successful will be described and examples of operational
application benchmarking will be given.  Notes entitled "How to Build a
Beowulf" will be distributed.  And ... this will be a valuable opportunity to
learn the ins and outs of installing, configuring and using the Linux OS.

The main meeting starts promptly at 7:30PM at Sun Microsystems at 901
San Antonio Road in Palo Alto.  This is just off the southbound San
Antonio exit of 101.  Northbound travelers also exit at San?Antonio and
take the overpass to the other side of 101.  A discussion of member
projects currently underway and other issues of interest to entrepreneurs
follows immediately thereafter at 9:15PM.

Please be prompt; as usual, we expect a large attendance; don't be left out
or left standing.  There is a $12 fee for non-members and members will be
admitted free.  Yearly membership fee is $65.
