For our 2013-07-16 BALUG meeting, we're proud to present:
Linux & Virtual Machines, etc. - Michael Paoli

Michael Paoli will be giving presentation and demonstration of virtual  
machine (VM) technologies.  This will include information on and  
demonstrations with qemu-kvm[1], qemu[2], libvirt[3] and  
VirtualBox[4], and also information on Xen[5], VMware[6] and  
additional virtualization technologies and possibly additional  
demonstration bits.

Michael Paoli has been administering virtual machines on Linux for over
5 years, including VMware, Xen, KVM/qemu-kvm/QEMU and VirtualBox, and
has used virtual machine technologies and virtual technologies many
additional years.  He's been administering Linux for 15 years, Unix for

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help
BALUG and the Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and meeting, and with
sufficient attendance, they also help ensure that we'll be able to eat
upstairs in the private banquet room.
