openMosix’ 3rd Anniversary and Summit 2005

Bruce Knox writes “Cupertino (February 10, 2005) – openMosix Project is celebrating its 3rd anniversary with Summit 2005 in Brussels February 26 – 27th. The openMosix Summit is held concurrently with FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers conference.

Moshe Bar, openMosix founder and project leader, will present the keynote State of openMosix. openMosix Project Developers will discuss the soon to be released rewrite of openMosix.

openMosix 2.6 will move much of the patch’s code from the kernel to user space. This is a very significant improvement that brings improved performance, makes user land tools easier to implement, and most significantly, simplifies porting to new kernel versions including as AMD Opteron™ , Intel® EM64T, and PowerPPC.

Summit information is available from the project website:

openMosix is a Linux kernel extension for single-system image (SSI) clustering that allows building a cluster from ordinary networked computers. Applications benefit without modification specifically for openMosix.”
