The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, October 9.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Consolidated Storage - SAN/NAS or something else?

   Although most I/T professionals agree on the benefits of consolidating
   storage, there is some discussion as to whether a Storage Area Network
   (SAN) or Network Attached Storage (NAS) is the best strategy. The
   answer is that it depends; but making the choice, especially in the
   face of new emerging technologies is difficult.

   This session will explain the concept of Consolidated Storage and its
   benefits. Then we will explore a few of the technologies available and
   on the near horizon for implementing a centralized storage
   infrastructure. Terry Baydock, Technical Sales Specialist with the
   Storage Systems Group at IBM Canada Ltd., will be our presenter for
   this session.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location:  IBM Canada's offices in the TD
   Centre, at the corner of Portage and Main. We gather in the lobby on
   the main floor - please try to be there by about 7:15 PM. Steve Moffat
   will then take us up to the meeting room just before the meeting
   starts at 7:30. Don't be late, or you may not get in.

   Parking is available either in the parkade behind the TD building,
   off Albert Street, or in the ground level lot just north of the TD
   building. Entrance to the lot is from Albert Street, behind the
   parkade. Either way, parking is a $2 flat rate for the evening. You
   purchase two $1 tickets from a dispenser, so make sure you've got
   exact change - a loonie or 4 quarters for each of two tickets.
