Sponsorship of KyivBSD 2011

As both founders of Intuix are from city of Kyiv (also spelled Kiev), we traditionally support local open-source events that help people to better know and use system and application software we love.

KyivBSD 2011 was attended by over fifty people and covered topics such as hardware running BSD (routers, console servers), package management, kernel subsystems (graphics, storage enclosure services), Unix clouds, and IPv6 - something we offer already! It was on Saturday, September 24th, and took pretty much entire day.  Thanks to D-Link, FreeBSD Foundation, iXsystems, and ourselves (in alphabetical order.)

OSDN would happen this Saturday, October 1st.  Preliminary program is available (only in Russian, sorry.)

We would update this entry (or perhaps publish a new one) next week.

sponsorship of BSD events

Intuix LLC sponsors two events this year - KyivBSD 2010 in Ukraine and
MeetBSD 2010 in California, USA.

The main reason for choosing these is because of technology they cover -
BSD, a Unix variant we utilize in our infrastructure.

As KyivBSD has passed, here is a short report on it.  THe event was
held in Kyiv, capital of Ukraine (where company founders
grew up, and many FreeBSD users exist.)  Apart from us, sponsors
include FreeBSD Foundation, iXsystems (both are also sponsoring
MeetBSD) and two other companies, V-Time (Ukrainian systems
integrator) and D-Link (well-known hardware manufacturer.)

The event took a full day, with eleven presentations, archived at ; of particular interest were:

"FreeBSD on amd64" by Konstantin Belousov with detailed discussion of
platform's benefits, Andrey Gapon's talk on kernel debugging,
Alexey Cheusov's story about mk-configure - a new approach of
multi-platform build tool, inspired by BSD make,
and Nikolay Dzham's presentation of clusters on FreeBSD utilitizing
Sun (I mean, Oracle) grid computing engine.

My apologies for possible misspelling names, and big thanks to
Alexander Yerenkov who did great work of organizing this mini-conference.

BGP connections turned on in two of our locations

We have started to utilize our new autonomous system (AS18865) and are now announcing our new address space by BGP in two of our three major locations, with third underway.

What does it mean to us?   More reliability (in case of one connection is down, another can be used), and more provider-independence (if one of our locations is closed, or full, customers do not necessarily have to renumber to new IP address space.)

What does it mean to our customers?  Savings in time, and increased network availability.

Stay tuned for IP version 6 connectivity announcement.

Update May 19th 2010: our third location added as well.
