Hey everyone,

My name is Zach Moazeni ( http://simplechatter.com ), and I'm a Software Developer at Elevator Up ( http://elevatorup.com ) in Holland MI. We're primarily focused on custom application development, and web/application hosting.

Right now all of our servers are running Ubuntu and we're in the process of moving all of our servers into Xen virtual environments.

I wanted to peg this list to try and connect with individuals passionate about Network Engineering/System Administration. One from a selfish reason because we're looking for someone to join our team full-time. But also because my network is almost exclusively in the Software Development arena, and I'm a bit of a fish out of water.

So I'm curious about any User Groups (whether formal or informal) or meetings that touch on Virtualization, Optimization of various software used in web applications (Webservers: Apache, Nginx, Lighttpd, DBs: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Filesystems: NFS, AFS, DFS, etc), as well as other higher level concepts such as High Availability, Fail over, Cloud Computing, Clustering.

Thanks gang

Zach Moazeni
