Happy New Year-Zealand!

Just like Dallas did, I’d like to welcome everybody to the new year too… Zealand-style!

A typical native linux user group.

Yup, all FOUR DreamHost honchos – and Prince William – are yukking it up this week in Wellington for a freaking linux conference.

What are we, a bunch of neckbeards?!

A typical native linux user group.

Don’t worry, we’re not just going for fun. Sage is actually giving a talk on Wednesday (a.k.a. Tuesday to you Yanks) about Ceph, the open source infintely-scalable file system based on his PhD, which is actually super AWESOME, and is finally getting close to stable (we’ve been testing it internally for a few weeks now)!

Why an octopus? It's a fish, like MySQL's dolphin, DUH.

Once the talk is done, we’ll post a link to it for more info, but in the meantime, you can register to get included in a beta test on a hosted implementation of it by emailing!

We’re also interested in hearing from any hardware vendors who might like to work with us on offering Ceph on their products.. email too!

Silly New Zealanders have their seasons all befused!

Finally, if you’re going to be at the conference look for us (wearing our DreamHost t-shirts), and if not look for us as extras in The Hobbit!
