his Meetup will be on Thursday, March 10, at 7:00PM in Talbert 103 on 
the UB North Campus.

The Stark and Wayne guys will discuss Reliable Distributed PostgreSQL 

We will discuss and demonstrate how we used the PostgreSQL BDR project 
(Logical Bi-Directional replication 
<http://2ndquadrant.com/en-us/resources/bdr/>) together with Consul 
(https://www.consul.io <https://www.consul.io/>) and BOSH 
<http://mariash.github.io/learn-bosh/>) as an example PostgreSQL service 
for the Cloud Foundry platform-as-a-service offering.

We will cover where the project is at, what trade-offs we made, and what 
future plans we have for the project.

The presentation will be given by Xiujiao Gao. She is currently pursuing 
her Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering at the State University of 
New York at Buffalo (UB).  Her research projects at UB including Virtual 
Network (VN) Mapping, Multicast Services VN Mapping and Mapping 
Reliability in Cloud Computing.She is currently working at Stark & Wayne 
as a Cloud Engineer helping to deliver tremendous value to customers 
(such as GE). She has been working on the RDPG project, bosh deployments 
for various products and pipelines for automated deployment of various 
services at Stark & Wayne. She is one of the main contributors to the 
RDPG project. Xiujiao has previously presented at both academic and 
industry conferences.

Talbert Hall is more or less between the Governor's and Hochstetter 
parking lots. It is next to the Natural Sciences Complex. Room 103 is on 
the same level as the Hochstetter lots. No permit is required after 3:00 

We'll continue with light refreshments as we've been doing. Let's set 
7:00 as the meet and get settled time with the talk starting at 7:15.

Our current sponsor is Stark and Wayne. Stark & Wayne LLC is a US-based 
consultancy that specializes in Cloud Foundry & BOSH. They are a 
founding Silver member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation and are widely 
recognized as the leading consultancy, community contributors, and 
educators for both Cloud Foundry & BOSH.

Stark & Wayne works on open source projects to make it easier for 
companies and their staff to discover Cloud Foundry, onboard it into 
their organization, and have success with it. They are also the creators 
and maintainers of popular open source projects bosh-bootstrap 
<http://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/bosh-bootstrap>, bosh-gen 
<http://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/bosh-gen>, bosh-workspace 
and the staticfile-buildpack 
<https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/staticfile-buildpack/> which 
was recently promoted into the Cloud Foundry Incubator program for 
consideration as a first-class Cloud Foundry code base. We created the 
end-to-end tool chain 
<https://github.com/cloudfoundry-community/terraform-aws-cf-install> for 
booting up Cloud Foundry into a new AWS VPC.
