In addition, there will be ample time for community discussion and networking during the luncheon and cocktail hour.

SCaLE 7x, which runs February 20-22, 2009, at the Los Angeles Airport Westin, is the premier open source community conference in the southwestern United States. Zenoss will be demonstrating Zenoss Core throughout the show.
“We are grateful for Zenoss’ continued support of SCaLE,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, SCaLE 7x Conference Chair. “While the economy presents challenges, the upcoming Expo looks to be extremely successful – a true testament to the commitment of the open source community. During these troubled economic times, the advantages of open source solutions such as Zenoss become even more apparent.”
