Excerpt

This talk will discuss High Performance Computing and Lustre - an open source parallel file system. We'll discuss scaling challenges and how open source software is being developed to address them.

Description

This talk will introduce High Performance Computing (HPC) and parallel filesystems (pfs). We’ll discuss what HPC is, what it’s used for, and why IO has historically been such a major pain point. We’ll look at Lustre, an open source pfs, and how it’s evolving to address some of the most challenging IO problems we face today.
