Livermore, Calif. – March 18, 2013 – Open Scalable File Systems (OpenSFS), the premier participant-supported, vendor-neutral, non-profit organization supporting and coordinating the High Performance Computing (HPC) open source file system community, in cooperation with the European Open File System (EOFS), is pleased to announce the full agenda for LUG 2013, Lustre community’s annual user group meeting. LUG 2013 will take place in San Diego this year at the Omni Hotel in the Downtown Gas lamp Quarter. Meeting sessions will be held from April 16-18.
Registration is set to close Friday, March 22.
“This year LUG will truly be a tour de force of Lustre developers, users and vendors. I am so impressed with the range of technical topics, with lots of focus and energy around what comes next. It’s very exciting to see,” said Norman Morse, CEO of OpenSFS. “If you’re involved in the Lustre community – or want to be – we hope to see you in San Diego!”
Lustre community is celebrating one of Lustre’s biggest years with multiple new Lustre installations worldwide and a breaking of 1 TB/sec data access speed barrier. LUG 2013 will have presentations from key Lustre developers, eight different research institutes, nine different major hardware and software vendors, a case study in financial services, multiple OpenSFS working group meetings, and more.
LUG 2013 will feature three days of presentations from Lustre users and developers on select Lustre features, future enhancements, and site-specific Lustre experiences. Prominent Lustre leaders from key development companies, such as Mark Seager (Intel), Peter Braam (Xyratex), Shinji Sumimoto (Fujitsu), and Eric Barton (Intel), will appear as panelists to engage the community in an open discussion about Lustre’s role as HPC moves toward Exascale. A second panel is scheduled in which commercial companies from different sectors, such as finance, oil and gas, entertainment, and defense, will discuss their use of Lustre for their HPC parallel file system needs.
LUG 2013 is sponsored by OpenSFS, EOFS, and the Lustre community and includes vendor sponsorship from Aeon Computing, Bull, Cray, DataDirect Networks, Intel, NetApp, Warp Mechanics and Xyratex.
