Why do we offer the training? We believe in Lustre. We think it is an incredible tool. We like teaching, and we enjoy what we learn from the many people that attend, their questions and their shared experiences. The class has no sales pitch, and no pressure to purchase Whamcloud support, proud as we are of the support we offer. The classes exist for you to learn how to install and administer Lustre.
In related news, the Lustre community will gather in Austin for LUG 2012 on April 23-25.
