The LUG 2011 meeting of Lustre Users kicks off tomorrow in Orlando. To get things started, OpenSFS has just announced a request for proposals for “OpenSFS Phase 1 Lustre development.”
“The purpose of this RFP is to meet the highest priority Lustre requirements gathered from the community by the OpenSFS Technical Working Group with participation from OpenSFS participants and non-participants alike.”
As part of the RFP, an eye-opening table of Required Rates and Capacities provides details on where the open source file system is going:
April 15th, 2011 is the encouraged deadline for submitting intent and the proposal deadline is April 22nd.
The LUG 2011 conference has posted their agenda with presentations from a wide range of Lustre users and vendors from the community. The event, which runs April 12-14, will take place in Orlando, Florida.
This 2 1/2 day event is the primary venue for discussions and seminars on open source parallel file system technologies with a unique focus on the Lustre parallel file system. LUG 2011 is a user-led event with an organizing committee made up of representatives from Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique, Indiana University—Pervasive Technology Institute, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Naval Research Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and Texas Advanced Computing Center.
The Lustre community has issued its Call for Participation for LUG 2011, which will be held in Orlando, Florida, on April 12-14, 2011.
The LUG program committee would like to invite members of the Lustre community to submit presentation abstracts for inclusion in this year’s meeting. It is not necessary to submit a technical paper, just an abstract of your proposed talk no more than a page in length. Talks should target a half an hour in length and reflect the work that you or your site are doing with Lustre™. The deadline to submit presentation abstracts is February 14, 2011. For questions or to submit a presentation abstract, please refer to the LUG 2011 site.
