Lustre & Kerberos: In Theory and In Practice

lug

“Kerberos is the most famous way to allow safe communications over a non-secure network, by providing authentication and encryption. This presentation will show how far Lustre can go in Kerberos security, and what kind of authentication and encryption we can get to work. We will also take an interest in the impact of various Kerberos flavors over performance.”

Interview: Intel Taking Lustre into New Markets

Brent Gorda, GM, Intel High Performance Data Division

“It’s been nearly three years since Intel acquired Whamcloud and its Lustre engineering team. With Intel’s recent announcement that Lustre will power the 2018 Aurora supercomputer at Argonne, we took the opportunity to catch up with Brent Gorda, general manager of Intel High Performance Data Division at Intel Corporation.”

“Lustre’s original feature set targeted the workflows of the leading DOE labs who funded and supported its development. As the Lustre ecosystem grows, the workflows Lustre must support are becoming increasingly diverse, demanding corresponding expansion of its core feature set and the subsystems that operate around it. This talk describes how Lustre is maturing and growing to support the sometimes conflicting demands imposed by this diversity and outlines some significant areas for future development with a view to promoting ongoing discussion in the community.”
