“The EGI federated cloud, which has been in development for the past 3 years has now entered production. Building on the tried and trusted EGI core services we have added federated IaS compute and storage services, utilising open standards to support more than 10 pilot communities. We will discuss the model of federation, and the different application design models that the users use and why cloud will be a success when compared with grid due to this inherent flexibility.”
In this video from the LAD’14 Conference in Reims, Gabriele Paciucci from Intel presents: Current Status of the Adoption of ZFS as Backend File System for Lustre. “With the release of Lustre 2.4 support for ZFS Lustre servers has arrived. Historically, Lustre has only supported ext4/ldiskfs servers and while those servers have performed well they do suffer from a number of well known limitations. Extending Lustre to use a next generation filesystem like ZFS allows it to achieve greater levels of scalability and introduces new functionality.”
