In this video, Kyle Lamb from the Infrastructure Team at Los Alamos National Lab describes the unique challenges he faces at a facility known for being at the forefront of technology. Kyle addresses the future of storage for High Performance Computing and the ways LANL is partnering with Seagate to tackle the changes on the horizon.

Why Storage Matters to Scientists

Tom Wilkie, Scientific Computing World

As the Large Hadron Collider restarts at Cern, data storage has become as important to scientists as compute power. But, as Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World reports, the innovative technologies being developed have much wider applications.

Today Seagate announced that it is combining its Cloud Storage, High Performance Computing, and Electronic Solutions groups to further align the company’s full breadth of enterprise storage hardware capabilities.

Video: Understanding Hadoop Performance on Lustre

Hadoop Cluster

“In this talk, Seagate presents details on its efforts and achievements around improving Hadoop performance on Lustre including a summary on why and how HDFS and Lustre are different and how those differences affect Hadoop performance on Lustre compared to HDFS, Hadoop ecosystem benchmarks and best practices on HDFS and Lustre, Seagate’s open-source efforts to enhance performance of Lustre within “diskless” compute nodes involving core Hadoop source code modification (and the unexpected results), and general takeaways ways on running Hadoop on Lustre more rapidly.”

Video: Lustre Network (LNET) Router Configuration and Tuning

“n this session, Seagate covers configuration guidelines and tuning of LNET Routing from InfiniBand to Ethernet using Lustre 2.1 through 2.6 server/clients as well demonstrating performance results by means of a synthetic benchmark called IOR. In addition, this presentation includes the topic of LNET Router failure and recovery during I/O as well as what environments can expect during these failure events.”

Introduction to the Lustre File System

Although there are a number of truly huge implementations of Lustre today, the community is still far from reaching the maximum configurations that the Lustre architecture is designed for. Inside the Lustre File System describes the basics of how the Lustre File System operates with descriptions of the newest features.

Video: New and Improved Lustre Performance Monitoring Tool
