HPC News with Snark: April 15, 2011

It’s April 15 and taxes are all you’re probably worried about today. It’s been an interesting week in HPC, though, so here are the news bits with snark:

  • SC11 proposals for Panels, Papers, and Cluster Competition are due 11:59 Eastern tonight! I’ve got a couple in the works, but now the pressure is on! Details here.
  • LUG Grows up. At LUG’2011, Lustre users wrapped their first community-run annual meeting this week with over 60 member organizations in attendance. That’s up 50 percent from last year, and now the popular open source file system seems to have a unified roadmap going forward. That means no dreaded code fork that worried so many.
  • EDGI Makes Volunteer Computing Easy. EDGI announced a demo of how easy it is to submit 10,000 jobs to a Volunteer Desktop Grid from within the European Grid Infrastructure. This demo at the EGI User Forum this week opens new possibilities for large scale HPC in the cloud.
  • Jobs! We need People Who Need People. Send us your job openings!
    • NCSA: Are you great at your job? Come work for NCSA! In fact, come work for public affairs at NCSA.
    • Linux Kernel Developer. This particular project is exploring ideas which include integrating the distributed shared memory system with the kernel of the Linux-CR project, user-mode Linux. This is an interesting project for someone who really loves both being a researcher and a hands-on coder. Added plus– the recruiter is a sweetie and a fan of my Flex Rex cartoons.
