Today OpenSFS announced that Tommy Minyard from TACC has been elected the Community Representative Director for the 2013 term. The term runs from March to March each year.

From the early days, TACC has been a major supporter of the work OpenSFS has done leading Lustre and other open source file systems development. I thank the OpenSFS board for this vote of confidence. I really look forward to contributing in this role, squarely focused on the community,” said Tommy Minyard, Director of Advanced Computing Systems at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). “Lustre has come a long way in the past two years, but we need to continue to keep the community in the forefront. The more involvement, the stronger the community gets.”

Minyard replaces Stephen Simms from Indiana University who has served as Community Representative Director for an extremely successful 2012 term. Read the Full Story.
