  • Lustre Community BoF: Enabling Big Data with Lustre
    Tuesday, November 17, 10:30am-12:00pm; Room 15
    Session Leaders: Charlie Carroll, Frank Baetke

    • Lustre is the leading open source file system for HPC. Since 2011 Lustre has transitioned to a community developed file system with contributors from around the world. Lustre is now more widely used and in more mission-critical installations than ever. Lustre supports many HPC and Data Analytics infrastructures including financial services, oil&gas, manufacturing, advanced web services, to basic science. At this year’s Lustre Community BoF the worldwide community of Lustre developers, administrators, and solution providers will gather to discuss challenges and opportunities emerging at the intersection of HPC and Data Analytics and how Lustre can continue to support them.
  • The Future of File Systems and Benchmarking, or Where Are We Going, and How Do We Know We Got There?
    Tuesday, November 17 2015, 5:30-7:30pm; Room 13B
    Session Leaders: Andrew Uselton, Devesh Tiwari, Ilene Carpenter

    • This BoF has been organized by the OpenSFS Benchmarking Working Group. The goal of this session is to discuss the current state of file system benchmarking practices, to identify the current gaps and to discuss how can we fill those gaps.In particular, we will discuss how to correctly, effectively, and efficiently benchmark large-scale storage/file-systems, the possible experimental methodology pitfalls, and how to avoid them.We will discuss the scalability of these practices for future emerging storage devices and beyond-petascale systems. As an outcome, we expect to release a document that will summarize our findings and areas that community needs to focus on.
