@HPCpodcast: HPC Storage Rock Star Gary Grider Talks How We Got Here and Where We’re Going

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Shahin and I are in violent agreement: if you’re interested in high performance storage, if major milestone in the development of HPC storage technology over the last 30-plus years interests you, if you want a peek at future forward leaps in HPC storage technology, then this is an @HPCpodcast episode for you.

Our special guest is HPC storage rock star Gary Grider, leader of the high performance computing division of Los Alamos National Laboratory and a leading light of advanced storage solutions for four decades. Grider has led, driven, helped fund, instigated, influenced and otherwise significantly touched nearly every storage technology out there, from Lustre to burst buffers to Ceph (software-defined object storage) to computational storage to the Grand Unified File Index (GUFI) and on and on. Among the topics discussed: how storage is changing with AI, and what is next in HPC storage.

We also offer “Top of the News,” which includes quantum computing metrics and Quantiniuum passing Quantum Volume  of 4096,   investigation of war crimes in Ukraine using facial recognition, streaming video analytics and other AI techniques and open source intelligence, a funding opportunity for Mathematical Multifaceted Integrated Capability Centers and TSMC’s quarterly revenues.
