In this special guest feature, Ken Strandberg offers this live report from Day 3 of the Lustre User Group meeting in Portland. “Rick Wagner from San Diego Supercomputing Center presented progress on his team’s replication tool that allows copying large blocks of storage from object storage to their disaster recovery durable storage system. Because rsync is not a tool for moving massive amounts of data, SDSC created recursive worker services running in parallel to have each worker handle a directory or group of files. The tool uses available Lustre clients, a RabbitMQ server, Celery scripts, and bash scripts.”
