IT Staff Training: Introduction to the Lustre File System

Friday, April 18, 2014
4:00 AM
2001 LSA

Please join us on Friday April 18th from 10:00 - 11:30am in room 2001 LSA. Brock Palen from the College of Engineering will present on Lustre, a massively parallel open source filesystem designed for high-performance, large-scale data. CAEN-HPC has been using Lustre for over 5 years and currently holds 909TB of storage in two Lustre filesystems, the fastest reaching 10GB/s, and sustained speeds over 2GB/s write and 500MB/s reads. Lustre is highly scalable, but amazingly simple design from the administrators perspective.

Note that the presentation will start a minute or two after 10:00 am, not on "Michigan time."

This presentation is one in a series of monthly IT Community trainings on the third Friday of each month, see The trainings are open to the public, so feel free to forward this message to anyone who may be interested in attending.
