BEAVERTON, Ore., Jun 13 -- Open Scalable File Systems (OpenSFS), the premier participant-supported, vendor-neutral, and non-profit organization supporting and coordinating the High Performance Computing (HPC) open source file system community, announced today, in cooperation with the European Open File System (EOFS) community group, its expanded participation in International Supercomputing (ISC) 2013.
ISC'13 will be held in Leipzig, Germany, this year from June 16 - 20. Several events have been planned during ISC'13 highlighting Lustre usage beyond HPC, including scalability for Big Data workloads.
"ISC is the biggest supercomputing show in Europe and is an excellent forum for community discussions around the advancement of Lustre and other open source file systems," said Galen Shipman, OpenSFS Chairman. "The Lustre file system has been used for nearly a decade in HPC and has continued to advance, both in terms of scalability and reliability. These advances have enabled the Lustre file system to tackle a variety of challenges, many extending well beyond traditional HPC to the broader Big Data space."
"Lustre is now being used to handle large-scale and 'high-value' data," said Tommy Minyard, OpenSFS Community Representative Director. "In the oil and gas space we are seeing Lustre being used for both data analysis workloads and as a long-term storage solution for high-value seismic and reservoir data sets. We'll be using ISC to look into these kinds of use cases and much more."
OpenSFS/EOFS ISC13 Schedule
The OpenSFS / EOFS booth is number 515.
