Warning: strftime() [function.strftime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Lustre: A scalable clustered filesystem
|Abstract||Lustre is an Open Source scalable, secure, robust, highly-available cluster file system. More than half of the top 10 supercomputers in the world use Lustre file systems.
Designed to meet the demands of the world's largest high-performance compute clusters, the Lustre file system redefines scalability and provides groundbreaking I/O and metadata throughput. An object-based cluster file system, Lustre currently supports tens of thousands of nodes, petabytes of data and billions of files.
The talk aims to cover the following:
- Very brief overview of Lustre
- Features currently being worked on by the community
- Details on what are the areas in which contributions can be made and how to get started
- Questions and Answers
Target audience are students or professionals familiar with filesystems, distributed systems or storage systems and interested in learning about and/or contributing to Lustre.
|Pre-requisites||Basic knowledge of Linux filesystems. Knowledge of storage concepts or distributed filesystems in a plus.|
|Speaker Profile||Kalpak did B.E. in Computer Engineering from Pune Institute of Computer technology in [*please mention the year*] and has been contributing to opensource projects since his college days. His primary interests are filesystem design, storage management and the Linux kernel. Some of his contribution to the ext3 and ext4 filesystems include Nanosecond timestamp support, Allowing > 32000 subdirectories, Multiple mount protection, FIEMAP ioctl, Faster filesystem checking, etc. He has also contributed to the e2fsprogs project with several bug fixes and features. Most of this work has been merged upstream while some is under discussion. He currently is working on Lustre (Opensource Highly Scalable distributed filesystem) as part of the Lustre engineering group at Sun Microsystems. He guides engineering students on projects in his free time, most of which have been feature additions to ext3/4 filesystems, like adding checksumming support and multi-threaded fsck.|
