LUG 2017 was held in Bloomington, Indiana from May 30-June 2nd.
The Open Scalable File Systems (OpenSFS) Lustre User Group (LUG) 2017 meeting was held at Bloomington, Indiana on May 30th – June 2nd, 2017. LUG is the premier event for the Lustre community and brings together developers, system architects and administrators, and users from all around the world to discuss the current status and future roadmap of Lustre.
The LUG 2017 event was hosted by Indiana University and sponsored by Data Direct Networks, Warp Mechanics, Intel, Indiana University, Aeon Computing, Cray, Seagate, and HGST. On May 30th, the Lustre Developers Day and Lustre Hackathon events, sponsored by UT-Battelle/Oak Ridge National Laboratory, were held as part of LUG 2017. The agenda, associated presentation materials, and soon videos of the presentations can be found at https://opensfs.org/lug-2017-agenda/. The LUG 2017 Program Committee was chaired by Stephane Thiell from Stanford University and Stephen Simms from Indiana University served as the LUG 2017 Chair.
It was evident from the attendance, presentations, and the discussions that the Lustre community is healthy, active, and growing. Lustre roadmap discussions and presentations were a clear indication that Lustre remains the choice for many high-performance computing facilities and data centers. Furthermore, new features like the Progressive File Layout (PFL), which is included in the upcoming Lustre version 2.10 Long Term Stable (LTS) release, paves the road for Lustre to be equipped with more enterprise-class features like File Level Redundancy. Additional details on the Lustre roadmap and upcoming new features can be found within Andreas Dilger’s (Intel) talk.
OpenSFS Board elections were also held as part LUG 2017. These elections concluded the re-organization and transition of OpenSFS as a Lustre user driven organization. Newly elected OpenSFS Board members and officers include: Sarp Oral (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) as President, Kevin Harms (Argonne National Laboratory) as Vice President, Ken Rawlings (Indiana University) as Secretary, Rick Wagner (Globus) as Treasurer, and Shawn Hall (BP) as the Director At Large.
