Domaine Pommery, Reims – France
Organized by EOFS and OpenSFS in collaboration with the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne
LAD’14 will take place in Reims, France, at Domaine Pommery during 2 days, on September 22-23, 2014. This will be a great opportunity for worldwide Lustre administrators and developers to gather and exchange their experiences, developments, tools, good practices and more!
Reims is reachable by train from Paris downtown and CDG Airport in about 45 minutes by the TGV, France’s high speed rail line.
We are waiting for your registration and presentation proposal!

We are inviting community members to send proposals for presentations at this event. No proceeding is required, just an abstract of a 30-min (technical) presentation.
Please send this to [email protected] before July 25th, 2014.
Topics may include (but are not limited to): site updates or future projects, Lustre administration, monitoring and tools, Lustre feature overview, Lustre client performance (hot topic ;-), benefits of hardware evolution to Lustre (like SSD, many-cores…), comparison between Lustre and other parallel file systems (perf. and/or features), Lustre and Exascale I/O, etc.
Registration for the workshop is now open (early-bird rate):
We also recommend booking your hotel in downtown Reims as soon as possible.
On Monday evening, there will be a guided visit of Pommery Champagne cellars followed by a social dinner on site. A limited number of spouses can attend too (on a first-come, first-served basis). Register quickly!
This event is organized thanks to the following generous sponsors:
CEA, DataDirect Networks and Intel
We expect more sponsors to be confirmed soon. Please contact [email protected] if your company wants to sponsor LAD.

I/O Characterization of Large-Scale HPC Centers — Benchmarking Working Group, OpenSFS (PDF)
The OpenSFS Benchmarking Working Group (BWG) was created with the intent of defining an I/O benchmark suite to satisfy the requirements of the scalable parallel file system users and facilities. The first step toward this end was identified as characterization of I/O workloads, from small scale to very large scale parallel file systems, deployed at various highCperformance and parallel computing (HPC) facilities and institutions. The characterization will then drive the design of the I/O benchmarks that emulate these workloads.
As part of the characterization, the BWG released a survey at the Supercomputing Conference in 2012, to solicit participation and collect data on file systems and workloads in HPC centers. This paper summarizes the data collected and our analysis.
Lustre community! The OpenSFS Community Development Working Group wants to ensure that future Lustre releases are well-aligned with your needs. Help make sure your organization’s voice is heard by completing this short survey!
The deadline is this Friday, March 14th. Please fill out the survey today!
Top 5 reasons are here.
The preliminary agenda for LUG 2014 in April is now online.
The OpenSFS Community Development Working Group is gathering data from organizations using Lustre in order to develop a long-term support strategy recommendation going forward. We want to ensure that future Lustre releases are well-aligned with the needs of the Lustre community.
Please complete this short survey to make sure that your organization’s voice is heard!
Note that all questions are optional you may submit a partially completed survey if you prefer.
Registration for LUG 2014 is now open. Register by March 17 to take advantage of the special early-bird registration rate!

OpenSFS and the Lustre Community were at Supercomputing 2013 (SC’13) in Denver, November 18-21.
Presentations from our BoF session and related talks on the SC’13 show floor will be posted shortly.
