From 2013 to 2014: Lustre in Motion

Largest Annual OpenSFS Development Budget Ever, Membership Expansion, Strong Growth in Lustre Vendor Ecosystem

BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 -- Open Scalable File Systems (OpenSFS), the premier non-profit organization advancing and coordinating the Lustre® file system community is excited to announce highlights from 2013 showing strong momentum in development budgets, membership rolls, and vendor support. Along with a deep commitment to keeping the Lustre file system open and free, in 2013 OpenSFS welcomed two new Participants -- Fujitsu and NCSA -- while Intel moved up to Promoter level and joined the OpenSFS board.

In 2013, OpenSFS's total direct financial support for the technical development and maintenance of the Lustre file system reached well over $3 million, its largest to date.

Also in 2013, OpenSFS advanced its communications and marketing efforts, installed a professional management infrastructure, supported development of enhanced feature availability, and built a significantly stronger foundation for the Lustre vendor ecosystem.

"Looking back on 2013 and seeing the growth and development of not only OpenSFS, but also the Lustre community as a whole, makes us extremely excited," said Galen Shipman, OpenSFS Chairman. "Lustre is healthier than ever, and is continuing to grow as new features like Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) and Distributed Namespace (DNE) are being added that will directly benefit HPC, Big Data, and Enterprise users."

For 2014, OpenSFS will focus on its commitment to the Lustre community by facilitating the promotion, protection, and advancement of Lustre through working groups, sponsorship of community events, and direct funding of Lustre development. OpenSFS is committed to improved communications and building great content for Lustre developers and users including our first annual OpenSFS Lustre Report.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to tran...
