OpenSFS has and will continue to play an important role in the evolving Lustre ecosystem. As this year's occupant of the community board seat, I will do my best to support Lustre's forward motion, represent the members of the Lustre community, and promote broader engagement with the community."

The OpenSFS Board of Directors has issued the following statement: "Simms has a real heart for the Lustre community and a mind for the technology. His passion and expertise have been instrumental to the success of OpenSFS. We're very excited to have him involved again in OpenSFS leadership."

Simms replaces Tommy Minyard, director of Advanced Computing Systems at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), who has served as Community Representative Director for an extremely successful 2013 term. The OpenSFS board of directors would like to sincerely thank Minyard for his exceptional service as a representative and leader of the OpenSFS community.
