GPFS User Group #2 report

Minutes from GPFS User Group Meeting 2 – Tuesday 5th April 2011

Hosted by University of Birmingham


Barry Evans (OCF) started off with a quick introduction welcoming everyone and outlining the agenda for the day.

Due to technical reasons, the morning agenda changed and the presentations started with a presentation on CEDAR and future projects from AWE and the experiences they have had using GPFS. A number of questions were raised by the audience about their experiences. Jim Roche suggested that the group feeds their requirements into a ‘wish list’ of items that IBM can then use as a formal mechanism to respond to. It was requested that clearance is obtained for the presentation slides and that they are made available retrospectively to group members.

Jez Tucker (Rushes) then presented on the systems used at Rushes and their experiences and challenges. Followed up with questions from the group.
