Cluster Events

News about Cluster and HPC events can be found here.

If you are in the North Jersey/New York/Connecticut (and even Pennsylvania) area put an X on April 6th, 2009. That is when the 7th annual Linux on Wall Street event takes place. This year it has the "High Performance" tag in case you thought the show was about desktop applications.

The show is free, but you have to pay to see the talks. Yours truly will be there wondering around and looking for free wifi. In the past some of the local user group regulars have met in the lounge at the Roosevelt after the show to talk about Life the Universe and Everything. I am working on getting the New York/North Jersey Area HUG restarted (High Performance User Group).

Want to learn about GP-GPU computing? Want to stay parked in your chair at the same time? If you answered yes to these two questions, then head over Microway and register for a Microway and Nvidia Tesla GPU webinar. The webinar will be held January 22nd, 2009 at 11 AM PST, 2 PM Eastern Time.

Full Press Release follows:

Last year by this time, Jeff Layton had a full summary of the first day. Quite frankly I'm not sure how he does it. I am sad to report that Jeff is out of commission for the first part of the week and that means I'm going to be reporting on things for now. The in-depth report will have to wait until later this week, however, I can give a few tidbits.

First, if you are at the show, come by the SC08 Music Room on Wednesday at 2:30PM to see Walt Ligon (of PVFS frame) perform. Those attending the Beowulf Bash had a preview last night, so I'm looking forward to tomorrows performance.

Speaking of the Beowulf Bash -- it was a great time (thanks sponsors). We must have had over 400 people and some fun with the dueling piano players. I'll be posting pictures soon. Unfortunately I did not get a picture of Lara laying on the piano.

Here is an SC moment. So I'm sitting at an empty table writing this update and a guy comes up with an extension cord. I look up and it is none other than Joel Adams of the Microwulf project. Right now Microwulf is sitting 3 feet from me and Joel is getting ready to give a presentation on Microwulf as part of the SC08 Education Program.

That is all for now, check back later for more news and a ClusterMonkey exclusive announcement!

Ready or not, here we come

Throw some socks and underwear in a bag and head to Austin next week because the FLOPS are calling. That is right, SC08 is almost here (November 15-21).

As usually Jeff and I will be bringing you show coverage, but I wanted to get one event on your calender. This year marks the ninth annual Beowulf Bash or Beobash as we call it. In many respects, the Beobash is like a yearly reunion of many of those who shaped today's HPC market.

This years party also represents the folding of another cluster event into the Beobash. If the Beobash is the family reunion, the LECCIBG are the naughty boys (and girls) playing cards, drinking, and smoking out behind the reception hall. The idea started out innocently enough, but the event grew bigger than anyone ever imagined (or would admit under oath). The whole sorted history of the LECCIBG can be found elsewhere.

This years sponsors are AMD, Cluster Monkey, NVidia, Panasas, Penguin/Sclyd Computing, Terascala, and XAND Marketing. Thanks for supporting the community.

See You There!

If you live or work in the New York/North Jersey Metropolitan area, mark your calender for Thursday June 19th. The NYCA-HUG (New York City Area HPC Users Group) will be trying to answer the ultimate question Torque or Sun Grid Engine? We will be discussing the pros/cons of each scheduler for HPC clusters. Come and add your experiences, wants, and rants. Then you decide.

This month we will be meeting in New Jersey at Tumulty's Pub in New Brunswick (Google Map) The Pub is also located near the New Brunswick train station. (directions) Look for a NYCA-HUG sign or bunch of cluster geek types. Meeting runs from 7-9PM.
