First up: this podcast. The Radio Free HPC team discusses Lustre and LUG 2013 with Brent Gorda. Now part of Intel in their High Performance Data Division, Gorda was CEO of Whamcloud when the company was acquired last summer. Gorda recently wrote a post about the rapid growth of the Lustre community, so we started our discussion there and learned a good deal more about the popular file system.
Followed by… an interview with Fritz Ferstl, CTO of Univa. Topics include Big Data, HPC, and their continuing convergence. Ferstl shares his unique perspective on where the two worlds overlap and the areas with great potential for synergy in the future.
