The Sun Grid Engine, OpenStorage (Lustre and SAM-QFS) and HPC Developer Tools (HPC Cluster tools and SunStudio) teams are pleased to invite you to the Sun HPC Software Workshop '09

About the Workshop (Sep. 8th-10th)

This three-day workshop (Sep 8-10) contains three parallel tracks with presentation from Sun engineers, customers, community members, and partners about the Grid Engine open source project, Open Storage (including Lustre and SAM-QFS), and software tools such as Sun Studio and Sun HPC ClusterTools.

About the Seminars (Sep. 7th)

On Monday, Sep 7, three advanced seminars will be offered.

  • A special Lustre Advanced Technical Seminar is offered with senior Lustre engineers. They will discuss areas of the product they are working in and take questions and provide answers around tuning, configuration, and debugging.
  • An HPC Parallel Programming Seminar will teach aspects of parallel computing as well as provide a good understanding of the basics of the MPI and OpenMP programming models. Some basic understanding of C or Fortran will be helpful, but it is not a requirement.
  • The Grid Engine Administration Seminar will be a training class for Sun Grid Engine administrators who want to learn about administration facilities, expert configurations and best practices for complex use case scenarios. The class will be conducted by Sun Grid Engine experts and engineers.

These seminars are offered at an unbeatable fee and complement the following days of the workshop. Only limited seating is available for these classes.
