Farewell Campus Ambassador program and move to HPC
By Zhiqi Tao on Sep 16, 2008
It was a very enjoyable experience for me to be a part of the
ambassador program. The time spent working with Sun technologies is
extreme fulfilling. I do feel that CA community is a large family and
we look after each other.
I must say, I sincerely appreciate my program manager, Ganesh Hiregoudar, the most. Although I have not had the honor to meet him in person yet, I learned countless from his supervision and wisdom.
I've now joined Linux HPC stack team full time. If you or any of students and staffs in your universities are interested in cluster computing, high performance computing and distributed file systems, please for sure recommend Sun HPC technologies, particularly, Lustre file systems, which is the only real competitor to IBM's GPFS. 7 out of 10 world fastest super computers are powered by Lustre. And, it is Sun technology, of course it is open source!
I have passed on the Campus Ambassador role in University of Melbourne to Mohammed Jubaer Arif. He is very passionate about Sun
technologies. I believe his contribution of campus ambassador program
would be exceptional. In a very short time that he is on this role, Arif has already made several interesting proposals.
To everyone in the CA program: great job! My best wishes to all of you!
