Sun HPC Software Workshop '09 -- Early Bird's Almost Over!

Just wanted to remind everyone that the early bird registration for the Sun HPC Software Workshop '09, Sept 7-10 in Regensburg, Germany, ends tomorrow (31 July 2009). It's your last chance to sign up at the discounted rate. After tomorrow, you will still be able to register, but the cost of registration will be higher.

In a nutshell, the Sun HPC Software Workshop '09 is a combination of our annual Grid Engine Workshop, a European edition of the popular Lustre Users Group meeting, and a conference on developing applications and services for HPC and cloud environments. The Workshop lasts three days, with a presentation track representing each of these topics. One the day before the main Workshop starts, we're also holding deeper technology seminars: a Lustre Deep Dive, a Grid Engine admin training, and a class on parallel application development taught by Ruud van der Pas. The Workshop and the preceding seminars are an excellent opportunity to learn more about these technologies and connect with the product engineers, partners, and other community members.

There is an open Call for Presentations for the Workshop, but it also closes tomorrow. If you're interested in proposing a talk for the Workshop (and getting a discounted registration fee if it's accepted), send a title, duration, and brief summary to the email address listed on the Agenda page. But, hurry. We'll be making our final decisions and notifying the speakers soon.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Grid Infrastructure Infrastructure

Owen Taylor (formerly) of GigaSpaces has put together an excellent proof of concept using GigaSpaces XAP and Sun Grid Engine. Using Sun Grid Engine, the PoC is able to grow and shrink the size of the GigaSpaces cluster dynamically according to changing load conditions. The PoC monitors GigaSpaces via JMX and then uses DRMAA to submit new instances to SGE or stop existing ones. Read more about it.
