Subject: An Invitation for a Free Webcast: Rocks Cluster and Object Storage
To: "'pr@lugod.org'" <pr@lugod.org>

June 23, 2005

Panasas invites you and your members to attend a complimentary, online
seminar that describes how Stanford University's Institute for Computational
and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) achieved exceptional performance and
maximum utilization with its Linux cluster.  In particular, the seminar will
provide details on how the Institute combined Rocks software with an
object-based storage system to increase the productivity of its cluster. 

Rocks Clusters and Object Storage
Wednesday, June 29, 2005, 11:00 AM PDT
Researchers at ICME use HPC as part of a comprehensive research program.
These systems are used to better predict flutter and limit cycle
oscillations for modern aircraft, to better understand the impact of
turbulent flow on jet engines, and to develop computational methodologies
that can facilitate the design of naval systems with lower signature levels.
This research can lead to improvements in the performance and safety of
aircraft, reduction of engine noise, which will improve the quality of life
for people living near airports, and new underwater navigation systems. 
To accomplish this, ICME needed a cluster to tackle large-scale simulations
of flow/structure interaction, aeroacoustic, and elasto-acoustic scattering
problems.  Join us in discussing how ICME utilized the 164-node Nivation
Linux cluster and object-based storage to create a system that is scalable,
easy to integrate and manage, and delivers extremely high bandwidth and
random I/O.
Register for this informative online seminar to: 
* Hear the challenges ICME faced in building a cluster capable of handling
complex mathematical simulations
* Learn how object storage systems, like those of Panasas, break I/O
bottlenecks hindering cluster performance
* Hear Steve Jones' personal experience in managing large-scale Rock
clusters and the integration of the Panasas ActiveScale Storage Cluster
Highlighted Speakers
Steve Jones, Technology Operations Manager, Institute for Computational and
Mathematical Engineering, Stanford University 
Larry Jones, Vice President of Product Marketing, Panasas
