Greg DeKoenigsberg is the Vice President of Product and Community for Eucalyptus Systems, Inc., where he leads both the product direction and the company relationship with the broader open source community. Greg brings to Eucalyptus over a decade of open source advocacy and community leadership, with the majority of this time spent building and leading communities for open source leader Red Hat. While at Red Hat, Greg served in various community leadership roles, including senior community architect, leader of the Fedora project, chair of the first Fedora Project Board, and Red Hat community liaison with the One Laptop Per Child project.
Vic Iglesias is Director of Quality and Release at Eucalyptus Systems. He looks to enable end-users to build and qualify their production systems through open source projects and tools like Eutester, MicroQA, and EucaDev. Vic comes to Eucalyptus from Occam Networks where he worked on access network hardware.
Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres speak with Christian Mohrbacher and Sven Breuner about FraunhoferFS (FhGFS). FraunhoferFS (FhGFS) is the high-performance parallel file system from the Fraunhofer Competence Center for High Performance Computing. Its distributed metadata architecture has been designed to provide the scalability and flexibility that is required to run today's most demanding HPC applications.
Sven Breuner decided early to focus on design and development of performance-critical parallel and distributed applications. He joined the Fraunhofer Competence Center for High Performance Computing (CC-HPC) in 2005, after receiving his Bachelor degree in computer science with a thesis on process management on heterogeneous compute clusters. At Fraunhofer, he developed the initial architecture design of the Fraunhofer Parallel File System (FhGFS). In 2008, he received a Master degree in computer science with a thesis on efficient distributed metadata management in parallel file systems. With his substantial knowledge in storage systems, Linux kernel development and fast interconnects, he is currently leading the file system development team within the CC-HPC.
Christian Mohrbacher joined the Fraunhofer Competence Center for High Performance Computing in 2008 to complete his diploma thesis. There, he focused on parallel filesystems, especially FhGFS and joined the parallel file system group directly after receiving his degree in computer science.
Kathryn Mohror is a computer scientist on the Scalability Team (https://scalability.llnl.gov/) at the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). Kathryn’s research on high-end computing systems is currently focused on scalable fault tolerant computing and performance measurement and analysis. Her other research interests include scalable automated performance analysis and tuning, parallel file systems, and parallel programming paradigms. Kathryn has been working at LLNL since 2010.
Adam Moody works within the Livermore Computing Center at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. He supports people using computer center resources, and his focus lies in scalable communication algorithms and fault tolerance. He contributes to a number of open source software projects for high-performance computing including MPI, scalable process group representation and communications, parallel sorting, parallel file management, and the Scalable Checkpoint/Restart library. He graduated from The Ohio State University in 2003, and he is and always will be an avid fan of the Buckeyes.
