I'd be quite interested in hearing about that Brian.

I have to double check this with a couple folks here first but is there 
interest in hear about some of the stuff NASA has been up to with GPFS? I'd be 
tickled pink to share details on our GPFS activities:

- FPO/Hadoop efforts
- a site report (we're not *huge* but we're a modest Asize - 3600 nodes and 
almost 50PB at this point)
- demoing the monitoring dashboard we've created with influxdb and grafana.
- talk about the tools we've developed to deal with mass uid number changes on 
GPFS filesystems

November 13th]
Virginia Tech ARC purchased a SANDisk IF150 (IBM DeepFlash 150) this Summer and 
are just getting it into production (maybe next week).  I have some dev 
benchmarking numbers and may have production/user feedback by SC16.  I'm not 
sure I can fill an entire 30 minutes with worthwhile information, but I can 
give at least 15 minutes on:

Hello all,

There have been some questions about the Spectrum Scale Users Group event for 
SC16 and we thought it best to publish our draft agenda and continue to fill it 
in as details get settled. That way you can make your travel plans and 

The date and rough times are set, we may adjust the time range a bit depending 
upon the number of user talks that people would like to give. So note, yes! we 
are asking for user talks. Please consider doing this. We always receive 
positive feedback about talks given by users that describe real world 
experiences. If any of the user talk slots below are of interest to you, please 
let us know as soon as you can. We may turn at least one user talk into a panel 
if we can get enough participants.

As always, your feedback is welcome. This is a users group after all.

So, here’s what we have planned so far:

12:30 - 12:50 Welcome / Overview
