Working With Parallel File Systems on Comet

Presented on March 12, 2019, by Manu Shantharam, Ph.D.

In this webinar, we will learn about the file systems that are part of the SDSC's Comet supercomputer. First, we will provide a brief overview of the Comet File System and introduce the various file systems within Comet. We will discuss the pros and cons of using these file systems in terms of I/O performance, storage capacity, shared access, backup and so on. Additionally, we will illustrate the basic usage of the Lustre File System, Comet's high-performance parallel file system.
