Hi All,

Our monthly plug meeting is coming up this Tuesday (Tuesday the 8th of
September) the meeting is at the usual time and place; Spacecubed, 45 St
Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000 arrive at 18:30 for a 19:00 start and we are
planning on putting on a Subway platter for the event this time.

This month we are delighted to have Matthew Wallis from Direct Data
Networks talking to us about High Performance Computing.

Matt has been working in IT for nearly 20 years, and has spent the last 10
working in High Performance Computing, starting with the engineering team
at VPAC (now V3), moving on to IBM, and now DDN. In this presentation he’s
happy to be steered by the audience, but generally will cover

Different types of HPC, and the different workloads that might suit.
Software challenges
Hardware challenges with some discussion of Exascale
User, scheduler and political challenges
Parallel file systems that are my current focus
