Comet Webinar: Working With File Systems on Comet

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT

This event will be held remotely.

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.
