The first ceph + htc/hpc/science virtual user group meeting is tomorrow Wednesday August 28th at 10:30am us eastern/4:30pm eu central time. Duration will be kept to <= 1 hour.

I'd like this to be conducted as a user group and not only one person talking/presenting. For this first meeting I'd like to get input from everyone on the call regarding what field they are in and how ceph is used as a solution for their implementation. We'll see where it goes from there. Use the pad link below to get to a url for live meeting notes.

Meeting connection details from the ceph community calendar:

We're going to hold off until August for this so we can promote it on the Ceph twitter with more notice. Sorry for the inconvenience if you were planning on the meeting tomorrow. Keep a watch on the list, twitter, or ceph calendar for updates.

We've had some positive feedback and will be moving forward with this user group. The first virtual user group meeting is planned for July 24th at 4:30pm central European time/10:30am American eastern time. We will keep it to an hour in length. The plan is to use the ceph bluejeans video conferencing and it will be put on the ceph community calendar. I will send out links when it is closer to the 24th.

The goal of this user group is to promote conversations and sharing ideas for how ceph is used in the the scientific/hpc/htc communities. Please be willing to discuss your use cases, cluster configs, problems you've had, shortcomings in ceph, etc... Not everyone pays attention to the ceph lists so feel free to share the meeting information with others you know that may be interested in joining in.

Contact me if you have questions, comments, suggestions, or want to volunteer a topic for meetings. I will be brainstorming some conversation starters but it would also be interesting to have people give a deep dive into their use of ceph and what they have built around it to support the science being done at their facility.

Hey all,

At cephalocon some of us who work in scientific computing got together for a BoF and had a good conversation. There was some interest in finding a way to continue the conversation focused on ceph in scientific computing and htc/hpc environments. We are considering putting together monthly video conference user group meeting to facilitate sharing thoughts and ideas for this part of the ceph community. At cephalocon we mostly had teams present from the EU so I'm interested in hearing how much community interest there is in a ceph+science/HPC/HTC user group meeting. It will be impossible to pick a time that works well for everyone but initially we considered something later in the work day for EU countries.

Reply to me if you're interested and please include your timezone.
