WARP sponsors ORNL/DoD International Workshop on Lustre Ecosystem

July 24th, Hanover, Maryland

WARP Mechanics is proud to sponsor the 3rd annual International Workshop on the Lustre Ecosystem. Teaming up with our partner, HGST, WARP will provide dinner and a reception Tuesday night for all attendees.
Separately, WARP’s CTO was invited to give a technical presentation on Wednesday morning: “Open Methodology for Managing Self-Encrypting Hard Drives with Lustre/ZFS”.
Encrypting data at rest for HPC systems is almost always desirable. But doing so in an open Lustre system involves cost and performance trade-offs. Software encryption imposes performance penalties undesirable in HPC systems, whereas hardware systems traditionally required vendor-locked and expensive proprietary approaches. This talk will discuss how WARP Mechanics architected a simple software solution for managing COTS hardware self-encrypting HDDs, to strike a balance using high performance hardware encryption with low cost open software.
