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.
