Condor Week 2010

Condor Week 2010 concluded about a week ago. As always, it included interesting talks from academic and corporate users about the advances they are making enabled by Condor. It also had updates on development over the past year both at UW and Red Hat, and plans for the future.

I got to present an update on what Red Hat is doing with Condor, including configuration management, fostering transparency, performance enhancements, cloud integration, and new features.

Will Benton presented his and Rob Rati’s work on configuration management with Wallaby. Definitely something to keep an eye on.

With all the interesting talks there are many opportunities to see great advances. I found Greg Thain’s talk on High Throughput Parallel Computing (HTPC) especially interesting as it marks completion of a cycle in how resources are modeled in a batch scheduler.
