Condor Week 2012

May 11, 2012

Condor Week 2012 was last week. As in past years there was great representation from the research community. We learned how research of all sizes and shapes is benefiting from high throughput computing resources.

A number of enterprises also turned up to talk about their uses of Condor, even if they didn’t bring slides. DreamWorks Animation was present to tell us how our favorite movies are being created with Condor.

I got to talk about Condor’s developer community, and still want to hear from anyone who has tried or would like to contribute to the Condor project. That probably means you!

Condor Week 2010

April 25, 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.
