Federico demonstrates his latest cluster build project


Nocluster: using an orthogonal strategy, we look at a build of a single two-socket host using 10-year old hardware to field 44 cores and 256 GB of RAM. Power consumption is on the high side, but so is performance.


Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director at Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux “Systems Management Czar” at SUSE.
