General Information

The Spectrum Scale Usergroup Singapore will feature a number of Spectrum Scale (GPFS) experts presenting on a wide variety of topics on Spectrum Scale.

This event hopes to provide you with the opportunity to hear the latest Spectrum Scale updates from the filesystem and storage experts as well as hear from other users and technical experts on their experiences and uses of Spectrum Scale. 

You need to register for tickets with an organisational or company email, not your personal/private email address, as this event is for professionals working in the storage area or with GPFS/Spectrum Scale.

If you have questions to ask, you can email the organiser or prepare them for the day and the open session in the morning.

Tickets are available, the agenda is being finalised.

This event is expected to have cocktails immediately afterwards the event on Monday.

Speakers - you only need a speakers ticket and a Monday night cocktails event ticket, you don't need to pick up a General/Technical Session ticket as well.

This event is a http://spectrumscale.org/ event in Singapore.

Whilst the user group is open to all Spectrum Scale users, please note that the user group is a forum for technical discussion and is not a sales opportunity

Is this an IBM-run event?

No. The Spectrum Scale user group is not part of IBM, we are a community of users, ISVs, VARs and have a number of IBM staff as members of the group. To enable us to bring developers from IBM to speak, we work closely with IBM to run user group events.

What's the focus of the event?

It's to continue the techncial briefings of the usergroup (UG) in Singapore, and to provide a technical forum of discussion for those working with Spectrum Scale(GPFS) and storage in Singapore and in the Asia-Pacific region.

I have an idea for a talk, how can I get a slot?

Contact Chris Schlipalius gpfsugaus@gmail.com or at my Pawsey Supercomputing Centre email address (please Google the Pawsey staff contacts list).

How do I join the group?

There are no tickets left, can I still attend?

Can I update my registration information?

Yes, please email the organiser gpfsugaus@gmail.com

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes please.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

No.
