I’m not sure why it all happens at once but it often does. Last Monday I kicked off HPTS 2011 in Asilomar California and then flew to New York City to present at the Open Compute Summit.

I love HPTS. It’s a once every 2 year invitational workshop that I’ve been attending since 1989. The workshop attracts a great set of presenters and attendees: HPTS 2011 agenda. I blogged a couple of the sessions if you are interested:

· Microsoft COSMOS at HPTS

· Storage Infrastructure Behind Facebook Message

The Open Compute Summit was kicked off by Frank Frankovsky of Facebook followed by the legendary Andy Bechtolsheim of Arista Networks. I did a talk after Andy which was a subset of the talk I had done earlier in the week at HPTS.

· HPTS Slides: Internet-Scale Data Center Economics: Costs and Opportunities

· OCP Summit: Internet Scale Infrastructure Innovation

Tomorrow I’ll be at University of Washington presenting Internet Scale Storage at the University of Washington Computer Science and Engineering Distinguished Lecturer Series (agenda). Its open to the public so, if you are in the Seattle area and interested, feel free to drop by EEB-105 at 3:30pm (map and directions).
