In memorandum: Memorial Pending for NERSC's Mike Welcome.
Mike came to NERSC from the Future Technologies Group in CRD, where he worked on two projects: porting GASNet via PORTALS to the Cray XT3/4 and performance optimizations on a class of multigrid solvers for AMR used in combustion and type 1a supernovae simulations. Mike's experiences in HPC software development, multi-threaded C programming, and complex software debugging directly apply to NERSC's involvement in the HPSS software development collaboration. Mike primarily helps the group in its efforts to define a specific and more major role in HPSS development.

Presentation of Storage Systems Group findings from a year-long effort to collect and analyze Media Information Record (MIR) statistics from our in-production Oracle enterprise tape drives at NERSC. We provide information on the data collected, and some highlights from our analysis. The presentation is primarily intended to declare that the information in the MIR is important to users or customers to better operating and managing their tape environments.
