Vendors Step Up: Lustre Users Have Options

Dave Raffo from the Storage Soup blog writes that support alternatives are available for Lustre users.

Since late last year, Xyratex acquired ClusterStor for its Lustre expertise, start-up Whamcloud started aggressively hiring Lustre developers and partnering with hardware vendors on support deals, and Cray, DataDirect Networks (DDN), Lawrencey Livermore and Oak Ridge National labs launched OpenSFS.org. DDN last week launched a promotional offer to provide Lustre customers a third year of support for free if they purchase a two-year DDN file system support contract. The support comes through DDN’s alliance with Whamcloud.”
