Today Whamcloud announced a support agreement with the CEA French Atomic Energy Commission to provide Level 3 Lustre support on a project basis. CEA’s main system, the Tera100, runs Lustre supported by Whamcloud and their partner Bull.
“It’s CEA’s mission to look deep into a wide range of energy, defense and IT research topics. Making sure our high performance computing clusters are running smoothly is key, and it is the main reason we are working with Whamcloud,” said Jacques-Charles Lafoucrière, Chef de Service at CEA. “Lustre is a great file system for our types of projects. And nobody supports Lustre better than Whamcloud.”
Whamcloud will demo Lustre technologies at ISC next week in booth #843.
