Over at the Cray Blog, Jason Goodman writes that while Cray has delivered some of the world’s largest Lustre file systems, it is the spirit of community and collaboration that drives innovation for the popular open source file system.
There has been some mention of Lustre achieving 1TB/s to a single file system. Through the evolution and maturity of Lustre, and support from partner companies, we have worked hard to deploy and achieve sustained aggregate throughput of 1TB/s to a single (23 petabyte) file system for the NCSA Blue Waters project. Everyone at Cray is extremely proud of this accomplishment, and honored to provide Blue Waters users with application-centric computing and storage built on Lustre.
In related news, the Lustre User Group conference will take place in San Diego April 16-18. We’ll be on hand for live coverage from the event, so be sure to tune in here for presentations, interviews, and more from the show.
