Today OpenSFS announced that Intel will roll out a new product on Wednesday called the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre.
We’re pleased to see Intel pushing Lustre in new directions and growing the Lustre ecosystem,” said Galen Shipman, OpenSFS Chairman. “This is a great example of the continued advancement and maturation of Lustre technology in the marketplace.”
Lustre has long been used in many of the world’s fastest supercomputing systems and is reportedly gaining much interest in areas such as banking, where speed and scalability are keys to success. If Intel can reduce the complexity of Lustre deployments and administration with the Chroma storage management technology it acquired with Whamcloud last year, the company may be able to sell Lustre into a whole new market.
Intel’s Moving Lustre Forward event starts at 11 am on June 12 at the Merchants Exchange Building in San Francisco. The event will also will be live-streamed (registration required).
