Lustre on ZFS at SSEC

In this video from the LAD’13 Lustre Developer Conference, Scott Nolin from the University of Wisconsin presents: Lustre on ZFS at SSEC.

With the release of Lustre 2.4 support for ZFS Lustre servers has arrived. Historically, Lustre has only supported ext4/ldiskfs servers and while those servers have performed well they do suffer from a number of well known limitations. Extending Lustre to use a next generation filesystem like ZFS allows it to achieve greater levels of scalability and introduces new functionality.
