Why Cray is Backing Lustre and OpenSFS

Over at the Cray Blog, Cory Spitz writes that Cray is backing the Lustre file system and its OpenSFS community in a big way. In fact, the company is looking to hire more people with Lustre skills.

At Cray, we are a big user and investor in Lustre. Because Lustre is such a great fit for HPC, we deploy it with almost all of our systems. We even sell and deliver Lustre storage independent of Cray compute systems. But Lustre is not (yet) the perfect solution for distributed and parallel-I/O, so Cray invests a lot of time and resources into improving, testing, and honing it. We collaborate with the open-source Lustre community on those enhancements and development. In fact, Cray is a leader in the Lustre community through our involvement in OpenSFS.

Spitz goes on to remind the Lustre community that LAD ’14 is coming up Sept. 22-23 in Reims, France.
