In this video from the LAD’15 Conference, Jessica Popp from Intel presents: Intel Commitment to Lustre.
“For High Performance Computing users who leverage open-source Lustre software, a good file system for big data is now getting even better. Building on its substantial contributions to the Lustre community, Intel is rolling out new features that will make the file system more scalable, easier to use, and more accessible to enterprise customers. These features, incorporated in Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre* 2.3, include support for Multiple Metadata Targets in the Intel Manager for Lustre* GUI. The Multiple Metadata Target feature allows Lustre metadata to be distributed across servers. Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre 2.3 supports remote directories, which allow each metadata target to serve a discrete sub-directory within the file system name space. This enables the size of the Lustre namespace and metadata throughput to scale with demand and provide dedicated metadata servers for projects, departments, or specific workloads. This latest Enterprise Edition for Lustre release supports clients running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.1 as well as client nodes running SUSE Linux Enterprise 12. Looking ahead, Intel is preparing to roll out new security, disaster recovery, and enhanced support features in Intel® Cloud Edition for Lustre 1.2, which will arrive later this year.”
