In this video from LUG 2016 in Portland, Peter Bojanic presents an update on Lustre at Seagate Technologies.
At LUG 2016, Seagate announced it will incorporate Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre (IEEL), a big data software platform, into its market-leading ClusterStor storage architecture for high-performance computing. The move will strengthen Seagate’s HPC data storage product line and provide customers with an additional choice of Lustre parallel file systems to help drive advancements in the HPC and big data market. Through this new collaboration, Seagate will now adopt IEEL as its baseline Lustre distribution, bringing together the capabilities of the two leading Lustre distributions, development and support teams. The Lustre community, in turn, will benefit from two leading corporations collaborating to further advance the Lustre community roadmap.
Seagate will incorporate IEEL into ClusterStor L300, the industry’s highest-performing Lustre software based storage architecture. Released at Supercomputing 2015, the L300 delivers up to 112 gigabytes-per-second (GB/sec) throughput per rack when integrated with Seagate’s ClusterStor HPC drives, and includes features to help maximize reliability and reduce data center footprint, power and cooling costs while simplifying management and service. ClusterStor L300 with IEEL will also support Intel’s Omni-Path network built for Exascale computing.
