Powered by Lustre, The Comet supercomputer is designed to be part of an emerging cyberinfrastructure for what is called the ‘long tail’ of science, which encompasses the idea that a large number of modest-sized computationally based research projects still represents, in aggregate, a tremendous amount of research and scientific impact
Today OpenSFS announced the expansion of the Lustre User Group (LUG) conferences to the Asia-Pacific Region (APAC). The first Asian LUGs will take place in Beijing, China, on October 15, 2013, followed by Tokyo, Japan, on October 17, 2013. There’s really no substitute for face-to-face technical discussions with plenty of chance for in depth […]
In the coming years the new international accelerator facility FAIR, one of the largest research projects worldwide, will be built at GSI. At FAIR an unprecedented variety of experiments will be possible. Scientists from all over the world will be able to gain new insights into the structure of matter and the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to the present.
In this video from the LAD’13 Lustre Developer Conference, Aurélien Degrémont, CEA from CEA presents: Lustre/HSM Binding is There! HSM client support is an important milestone for Lustre-HSM projectm which has been going on for while. Lustre-HSM enables Lustre to be readily used for tiered storage. Using a cloud storage as the second tier with […]
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.
