“At this point, I think it actually really makes sense for the community as a whole to fork Lustre, rename it OpenSFS, remove all the branding IP, and make it GPL/MIT/BSD licensed.

“Once in production we will be providing OLCF users with more than 1 terabyte per second file system performance at the top end,” said Sarp Oral, the task lead for File and Storage Systems projects in the Technology Integration Group, within the National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS). “At that speed we expect Spider II to be safely in league with the top three parallel file systems in the world.”
In this video from SC13, Torben Kling-Petersen from Xyratex describes the company’s new Grid RAID and ClusterStor 9000 data storage technologies.
