“The annual Lustre report is segmented into three sections: Market Dynamics; The State of Lustre in 2014; and Intersect360 Research Analysis. The report also looks at market trends around file systems, exploring the past, present and future of Lustre in Big Data.”
“The OpenSFS Benchmarking Working Group (BWG) was created with the intent of defining an I/O benchmark suite to satisfy the requirements of the scalable parallel file system users and facilities. The first step toward this end was identified as characterization of I/O workloads, from small- to very large-scale parallel file systems, deployed at various high-performance and parallel computing (HPC) facilities and institutions. The characterization will then drive the design of the I/O benchmarks that emulate these workloads.”
