In this video from the LAD’14 Conference in Reims, Gabriele Paciucci from Intel presents: Current Status of the Adoption of ZFS as Backend File System for Lustre. “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.”

“DDN presents some key features of the SFA12KX such as partial rebuild and QoS for reads which are quite unique in HPC. We also discuss the latest performance results from Lustre benchmarking, particularly as they apply to awkward workloads such as seen in genomics or energy exploration, that require both streaming and transactional performance. In this talk, we present an evaluation of transactional performance and scalability in Lustre today, including random read and write performance, small file performance, and metadata performance as run on DDN SFA12KX systems.”
