“One of the benefits of our ClusterStor modular architecture is its flexibility – we can deliver a very comparable performance with either Lustre or Spectrum Scale on the same extensible architecture. There are two key reasons for that balance of performance and flexibility. Firstly, we have a unique scale out storage architecture with a distributed processing model, meaning you’re not tied to a centralized legacy RAID controller hardware. Secondly, there is no proprietary hardware or RAID firmware in the system. All the software runs in a standard Linux environment, so we are able to take our software stack and it is really agnostic as to whether we are running with Lustre or SS.”
In this video from SC14, Torben Kling-Petersen from Seagate describes an upcoming deployment of a 55 Petabyte Lustre file system in Hamburg, Germany. The ClusterStor deployment will be the most energy-efficient file system of its kind in the world upon installation.
In this video from SC14, Ken Claffey from Seagate describes how the company is doubling down on high performance computing with its ClusterStor technology. Full Transcript: Ken Claffey: Hey Rich. Good to see you again. insideHPC: Oh, yeah. It’s always a pleasure. You Xyratex guys are like family. Ken Claffey: Another year rolls around, it’s […]

Today Cray announced the launch of a new data management and protection solution for Lustre file systems.
“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. Have OpenSFS own the copyrights/IP, have vendors sign up to support it. Sort of like the Linux foundation. And what CentOS does with RedHat.”
