This week SGI announced that it is expanding its support of the Lustre file system to include Level 3 support. The company recently joined OpenSFS, a non-profit with goals to increase collaboration, communicate requirements to Lustre developers, and support a release of Lustre fashioned to the group’s needs.

OpenSFS was designed to create a community around open-source scalable file systems, focusing on further stabilizing Lustre and extending it to serve the needs of next generation exascale machines,” said Norman Morse, OpenSFS president and CEO. “SGI’s investment in Lustre and participation in this organization is a valuable contribution to that effort.”
