In this video from LAD’19 in Paris, Andreas Dilger from Whamcloud presents: Lustre Features and Future. Lustre is a massively parallel filesystem designed for high-performance, large-scale data. Lustre is mature and open source (GPLv2), running stably in production at many thousands of sites around the world. For a number of years, a majority of the world’s 100 fastest supercomputers have relied on Lustre for their storage needs. If you need lots of data fast and reliably, and value the flexibility of using a wide choice of block storage and want to become part of a world-wide open community, then Lustre is a good choice.

Lustre is a vibrant Open Source project with many organizations working on new features and improvements in parallel. We coordinate those efforts primarily through OpenSFS and EOFS. Meeting development target dates is a difficult task for any software project, but doubly so in a globally distributed Open Source project. We provide target dates for features where the development has demonstrated strong progress and maintained open communication with the community. However, it should be understood that the listed target dates are just an estimate, and no guarantee that the feature will appear in any particular release.

Andreas Dilger is CTO of Whamcloud, a division of DDN. Whamcloud is committed to providing and supporting the highest quality Lustre releases, and being active contributors to the Lustre community.
