Video: Arm + Lustre in HPC

In this video from DDN booth at SC18, Brent Gorda from ARM presents: Arm + Lustre in HPC. At the show, DDN announced that its Whamcloud division is delivering professional support for Lustre clients on Arm architectures. With this support offering, organizations can confidently use Lustre in production environments, introduce new clients into existing Lustre infrastructures, and deploy Arm-based clusters of any size within test, development or production environments. As the use of Lustre continues to expand across HPC, artificial intelligence and data-intensive, performance-driven applications, the deployment of alternative architectures is on the rise.
