Current Status: Adoption of ZFS as Backend File System for Lustre

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.”
