A scalable, secure, robust, highly-available cluster file system.
Version: 1.8.0Lustre is a scalable, secure, robust, highly-available cluster file system. The project is designed, developed and maintained by Cluster File Systems, Inc.
Operating System: Linux
The central goal is the development of a next-generation cluster file system which can serve clusters with 10,000's of nodes, petabytes of storage, move 100's of GB/sec with state of the art security and management infrastructure.
Lustre runs today on many of the largest Linux clusters in the world, and is included by CFS's partners as a core component of their cluster offering (examples include HP StorageWorks SFS, and the Cray XT3 and XD1 supercomputers). Today's users have also demonstrated that Lustre scales down as well as it scales up, and run in production on clusters as small as 4 and as large as 15,000 nodes.
