Lustre

Posted by Parth Barot on January 11, 2006

Lustre is a scalable, secure, robust, highly-available cluster file system. It is designed, developed and maintained by Cluster File Systems, Inc.

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 2000 nodes.

The latest version of Lustre is always available from Cluster File Systems, Inc. Public Open Source releases of Lustre are made under the GNU General Public License. These releases are found here, and are suitable for clusters with thousands of nodes and hundreds of terabytes of storage.
