New to Lustre

Lustre is a massively parallel filesystem typically used in domains where high-performance, large-scale data is critical.

Lustre is mature, free (GPL2) and open source. Fifteen of top 30 and seven of top ten world supercomputers use Lustre filesystem as storage, including the fastest: Tianhe-1A at the National Supercomputing Center in Tianjin, China; second fastest Jaguar at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

If you need lots of data, fast, Lustre might be the right choice for you.

Lustre Essentials

details of how to get Lustre (from our download site)

Existing Lustre e2fsprogs page should be expanded to mention all the tools on the download site and their purpose. We will have equivalents to everything on the Oracle download site within the next week or two so a simple placeholder will suffice in the interim.


Lustre Development

Existing Whamcloud toolset material and contribution information needs something better to glue it all together
