   The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology is an interdisciplinary
   graduate school offering a 5-year PhD program in Science. Over half of
   the faculty and students are recruited from outside Japan, and all
   education and research is conducted entirely in English. The mission of
   OIST is to promote and sustain the advancement of science and technology
   in Japan and throughout the world.
   At OIST, the Scientific Computing and Data Analysis Section (SCDA)
   promotes the effective use of High Performance Computing and high
   performance centralized data storage at all stages of research. OIST has
   been running Lustre for almost a decade and uses Lustre as the primary
   file-system for the HPC cluster. For most of this time the storage used
   has been traditional RAID-based hard disk drive storage. However the
   increasing demands placed by the workloads required from the researchers
   led OIST to explore the feasibility and option of using more performant
   storage.
   OIST recently expanded its Lustre storage by adding an All-Flash based
   Lustre filesystem for AI(Artificial Intelligence)/machine learning.
   All-Flash storage systems offer low latency, massive IOPS and can
   accelerate small random IOs as well as I/O bandwidth. Those mixed IOPS
   and I/O bandwidth performance characteristics are required for machine
   learning and to speed-up training workloads.
   This presentation provides fundamental performance evaluation of Lustre
   on an All-Flash storage system showing the current performance
   capability of Lustre on low latency NVMe/SSD devices. The presentation
   includes experimental test results with lustre-2.12 for comparison with
   lustre-2.10 and also proposes optimizations and tuning of Lustre
   filesystem for All-Flash storage system.
   As the use of machine-learning has grown across many research
   disciplines and because the relative cost of flash is coming down, it is
   expected that these findings will be of wide interest within the Lustre
   community.
