Lustre Enables High Performance, Massively Scalable Storage
Lustre is an open-source, distributed parallel file system software platform designed for scalability, high-performance, and high-availability.
Lustre is purpose-built to provide a coherent, global POSIX-compliant namespace for very large scale computer infrastructure, including the world's largest supercomputer platforms. It can support hundred's of petabytes of data storage and hundreds of gigabytes per second in simultaneous, aggregate throughput. Some of the largest current installations have individual file systems in excess of fifty petabytes of usable capacity, and have reported throughput speeds exceeding one terabyte/sec.
