Benefits

  Mature Commodity Hardware Ready

It is rigorously tested, reliable, and backed by Intel. No more vendor lock-in with expensive equipment is needed. Lustre has been in use in the world’s largest datacenters for over a decade and hardened in the harshest big data environments.

  Outstanding Performance

It enables fully parallel I/O across thousands of clients, servers, and storage devices. It has improved metadata scalability using Distributed Namespace (DNE) and scales down to provide fast parallel storage for smaller organisations.

  High Capacity

The object-based storage architecture can scale to tens of thousands of clients and petabytes of data.

  Affordable Customisation

Our product is based on the community release of Lustre software, and is hardware, server, and network neutral. Enterprises can scale their storage deployment horizontally, yet continue to have simple-to-manage storage.

Features

Scalable throughput with Multiple Servers

Files can be striped across multiple servers and disks with enormous storage capacity and I/O; data access throughput can exceed 1 terabyte per second.

Integrated support for Hadoop

With the software bridge provided, the Lustre file system can act as a parallel Hadoop data storage. Data rebalance between different Hadoop storage nodes becomes unnecessary.

Intel Manager for Lustre

The software suite comes with a unified pane for Lustre install, performance monitoring and daily management activities. It also has centralised, Graphical User Interface (GUI)-based administration for management.

Flexible Storage Schemes

Users can define target drives for individual files; and different isolated projects can run on separate drives for guaranteed performance.

Failover Support

With multipath storage devices, servers can be configured as high-availability active/active pairs. Failure downtime is minimised.

Single File System Namespace

The system is capable providing a single namespace on top of hundreds or thousands of logical volumes; zero-downtime expansion is possible.
