Lustre Enhances Flexibility for Big Data Era

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Intel Corporation have wrapped up a three-year project aimed at giving users of Lustre, the Department of Energy’s preferred parallel file system, more flexibility. And the results are impressive.

Lustre is the preferred file system for the leadership scientific computing community for a simple reason: it has an unprecedented ability to store and retrieve the large-scale data inherent in complex scientific simulations such as those run at ORNL’s Leadership Computing Facility, home to Titan, the nation’s most powerful system for open science.
