  • Frank Baetke, EOFS/Hewlett Packard Enterprise
  • Sarp Oral, OpenSFS/Indiana University


Lustre is the leading open source file system for HPC and is widely used and in more mission-critical installations. Lustre currently supports many HPC infrastructures beyond its traditional stronghold of scientific research including financial services, oil and gas, advanced manufacturing, and visual effects. At this year’s Community BoF, the worldwide community of developers, administrators, and solution providers will gather to discuss the current status of the Lustre community, OpenSFS and EOFS organizations, and also discuss recent feature developments, new challenges and corresponding opportunities for the next 5 years of Lustre. Summaries of LUG2017 and LAD 2017 will be presented.
