LUSTRE in HPC and Big Data: Status, New Features and Roadmap


  • Frank Baetke, EOFS/representing HPE

LUSTRE is the leading open source file system for HPC and now supports many HPC and AI/ML infrastructures even beyond its traditional stronghold in academia and scientific research. It has gained wide adoption in segments like financial services, the energy sector, manufacturing, life sciences and digital content creation.

At this year’s ISC BoF developers, administrators, users and solution providers will gather to discuss the current roadmap, new features, innovative developments and deployments as well as new challenges and the current status of the LUSTRE community that continues to drive LUSTRE forward. At the BoF we will focus on the recent feature developments and discuss how they will shape the next years of LUSTRE deployment around the world. Examples of important and requested features are: Small File performance improvements (Data on MDT), Erasure Coding and the ability to leverage multiple network interfaces (Multi-Rail LNet).

We will address benefits, experiences and issues with released versions up to LUSTRE 2.12.x but will also discuss features planned for releases including 2.13 scheduled for the summer of 2019. The session will start with a short introduction given by the EOFS and OpenSFS chairs about the status and structure of the LUSTRE community (including recent and upcoming community events)

The key part will be a presentation of the LUSTRE roadmap from the current release up to the end of 2020 and the related discussion topics with a special focus on the features, requirements and challenges.
