Inside The Lustre File System


Ever since the precursor to Lustre® (known as the ObjectBased Filesystem, or ODBFS) was developed at Carnegie Mellon University in 1999, Lustre has been at the heart of high performance computing, providing the necessary throughput and scalability to many of the fastest supercomputers in the world. Lustre has experienced a number of changes and, despite the code being open source, the ownership has changed hands a number of times. From the original company started by Dr. Peter Braam (Cluster File Systems, or CFS), which was acquired by Sun Microsystems in 2008—which was in turn acquired by Oracle in 2010—to the acquisition of the Lustre assets by Xyratex in 2013, the open source community has supported the proliferation and acceptance of Lustre.
