Tylersburg / Nehalem Solutions Supermicro® Total Solution for Lustre on OpenZFS


Lustre is the Parallel file system of choice for High Performance Computing (HPC) and large file applications. To meet the capacity and throughput requirements of HPC workloads, Lustre has traditionally required adoption of custom proprietary storage products leading to vendor lock-in and reduced innovation. The evolution of software defined high availability platforms like OpenZFS running on Linux now make it possible to meet the performance requirements of HPC on open industry standard x86 platforms, reducing storage costs by up to 90%. Supermicro in Partnership with Intel and some of the world's leading HPC integrators offers a total solution for Lustre on OpenZFS with Supermicro’s industry leading hardware, software and services infrastructure and Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre*. Supermicro Lustre ready hardware provides customers pre-tested and validated Lustre configurations reducing complexity and risk, controlling acquisition and operational costs and accelerating solution time to market.
