White Papers

White Papers
Title Description/Source Date
Lustre File System Networking: High-Performance Features and Flexible Support for a Wide Array of Networks Information about Lustre networking that can be used to plan cluster file system deployments for optimal performance and scalability. Covered topics include Lustre message passing, Lustre Network Drivers, and routing in Lustre networks, and the paper describes how these features can be used to improve cluster storage management. November 2008
Lustre File System: High-Performance Storage Architecture and Scalable Cluster File System Basic information about the Lustre file system. Covered topics include general characteristics and markets in which Lustre has a strong presence, a typical Lustre file system configuration, an overview of Lustre networking (LNET), an introduction of Lustre capabilities that support high availability and rolling upgrades, discussion of file storage in a Lustre file system, additional features, and information about a how a Lustre file system compares to other shared file systems. October 2008
Pathways to Open Petascale Computing Derived from Sun’s innovative design approach and experience with very large supercomputing deployments, the Sun Constellation System provides the world's first open petascale computing environment — one built entirely with open and standard hardware and software technologies. Cluster architects can use the Sun Constellation System to design and rapidly deploy tightly-integrated, efficient, and cost-effective supercomputing grids and clusters that scale predictably from a few teraflops to over a petaflop. With a totally modular approach, processors, memory, interconnect fabric, and storage can all be scaled independently depending on individual needs. June 2008
Peta-Scale I/O with the Lustre File System Describes low-level infrastructure in the Lustre file system that addresses scalability in very large clusters. Covered topics include scalable I/O, locking policies and algorithms to cope with scale, implications for recovery, and other scalability issues. / ORNL February 2008
