The Windows Native Client (WNC) project is to deliver a port of the Lustre File System client for the Windows operating system. This port is based on Lustre 2.x code. This project will not port the Lustre servers to Windows. It is a port of the Lustre client only.

The Lustre driver for Windows will be based on the Windows Installable Filesystem (IFS) Kit.
