The Lustre file system was used for the rendering of a feature film
that opens in theaters nationwide today. Guess the correct name of the
movie, and you're eligible for a chance to win an AMC Gold Experience
ticket, worth approximately $10. (Just a note, if you check the
official rules -- Sun employees and their families are not eligible to
enter. Sorry!) Just send an e-mail to Lustrefilm@sun.com with the name
of the movie, along with your full name, title, company, mailing
address, telephone number and email address. Correct answers will be
entered into a drawing to be held on Monday. Four lucky winners will
each receive a movie ticket. Full rules can be found here.
The Lustre file system redefines scalability and provides groundbreaking I/O and metadata throughput. For the company that used Lustre to render this movie -- in addition to special effects sequences in previous films -- Lustre helped them dramatically increase I/O performance, scalability and reliability. It also gave them double the storage, at less cost than competing solutions.
So, if you think you know the answer, or simply want to hazard a guess, make sure to send an e-mail to Lustrefilm@sun.com with the name of the movie, along with your full name, title, company, mailing address, telephone number and email address. The answer and more details will be revealed on Monday! Here's the legal stuff:
