OpenSolaris ZFS on Lustre Servers for HPC
By bobwientzen on Jul 12, 2007
In another great show of momentum for Solaris tools for HPC, today Cluster File Systems (CFS) announced that the open source Lustre network file system will be using Sun's OpenSolaris (TM) ZFS (Zettabyte File System) disk file system on Lustre servers to verify and maintain data integrity.
The transition to OpenSolaris ZFS will help Lustre servers achieve greater scalability and robustness. More than half of the world's largest supercomputers run Lustre network file system - the University of Texas at Austin and the Tokyo Institute of Technology are two customer examples sited by CFS in their announcement.
Read what Marc Hamilton, Sun's vice president of marketing for Solaris, has to say about it in his blog. Or if you are interested in learning about the OpenSolaris ZFS community, you can visit: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/zfs/
