Solution Highlights

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 ZFS 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%.

Servers Direct in partnership with Intel and Supermicro offers a total solution for Lustre on ZFS with Supermicro's hardware, software and services infrastructure and Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre*. The total solution provides customers pre-designed, pre-tested Lustre configurations and optimized systems reducing complexity and risk, controlling acquisition and operational costs and accelerating solution time to market.
