Strategic Lustre partnership extended

Share this on social media:

Whamcloud, a venture-backed company formed from worldwide high-performance computing (HPC) storage industry veterans, has announced an extended strategic partnership with the European company Bull. Under the new agreement Bull will enhance its support and professional services to Lustre customers worldwide, meaning that users will now have access to the company's complete range of services starting from building scalable architectures, up to effective deployment and service level agreement (SLA) driven operations and support.

The agreement builds on the existing technology partnership between the two companies and enables Bull to use its experience to provide validation and optimisation of Lustre on Bull’s Extreme Computing Bullx systems, integration with the Bullx supercomputer suite HPC software stack, plus further development of Lustre's administration and high-availability functionality.
